Bill Cosby: What's next for the comedian

18 June 2017

Keshia Knight Pulliam, who played Bill Cosby's youngest daughter on "The Cosby Show", continued to voice her support for her TV dad Wednesday - as jurors entered their third day of deliberations.

Jurors made the request to have portions of Andrea Constand's testimony read back to them after deliberating about 21 hours without reaching a verdict in a case that has already helped demolish Cosby's nice-guy reputation.

Though dozens of women have accused Cosby of sexual misconduct, only Constand's accusations led to criminal charges. "I wasn't shocked since, this was exactly what Andrea said she could do, and so she did".

"In my interactions with him, he's in good spirits". The defense rested June 9 after calling 12 witnesses over 5 days. He further said that, in her first interview, she claimed to have never been alone with his client before the alleged attack, but later contradicted that statement saying that she spent time alone at his home before the alleged assault at a CT casino resort.

Oil prices decline as doubts grow over OPEC's supply cuts
The EIA expects US output to grow by 460,000 bpd in 2017, while OPEC forecasts USA production to increase by 800,000 bpd in 2017. The so-called US driving season starts at the beginning of summer when gasoline demand peaks to its highest level of the year.

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. During his interview with Ms. Constand, Sargent Schaffer acknowledged that she was "anxious", a word Cosby had previously used to describe her before given her the pills.

"In my head, I was trying to get my hands to move, get my legs to move, but I was frozen and those messages didn't get there", she said, her voice breaking. If convicted, Cosby would also be required to register as a sex offender.

The comedian also faces a defamation lawsuit by model Janice Dickinson, who claims Cosby drugged and raped her in Lake Tahoe, California, in 1982.

Jackson, a student adviser at Temple University where Constand worked as director of basketball operations for the women's basketball team, said she had regular contact with Constand and, as a result, the two became fast friends.

As a grinning Curry held daughter Riley in his arms, Durant stood next to them with his left hand on the point guard's head. Wojnarowski added that the Miami Heat , with whom James won his first two NBA Championships , could also be a possibility.

Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt, who guides the vision-impaired Cosby throughout his day, has drawn throngs of cameras with his updates on Cosby's mood - "very confident", is a common refrain - and assertions that the 79-year-old comedian isn't getting a fair shake. "It wasn't hostile. She didn't push me away, she said stop and I stopped".

Constand initially told police about the alleged assault in January 2005, a year after she says it took place.

Sargent Shaffer told prosecutors that Cosby had a bag brought to the Manhattan law office and that it contained a number of pill bottles.

Montgomery County may be only 20 miles from downtown Philadelphia, but it might as well be a world away from the glamour of Bill Cosby's other life. "Her eyes were...all over and she was anxious", he said.
