Sixty women, including Constand, have accused Cosby of drugging and/or sexually assaulting them, or attempting to do so. "If the court allows more accusers to testify next time it might make a difference".
The entertainer had no visible reaction in court.
She also did not mention that cheating Cosby himself in his own previous agreement with Constand admitted he provided her with pills to relax and engaged in sex with her. Prosecutors rejected filing a case against Cosby based on Goins' allegations, which they said investigators could not corroborate.
When the trial started June 5, the jury of seven men and five women were bussed in from Allegheny County near Pittsburgh and have since been sequestered in a hotel.
How do I describe the judge?
Steele declined comment on a statement from Cosby's wife, Camille, which called him "heinously and exploitively ambitious". Totally unethical. How do I describe many, but not all, general media? "Overtly arrogant, collaborating with the district attorney", she said in her statement, which was tweeted by her husband and read by an associate of the public relations firm representing Cosby.
But it was Cosby's reputation as a public moralist who urged young people to pull up their saggy trousers and start acting responsibly that prompted a federal judge to unseal portions of an explosive deposition he gave more than a decade ago as part of Constand's civil lawsuit against him.
McMonagle said he respected Cosby's efforts to keep his family out of the courtroom spotlight.
Constand did not speak to reporters, but her attorney, Dolores Troiani, said Constand was a "very spiritual person who believes everything happens for a reason". Each alleges that Cosby once sexually assaulted her, and that, in denying the charges, he has stigmatized them and smeared them as liars.
His popularity also made him an in-demand product endorser, and he appeared in commercials for Jell-O, Coca-Cola, Ford and others.
Steele says he will retry the 79-year-old comedian on three counts of aggravated indecent assault. The jury deliberated for more than 52 hours over six days. Cosby's lawyer says he and Constand were lovers sharing a consensual sexual encounter.
In more than a dozen notes to the judge, the jurors asked to revisit huge chunks of trial testimony, including Constand's account from the witness stand, her statements to police from 2005 and Cosby's sworn depositions taken in 2005 and 2006, when Constand filed a civil lawsuit against him.
Though Cosby did not testify, he attended proceedings every day.
The jury had been instructed by the judge to work into the weekend to reach a verdict, after they first revealed that they were deadlocked on the case on Thursday. "And that in itself is a hard defamation case".
Criminal charges aside, Cosby also faces several civil suits - 10 of them, to be exact.
The case has helped demolish Cosby's nice-guy image, cultivated during his eight-year run as Dr. Cliff Huxtable on the top-rated "The Cosby Show" in the 1980s and '90s.
Cosby was eventually charged in December 2015, just days before the statute of limitations was set to expire.
