The jury for  Bill Cosby‘s criminal trial is deadlocked on a verdict and has been ordered by the judge to continue deliberations.

The jurors have so far deliberated for more than 30 hours over four days. The comedian is accused of sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004.

Cosby has been charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault, each of which carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, with no minimum, and a $25,000 fine. The charges stem from a 2004 sexual encounter with Constand.

She claims that he drugged and molested her, but the former television star said in a decade-old deposition that their relations were consensual and that he gave her a Benadryl only to help her relax.

If convicted, Cosby will be required to register as a sex offender.
