NORRISTOWN, Pennsylvania (AP):
Bill Cosby's spokesman says a jury's struggle to reach a verdict in the comedian's sexual assault trial shows it has doubts about the accuser's story.

The jury told a judge on their fourth day of deliberations Thursday that it's deadlocked. They were told to keep deliberating.

Cosby is charged with drugging and molesting a woman in his Philadelphia-area home in 2004. He says their sexual encounter was consensual.

Cosby's spokesman, Andrew Wyatt, says the impasse shows that jurors are "conflicted about the inconsistencies" in accuser Andrea Constand's account.

Constand's lawyer, Dolores Troiani, says only that the jury is "apparently working very hard" to reach agreement on the charges.
