>> The defense resting its case in Bill Cosby's high profile sexual assault trial Monday. The entertainer accompanied by his wife, Camille Cosby, for the very first time appearing in a Pennsylvania courthouse but not taking the stand. In closing arguments Cosby's lead attorney walked the jury through several inconsistencies in accuser Andrea Constand's story.
He noted that she first told police that she cut off contact with Cosby after an alleged assault in 2005. But actually called him more than 50 times over two months after that. Constand testified last week that she made the calls because of her job at Temple University, where Cosby was a trustee and a famous alumnus.
Cosby's lawyers also argued that Constand was romantically involved with Cosby before deciding to manufacture the story of an assault. Pointing to other private encounters she had with the actor and comedian, including a firelight dinner at his home. Constand is among the dozens of women to come forward with sexual assault accusations against the 79 year old comedian going back decades.
Her case was reopened in 2015 when a federal court unsealed Cosby's sworn statements from her civil suit. Where he acknowledged getting Quaaludes for young women he wanted to sleep with. A key witness for prosecutors, Constand told jurors last week she felt frozen after taking pills Cosby gave her that left her unable to consent to his sexual advances.
