    A judge has scheduled a new date for Bill Cosby's retrial on charges he drugged and molested a woman more than a decade ago.

    Judge Steven O'Neill on Friday ordered the retrial to begin on April 2. He says jury selection can get underway before then.

    The retrial was initially set for November, but last month O'Neill granted a request by Cosby's new lawyers to delay it so they could get up to speed on the case.

    The 80-year-old comedian's first trial in June ended in a hung jury.
