Jurors got the case late Monday afternoon.
"Just tell the truth - what are we doing here?" he continued, one of many exclamations he made in a fiery and at times histrionic closing that lasted almost two hours.
"He says he gives her drugs".
McMonagle also questioned why Constand would continue spending time privately with Cosbyeven after he made sexual advances that she said she rebuffed. She claimed that when she asked him if the pills he was offering were herbal, he said, "Yes, put them down".
The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand and Johnson have done.
The sexual assault trial is taking place in Norristown, Pennsylvania.
Next, instructions are expected to be given to the jury, which will decide on the three counts of aggravated indecent assault. Cosby has said he is legally blind because of glaucoma. If convicted, Cosby faces up to 10 years in prison for each charge. He argued that Cosby used his role as a mentor and respected public figure to gain Constand's trust and then drug her and take advantage of her.
Cosby said that he couldn't read the letters on the prescription bottle, and asked her to put Andrea on the line.
"Cosby testified over a decade ago as part of her lawsuit, eventually settling the case for an undisclosed sum". Still, if it comes to be, Cosby will have faced his criminal comeuppance in the single case that has come to trial. He also pointed out that Constand telephoned Cosby dozens of times after the alleged assault. She sat in the front row of the courtroom. He said that the comic's 2004 sexual encounter with Constand was consensual and that they had been intimate before.
Cosby is charged with sexually assaulting a woman at his suburban Philadelphia home in January 2004. But some of Steele's closings were spent fending off the defense's arguments that Constand made inconsistent statements to investigators and in her testimony. "This is talking to a lover", McMonagle said of one 49-minute call.
"This is not a civil case about money, money, money".
Jurors did hear Cosby's side of the story, though not in his voice.
District Attorney Kevin Steele's closing arguments were businesslike and direct.
This item has been updated to delete an incorrect reference to Constand visiting with Cosby after the encounter. "This is why this case went into a trashcan, because Mr. Cosby told them everything they needed to know".
In mid-May, Cosby said during an interview with Sirius-XM radio host Michael Smerconish that he would not testify. In court, the 79-year-old comedian told the judge he decided not to testify in his own defense.
Police Detective Richard Schaffer, who also testified as part of the prosecution's case, was the only witness called by the defense.
Cosby says his attorneys won't call any character witnesses. Constand said she had to return calls from the Temple University trustee because he was an important booster and she worked for the women's basketball team.
Bill Cosby's wife Camille has arrived at court with him on the sixth day of his sexual assault trial. Last week, neither she nor their four daughters appeared. That is evidenced, he said, by how Cosby left Constand disheveled on a couch after the incident. But a spokesman said last week it still was a possibility.
Constand, under the influence of three drugs given to her by Cosby and who briefly lost consciousness, could not and did not give consent, he said.
