Prosecutors were expected to continue using comedian Bill Cosby’s own graphic words against him at his sexual assault trial, as they appeared close to completing their case.

Jurors in Norristown, Pennsylvania, saw excerpts of a sworn deposition in which Cosby acknowledged giving Andrea Constand – then an employee at his alma mater Temple University – Benadryl pills in 2004 before engaging in what he portrayed as consensual sexual activity.

Constand testified earlier this week that the pills prosecutors suggested might not have been Benadryl left her incapacitated at his Philadelphia home before Cosby sexually assaulted her.

She is one of dozens of women to level similar allegations at the one-time star of the 1980s hit television series The Cosby Show.

Cosby, 79, has denied all of the claims. – Reuters
