Growing frenzy outside court as Cosby deliberations wear on

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

But the allegations lodged by 44-year-old Canadian Andrea Constand about an encounter in January 2004 are the only criminal case brought against him.

Late Wednesday, they filed into Courtroom A in the stately Montgomery County courthouse after asking to re-listen to all of Constand's testimony about the night she says Cosby tricked her into taking pills that left her "frozen" and unable to stop him from sexually assaulting her. The question marked the sixth time the jury asked a question to the judge. They also requested further definition of the third count, which pertains to whether Cosby gave her a substance "without [her] knowledge" for the objective of "preventing resistance".

Cosby's lawyers argued that he and the woman, Andrea Constand, were lovers and that the encounter was consensual. At one point midday, the group had asked O'Neill to clarify the meaning of "without her knowledge", one of the elements of the aggravated indecent assault charge against the Cosby.

Constand was challenged by Angela Agrusa, one of Cosby's attorneys.

The Rev. Andrew F. Kline, a vicar of a historic black church in Norristown who stopped by the courthouse steps Wednesday to check out the scene, said his congregation is "absolutely" talking about the case given Cosby's place in their lives. "The testimony of the defendant may be used to assess the defendant's intent or motive and plan where the prosecution's theory is that the defendant operates according to a certain pattern", she said.

The three charges accuse Cosby of assaulting Constand without her consent, assaulting her when she was unconscious and assaulting her using drugs to substantially impair her ability to consent.


But she said the hotel room meeting was not romantic, and explained that she made those phone calls in her job responsibility at Temple. In the deposition, which became public almost two years ago, Mr. Cosby said he gave Ms. Constand three half-tablets of the cold and allergy medicine Benadryl.

"I'm going to have to just cross that bridge when I come to it".

She said Cosby gave her three pills and wine before touching her breasts, putting his fingers in her vagina and putting her hand on his erect penis after she sought his advice about moving to Canada and switching careers.

Cosby maintained that Constand was a willing sexual partner and she hid the fact that the two had a romantic relationship.

He was not charged with any crimes at the time, but he did settle a civil suit with her out of court in 2006.

The statement continued: "There was a news story of a high profile individual, who was accused of drugging women and sexually assaulting them".

Pulliam, who played Rudy Huxtable on "The Cosby Show", appeared on "TODAY" on Wednesday and filled fans in on what really went on during the high profile sexual assault trial last week.
