Jurors in Bill Cosby'ssexual assault case are listening to his testimony about getting quaaludes in the 1970s to give to young women before sex. Defendant puts a new twist on an old argument: "that because Ms. Constand did not reveal this most personal detail about her life she must have been asking for defendant to drug and sexually assault her".
In the deposition, he admits giving quaaludes before sex in 1976 to one of his approximately 60 accusers. The prosecution will continue to lean on Cosby's past deposition, where he apologizes and admits to digitally penetrating Constand.

His interactions with fans outside the courthouse, coupled with a parade of show business friends who have attended the trial in support, have signaled he is intent on repairing his public image. Cosby also claimed that he did not have any quaaludes in his possession or in any of his residences around the time he met Constand in 2002.
