Amid criminal case, Cosby fighting lawsuits by 10 women

Amid criminal case, Cosby fighting lawsuits by 10 women

For all the ways the judge in Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial has streamlined the case inside the courtroom, the frenzy outside grows larger and wilder each day of jury deliberations.

The alleged assault, which involved Cosby allegedly touching Constand's breast and genitals while she was "frozen" is said to have occurred in his suburban Philadelphia estate in 2004.

As the deliberations continued on Wednesday, the crowd waiting outside the Montgomery County courthouse appeared to have grown, including the occasional protester and one local resident who set up a swiveling armchair on the sidewalk. They'll resume talks Wednesday morning. "On each occasion, Andrea and I shared a hotel room", Jackson said, in the statement. They also requested further definition of the third count, which pertains to whether Cosby gave Constand a substance "without [her] knowledge" for the objective of "preventing resistance".

Six-and-a-half hours later, though, Cosby's defense team was all smiles as the jury asked to rehear the defense's best evidence: a transcript of a Canadian police detective describing an interview in which Constand made multiple factual statements that she later changed.

Constand testified last week that Cosby gave her pills that left her unable to resist his assault.

She said about the sexual assault allegations, "It's nothing that I take lightly or that I condone in any way shape or form but he's still a person".

Mastermind behind Tehran attacks killed
Experts say that the attacks may test the stability of the tyrannical Islamic regime that has ruled Iran for the past 38 years. In a speech at the ceremony, Larijani denounced United States sanctions against Iran over its ballistic missile programme.

But Cosby said the pills were Benadryl, an over-the-counter cold and allergy medicine.

The counts against Cosby of aggravated indecent assault applied in the commonwealth's case address the alleged lack of consent, delivery of an intoxicating substance and Constand's unconscious state.

Cosby is accused of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, 44, at his Cheltenham home in 2004.

Constand testified last week that she did not recall knowing the woman.

Prosecutor, Kevin Steele, has asked the jury to indict Cosby, weaving in all of the comedian's previous admissions about drugging and sexual preferences, to allude that he has already confessed to the charge of assault.

Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt, who guides the vision-impaired Cosby throughout his day, has drawn throngs of cameras with his updates on Cosby's mood — "very confident", is a common refrain — and assertions that the 79-year-old comedian isn't getting a fair shake.

However, Kane slammed in at the far post deep into stoppage time to break the hearts of the Tartan Army. I was trying to get a good contact on it and side-footed into the net", he told ITV .

Earlier testimony by Gianna Constand, the accuser's mother, suggested that Mr. Cosby tried to buy the family's silence by offering to pay for graduate school.

The defense's case followed a riveting week from the prosecution which saw Ms. Constand take the stand.

The AP does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand has done. They say he sexually abused them decades ago and then defamed them after they went public by having his agents deny the claims and brand them liars. One other accuser, Kelly Johnson, testified that she was drugged and assaulted in 1996 as prosecutors sought to establish that Cosby had a pattern of assault.

But when speaking about her career plans one night at his home, the sweater-wearing actor known as "America's Dad" gave her three blue pills that he said were herbal and would help her relax, she testified.

Constand chose to return to court for closing arguments Monday after giving more than seven hours of testimony.
