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


Actor and comedian Bill Cosby (R) leaves Montgomery County Courthouse with his publicist Andrew Wyatt after jury deliberations in his sexual assault trial in Norristown, Pennsylvania, U.S., June 13, 2017.

The judge praised them for being remarkably conscientious as they consider three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault that could put Cosby in prison for the rest of his life. He has pleaded not guilty in the Constand case and has repeatedly denied allegations of wrongdoing and of coercing any of his accusers. "It's easy to be there when things are good, when business is good, when money is good... but I wanted to do what I would have wanted to receive".

As the jury at Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial continued its deliberations Tuesday, the entertainer's spokesman asserted that Cosby didn't get a fair trial because a key defense witness was blocked from testifying.

Just after they began their deliberations Monday, jurors asked to revisit a section of the transcript where Cosby described pills he gave to Constand the night of the alleged assault - ones he contends were Benadryl.

A judge ruled earlier that Jackson would not be able to testify because her statement would be considered hearsay. They also requested further definition of the third count, which pertains to whether Cosby gave Constand a substance "without [her] knowledge" for the goal of "preventing resistance".

The defense's case followed a riveting week from the prosecution which saw Ms. Constand take the stand. It is suspected that Cosby may have given her a stronger pill, perhaps the Quaaludes which he had admitted to obtaining in the 70s with the intention of giving to women with whom he meant to have sex, according to the Associated Press. She had been present during the first two days of deliberations.

The panel has also been reviewing Cosby's deposition testimony.

He said he was attracted to Ms. Constand the first time he met her and the two discussed her personal life, including a makeover and how her "butt" looked.

On Wednesday afternoon, they asked to re-hear Constand's testimony about the night of the alleged assault.

"I don't hear her say anything".

She said that she will accept whatever verdict the jury delivers. They are three of about 60 women who have accused Cosby of one form of inappropriate sexual conduct or another, some dating back to 50 years ago, before some of his children were born. They have now deliberated for a total of almost 24 hours. Cosby replied: "Because they might help take some of the stress and tension away".

The case has sparked debate over celebrity, race, power and gender. Cosby says they enjoyed a mutual "petting" session.
