"#RapeCulture is Bill Cosby planning town halls on how married men & male athletes can avoid sexual assault charges", the Women's March also tweeted.

"Mr. Cosby wants to get back to work", spokesman Andrew Wyatt said on WBRC's "Good Day Alabama" in Birmingham on Thursday. "This issue can affect any young person, especially young athletes of today".

Laughing, he added, "And it also affects married men".

Bill Cosby's publicistAndrew Wyattrevealed that his client is planning on teaching teens about sexual assault prevention following the disgraced star's sexual assault case, which ended in a mistrial. "Anything, at this point, can be considered sexual assault, and it's a very good thing to be educated about the law". After 30 hours of deliberations, the jury told the judge that they were deadlocked, but ultimately pressed on for an additional 22 hours before giving up hope of an unanimous resolution.

"Cosby ready to share his sexual assault techniques with budding young assaulters", wrote Terry J. Clark‏.

Prosecutors have said they plan to re-try Cosby again within the year. Cosby was charged shortly before the statute of limitations was set to expire.

Prior to the trial, Cosby told CNN host Michael Smerconish on his Sirius XM radio show that he wanted to get back to comedy and motivational speaking after the case was over.

The juror said she should have gone to Cosby's home only if she was "dressed properly and left the incense in the store", referring to a gift that she brought him when the two formed a friendship before the alleged assault. Burress' act and the release of the 2015 civil court transcript rekindled the focus on Cosby, and since then, dozens of other women have come forward with their stories.

According to the juror, ten of them thought Cosby was guilty of digitally penetrating Constand without her consent and giving her drugs that would impair and prevent her from resisting. "People would just start crying out of nowhere, we wouldn't even be talking about [the case] - and people would just start crying".

Prosecutors will pursue a retrial in the coming months. He added that the comedian "has paid dearly" already for the 60-plus public sexual assault allegations. "I think with a jury, perhaps some may have judged Andrea by what they would have done in her place - perplexing to some - rather than that in fact a non-consensual sexual assault did occur".
