(Newser) – Bill Cosby wants to get back to work, his spokespeople said Wednesday on Good Day Alabama, and one of his first plans is to host a series of town halls starting in July to educate young people. About what, exactly? Sexual assault. "Laws are changing. The statute of limitations for victims of sexual assault are being extended," said Ebonee Benson, per a video clip obtained by TMZ. "So this is why people need to be educated on, a brush against a shoulder, you know, anything at this point can be considered sexual assault and it's a good thing to be educated about the laws."

Added Andrew Wyatt, "This issue can affect any young person, especially young athletes of today. And they need to know what they're facing. When they're hanging out and partying, when they're doing certain things they shouldn't be doing. And it also affects, you know, married men." Also in Cosby news, a second juror came forward Thursday, telling WPXI that the jury was truly deadlocked, with votes typically coming down along 7-5 or 5-7 lines during deliberations. That assertion is at odds with the words of another juror who said there were only two holdouts.
