Dozens of women have stepped forward since 2014 to accuse Bill Cosby of sexual misconduct dating back decades. But the allegations of only one threaten to send him to jail. On June 5, Cosby began standing trial in Norristown for an alleged 2004 assault on Andrea Constand, a former Temple University athletics employee.

Here's a recap of the latest developments and recent coverage:


Day 11, June 17: The case ended in a mistrial, when jurors reported that they were hopelessly deadlocked and could not reach a verdict. The outcome spares Cosby, at least for now, from spending the rest of his life in prison, though prosecutors have vowed to retry the celebrity.

Day 10, June 16: By the fifth day of deliberations, the jurors had spent longer debating the charges than the attorneys did presenting and defending it.  After pushing through a reported deadlock on Thursday, they returned to the courtroom throughout the day Friday with six requests to re-hear testimony.  At various points, some jurors nodded and smiled, while others nodded off and appeared weary.  Cosby tweeted thankful photos of his supporters and after adjourning, stopped in front of news cameras outside to thank the jury for its hard work. Minutes earlier, Cosby's attorneys had again requested a mistrial. Judge Steven T. O'Neill has repeatedly refused to declare a mistrial, saying the jury must continue as long as legitimate deliberation was taking place. The jurors were dismissed after 52 hours of deliberations, scheduled to resume Saturday.  (READ MORE: For a fifth night, Cosby deliberations continue)

Day 9, June 15: Just after 11 a.m., jurors told Judge Steven T. O'Neill they were at an impasse on all three counts of aggravated indecent assault against Cosby.  O'Neill sent them back to continue trying. "While you should not hesitate to reexamine your own views or change your opinion if your opinion is erroneous, do not feel compelled to surrender your honest belief," he told the panel. "If after further deliberations, you are still deadlocked on some or all the charges, you should report that to me."  Jurors showed little reaction to the judge's instruction.  Outside the courthouse, supporters and opponents clashed in emotional reactions to what could end up as a mistrial. After another 8 hours in the courthouse, the jurors were sent back to their hotel, setting the stage for Day 5 of deliberations.  (READ MORE: 4th day of deliberations could prove critical in Cosby trial | Tempers flare outside courtroom as threat of Cosby deadlock looms | If Cosby jury deadlocks: What happens next? | Cosby mistrial?

Day 8, June 14: Jurors returned at 9 a.m. for the third day of deliberations. Twelve hours later, they ended their discussions without reaching a verdict. They again asked to rehear key evidence, including Andrea Constand's account of the night she says Cosby drugged and assaulted her and what Cosby told a detective about the encounter . Jurors appeared weary: Some looked down or rested their hands on their chins as a court reporter read Constand's testimony. One slouched low in his chair and stared up at the ceiling. One fell asleep, his head nodding off to one side. Cosby, too, looked tired, yawning as he sat with his lawyers. By the time jurors left the courthouse at 9 p.m., they had spent a total of 28 hours deliberating. (READ MORE: A wearied Cosby jury ends third day without a verdict)

Day 7, June 13: Jurors returned at 9 a.m. to resume deliberations. Several times, they returned to the courtroom with requests to review past testimony from Cosby and others. At one point jurors asked the judge to clarify some of the phrasing in Count 3 — drugging Constand "without her knowledge."  When the judge told them he couldn't clarify that any further, one juror was seen with his head in his hand and another sighed.  Shortly after, Cosby's team spoke outside the courthouse, telling reporters that "This court has not given [Cosby] a fair and impartial trial," and reading a statement from a Temple University employee whose testimony was barred by the judge Monday as hearsay.  The jurors were released back to their sequestered hotel around 9:15 p.m., with the deliberation clock registering 16 hours.

Day 6, June 12: Bill Cosby's defense team called just one witness — a Cheltenham detective — and then rested its case. Cosby did not take the stand. Defense attorney Brian J. McMonagle also delivered his closing argument, painting accuser Andrea Constand as a liar who gave conflicting accounts about her encounter with the entertainer. The prosecution also wrapped up its closing arguments, with D.A. Kevin Steele telling the jury:  "She's out and you're doing stuff to her? It's not right. And it's criminal." After four hours of deliberation and two questions to the judge, the jury was dismissed for the night. The jurors were to be kept separate until deliberations resumed.

The defense: The defense of Bill Cosby has been a war waged on two fronts. His lawyers urged jurors to forget that he is one of the world's most recognizable celebrities and treat him as an ordinary citizen. But outside the Montgomery County Courthouse, the Cosby publicity machine has lost no opportunity to remind worldwide media audiences of the entertainer's fame. Those conflicting approaches influenced the single biggest question that still lingered over the trial as his defense prepared to begin its case: Would Bill Cosby take the stand himself?

Day 5, June 9: Prosecutors in Bill Cosby's sex-assault trial closed their case Friday, ending five days of evidence and testimony by letting jurors hear the 79-year-old entertainer's admission that he used to get Quaaludes, a powerful sedative, to use in sexual encounters with women. The defense will begin its presentation Monday and, despite saying earlier he did not intend to testify in his own defense, a Cosby spokesman said the entertainer may be rethinking that decision.

Day 4, June 8: Bill Cosby's description in a 2005 deposition of the night Andrea Constand says he drugged and sexually assaulted her was read aloud in court by a detective, likely marking the only time jurors will hear the defendant in his own words. The reading of the transcript came on the same day a detective who in 2005 investigated Constand's claim suggested he and other investigators were caught off guard when Montgomery County's then-chief prosecutor abruptly shut down the probe.

