The retrial of Bill Cosby on sexual assault charges is set to begin on Monday in Philadelphia.

Cosby is charged with drugging and molesting former basketball player Andrea Constand in 2004 at his Philadelphia home. The comedian insists the sexual encounter was consensual. The trial that could last about a month will be the first time the case returns to court since the #MeToo movement which some analysts predict will have an impact on the proceedings of the case this time around. A judge declared a mistrial in June after jurors failed to reach a verdict.

Guest:

Ambrosio Rodriguez, former prosecutor and criminal defense attorney; he led the sex crimes team in the Riverside County D.A.’s office
