4:00 pm
a celebrity version of he said/she said. but what hangs in the balance of a -- and today at the courthouse another alleged victim who did not testify but is here suping the others, got into a war of words with cosby supporters each out shouting there other. and security guards asked them to step down and they does and went their separate ways. it was heated there for a moment. and of course bill cosby came in a few hours earlier he did not witness that confrontation but is still in the courthouse now awaiting a verdict. the charges as we read them to you. three felony counts. they are aggravated indecent assault. that is without andrea constand's consent and aggravated assault that she was unconscious and aggravated
4:01 pm
indecent assault that the drugs impaired her judgment. they are struggling with all three of them. they carry five to ten-year sentences each. and they would run concurrently. vernon odom has more on the deadlock and what went on in the courtroom today. >> some dramatics in the courtroom this morning or late morning i should say as the jury announced they were deadlock but the judge sent them back to look at the charges against bill cosby once again and no word from the jury since then. >> bill cosby looked tired and emotionally drained when he arrived for the fourth day of deliberations so did the jury when they aemerged from 30 hours of talks to tell judge o'neil, quote, we cannot come to a unanimous consensus on any count. the defense immediately call
4:02 pm
ford a mistrial and the judge denied the motion and sent the jury all from the pittsburgh area back to the jury room to keep trying and the cosby team went on the offensive. >> it shows the not guilty mr. cosby has been saying the entire time many that he is not gulty of these charges they tried to bring about. >> andrea constand showed no emotion. and the seven men and five women continued their deliberations. civil rights attorney gloria allred says it's not over yet. >> this deadlock could change. they are deadlocked on all three counts, after further deliberation perhaps after lunch, as well. it could be that they could reach a different decision.
4:03 pm
>> reporter: monica the question at this hour will the the judge be forced to declare a mistrial here no answer yet but the former words of former district attorney bruce caster come to mind here, he told andrea constand here criminal charges would probably not hold up in a jury trial. he told her that more then a decade ago. i'm vernon odom, channel 6 "action news". >> thank you vernon. of course technically in our american system there is no time limit imposed on jurors in any situation similar to this. they could take days if not weeks to decide as they continue to deliberate the three counts but in a practical sense as vernon eluded to, they are from point see questered in a hotel. the likelihood is they won't stay for weeks and months but time will tell.
4:04 pm
lets go to sara bloomquist talking to experts for what is going on in the jurors' minds. >> they are not surprised they thought that the prosecution had an uphill climb with the case given the amount of time since the alleged incident happened and andrea constand remained contact with cosby after this happened. we talked to the legal experts and the fact that the jury was deadlocked and what may come next. the cosby jury is deadlocked but that may not be the end of this case. judge o'neil senthe jury back to continue deliberating. >> saying i appreciate you are deadlocked but go back in and figure it out at this point. >> he is not associated with the cosby case and he says that juries come back with verdicts after telling the judge they are deadlocked. i would say more often than not they come back with the verdict
4:05 pm
at that point. however, they could come back and say we can't come back with a verdict and that say hung jury at that point. >> she says that the judge has wide discretion for how long the jury can deliberate. >> he is a strict judge and push them as long as they can. they are a sequestered jury and that is another thing, the fact that they are sequestered they came up with a decision quickly so they can get home. in this case the judge will try to push them as long as they can. >> reporter: now both legal experts told us this is highly unusual. most juries come back in the matter of hours and this is nearly a week and in most cases with most juries when they are deadlocked it's one or two people that are holding out. here we are not sure what is happening in the jury room.
4:06 pm
>> thank you so much sara. the decision lies in the jury but judge steven o'neil has a key role to play for a judge to ask a second time or a third time if jurors come back and say they are hung they must keep trying. i'm monica malpass, back to you. >> thank you. you can continue to follow this story at trial. there you can find the latest social media posts from the team of reporters and dozens of photos and videos from the montgomery county courthouse. turning now to the investigation at the ambush at a baseball in alexandria, virginia. authorities are looking at a cell phone, computer and camera all found inside of the gunman's van. the van was found parked near the shooting scene that left a congressman critically injured.

4:09 pm
