Bill Cosby’s defence attorney wants off the case – before a November retrial.
The sex assault trial ended with a deadlocked jury.
Lead defence lawyer Brian McMonagle of Philadelphia says Cosby is taking steps to secure new lawyers – for his retrail on charges that he drugged and molested Andrea Constand – more than a decade ago.
On June 17th prosecutors found themselves having to begin again – after a judge declared a mistrial – because the jury failed to reach a verdict in more than 52 hours of deliberations.
Cosby, the 80-year-old comedian and actor has said his encounter with the former Temple University worker was consensual.
