Bill Cosby’s trial last month in suburban Philadelphia cost the local government $219,000 – and more than half of that went toward overtime for deputies, detectives, security guards and court personnel.

A breakdown has been released by Montgomery County – which says it amassed about $46,000 in hotel stays for jurors brought in from Pittsburgh to hear the case – while meals for jurors amounted to $14,000.

The costs to run a video and audio feed to an overflow courtroom – came to $16,000.

The jury wasn’t able to come to a verdict – and 80-year-old Cosby is scheduled for retrial in November – accused of drugging and molesting a woman more than a decade ago.
