Growing frenzy outside court as Cosby deliberations wear on

Bill Cosby accuser Victoria Valentino wears a pin stating

The defense argues that Cosby and Constand were lovers sharing a consensual sexual encounter.

That version of Cosby, as Keshia alluded to on Today, reportedly stands accused of drugging Andrea Constand in 2004, and molesting the then-Temple University student, once the alleged substance overtook Constand.

In one of the biggest United States celebrity trials in years, a guilty verdict could see the judge sentence Cosby up to 10 years in prison and a $25,000 fine on each count.

The Jury on Cosby's case is composed of seven men and five women, all from the Pittsburgh area of Philadelphia in the USA state of Ohio.

Jurors asked about the phrasing Tuesday morning during their sixth hour of deliberations, but Judge Steven O'Neill said he couldn't define it for them. They are still ongoing at this time.

Prosecutors called 12 witnesses over a week of testimony, but presented nearly no forensic evidence. "And I don't feel her say anything", Cosby had testified about an early alleged liaison with Constand, in an excerpt read to jurors Tuesday.

Jury deliberations have entered a third day in the Bill Cosby sexual assault trial.

But if convicted, the TV host and comedian might face up to 10 years in prison.

As they pored over Cosby's words, the jurors appeared to struggle with some language in one of the charges against him, "without her knowledge".

Prosecutors have tried to portray Cosby as a serial predator, calling a second woman, Kelly Johnson, to testify that he sexually assaulted her in 1996 and showing jurors his deposition testimony in which he admitted giving young women sedatives in the 1970s.

A jury considering sexual assault charges against Bill Cosby has asked for the testimony of the police officer who took accuser Andrea Constand's initial report. Cosby testified under oath more than a decade ago as part of Constand's civil suit against him.

Cosby is charged with drugging and molesting Constand in 2004.

As he described reaching into Constand's trousers, Cosby testified, "I go into the area that is somewhere between permission and rejection". I pray for her. Cosby says they enjoyed a mutual "petting" session. They asked four during the first two days of deliberations.

Cosby later told police the pills were Benadryl, an over-the-counter cold and allergy medicine.

"Your friends", Cosby said he told her.

The Rev. Andrew F. Kline, a vicar of a historic black church in Norristown who stopped by the courthouse steps Wednesday to check out the scene, said his congregation is "absolutely" talking about the case given Cosby's place in their lives. His admissions in that deposition led Montgomery County prosecutors to file charges against him.

Bill Cosby and former "Cosby kid" Keshia Knight Pulliam were all smiles at the start of the actor's rape trial on June 5 in Pennsylvania. "Knowing Mr. Cosby is to know he's a comedian, there's always that sense of laughter and I was grateful to see his spirit hadn't been broken as a result of this process because it's arduous", she added, "There's nothing happy, there's nothing good about it for either side".
