Cosby’s long-suffering wife joins him for closing arguments
NORRISTOWN, Pa. — Bill Cosby arrived in court Tuesday for closing arguments in his sex assault case, accompanied for the first time at his retrial by his long-suffering wife.
Camille Cosby, 74, smiled and held her husband’s arm as protesters screamed that he would burn in the “oceans of hell” for his alleged abuse of some 60 women.
Jurors could begin deliberating Cosby’s fate as early as Tuesday afternoon. The panel of seven men and five women have remained sequestered since the trial kicked off April 9.
Cosby, 80, stands accused of three counts of aggravated indecent assault for drugging and molesting former Temple University staffer, Andrea Constand, inside his suburban Philadelphia estate in January 2004.
His defense attorneys are expected to argue that Constand is a “con artist” out for “money” who plotted to entrap the lonely celebrity.
Prosecutors will continue to insist that Cosby gave Constand drugs – “three little friends to help her relax” – before sexually assaulting her.
If convicted, Cosby faces up to ten years behind bars on each count.
