Cosby jury hears accuser's testimony again

Bill Cosby accuser Victoria Valentino wears a pin stating

Deliberations continued on Tuesday (13Jun17), and as Cosby awaits to hear the verdict, he is staying positive. Today begins their third day of deliberations. Cosby, 79, pleaded not guilty to three charges of aggravated indecent assault.

The actress accompanied her The Cosby Show co-star into the Montgomery County Courthouse in Pennsylvania on 5 June (17) for the first day of his criminal trial, and told reporters she was there to hear "the truth" and lend her support to the troubled funnyman because "it's what you do" for friends. 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".

McMonagle clearly pointed out to the jury that this wasn't a case about money, but a man's freedom, and he further used a screen to show the jury how Andrea's statement changed over the course of the three interviews she gave to the police a year after she claimed Mr. Cosby assaulted her at his home near Philadelphia [VIDEO].

Last week, Pulliam gave a similar statement to ET, again making it clear that she doesn't "condone or support sexual assault".

After taking the pills, Constand said, she had trouble talking and difficulty moving and was suffering double vision, before briefly losing consciousness. And here is Cosby's defense: That drugging women used to be "fashionable".

The first prosecutor to review the case in 2005 passed on it.

Bill Cosby exits the courtroom with his publicist Andrew Wyatt on the third day of jury deliberations in his sexual assault trial at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pennsylvania, U.S. June 14, 2017. They called a second woman, Kelly Johnson, who testified that he sexually assaulted her in 1996 and showed jurors testimony from his deposition in which he admitted giving young women sedatives in the 1970s.

"Cosby's team is trying to plant seeds of doubt about this trial with his fans so they don't abandon him".

Andrea, who is now 44 years of age, gave her testimony last week saying that she was drugged by Bill and, then, penetrated by him using his fingers against her will. She explained her support by saying it comes down to how she would feel if she was facing a hard time. "It wasn't hostile. She didn't push me away, she said stop and I stopped". She said she got up to leave and found Cosby in the kitchen. Cosby says they enjoyed a mutual "petting" session.

She emulated the great Brazilian Gustavo Kuerten by claiming her first title of any kind on the hallowed Parisian clay courts. "But I'm optimistic that if we decide to make a real play for her, that she'll be here".

When they returned to the courtroom, most had stern, but tired, expressions on their faces from the hours and hours of deliberations. 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.
