Cosby jurors wrap up Day 3 without verdict

Cosby is charged with three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault.

Jurors passed the 20-hour mark as they considered allegations that the 79-year-old entertainer drugged and molested Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his gated estate near Philadelphia in 2004.

So far, the seven men and five women on the jury have deliberated more than 16 hours since Monday evening without reaching a verdict. Each carries a maximum 10-year prison term, though the counts could be merged at sentencing if he is convicted. "I can see only one objective for him coming here to do that, and that is to defame our client, and that is the goal of Mr. Cosby and his publicist".

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.

One of the most popular television series in history, it jettisoned a man raised by a maid and a US Navy cook into a life of fame and wealth. "Not really", he replied. "I wanted to to what I would have wanted to receive". Under questioning, Constant acknowledged that she was telling that detail for the first time, and hadn't said anything about placing a pill under her tongue to police.

Constand testified last week that the drug Cosby gave her rendered her unable to stop his advances, though she said she tried.

At trial, he refused to testify.

Special counsel Mueller investigating Trump for obstruction of justice
The President, less than five months into his term in office, is being investigated for obstruction of justice. That isn't true anymore, according to reporting by The Washington Post on Wednesday night .

Jackson said that she asked Constand if she had filed charges.

"In my head I was trying to get my hands to move or my legs to move, but I was frozen and those [mental] messages didn't get there and I was very limp, so I wasn't able to fight him anyway", she said. The defense rested June 9 after calling 12 witnesses over 5 days. Prior to those statements, the defense team rested its case after just six minutes and questioning only one witness.

"I'll be disappointed", she continued. It never happened, but the suggestion was enough to dominate the headlines just as prosecutors were closing their case with Cosby's damaging deposition testimony.

In those interviews, Cosby admitted to sexual contact with Constand and said they had previously had a romantic encounter.

The defense savaged Constand's credibility and painted their relationship as one that involved many meetings, and saw her call the star 53 times after the incident.

During an interview 12 years ago in NY at Cosby's lawyers' office, the comedian told Sargent Schaffer and two other investigators that he and Ms. Constand never experienced penetration. James Reape to the stand, June 8 where he began pouring over the controversial statements that Mr. Cosby made during a deposition in the civil case settled in 2006 between the comedian and Ms. Constand. But there is no mandatory minimum, meaning that the judge overseeing the case could also allow him to walk free.
