Cosby jury told to rely on 'recollection' after asking 12th question

Cosby jury told to rely on 'recollection' after asking 12th question

Shown is the Montgomery County Courthouse during Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial at the in Norristown, Pa., Thursday. The judge had instructed the jury to keep deliberating after it reported Thursday it was deadlocked on the charges against the comedian. Instead, the judge told the sequestered jurors to keep deliberating.

The jury went back to the deliberating room after having the quaaludes testimony read back to them and listening again to the definition of reasonable doubt, the threshold that prosecutors must cross to win a conviction.

Jurors asked to rehear the testimony of Gianna Constand, the mother of Cosby accuser Andrea Constand, specifically regarding the initial 2 ½ hour phone conversation she had with Cosby after Andrea told her that Cosby allegedly sexually assaulted her after plying her with pills and incapacitating her.

Upon hearing the jurors' requests lead defense lawyer Brian J. McMonagle asked the judge to declare a mistrial.

"I wanted her to be comfortable enough to relax, I wanted her to be comfortable so she could sleep after our necking session", Cosby said of his intentions in giving Constand the alleged Benadryl.

Bill Cosby is thanking his fans and supporters as a jury considers sexual assault charges that could send him to prison for the rest of his life.

The judge reminded the jury that it's their duty to try to reach a decision, even on some of the charges.

Although the trial concerns only Constand's allegations, 60 women have publicly accused the legendary entertainer of being a serial sexual predator in remarkably similar accusations that span four decades.

The portion of Constand's testimony where she talks about telephone calls she made to Cosby after she says he drugged and violated her.

More than a dozen excerpts from Cosby's deposition, including the "friends" comment and his acknowledgment that he'd gone "somewhere between permission and rejection" during a previous encounter with Constand.

With these two high profile cases seemingly teetering on the brink of hung juries this week, you might think it happens quite often.

"It sounds perverted. I sound like a perverted person", Cosby told her.

Question: Can we hear Cosby's deposition about Quaaludes?

District Attorney Kevin Steele, who ran for office promising to pursue Cosby on the long-abandoned case, would then have several months to decide whether to retry Cosby.

Constand, who was an employee at Temple University, said the majority of those calls to Cosby, a powerful Temple trustee, were made as part of her job responsibilities.

They zeroed in on Cosby's admission he obtained seven prescriptions for Quaaludes in the 1970s so he could give the now banned sedative to women he hoped to seduce. He also said he did not have any in his possession as of November 2002.

His wife, Camille, walked into court with him on Monday, her first appearance at the trial.

She testified that she never received a note from Cosby. "It was a lot of confusion putting a lot of dates together".

"The information that I had he was going to hang them last night". The judge told them they had to rely on their collective memory.
