Cosby set for 5th day of sexual assault trial

In the deposition Cosby gave as part of a civil suit Constand filed against him in 2005, the entertainer said Constand's mother had called him to discuss an evening he'd spent with her daughter.

The comic told cops he gave Andrea one and a half tablets of Benadryl to help her "relax". He says the sexual encounter with Andrea Constand was consensual.

Testifying under oath in 2005, Cosby said he obtained several prescriptions for quaaludes in the 1970s and offered the now-banned sedatives to others, "the same as a person would say, 'Have a drink, ' " according to the deposition read to the jury. "The mother is coming at me for being a dirty old man".

This story has been corrected to show that 12 prosecution witnesses, not 13, took the stand.

Constand testified this week she rejected Cosby's advances and would have fought him off again had the pills not left her paralyzed and semi-conscious.

Dozens of women have made similar allegations against the once-beloved celebrity, but Constand's were the only ones recent enough to be prosecuted. She was going through a tough time, having just lost her 6-year-old son, when Cosby invited them out for a seemingly fun night on the town.

The former TV icon is facing more than 10-years behind bars if found guilty by a jury for three felony charges of second-degree aggravated indecent assault against the then Temple University employee. Cosby served as a trustee at Temple, where Constand was employed as the director of operations for the women's basketball team. The defense has questioned Constand's continued contact with Cosby after the alleged assault and conflicting reports of when the incident occurred. A lawyer on the Bill Cosby defense team appeared to be outraged in the Philadelphia courtroom after hearing the expert testimony of Dr. Veronique Valliere, and immediately demanded that the judge declare a mistrial because of it.

"This is your argument and I understand your argument", O'Neill said to McMonagle.

The attorney for a Minnesota police officer charged with manslaughter in the fatal shooting of a black motorist during a traffic stop says his client will testify Friday.

Portions of the deposition became public almost two years ago and played a major role in prosecutors' decision to charge him.

Mugging in front of the cameras this week after a fan said it was her birthday, he asked, "How old?"

"Nothing's ever off the table", he said during a break in testimony.

Cosby's own words continue to be the prosecution's most damning evidence to date, considering the skepticism often projected onto alleged victims' testimonies.

"If it's a well-known person, the victim takes on a lot of responsibility for that person's reputation".

"To hear her talk about something I never heard her talk about, to see her cry, was really hard for me".

Valliere said it's not unusual for victims to reach out to their assailant after the alleged attack because they may be confused and are looking to get a "sense of clarity". "It's not that common where a victim feels that righteously angry to want "justice" because it's much more complicated with consequences involved."However, Valliere's bias in the case was questioned by Cosby attorney Brian McMonagle, who produced a Facebook post from Valliere's clinic commenting on a news article about the case."Victory", the post read".
