Cosby supporters and opponents sound off after mistrial

Cosby trial reaction

NORRISTOWN, Pa. - Bill Cosby supporters and opponents gathered outside the Montgomery County courthouse after the mistrial was declared.

"I think the mistrial is wonderful," said a woman who didn't want to give her name.

"We were hoping for not guilty but we will settle for a mistrial and a deadlock," she added.

"He's a role model for me. He's the one that's helped me raise my kids to be what they are today," said Doris Robbins.

More than 50 women have accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault.

Cosby was on trial for allegedly sexually assaulting former Temple University employee Andrea Constand at this home in 2004.

"We're in the 21st century and we're still subjected to 17th century rape and plunder mentality. A woman's worth was on trial," said Victoria Valentino.

Valentino said she was also assaulted by Cosby.

The Montgomery County District Attorney said he wants to re-try Cosby within the next few months.
