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

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

Constand denied there was any romance between them and told jurors she had rebuffed his advances before the assault. He says their encounter was consensual.

The day before the jury learned from a police interview that Mr. Cosby believed he had been in a "romantic relationship" with Ms. Constand.

Keshia Knight Pulliam continues to support her Bill Cosby during his sexual assault trial, saying the man portrayed by the prosecution is not the one she knows. The defense also poked holes in the account of Kelly Johnson, who took the stand last week on Constand's behalf, citing discrepancies in her testimony that she was drugged and sexually assaulted by Cosby in 1996. Only Constand's claims are recent enough to have led to criminal charges.

Jurors appeared exhausted and spent when they chose to call it quits late Tuesday after about 16 hours of deliberations.

This story has been corrected to show that jurors reviewed only a portion of Andrea Constand's testimony, not the entire transcript.

Having been in contact with Cosby before the trial and after she showed up to support him, Pulliam shared some insight into his mindset.

He faces a lengthy jail stint if convicted of the counts in the Constand case, which was reopened in 2015 after his previously sealed testimony from the civil proceedings was made public.

Cosby is accused of drugging and violating a woman at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004.

As Cosby entered the courthouse in Norristown, Pennsylvania, an aide to the 79-year-old entertainer carried a pillow in preparation for what could be another long day.

Cosby is charged with three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault. The deliberations are scheduled to resume Wednesday, June 14. The comedian said in depositions that he gave her the common allergy drug Benadryl and insisted the encounter was consensual. The jury is set to reconvene after deliberating for four hours Monday night.

After the jury adjourned late Tuesday, Cosby shouted the "Fat Albert" catchphrase, "Hey, hey, hey" and gave a thumbs-up as he got in his SUV.

The jury that will decide the fate of Bill Cosby began deliberations for a third day on Wednesday, with no indication of whether they are close to reaching a verdict or heading toward a deadlock. They have worked for over six hours Wednesday.

"This court has not given (Cosby) a fair and impartial trial", declared Andrew Wyatt, who has been at Cosby's side for much of the trial.
