Bill Cosby back in court for jury deliberations

Bill Cosby arrives for his sexual assault trial with his wife Camille Cosby at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown Pa. Monday Bill Cosby back in court for jury deliberations

Cosby is accused of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his home outside Philadelphia in 2004.

The jury is considering three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault. Jurors deliberated for four hours before stopping for the night. She settled a 2005 civil lawsuit against Cosby for an undisclosed sum, though jurors did not hear about that case. The judge said he was not permitted to give any definition of the phrase, and the jury resumed its deliberations. He said it was up to the jury to determine what it means.

The megastar turned pariah refused to testify and the defense called just one witness, a police detective, before resting their case minutes later on the sixth day of what was initially billed as a two-week trial.

Philadelphia defence lawyer Alan Tauber says that's less likely in Cosby's case because his fame makes him an unlikely flight risk. A couple of hours later, before they retired for the night, they asked for a much larger batch of testimony, covering more of Cosby's account of the 2004 encounter.

Cosby, who was charged by Montgomery County in 2015, faces 10 years in prison and a $25,000 fine and would also be required to register as a sex offender if convicted.

Jackson's statement said she roomed with Constand while on a trip with the university's women's basketball team. In clear and firm terms, she said Cosby, a powerful Temple alum, mentored her and took an interest in her career like a father figure.

Cosby declined to testify in his own defense.

She claims he gave her three blue pills, which he described as "little friends", before sexually assaulting her. They said the accusers were after money.

"She sat with her back to the kitchen wall", Cosby said.

Cosby has been on trial in suburban Philadelphia since June 5. She came to the courtroom for the first time on Monday. His accuser Constand, her mother, and another accuser, Kelly Johnson, took the stand.


Count 1 alleges that Cosby didn't have consent when he penetrated Constand's genitals with his fingers. He has confessed in a secular confessional to betraying the trust of his wife, and perhaps of the women who considered him a mentor before he moved them to another spot on the sliding scale of human interaction.

In a tense cross-examination, defense attorneys pointed out that several of Constand's initial statements to police, including the date of the alleged assault, were later proved to be false. "It is not correct, and I can see only one objective for him coming here to do that, and that is to defame our client, and that is the goal of Mr. Cosby and his publicist".

Cosby later told police the pills were Benadryl, an over-the-counter cold and allergy medicine. I'm not able to say, now, that he is completely good and that his legacy is one of pudding pops, gentle mugging and pitch-perfect tributes to a disappeared city on the edge of a cultural revolution. "It was a lot of confusion putting a lot of dates together".

A conviction could send Cosby (79) to prison for the rest of his life, completing the stunning late-life downfall of one of the most beloved stars in showbusiness.

"Your friends", Mr Cosby said he told her in the 2005-06 deposition.

In the prosecution's closing argument, Steele said that Cosby's lurid statements from 2005 helped corroborate Constand's allegations.

In the civil deposition, he admitted that he had previously obtained prescriptions for Quaaludes, a powerful sedative, with the intention of giving the drugs to women with whom he wanted to have sex.

As they pored over Cosby's words, the jurors appeared to struggle with some language in one of the charges against him: "without her knowledge". "He says she doesn't say 'yes.'" Steele said, according to NBC News. Cosby has pleaded not guilty and maintains that his relationship with Constand was romantic and consensual.

As he described reaching into Constand's trousers, Cosby testified, "I go into the area that is somewhere between permission and rejection".
