Constand's complaint is the only one that has come to trial.

The case has been brought against Cosby by Andrea Constand, who claimed that in 2004, Cosby drugged and then sexually assaulted her.

Right now, the jury is wrestling with three different charges against the entertainer. Bill Cosby exits the courtroom during his sexual assault trial at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pa., Wednesday, June 14, 2017.

The trial began on June 5, and the jury began deliberating Monday evening.

"We need to know what happened", a resolute May said.

Constand is not the only woman who says Cosby raped or sexually assaulted her. Dozens of women have come forward over the past several years, with stories that echo one another. "It just reminded me of 9/11", said Muna Ali, 45. He added, "If after further deliberations you are still deadlocked on some or all of the charges, you should report that to me". The district attorney's office declined to comment.

Cosby's lawyers maintain Constand was a willing sexual partner.

In July 2015, a judge unsealed Cosby's deposition in that 2006 civil lawsuit.

Mr Cosby's spokesman Andrew Wyatt told journalists on the courtroom steps in Norristown, Pennsylvania, that Mr Cosby was "innocent until proven guilty".

Commonwealth exhibits 27 through 43 comprise a wider portion of Cosby's deposition from more than a decade ago.

She also asked Cosby's representatives for free tickets for her and her family to see Cosby's stand-up show in Toronto in August, half a year after the alleged assault. Cosby, 79, has pleaded not guilty to three charges of aggravated indecent assault.

"As a woman, as a graduate of Spelman College ... and being the mother to a daughter it's nothing I take lightly or that I condone in any way, shape or form", she said.

The third count accuses Cosby of impairing Constand "by administering drugs, intoxicants or other means for the objective of preventing resistance".

At 11:30 a.m. Thursday, the judge convened the court in order read a statement from the jury that had been written about half an hour earlier. She made the report in her home province of Ontario, Canada.

She walked with him into court last week and sat through opening arguments. The third count goes to intent, or whether Cosby intentionally administered an intoxicant to Constand that night in his home.

Shortly afterward she began feeling dizzy and said her legs were like "jelly", Mason said.

His accuser testified that Cosby manipulating her into taking the pills, which left her "frozen" and unable to stop him from touching her breasts and genitals. "This is talking to a lover", McMonagle said, accusing Constand of trying to use Cosby's name for financial gain.

"Put them down, they're your friends".

On Thursday morning, the jurors told the judge they were deadlocked. "And they're hearing Mr. C.'s testimony and he's extremely truthful".

That interview occurred in the presence of Cosby's lawyers in New York City. Cosby, who is legally blind and carries a cane, has arrived in court each day with someone from the world of entertainment.

During his interview with law enforcement, Cosby said that he gave Benadryl to Constand.

If Cosby is convicted, even on one count, prosecutors will probably petition for his $1 million bail to be overturned so that he be taken into custody immediately. The reading took almost an hour on Wednesday.
