As jurors were listening to the judge overseeding Bill Cosby’s sex assault retrial read back prior testimony, Cosby’s lawyer fell asleep right there in his chair, says Page Six.
Tom Mersereau had his mouth open, and he kept falling asleep and waking up again as Judge Steven O’Neill was reading page after page of Cosby’s own words about Quaaludes and his sexual contact with the accuser Andrea Constand.
Cosby sat for the civil deposition over 2004, and 2005 and Mesereau slept at the defense table for about half an hour while the testimony was being read. The judge did not comment anything related to his nap.
Eventually, the jurors called it quits for the night without having any verdict yet. They are still deliberating whether the comedian drugged and molested Constand on a couch in his home back in 2004.
During the testimony, Cosby was seen smiling occasionally, and he spent most of the two-hour reading rubbing his face and eyes, according to Page Six.
He maintains that everything that happened between him and the former staffer at the Temple University was entirely consensual.
Cosby is faced with three charges of aggravated indecent assault for this alleged sex attack. If he gets convicted, he could be sentenced to up to 10 years behind bars on each count. Considering that he is 80 years old he may be faced with life in prison.
