Bill Cosby arrives for his sexual assault trial at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pa., Tuesday, June 13, 2017.

The 12-member jury, havefailed to reach a verdict on Monday.
Brian McMonagle claimed Andrea Constand told a stone-cold lie as he tried to convince the seven men, five women jury that the alleged victim has a reputation of lying, referring to the fact that Constand has changed her statements many times before.
Both Constand, now 44, and Cosby agree the performer gave her pills on the night in question.
"McMonagle focused on Constand's shifting story, pointing out that she changed her estimate of when the alleged assault occurred several times in speaking with police in 2005".
Mason testified that Constand said she'd waited about a year to come forward because she felt embarrassed and was daunted by Cosby's standing at his alma mater, Temple University, where she worked for the basketball program.
The defense planned on calling Jackson to the stand Monday as its second witness - but was barred from doing so by Montgomery County Judge Steven O'Neill, who called her testimony "hearsay".
Steele described Cosby as a calculating sexual predator who not only drugged and assaulted Constand more than a decade ago, but also cruelly recast the attack as consensual and romantic. "Her response was that it had not happened but she could say it happened and file charges, file a civil suit, get the money, go to school and open a business".
Andrea Constand says she was drugged and molested.
Philadelphia defence lawyer Alan Tauber says that's less likely in Cosby's case because his fame makes him an unlikely flight risk.
White House Defends Trump Criticisms of London Mayor
He took the Mayor of London's quotes out of context , and even when corrected, argued that Khan was making a "pathetic excuse". Trump tweeted another round of criticism Tuesday morning. "[Mainstream media] is working hard to sell it!" tweeted Trump.
He is charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault, each one punishable by up to 10 years behind bars.
The 79-year-old comedian is charged with drugging and molesting a woman at his home in 2004. He says it was consensual. The fate of Bill Cosby rested today in the hands of a USA jury deliberating for a second day on whether to convict the pioneering black comedian of sexual assault.
Count 1 alleges that Cosby didn't have consent when he penetrated Constand's genitals with his fingers. In those interviews, Cosby admitted to sexual contact with Constand and said they had previously had a romantic encounter.
After prosecutors declined to charge Cosby in 2005, Constand sued him and settled out of court for an undisclosed sum.
The black comedian, once known as America's Dad for his portrayal of kindly Dr Cliff Huxtable on The Cosby Show, suggested recently that race could have played a role in the case against him.
Constand's lawsuit against Cosby had elicited four days of testimony from him about his sexual conduct with some of the other women. His testimony was sealed for years until parts of it were released by a federal judge in 2015 at the request of The Associated Press. Cosby says he gave Constand Benadryl to help her relax, then fondled her. Prosecutors believe he gave her something stronger.
"Think about that, in terms of the courage Andrea Constand has shown", Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele said in closing arguments as Constand sat with detectives, her mother and other accusers in the front row.
The sequestered panel deliberated for four hours Monday night after hearing closing arguments on the sixth day of the trial.
On Tuesday, jurors returned to court asking to hear again from Cosby's original deposition in the case from 2005.
Constand testified last week that Cosby gave her pills that left her unable to resist his assault.
Cosby did not take the stand, and the defense rested after just one witness. A guide on ending victim blaming from Southern Connecticut State University also says that men and women can avoid perpetuating rape culture and victim blaming by being "active bystanders" and speaking up when they hear offensive comments being made about sexual assault and/or about victims of sexual assault.
