The defense side in Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial is declaring victory and going on the attack after jurors deadlocked and the judge declared a mistrial.

Spokesman Andrew Wyatt said Saturday that "Cosby's power is back."

Cosby's wife, Camille Cosby, slammed prosecutors for bringing the case to court. She issued a statement calling District Attorney Kevin Steele "heinously and exploitatively ambitious." She also attacked the judge, the accuser's lawyers and the media.

The jury deliberated more than 52 hours on charges that Cosby drugged and molested Andrea Constand in his Philadelphia area home in 2004.

Steele says he will retry the 79-year-old comedian on three counts of aggravated indecent assault. Cosby's lawyer says he and Constand were lovers sharing a consensual sexual encounter.

Cosby will remain free on $1 million bail.
