Keshia Knight Pulliam will always be there for Bill Cosby

Keshia Knight Pulliam will always be there for Bill Cosby

They were chosen in Pittsburgh and bused 300 miles to suburban Philadelphia, where they are sequestered until the trial's end. A judge recently denied Cosby's motion to dismiss the case and a trial has been scheduled for June 2018. "They are competing for accuracy", MacGregor said, adding that the longer the deliberations, the more likely Cosby walks. "Once a mistrial has been declared", said Fitzpatrick, "the prosecution will have to decide whether they will retry the case before a new jury, negotiate a new plea offer or withdraw the case". "This is how juries deliberate". "Knowing Mr. Cosby is to know he's a comedian".

The criminal case against Cosby partly stems from the accuser's related civil lawsuit.

More than 60 other women have since come forward sharing similarly lurid encounters with the man once known as "America's Dad".

Jurors wanted the testimony of Detective Dave Mason read back to them Tuesday.

In late 2014, dozens of women went public with accusations that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted them over the course of his lengthy comedic career. Constand told police she was semi-conscious as he touched her breast and genitals.

Cosby's lawyers say Constand's initial report was inconsistent with her later statements.

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.

A judge ruled earlier that Jackson would not be able to testify because her statement would be considered hearsay. Constand said on the witness stand she did not know Jackson.

"He never shuts up", lawyer Brian McMonagle said of his client in closing arguments Monday.

Bill Cosby flashed a thumbs-up sign as he arrived for the second full day of marathon deliberations by the jury in his sexual assault trial.

Cosby is being charged with drugging and molesting Andrea Constand at his Pennsylvania home in 2004. He says it was consensual.

Gianna Constand, the accuser's fiercely protective mother, testified that Cosby apologized over the phone to her and her daughter and offered to pay for her schooling.

The 79-year-old entertainer did not take the stand at his trial, but prosecutors used Cosby's decade-old deposition testimony as evidence.

No one is disputing that there was a sexual encounter between the two and that Cosby gave her pills.

Some jurors closed their eyes and tilted their heads down as a court reporter reread Cosby's January 2005 interview.

William Henry Cosby Jr., as his name appears on charging documents, faces three counts of aggravated indecent assault in connection with his alleged sexual contact with Andrea Constand, the former director of women's basketball operations at Temple University, at his Cheltenham mansion in 2004.

What's your opinion on the Bill Cosby trial?

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

She testified last week that he gave her a substance that incapacitated her and then he sexually assaulted her.

"They are looking for chinks in her (Constand's) armour", MacGregor said.
