Cosby arrives for final arguments in sexual assault retrial

Prosecutors and Cosby’s defense team were each set to deliver closing arguments Monday, taking a final shot at convincing a jury he is innocent or guilty of charges he drugged and sexually assaulted a former friend.

Cosby, 80, is undergoing his second trial on charges that he drugged and raped Andrea Constand, 45, at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2014.

In the trial last year, a deadlocked jury was unable to reach a verdict, leading prosecutors to try him again.

About 50 women have accused Cosby of sexual assault, sometimes after drugging them, going back decades. All the accusations, apart from Constand’s, were too old to be the subject of criminal prosecution.
