Comedian Bill Cosby will be retried on three charges of assault, and the trial is expected to start on November 6, according to ABC News.

Cosby was charged with aggravated indecent assault for allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in January 2004.

Cosby's first trial was in June, but the jurors could not agree on a verdict. As a result, Steven O'Neill, the Montgomery County, Pennsylvania judge overseeing the trial, declared a mistrial. 

Constand is one of over sixty women who have accused Cosby of similar crimes.

Business Insider reached out to Cosby's reps for comment, but did not receive a response before publication.
