NORRISTOWN, Montgomery County — The judge has set the date for the start of Bill Cosby’s new trial: November 6, 2017.

A tweet from the Montgomery County District Attorney’s office said Judge Steven O’Neill, who declared a mistrial in last month’s sexual assault trial of the comedian after the jury remained hopelessly deadlocked, will preside over the new trial later this year.
