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

Bill Cosby arrives at the Montgomery County Courthouse during his sexual assault trial Wednesday

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

After escorting Bill Cosby to the first day of his criminal trial in Norristown, Pennsylvania, last week, Keshia Knight Pulliam has been keeping in touch with her former onscreen father, and offered an update as to his state of mind while he awaits a jury to decide whether he's guilty of sexual assault.

Jurors quit for the night around 9 p.m. Tuesday. Wednesday morning, she told "Today", "At the end of the day, I truly believe you're innocent until proven guilty, and that's just not the man that I ever experienced".

The statement continued: "There was a news story of a high profile individual, who was accused of drugging women and sexually assaulting them".

The jury asked to review more than a dozen excerpts from a deposition the TV star gave as part of a lawsuit filed against him by the accuser.

The jury, sequestered for the duration of the trial and unaware of the back-and-forth outside, was keenly focused on what Cosby said about the pills he gave to Constand before their encounter. He says the encounter was consensual.

Jurors have deliberated for more than 21 hours since getting the case Monday. They called a second woman, Kelly Johnson, to testify he sexually assaulted her in 1996 and showed jurors his deposition testimony in which he admitted giving young women sedatives in the 1970s.

Cosby is charged with drugging and assaulting Constand at his Pennsylvania home in 2004. They pointed to Constand's initial statement to police in 2005 that she had never been alone with him beforehand and cut off all contact afterward, both untrue.

According to a senator, some 50 shots rang out in the exchange of fire between the gunman and the lawmakers' security detail. Brooks also said the shooter shot two officers working protective detail for the Congress members at the event.

He said he was attracted to Ms. Constand the first time he met her and the two discussed her personal life, including a makeover and how her "butt" looked.

Jackson stood by her account, telling The Associated Press in a phone interview that Cosby's lawyers are "going to say whatever they need to say".

Incidentally, Constand's version of what Cosby supposedly did to her while on prescription Quaaludes in 2004, as documents from a 2005 deposition between Andrea and the actor revealed, as CNN shared, mirrored that of almost 60 other women's experiences with the entertainer between 1965 and 2008, according to Rolling Stone.

Bill Cosby's representative, Andrew Wyatt, released a statement from a Temple University official that alleges Cosby's accuser, Andrea Constand, came forward with sexual assault and drugging allegations so she could sue, make money and start a business.

Judge O'Neill denied Cosby's lawyers a chance to call Jackson as a witness, saying that her testimony was hearsay.

"I was really nervous and wasn't able to recall every particular moment that I had seen Mr. Cosby in order of dates", she explained. Constand's attorney, Dolores Troiani, stated that she didn't even know the woman.

The 79-year-old Cosby faces three felony counts of aggravated indecent assault stemming from the encounter at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004.
