Jury in Bill Cosby trial wraps up Day 3 without verdict

Her mother, Gianna Constand, pulled a cloth from her pocket to wipe away tears Wednesday as she listened to the testimony.

Jurors asked for testimony about a detective's interview with Cosby in early 2005. He did not testify during the trial, but Constand did, speaking publicly about the alleged incident for the first time as she took the witness stand last week (ends09Jun17).

The court reporter had to transcribe Schaffer's testimony today, resulting in a delay of three hours between the jury's question and the testimony being read to the jury.

Jurors have deliberated for almost 30 hours as they consider allegations that the 79-year-old entertainer drugged and molested Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his gated estate near Philadelphia in 2004.

Cosby has denied any wrongdoing.

Bill Cosby has arrived for the start of Day 3 of jury deliberations in his sexual assault trial.

During the closing arguments of comedian Bill Cosby's sexual-assault trial on Monday, Cosby's leading lawyer turned to his client's wife, Camille, and said she "deserved better". They also showed jurors testimony from his deposition in which he admitted giving young women sedatives in the 1970s. Constand testified last week that Cosby gave her pills, helped her to a couch and groped her without her permission while she was passed out, unable to stop him.

Senate Panel Meets With Special Counsel Robert Mueller in Russia Probe
Gingrich and Ruddy said it would be a "mistake" for Trump to remove Mueller, although both said they see the probe as unnecessary. Justice Department policy is that a sitting president can not be indicted by a grand jury, the Post also reported Wednesday .

Cosby's lawyers maintain Constand was a willing sexual partner.

Jurors have deliberated some 21 hours since getting the case Monday.

But if Cosby is convicted, even on one count, Montgomery County prosecutors will probably petition for his US$1 million (RM4 million) bail to be overturned and that he be taken into custody immediately.

Jurors went straight to the deliberation room Wednesday and remained there, with wraps and hoagies arriving for lunch.

The studio didn't provide further details and declined comment Wednesday.

If deliberations drag on, that's usually because either the panel is divided or, in complex cases, they are reviewing voluminous amounts of evidence.

Cosby faces three felony counts of aggravated indecent assault. Cosby is accused of drugging and sexually assaulting Constand at his home outside Philadelphia in 2004.

It also announced plans to start paring its bond holdings later this year, which could cause long-term rates to rise. By contrast, "doves" favor the direction taken under Yellen, favoring relatively low rates to maximize employment.

Defense attorneys argued that the sexual contact was part of a consenting relationship between Cosby and Constand.

Prosecutors and police detectives read aloud portions of Cosby's statements to police in 2005 and in a civil deposition in 2006.

Jurors already have spent about 16 hours discussing whether the 79-year-old star drugged and molested a woman at his suburban Philadelphia home more than a decade ago.

They are set to resume deliberations at 9am on Thursday.

Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt has been a central part of the show outside the courthouse.

In late 2014, dozens of women went public with accusations that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted them over the course of his lengthy comedic career. The jury will reconvene for deliberations Wednesday.

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.
