Here's what happens now that Bill Cosby's jury is deadlocked

Cosby faces up to 10 years in prison on each of the three counts, but they could be merged for sentencing purposes.

They have spent days asking to have testimony read back, including Constand's trial testimony as well as the first report she made to police in 2005.

Celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred, who represents several women who have also accused Cosby of sexual assault, said that jury deadlocks were not unusual and that she was not frustrated by the deadlock.

Wyatt spotted Joe Molinaro, his wife and two children outside the Montgomery County Court House earlier in the week.

According to Cosby's representative, Andrew Wyatt, The Cosby Show star is in "good spirits" as he awaits the verdict.

Five minutes later, after realizing he'd just sent the panel back to work, he called them back in again.

There was no message included with the video, which was soundtracked with the Harlem Globetrotters theme, and no explanation for why there was a basketball hoop in the courthouse. It says, "ALWAYS FOLLOW THROUGH". Cosby was a trustee at the time of the alleged assault.

Cosby, the 79-year-old entertainer once beloved for his brand of family-friendly comedy, is accused of drugging and sexually assaulting Constand, then 31, at his home near Philadelphia in 2004.

"This is an incredible jury that has just acted with incredible dignity and fidelity", O'Neill said.

While many in the courthouse have been speculating about the jury's progress, it has been couched under a thick veil of confidentiality - the jurors have been warned against talking to the media while judicial officials refused to tell The New York Times whether they are able to have a computer over the course of their sequester.

There were fans and protestors outside of the courthouse, with some of them protesting the news and others hugging one another in happiness. But the atmosphere remained calm, with accusers and supporters even holding hands at times.

"It's not over until it's over, and it's not over yet", she said.

Supporters held signs that said, "There is no rape".

She added, "They can not reach a verdict until all of them agree".

O'Neill, the Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, judge overseeing the case, read a set of standard charging instructions nudging the jury to keep working. O'Neill told them to continue deliberations in the hopes of breaking their impasse.

Cosby is charged with drugging and molesting a woman in his Philadelphia-area home in 2004.

Cosby's lawyer said he and Constand were lovers sharing a consensual moment of intimacy.

More than a dozen excerpts from Cosby's deposition, including the "friends" comment and his acknowledgment that he'd gone "somewhere between permission and rejection" during a previous encounter with Constand.

As the rhythmic drumming continued, Victoria Valentino, a former Playboy bunny from the 1960s who says Cosby assaulted her decades ago, danced to the music on the courthouse steps.

Constand testified she was paralyzed by the pills and unable to fight Cosby off. #Bill Cosby's spokesperson believes that this deadlock shows the truth of Cosby, and points to the fact that he is not guilty.

Jurors have been debating the charges against Cosby for more than 27 hours since getting the case Monday. Thursday morning's motion was denied by the judge.

Jackson stood by her account, telling The Associated Press in a phone interview that Cosby's lawyers are "going to say whatever they need to say". He has said it was Benadryl, a cold and allergy medicine.

Jurors return to the deliberation room Thursday morning, but the long road to a verdict is taking a toll.

Some jurors appeared angry, the judge sounded exasperated and Constand's mother broke down in tears Wednesday.
