Stay updated on my coverage of the trail “part deux” as it unfolds over the next weeks. New images will be added to this board as they become available for licensing.

In the summer of 2017, after 11 days court days the first attempt ended in a mistrial. Many of the scenes are expected to be the same as well as most of the characters partaking in this event, some things will be different. Follow along on Twitter for updates 

The same will be the daily walk-ins of Mr. Cosby as arrives, with entourage and legal defense team in tow, to report for the 9am start of the day. The trial is expected to start on Monday April 2nd and is said to last a month.
