The jury in the Bill Cosby sex assault trial is deadlocked after 30 hours of deliberations.

They informed the judge just moments ago that they were unable to come to a consensus on any of the counts - Cosby is charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault. Each carries a maximum 10-year prison term.

The judge has told them to keep trying to reach a verdict, as deliberations now continue into a fourth day. Reports are that the jury will deliberate until 9 p.m., tonight.

The jury consists of seven men and five women who have been sequestered to a hotel room for the duration of their deliberation.
