Jury members, in the trial of comedian Bill Cosby, have spent more than 30 hours in deliberations and say that they "cannot come to a unanimous consensus on any of these counts." Cosby is charged with multiple felony counts of aggravated indecent assault. Prosecutors claim there is a pattern of drugging and sexually assaulting women while Cosby's defense team argue that the encounters were consensual and "romantic," reports NPR.
