Bill Cosby spokesman says town halls are planned

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - A spokesman for Bill Cosby said a series of town halls is planned to help educate young people about the problems their misbehavior could create.

Spokesman Andrew Wyatt told a Birmingham, Alabama, TV station that Cosby is eager to get back to work following a mistrial over the weekend in his suburban Philadelphia sexual assault trial.

Wyatt said Thursday the issue "is bigger than Bill Cosby" and can affect any young person, especially young athletes. He said young people need to know what they may face when "they're hanging out and partying" and doing "certain things" they shouldn't.

Cosby was accused of drugging and molesting a woman at his home in Cheltenham Township, Montgomery County, in 2004. He said the encounter was consensual.

A juror told ABC News the jury couldn't reach a consensus after voting 10-2 to convict on two counts against Cosby.
