Bill Cosy's sexual assault lawyers are ready to start discussing after a marathon with concluding arguments that portrayed comedians both as computing and victims of a multimillion dollar framework. (April 25)
Shortly after 11.00 ET the jury received the case and was sent to the deliberation room. This came after more than one hour of the jury's instructions and followed a marathon tuesday to end arguments that portrayed comedians both as a computing computer like which was finally brought to justice and the victim of a multimillion dollar is framed by a "pathological liar".
Judge Steven The Neills jury's instructions indicate which jury members may and may not take into consideration in deliberations. He declared each of the three acquired indecent abuse charges and told them that they must consider each and every charge separately and individually.
Then the seven men and five women began to weigh fees in the first major celebrity test of the Me Too era. The panel, which has been sequestered in a suburban hotel in Philadelphia for two weeks, resisted the requests to start discussing immediately after Tuesday's ending argument, which ran upwards in five hours and cited exhaustion.
Cosby gave a quick fist pump and sashayed against wishing to chanting, "We love Bill!" when he arrived at the town hall on a rainy Wednesday morning.
The prosecution and the defense gave lawyers a lot to think about after a two-week trial of Cosby, 80-year-old comedian once honored as "American dad" against Andrea Constand, a former sports athlete of the temple who testified that he hit her with three pills he called "your friends" and battered her at his suburban Philadelphia mansion in January 2004.  "The time for the defendant to escape justice is over. It is finally time for the defendant to eat on the banquet with his own consequences, prosecutors say Stewart Ryan under the ending argument and asked jury members to stand with Constand, see Cosby in the eye and "tell the truth about what he did."  Cosby's lawyers claimed that the allegations were based on "dumb, dumb and ridiculous evidence."
Under The prosecutor had prosecuted five other women testifying that Cosby drew and violated them in episodes from the 1980s. An prosecutor asked him through tears: "Remember, are not you, Mr. Cosby?" Cosby's lawyers, who contradict the meeting, agreed, called a former friend to Constand to testify that Constand talked about designing a high-profile person to sue and extract a large settlement.
None of that was allowed in Cosby's streamlined first attempt, which ended in a hanging jury last year after deliberations in a total of five days. Nor did lawyers, at the first attempt, tell us how much Cosbys 2006's bourgeois deal with Constand: almost $ 3.4 million, which defense attorney Tom Mesereau said on Tuesday, "one of the biggest freeways ever".
"I have never seen or heard of a review that was as different as this was from the first trial," said Attorney General Attorney Dennis McAndrews, who has been in court after trial and is not attached to any page . "The prosecution now had several victims and the Armed Forces had money, which was powerful weapons on both sides."
However, the renewed jury faces the same choice as the first jury: If there is no physical evidence of the alleged crime, do they believe "in addition to a reasonable doubt" the stories that Constand and the other women's prosecutors told, all of whom were subjected to aggressive review?
Or did the lawyers' argument for Cosby raise reasonable doubt with a single lawyer? Just as in the first attempt, Cosby did not take a stand and chose not to, like the right of someone accused in a criminal case in America.
Cosby faces three bills of aggravated indecent attacks, each carrying up to 10 years in prison. His 54-year-old Camille looked out of the gallery when his lawyers asked the judge to clear him the first time she had attended the trial. She also joined the defense's final argument at her first trial.
Camille Cosby, 74, had stayed because the prosecutor built her case that her husband maintained a sordid double life, plying women with drugs and predicted them sexually. Before the jury came in, she put the arm around Cosby, which is legally blind. They smiled and chatted, and he gave her a jaw on the cheek. When it was the prosecutor's appeal to argue, she left the courtroom and Constand walked in.
"You are dealing with a pathologist liar, jurors," said Mesereau, who won a freeze in Michael Jackson's 2005-offensive case. "You are."
Prosecutor Christian Feden called Cosby the true artist – violated the label from Cosby's lawyers who had applied it to Constand throughout the trial.
"Yes, you heard of a con," Feden said, her voice rising as she moved toward Cosby pointing at him. "The perpetrator of this woman is this man sitting here."
She warned that the man believed her role as brilliant, tired of Dr Cliff Huxtable at Cosby Show is "nothing like the picture he was playing on TV."
The defense highlighted more than one dozens of inconsistencies in what Constand has said over the years and carefully reviewed the phone and travel records and said they prove that the alleged attack could not have happened when she said it did. They claimed that he owed the expiry of the 12-year statute of limitation to prosecute him.
