Prosecution rests in Cosby trial

Jurors heard from the comedian even though he didn't take the stand. Prosecutors introduced his lurid testimony from a decade ago about how he gave pills to Andrea Constand and then fondled her. In the document, Cosby said he feared he was being recorded and didn't want to mail the name of the drug on a piece of paper or send the pills in the mail to Canada, where Andrea lived.

Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial entered its fifth day on Friday, hearing from two crucial witnesses for the prosecution. According to the deposition, Cosby engaged in "petting" with Constand "at least" four times at his home - each time initiated by him - and that she only rebuffed him once. In that civil case, Bill Cosby paid an undisclosed amount to Andrea Constand in exchange for her silence. "I apologized to this woman", he told police in the deposition.

"I'm first thinking the mother is coming at me for being a dirty old man, which is bad", he said in the deposition regarding his conversation with the Constands.

Cosby is on trial for allegedly drugging and molesting a woman at his home near Philadelphia in 2004. It presented 12 witnesses, including Constand, her mother and Kelly Johnson, a second Cosby accuser.The Reading Eagle typically does not identify alleged victims of sexual assault, but Constand and Johnson have given media outlets permission to use their names. Although almost 60 women have levied allegations of sexual assault against him - all of which Cosby and his legal team have vehemently denied - it was the first time he faced a criminal charge. Cosby could spend the rest of his life in prison if convicted.

He testified previous year that he had talked with Cosby's lawyer before making his decision and that it was meant to let Cosby speak freely at a potential civil deposition - the same deposition that prosecutors are now relying on at his trial.

Brad Wenstrup, a podiatrist who served as a combat surgeon in Iraq, used scissors to cut Scalise's trousers to get to his wound. Senator Bernie Sanders condemned the shooting and said the suspect "apparently volunteered" on his presidential campaign.

The depositions centers around an incident in the 1970s in Las Vegas, where former model Theresa Serignese alleged Cosby gave her pills before having sex with her.

When McMonagle cross-examined Valliere after the lunch break, he accused her of bias and pulled up a post from her business' Facebook from February 2016 that included a story about the Cosby case with a comment from her.

Jurors heard excerpts on Friday from Cosby's decade-old testimony in a related civil suit about how he gave quaaludes to women he wanted to have sex with. The defense starts its case Monday.

The criminal case was reopened when Cosby's deposition became public.

Montgomery County Det. James Reape read aloud from the deposition Cosby provided to authorities in 2005 in court on Friday. Constand refused the offer and reported Cosby to police, suing him after prosecutors failed to file charges.

ON THE STAND: Psychologist Veronique Valliere testified that victims of celebrities often are afraid to come forward because of the possible backlash.

O'Neill ruled the testimony permissible and rejected the request.

Cosby gave a small group of supporters outside the Montgomery County Courthouse a thumb's up as he got into an SUV to be whisked away for the weekend.

In a barrage that all but destroyed Cosby's good-guy reputation, some 60 women have come forward to say he sexually violated them, but the statute of limitations for prosecution had run out in almost every case.
