Jury deliberations at Bill Cosby's sex assault trial enter third day

Cosby faces up to 10 years in prison on each of the three counts.

Prosecutors say the famed comedian drugged and sexually assaulted Andrea Constand, the director of operations for Temple University's women's basketball team, at his home near Philadelphia in January 2004.

Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele and defense attorney Brian McMonagle made their closing arguments on Monday and the jury began their deliberations.

"Yes, he has been unfaithful but if she is willing to forgive him, that's between him and his wife".

But they didn't come up with a verdict, leaving them exhausted and spent after a long day in the jury room.

After taking the pills, Constand said, she had trouble talking and difficulty moving and was suffering double vision, before briefly losing consciousness. Numerous other women's cases against Cosby can no longer be heard as the statute of limitations for prosecution has run out, Constand's case being the only one leading to a criminal charge. Cosby is accused of drugging and sexually assaulting Constand at his home outside Philadelphia in 2004. "It is exhausting work and the day has to come to an end", Judge Steven O'Neill told the sequestered jurors when they asked to return to their hotel at 9:20 p.m., after a 12-hour day. She would not say whether a guilty verdict will change her mind of Cosby.

She said Cosby gave her three pills and wine before touching her breasts, putting his fingers in her vagina and putting her hand on his erect penis after she sought his advice about moving to Canada and switching careers.

Cosby, 79, famous for the Cosby Show which aired from 1984 to 1992 for eight seasons, has been embroiled in charges of sexual predation and improper conduct since 2014.

"She sat with her back to the kitchen wall", Cosby said. His lawyer has said they were lovers sharing a consensual sexual encounter.

While the elder Constand testified that Cosby admitted that he was a "sick man" and was trying to find a way around the matter, Mr. Cosby said he feared extortion by the family.

In addition, Constand initially told police that she had not been alone with Cosby prior to the alleged assault and that they had little contact after.

Pulliam went on to proclaim in her Today interview that should Cosby be found guilty of rape, she'll reassess her feelings about her former television father after the trial and not a moment before, as much as the public appears to have already done.

The jury had previously reviewed Cosby's version of events, contained in a deposition he gave in 2005 and 2006 as part of Constand's lawsuit against him and introduced by prosecutors at the criminal trial. Cosby says he gave Constand Benadryl to help her relax, then fondled her. Prosecutors believe he gave her something stronger.

As for Cosby's state of mind as the jury deliberates the verdict, Keshia revealed, "My interactions with him, he's been in good spirits".

The panel has also been reviewing Cosby's deposition testimony.

Deliberations have worn on for about 16 hours since the jury got the case on Monday night.

The AP does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand has done.

Constand testified that the pills left her disoriented and unable to resist.
