Cosby venue could move to California in sex abuse lawsuit Cosby venue could move to California in sex abuse lawsuit

Prosecutors said they plan to retry Cosby after the mistrial was declared. "Much to what Mrs. Cosby spoke on in her statement is the sensationalism brought on by the media", Benson said. "Any further information about public plans will be given at the appropriate time".

Wyatt also told host Janice Rogers that the issue of sexual assault "can affect any young person, especially young athletes of today".

Wyatt said Cosby would take questions from the audience at these events, but wouldn't be able to answer all the questions because of pending litigation.

"These groups would like for Mr. Cosby to share that people in the judicial system can use their powers to annul deals for personal agenda and political ambitions", he said.

The proposal drew immediate criticism from a lawyer representing some of the dozens of women who have leveled sex assault accusations at the 79-year-old entertainer, whose long career was built on a family-friendly style of comedy.

"Him having a town hall meeting on educating people about sexual assault is the same as Jeffrey Dahmer hosting a town hall meeting on the joy of cooking, neither of which I will be attending", Kirkpatrick said.

Instead of sexual assault, Benson said, "it is about continuing on with what Mr. Cosby started 50 years ago when he began in the entertainment business, which is the importance of community, importance of education". "He never meant to speak about sexual assault".

District Attorney Kevin Steele holds a news conference after a mistrial in Bill Cosby's sexual assault case in Norristown, Pa., Saturday, June 17, 2017. "He would never do anything that undermined the import of this issue". Because this is bigger than Bill Cosby.

One of those accusers is Judy Huth, who accused the comedian of forcing her to perform a sex act on him in a bedroom at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles around 1974 when she was 15.

A California court has tentatively set a July 30, 2018, date for trial of a lawsuit that accuses Bill Cosby of sexually assaulting a teenage girl at the Playboy Mansion more than 40 years ago.

In May, Cosby said that he hoped to get back to performing comedy and motivational speaking after the criminal trial ends.

In the meantime, Agrusa said the defense team is busy "preparing for Round Two". "I will repeat. These town hall meetings are not about sexual assault", she told CNN.

"I think he'd like to be able to publicly perform, I just don't think the timing is right", she said.
