Bill Cosby Sexual Assault Trial: Jury Deliberates for Third Day

Acilia Dean | 20 Giugno, 2017, 00:50

Cosby, 79, pleaded not guilty to three charges of aggravated indecent assault. One slunk down in his seat, looking angry.

Earlier testimony by Gianna Constand, the accuser's mother, suggested that Mr. Cosby tried to buy the family's silence by offering to pay for graduate school. Constand said on the witness stand she did not know Jackson. That same day, the jury asked to hear read-backs of police testimony about Cosby's 2005 interview with police at his attorney's NY law office.

But when speaking about her career plans one night at his home, the sweater-wearing actor known as "America's Dad" gave her three blue pills that he said were herbal and would help her relax, she testified.

So, Jackson, whose statement was issued to the court on November 20, 2016, permitted Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt to read what the jury may have considered compelling testimony. The jurors ordered strombolis for dinner while they wait. He says it was consensual.

With a jury deadlocked on all three counts, Cosby could also walk out of court.

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.

That was followed by a fiery broadside from Constand's civil attorney, Dolores Troiani, who said the witness' claims were untrue.

Jurors have deliberated some 21 hours since getting the case Monday.

O'Neill seemed to give the jurors an out, reminding them that the testimony is lengthy and was drawn from 300 pages of transcripts. Each carries a maximum 10-year prison term, though the counts could be merged at sentencing if he is convicted. Trial jurors were said to have started the third day of deliberations on Wednesday. If they tell the judge they can not, Judge Steven O'Neill is likely to ask them to try harder. In the deposition, Cosby says he relaxed Constand by giving her Benadryl before fondling her, but prosecutors assert he gave her something much stronger.

The jury, sequestered for the duration of the trial and unaware of the back-and-forth outside, reviewed the testimony of the police officer who took Constand's initial report.

Closing arguments were delivered on Monday, and the case was then handed over to the 12-person jury, comprised of seven men and five women.

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

Jurors made the requests a few minutes after resuming deliberations Friday.

Pulliam accompanied Cosby to the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pennsylvania, on June 4, the first day of his two-week trial.

Cosby entered the suburban Philadelphia courthouse Wednesday morning on the arm of his spokesman.
