5:32 pm
waived the arraignarraignment, getting to the trial could be lengthy. what's next? >> like we said before, the prosecutors are probably going to bring what's called the 404b motion. evidently, there's other alleged victims where thisedly happened to them. under this 404 b evidence, bring in that, try to get a judge to say it would be admissible, not to prove bad character of mr. cosby, but show motive, there was plan. there was intent for this kind of exact conduct alleged here. it has to be close in time. it has to be similar in actions. if that kind of emotion is made, that's going to be a trial within the trial, and that's going to go a very long way in the determination, i think, at the end on what's ultimately going to happen in this case. that is what happens from the state's perspective at this point moving forward. >> that's the prosecutors.
5:33 pm
what's next for the defense, judge? >> well, the defense, obviously, can make different motions to the court to excertain parts of evidence. prior to position testimony, i'm sure that's subject to a motion. any othering statements that mr. cosby made probably also they'll file motions to suppress that. they will file what we call emotions to limit testimony that comes out in the case. all these pretrial motions shape the case, and that's really where all the activity takes place. the case, the trial usually goes very smoothly because all of these other things are done pretrial. >> all right, judge michael, a lot to be seen, but we appreciate your time as always. thank you. >> thank you. >> and count on us to follow the cosby case as it heads to trial. we'll bring you the latest every step of the way on the air and on the nbc 10 app. right now at 5:00, neighbors in camden county on the lookout.
