Bill Cosby is in more trouble after his words were used against him. This took place at the Montgomery County Courthouse situated in suburban Philadelphia. As expected, the celebrity’s controversy has sparked different reactions globally and a lot of people are eager to hear the final judgment.
To the uttermost shock of everyone in court, the defense team only fielded one witness in the court hearing. The prosecution showed great determination to win the case. In making the closing arguments, prosecution majorly dwelt on a number of statements that Cosby made some 1o years back.
The 79-year-old comedian continues to deny the allegations leveled against him. In defending himself, he said that it wasn’t true that he drugged and sexually assaulted Andrea Constand in 2004.
Bitter consequences await the top comedian if prosecution succeeds to incriminate him. He would be facing the felony aggravated indecent assault. Cosby could serve a 10-year sentence and the fine could be about $25,000 for every count.
One would have expected Cosby to give his stand in relation to the matter. Instead, his attorneys focused more on painting Constand in negative light. According to them, Constand was unreliable, troubled and above all a woman with great thirst to ruin the legends remarkable reputation. It sends out mixed signals considering that a number of other women have also showed up with similar accusations against Cosby. They say that the top entertainer raped them about four decades ago.
In the afternoon court session, prosecution successfully brought out the glaring consistencies between both Constand and Cosby’s stories. However, this did not go as far as indicating the pills that Cosby administered that particular night that Constant claims to have been raped.
Brian McMonagle, a defense attorney said that it wasn’t right for Constand to tell what he referred to as “a stone-cold lie.”He urged the court to see matters as they were. Constand was a “lover” in opposition to the perception she had managed to paint of herself as a victim.
The acquittal of Cosby is unexpected to most of the people. In case it happens, it will paint a very bad image of Constand.
