The 79-year-old legendary entertainer, once loved by millions as "America's Dad", risks being sentenced to spend the rest of his life in prison if convicted on three counts of aggravated indecent assault. The deliberations are scheduled to resume Wednesday, June 14.
"Cosby's team is trying to plant seeds of doubt about this trial with his fans so they don't abandon him".
Meanwhile, Bill Cosby's TV daughter, Keisha Knight Pulliam, who played Rudy on The Cosby Show, has spoken out about her decision to walk arm-in-arm with the embattled comic on the first day of the trial. "It wasn't hostile. She didn't push me away, she said stop and I stopped".

Cosby's lawyers have argued Constand was Cosby's willing lover before she invented the assault as a way of getting to his money.
The verdict was to be called on Tuesday, but the fate of famed United States comedian, Bill Cosby, will have to wait till at least Wednesday, June 14, in the criminal case against him involving alleged sexual assault of a woman in 2004. He said Judge Steven O'Neill would not let the defense call Jackson to the witness stand.
Jackson says Constand once told her she'd been drugged and sexually assaulted.
She said Cosby gave her three pills and wine before touching her breasts, putting his fingers in her vagina and putting her hand on his erect penis after she sought his advice about moving to Canada and switching careers.
Since Constand's accusations went public in 2015, dozens of women have come forward to accuse Cosby of drugging and assaulting them over the decades.
Cosby is charged with drugging and molesting Constand in 2004.
"This court has not given (Cosby) a fair and impartial trial", Wyatt said.
Prosecutors portrayed Constand as a courageous victim seeking justice, while Cosby's lawyers claimed she was a former lover who fabricated her account of the alleged assault.
The prosecution leaned on Cosby's words in the 2005 deposition, in which he admitted obtaining sedatives with a view to having sex.
In addition, Constand initially told police that she had not been alone with Cosby prior to the alleged assault and that they had little contact after. The comedian said in depositions that he gave her the common allergy medication Benadryl - calling the pills her "friends" without disclosing their substance - and insisted the encounter was consensual.
The jury, sequestered for the duration of the trial and unaware of the back-and-forth outside, was keenly focused on what Cosby said about the pills he gave to Constand before their encounter.
Nonetheless, the comedian whose storytelling artistry fueled a $400 million fortune went quiet when he had the chance to take the stand, unwilling to risk cross-examination about his 60 other accusers if he denied ever drugging or molesting anyone.
"They've been intimate", he said.
They deliberated for four hours Monday night and roughly another 11 hours on Tuesday with no verdict. Constand - an athletic, 6-foot-tall basketball staffer - believes it was something stronger, saying they made her overly exhausted and unable to say no to or fight his advances.
