Bill Cosby leaves his sexual assault trial at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pa., last month.

The sexual-assault case against Bill Cosby that ended in a mistrial last month is scheduled to be retried in November, a judge ordered Thursday.

Montgomery County Judge Steven T. O’Neill directed Cosby, who will turn 80 next Wednesday, to appear at the Norristown courthouse on Nov. 6 to again face three counts of aggravated indecent assault.

A jury spent 52 hours deliberating over five days before concluding its members were hopelessly deadlocked. O’Neill then declared a mistrial on June 17.

Prosecutors alleged that Cosby drugged and sexually abused Andrea Constand in 2004.

Cosby has been accused of sexually assaulting dozens of women since the 1960s, but has only faced criminal charges in Constand’s case.
