  • Bill Cosby walks from the courtroom during jury deliberations in his sexual assault trial at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown Pa. Tuesday

By Tuesday night, they looked exhausted. "This is how juries deliberate". He says it was consensual.

Bill Cosby has arrived for the start of Day 3 of jury deliberations in his sexual assault trial.

Chloe Goins, a former model who claims Cosby drugged and sexually abused her at the Playboy Mansion in 2008, is also suing the comedian on sexual battery and other claims. It never happened, but the suggestion was enough to dominate the headlines just as prosecutors were closing their case with Cosby's damaging deposition testimony. Constand told police she was semi-conscious as he touched her breast and genitals. She explained her support by saying it comes down to how she would feel if she was facing a hard time. "I wasn't shocked since, this was exactly what Andrea said she could do, and so she did".

However, this move raised concern from Victoria Valentino, one of the 50-plus women who has accused Cosby of sexual misconduct.

"This court has not given (Cosby) a fair and impartial trial", declared Andrew Wyatt, who has been at Cosby's side for much of the trial.

Constand said on the witness stand she didn't know Jackson. In those interviews, Cosby admitted to sexual contact with Constand and said they had previously had a romantic encounter.

The jury is deliberating three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault. And here is Cosby's defense: That drugging women used to be "fashionable".

Constand testified over two days last week for the prosecution.

Cosby's fate in the hands of a jury today
Constand, 44, claims Cosby knew she had an aversion to pharmaceutical drugs and assured her the pills were "herbal". On Monday, he urged the jury to reject the idea that Constand's sexual encounter with Cosby had been consensual.

Earlier testimony by Gianna Constand, the accuser's mother, suggested that Mr. Cosby tried to buy the family's silence by offering to pay for graduate school. She believes he gave her something stronger than Benadryl on the night she says he molested her.

Jurors reviewed more than a dozen passages from Cosby's deposition.

Bill Cosby leaves the Montgomery County Courthouse during his sexual assault trial, Tuesday, June 13, 2017, in Norristown, Pa. Jurors want to hear more excerpts from a deposition Cosby gave as part of Constand's civil suit against him.

Even though Judge Steven O'Neill allowed testimony from Andrea Constand's neighbor, who said the Cosby accuser wasn't herself after the alleged incident, O'Neill refused to allow Jackson to testify.

The Cosby Show star, 79, has long maintained the sex he had with Constand, now 44, was consensual.

The jury in Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial continued for a third day of deliberations Wednesday, after a marathon 16 hours of debate over the past two days.

Bill Cosby is still waiting for the final verdict for his sexual assault case after the jury failed to reach a verdict during its second day of deliberation.

The case has sparked debate over celebrity, race, power and gender. She said she got up to leave and found Cosby in the kitchen.
