Bill Cosby and his attorneys filed legal documents asking the judge to let them introduce evidence accusing alleged sexual assault victim Andrea Constand of being gay.
If she were gay, he wouldn't have had sex with her?Bill Cosby and his lawyers attempted one last strategy to clear the shamed comedian's name. The 79-year-old's attorneys asked the judge to introduce evidence which they claimed proved that Andrea Constand was gay.
The former actor arrived at the courthouse on Friday alongside comedian Joe Torry.
Cosby's legal team wanted to show the jury that Constand deceived him, suggesting that he would have never had sex with her if he knew she was gay, TMZ reported.
However, if Constand is actually gay, that would just prove that she most likely did not consent to Cosby's sexual advances.
The prosecution claimed Cosby's attorneys were "victim shaming" and that they violated Pennsylvania law, which does not allow evidence involving an alleged victim's sexual past.
The judge denied the defense motion. The trial is expected to last about two weeks, and Friday marked the fifth day of the sexual assault trial.
Andrea Constand told the police that she had a boyfriend when she was 14 and had sexual contact with a man when she was in her 20's.
