Keshia Knight Pulliam continues to stand by her former TV dad, Bill Cosby, as a verdict looms in his sexual assault trial. As such, legal experts have said the trial fits the "he said-she said" arguments so common to sexual offense cases. The defense started and ended its case Monday with six minutes of repeat testimony from a detective.

Constand testified last week that Cosby gave her a substance that incapacitated her and then he sexually assaulted her.

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

The jury in the Bill Cosby sexual assault trial in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, ended a second night of deliberations Tuesday without reaching a verdict. "It is not correct, and I can see only one objective for him coming here to do that, and that is to defame our client, and that is the goal of Mr. Cosby and his publicist".

When asked how she would feel about Cosby should the jury find him guilty, Pulliam said, "I'm going to have to cross that bridge when I come to it". The question appeared to address whether that would also include someone who voluntarily took pills without asking what they were, as Cosby said happened.

Another witness, Kelly Johnson, testified that she was the victim of a similar attack by the comedian in 1996. In a transcript read in court, the comedian said, "I never meant to have sexual intercourse with Andrea".

"A 30-year consecutive sentence would be a life sentence", she said.

"I just thought about it like how would I want to be treated if, God forbid, I was in that situation". "It wasn't an angry stop".

"I felt really humiliated and I was really confused", she said through tears. Constand, who is gay, maintains that the sexual conduct was not consensual. Unfortunately, he said, Cosby defense lawyer Brian McMonagle does not have that opportunity because his law offices are in Center City, Philadelphia. "Simply, you're exhausted, and I respect that", O'Neill said.

He purchased a $250 hair dryer and encouraged her to change her hairstyle, Mr. Cosby said. The entertainer did not take the stand at his trial, but prosecutors used his deposition testimony as evidence.

Cosby, 79, whose long career was based on a family-friendly comedy style, did not testify.

The verdict to be passed from the jury to the judge on the criminal case involving U.S. comedian, Bill Cosby, could depend on the interpretation of one word: knowledge. "Although I can not recall the specific year, there was an occasion I recall the television was on".

In addition, Constand initially told police that she had not been alone with Cosby prior to the alleged assault and that they had little contact after. A mass murderer is still a person, a child pornographer is still a person, and yes, in Cosby's case specifically, a serial sexual abuser is still a person. A photo of those bottles was shown on a screen in court June 8. Constand was the director of operations for the Temple women's team. "I sit there and ask her to please take a nap, please take a nap". Constand has denied Cosby's explanation, [ultimately] telling police, "We were not involved in any romantic relationship".

Following Fowler's post, Uber hired former Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate her charges. "Her eyes were...all over and she was anxious", he said.
