Jury to deliberate second day in Cosby sexual assault trial

Jury to deliberate second day in Cosby sexual assault trialA US jury will resume deliberations Tuesday on whether disgraced comedy legend Bill Cosby sexually assaulted a woman at his Philadelphia home more than 13 years ago, after failing to reach a verdict Monday. After around four hours of deliberations on Monday, which continued over dinner and past nightfall, the seven-man, five-woman panel were sent back to the hotel where they are being sequestered after failing to reach a verdict. In closing statements, the prosecution portrayed the actor as a sexual predator who deliberately drugged 44-year-old Canadian Andrea Constand so she would be unable to resist his assault in January 2004.
