Bill Cosby to be retried in sex assault case of university administrator

Entertainer Bill Cosby will be retried on charges of sexually assaulting a former employee of his alma mater in November, five months after his first trial on those charges ended in a hung jury.
     
The 79-year-old comedian would be tried again beginning on November 6.
     
He is accused of the sexual assault of Temple University administrator Andrea Constand in his Philadelphia-area home in 2004.       
 
Cosby built a long career on a family-friendly style of comedy exemplified by the 1980s TV hit The Cosby Show before dozens of women came forward to accuse him of sex assault in a series of incidents dating back to the 1960s.
     
Cosby is also awaiting two trials over civil lawsuits filed against him by accusers, with both scheduled for the summer of 2018.
