Prosecution Hones in on Bill Cosby’s Own Statements in Sex Assault Trial Closing

In a powerful closing on Monday afternoon, the prosecution used Bill Cosby‘s own words to try to convince a jury he should be convicted of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his home in 2004.

“Why are we here?” Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, District Attorney Kevin Steele asked jurors as he began his two-hour-and-15-minute closing argument.

“He has told you what he has done, and there are a number of factors we’ll go through in this case to discuss what he did afterward that goes to his consciousness of guilt on what he does,” Steele said, referring to Cosby, 79.

The jury was sent home late Monday night after not reaching a verdict.

The comedian faces three counts of aggravated indecent assault in connection with Constand’s allegations. She claims he sexually assaulted her at his Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, mansion in January 2004. CLICK FOR MORE
