Cosby thanks supporters on Twitter as trial deliberations continue

They also asked for clarity around the language of count three, which pertains to whether Cosby administered "drugs, intoxicants or other means for the objective of preventing resistance" without Constand's knowledge, as well as clarification about Constand's testimony about the alleged attack and read-backs of police testimony about Cosby's 2005 interview with police. The judge told them they had to rely on their collective memory.

Cunningham says when he was about to try his first case as a prosecutor, a senior attorney in the office advised him to not ask too many questions during jury selection and not challenge too many prospective jurors, telling him "If you can't prove your case to a cross-section of our community, you have no business trying to put the defendant in jail".

If they are unable to reach a unanimous verdict on any of the three counts, the judge could declare a mistrial. Constand claims she was ambushed with something that left her feeling "frozen" on Cosby's couch.

Jurors listened again to Cosby's deposition testimony about giving quaaludes to women before sex in the 1970s. The jury has also asked to revisit portions of Cosby's past statements to investigators, everything from his admitted use of quaaludes to conversations he had with Constand's mother. Addressing Cosby, the judge said the celebrity needed to be sure he understood the meaning and consequences of a mistrial.

According to Radar's source inside the courtroom - where tensions were higher than ever - O'Neill addressed Cosby directly during his tirade Friday morning, explaining due process and insisting that the jury has the right to deliberate as long as they so chose.

Cosby is charged with drugging and molesting a woman at his home in 2004. He maintains that their sexual encounter was consensual. But he says he no longer had them when he met accuser Andrea Constand in 2002 at Temple University. In the call, Gianna Constand said Cosby apologized and described himself as a "sick man".

Prosecutors say his prior use of Quaaludes shows that Cosby had knowledge of what he was doing when he gave her the pills. "I'm sorry it's causing everyone frustration, but the law requires that I allow a deliberating jury to continue to deliberate".

Former Temple employee Andrea Constand walks through the Montgomery County Courthouse before continuing her testimony about her alleged sexual assault by Bill Cosby. As deliberations entered their 41st hour, Cosby lawyer Brian McMonagle has made numerous such requests.


The panel also asked to rehear parts of the 79-year-old comedian's deposition testimony. Because the latest question concerned testimony that had been reread to the jury less than an hour earlier, the judge denied the request and promptly sent the jurors back into deliberations. "They want the entire testimony again".

The panel has been working for more than 40 hours since getting the case on Monday.

"They're conflicted about the inconsistencies in Ms. Constand's testimony", spokesman Andrew Wyatt said.

Philadelphia defense lawyer Alan Tauber, who isn't involved in the case, says that's less likely for Cosby because his fame makes him an unlikely flight risk.

Drugging and sexually violating a woman at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. He maintains that their sexual encounter was consensual.

"It's not uncommon for a jury to be deadlocked at first but then to reach a verdict after some prodding from the judge", says Larry Cunningham, vice dean and professor of legal writing at St. John's Law School in NY, and a former prosecutor.

Jurors will return for a fifth day of work Friday. The judge directed them to keep talking and as Thursday evening fell, the panel of seven men and five women were still at it.

Outside the courthouse in Norristown, Cosby supporters gathered, chanting "free Bill Cosby", while several women who have accused the celebrity of sexual assault hoped for a verdict favoring the prosecution.
