Defense attorney Brian McMonagle told the jury that Cosby and Constand were lovers who had enjoyed secret "romantic interludes", insisting the 2004 encounter was consensual.
Speaking of, he followed that up with the timeless classic "She knew what she was getting into", setting a romantic scene where Constand and Cosby drank cognac by the fire together like lovers-or like two executives talking business at a country club-a meeting Constand agreed to even after Cosby had tried to put his hands down her trousers. Cosby then placed her on the couch and sexually assaulted her without her consent, she said.
Just hours before the Bill Cosby defense team rested their case, prosecutors had already done the same.
Closing arguments are up next, which means the jury could begin deliberations as soon as late Monday afternoon.
Cosby, 79, has pleaded not guilty to drugging and molesting Constand, 44, at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004.
A conviction could put Cosby in prison for the rest of his life.
"You know from his own mouth that he has a romantic interest in her from the first that he saw her", Steele said.
His deposition was sealed for years until a judge released parts in 2015 at the request of The Associated Press, prompting a new set of prosecutors to take a fresh look at the case and charge him. The prosecution represents Andrea Constand, a former mentee of the comedian. Other than the Constand case, Cosby has never been criminally charged in any other alleged incident.
In those depositions, Cosby admitted to stockpiling quaaludes for the express objective of giving them to young women he wanted to have sexual contact with. She says they left her semi-conscious. That is what this case is about.
The comedian's lawyers called to the stand only Detective Richard Schaffer, who was used mainly as a vehicle for the defense to move into evidence statements that the alleged victim, Andrea Constand, gave police.
Jurors also heard Cosby's version in the form of his police statement and his lurid deposition in her 2005 lawsuit. According to Constand, she was suffering the effects of a significant trauma when she first reported the sexual assault to law enforcement.
Jurors asked that the judge read them back more than a dozen portions of the testimony, in which Cosby spoke about giving drugs to women he wanted to have sex with. Instead, Cosby was accompanied by friends and former co-stars, such as Keisha Knight Pulliam, who played his daughter on The Cosby Show.
Cosby had said before the trial he would not testify. Wyatt said on Friday that Camille Cosby continued to support him, despite the accusations of assault from dozens of women. Cosby did not take the stand, despite suggestions from his spokesman that it was a possibility. While Bill Cosby is facing no criminal charges in connection to his alleged decades-old sexual assault against Johnson, her testimony regarding being drugged and sexually assaulted by the star was intended by the prosecution to establish that Cosby had demonstrated a pattern of behavior similar to what Constand alleged in her sexual assault claim.