The day after Constand's testimony concluded, a transcript of an in-chambers conference obtained by the Inquirer and the Daily News revealed that Judge Steven T. O'Neill blocked a defense attempt to grill Cosby's accuser about her prior alleged relationship with an unnamed celebrity athlete.

Day 3, June 7: Constand returned to the courtroom for a second day of pointed defense attacks. But by the time she left the witness stand after more than seven hours of questioning over two days, Constand had held firm to her allegation that Cosby drugged and assaulted her 13 years earlier. Constand's mother also testified. Gianna Constand told jurors her daughter had nightmares after the alleged attack, and that when she learned about it a year after it occurred, she called the entertainer to confront him. In that conversation, she said, Cosby acknowledged having sexual contact with Andrea, explained it in graphic detail and insisted that it had been consensual. Later in the call, she said, Cosby apologized. Jurors also heard a recording of another phone call, in which Cosby offered to pay to send Andrea to graduate school.  (READ MORE: After hours on the stand, Constand sticks to her story)

As the trial wore on, court staff finally began making headway Wednesday in their ongoing battle against prohibited cell phone use in the courtroom. Brian X. McCrone, a reporter for NBC10, had his credentials yanked and was banned from the courtroom after he was caught checking his phone in court. Hours later, celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred, who represents many of Cosby's other accusers, was also booted for a short period after her phone rang during Constand's testimony.

Day 2, June 6: Constand, the central accuser in the case, broke her years-long silence and publicly confronted Cosby in the courtroom. In more than three hours of testimony, she walked jurors through the January 2004 night when she said Cosby invited her to his Cheltenham home, gave her three blue pills and assaulted her. In graphic terms, Constand calmly and confidently described over three hours of testimony how he she felt paralyzed as he groped her breasts and slid his hand between her legs. She blinked away tears after describing the alleged assault, but remained composed even as Cosby's lawyers peppered her with questions about inconsistencies in her story over time. Also on the second day of trial, jurors heard from the Constand's brother-in-law; the mother of Kelly Johnson, another Cosby accuser who testified on the first day of the trial; a lawyer involved in Johnson's 1996 workers compensation claim; and a Canadian detective to whom Constand first reported her allegations in 2005.

As Constand was speaking directly to the jury, she was speaking for an entirely different group of spectators. Three of Cosby's other accusers have religiously attended court proceedings so far. They claimed vindication for their own alleged attacks, ones too old to be prosecuted, in having the opportunity to witness Constand's testimony.

Day 1, June 5: Cosby's long-awaited trial opened in Norristown. His former agent's assistant described how the entertainer allegedly drugged and sexually assaulted her in a Los Angeles hotel room two decades ago, a tactic prosecutors contend foreshadowed the alleged attack at his Cheltenham home eight years later that led to his arrest. Kelly Johnson, now a 55-year-old from Atlanta, had previously gone by the pseudonym "Kacey" in court filings. She is the only one of the more than 60 additional women who have made claims against Cosby who will be permitted to testify at trial. But the defense was ready for Johnson, with a blistering cross-examination that highlighted several inconsistencies in her story.

The accuser: With Cosby's trial underway, attention is back on the one woman whose story now threatens to convict him. Despite months of court filings, press coverage and debate chronicling all contours of the case, it is easy to forget that Andrea Constand, the trial's central accuser, has never before spoken publicly about the night in 2004 when she says Cosby drugged and assaulted her. Prosecutors plan to present other evidence to bolster her claims, such as Cosby's own 2005 deposition and a secretly recorded phone call with the entertainer, but in the end the case will live or die based on how Constand comes across to jurors on the witness stand — and the defense believes she has a credibility problem. (READ MORE: As Cosby trial begins, focus shifts toward woman who could convict him)

The local impact: Cosby's trial is not only the biggest media spectacle ever to come to Norristown, it is likely to be the most closely watched celebrity legal case since O.J. Simpson's 1995 murder trial. More than 100 reporters and television crew members have sought credentials to cover the case, and the trial is expected to draw scores of spectators, including some of Cosby's other accusers and supporters. Whether the trial will hurt or help the perpetually struggling borough is unclear. (READ MORE: Will the Cosby trial be good for Norristown?)


Day 3, May 24: The panel that will decide Bill Cosby's fate was finalized Wednesday, as lawyers completed their search for 12 jurors and six alternates for the entertainer's sex-assault trial. After accusations of racial discrimination from the defense, Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin R. Steele dismissed those claims as "nonsense about optics." In the end, two black people — a middle-aged man, and a young woman — made it onto the panel. Two others were selected as alternates. (READ MORE: Jury complete for Bill Cosby's sex assault trial)

Day 2, May 23: Defense lawyers on Tuesday accused prosecutors of intentionally excluding black people from the jury that will decide Bill Cosby's fate, as the court came close to filling out the panel. With 11 jurors seated, Cosby attorney Brian McMonagle objected when prosecutors moved to block an African American woman from the 12th and final seat on the jury for the sex-assault trial.

Day 1, May 22: Five jurors were chosen as the jury selection process began in Pittsburgh. More than one-third of the 100 potential jurors called said they had already formed an opinion about Cosby's guilt or innocence.

The set-up: Cosby arrived May 22 in Pittsburgh, a city deeply divided over the sexual-abuse scandal that has tarnished his career, to pick the 12 men and women who will decide his fate. Though the entertainer has made several well-received public appearances in the city in the past – including a raucous 2007 commencement speech at Carnegie Mellon University – the scandal has eroded his popularity among some. Still, some defenders stand by him. (READ MORE: Amid media blitz, Cosby seeks open-minded jurors in Pittsburgh)
