Camille Comes Back: Bill Cosby's Wife Re-Emerges to Join Husband at Sex Assault Trial
The shamed comic's defense rested Monday after calling just one witness.
Bill Cosby’s wife, Camille, finally turned up at his sexual assault trial while his defense lawyer rested their case, calling only one witness.
Accuser Andrea Constand was not sexually attacked, but was in a romantic relationship with the entertainer, Cosby attorney Brian McMonagle told jurors.
"It’s sickening what happens when lawyers get involved,” he said. “It’s sickening what’s happening here."
Cosby’s attorneys called only Montgomery County Det. Richard Schaffer to the stand, who asked some follow-up questions to his testimony from last week.
McMonagle, in two-hour closing arguments, paced the courtroom, banged on the defense table, and at one point knelt down and peered into his client’s eyes.
“This ain’t right!" he shouted.
As expected, Cosby did not testify.
The 79-year-old comedian has steadfastly denied he assaulted Constand, as well as the claims from dozens of other women who contend he gave them drugs and sexually assaulted them.
Camille Cosby, his wife of more than 50 years, joined him Monday for the first time in the six-day criminal trial.
Constand, a former employee of Temple University in Pennsylvania, testified that Cosby gave her pills then grabbed her genitals and assaulted her after she passed out at his house in 2005.
The celebrity says the encounter was consensual.
