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

The Latest: Bill Cosby jury begins Day 3 of deliberations - WREX.com – Rockford's News Leader

Judge Stephen O'Neill says a court reporter is racing to transcribe that portion of last week's testimony.

Mr. Cosby told police that he never told Ms. Constand or her family what the pills really were, despite the fact they requested the name of the medication later on.

A jury considering sexual assault charges against Bill Cosby has asked for the testimony of the police officer who took accuser Andrea Constand's initial report. He says their encounter was consensual.

Pulliam also provided a glimpse into Cosby's state of mind as the jury enters their third day of deliberations.

During an appearance on the Today Show Wednesday morning, the former Cosby kid opened up about why she has made a decision to be there for her TV dad in the wake of his sexual assault trial. Cosby did not testify and the defense only called a single witness.

A four-hour deliberation followed after Monday's hearings, but observers have not been able to glean much from the faces of the jurors as to determine what their leanings could be.

Actress Keshia Knight Pulliam has refused to turn her back on Bill Cosby, the man who made her a household name and is, incidentally, now awaiting the verdict of his near career-damaging rape trial.

On Wednesday morning, the panel resumed talks.

Constand testified over two days last week for the prosecution. Each carries a maximum 10-year prison term, though the counts could be merged at sentencing if he is convicted. Jurors want to hear more excerpts from a deposition Cosby gave as part of Constand's civil suit against him.

Bill Cosby leaves the Montgomery County Courthouse during his sexual assault trial, Tuesday, June 13, 2017, in Norristown, Pa.

The jury is deliberating three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault. "This is how juries deliberate". Prosecutors claim that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted Andrea Constand (director of operations for the women's basketball team at Temple University) at his home near Philadelphia in January 2004. He says the encounter was consensual.

While walking out of the courthouse on Tuesday night, Cosby did the voice and yelled out, "Hey, Hey, Hey!", which was Fat Albert's catchphrase on the show.

The frenzy outside the courthouse is growing larger and wilder with each day of jury deliberations in Bill Cosby's sexual assault case. However, she testified that she had been alone in a hotel room with Cosby beforehand, and that there were 72 calls between the two afterward. Victim advocates grow in number on the courthouse steps, and the Cosby camp's spin grows louder.

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.
