Cosby jury hunkers down for 3rd day in sex assault case

NORRISTOWN, Penn. -At presstime, the jury in the sexual assault trial of entertainer Bill Cosby was expected to soon began deliberations .
A brief overview: The comedian and CosbyShow star was charged with three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault, stemming from a 2004 encounter with the accuser, Andrea Constand, 44, who alleges Cosby drugged her at his Philadelphia home and engaged in sexual acts without her consent.
The first prosecutor to review the case in 2005 passed on it. District Attorney Kevin Steele reversed course a decade later, after more women accused Cosby of sexual misconduct and the public release of his startling deposition in which he spoke about a string of liaisons with young women over the course of 50 years.
Initially expected to last two weeks, closing arguments were reached in less than a day on June 12 after Cosby's lawyers failed to offer up any witnesses to speak in the actor's defense (as previously stated, Cosby himself also chose not to testify).
Jurors have deliberated some 21 hours since getting the case Monday.
Day 8 of the Cosby trial was another day of waiting for lawyers, journalists, spectators and courthouse officials as the question on everyone's mind lingered: What is taking so long? "And you deserved better".
The transcripts also revisited the alleged assault in graphic detail, how Constand described waking up to Cosby's hands touching her body, specifically how he slipped his finger in and out of her vagina. "Why are we trying to make it something it's not?"
She said that she will accept whatever verdict the jury delivers. If found guilty, he could face up to 10 years in prison for each charge. She regained consciousness as Mr. Cosby was sexually assaulting her, she said.
Constand testified last week that she did not recall knowing the woman. The jury asked about the phrasing Tuesday morning, but Judge Steven O'Neill said he could not define it for them. Hotel rooms are sold out for miles. He made some powerful statements that people either said, 'Yeah, Amen, ' or 'That's not the way we are'. The comedian said in depositions that he gave her the common allergy drug Benadryl and insisted the encounter was consensual. "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". I pray for her.
She said about the sexual assault allegations, "It's nothing that I take lightly or that I condone in any way shape or form but he's still a person".
Incidentally, Constand's version of what Cosby supposedly did to her while on prescription Quaaludes in 2004, as documents from a 2005 deposition between Andrea and the actor revealed, as CNN shared, mirrored that of almost 60 other women's experiences with the entertainer between 1965 and 2008, according toRolling Stone.
