The drama surrounding Bill Cosby’s latest sex assault trial ratcheted up after a judge had to halt proceedings on Tuesday afternoon.

The shocking development occurred when the legal team for the disgraced comedian, who has been accused of using knockout drugs to abuse up to 60 women, accidentally spilled to the packed courtroom that jurors in his first trial last summer were unable to agree on a final verdict.

Defense lawyer Kathleen Bliss had been cross-examining the prosecution’s witness, Forensic Psychiatrist Dr. Barbara Ziv.

“The article reported you commenting on the jury’s inability to reach a verdict and convict Mr. Cosby,” Bliss told Ziv.

Prosecutor Kristen Feden immediately and forcefully objected.

The opposing teams had a sidebar with Judge Steven O’Neill, who was reportedly visibly angry over the incident, and the trial resumed.

“Any evidence that may have occurred in the history of this case or may not have occurred in this case is not evidence,” O’Neill instructed the jurors.

As Radar reported, Cosby, 80, faces three counts of aggravated sexual assault and, if convicted, years in prison for the 2004 attack of former Temple University employee Andrea Constand.
