jim is live now outside of the courthouse. >> reporter: good evening rick, i think you put your finger on it. this jury is asking questions, coming back and asking to have deposition passages reread to them. may be fair to say that this jury is struggling to reach a verdict in this case. this jury came back here at 9:00 this morning. and after working for four hours yesterday, if you thought this was going to be a quick and easy verdict, well you would be wrong, bill cosby arrived here early this morning, this time without a company of his wife, camille. so would this be the day that cosby learned his fate? would this jury from pittsburgh convict bill cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting andrea constand in 2004? or would this panel acquit cosby of one, two or three counts of
5:01 pm
aggravated accounts of indecent assault. the self proclaimed experts are speculating and analyzing and wondering about the significance of this jury coming back yesterday and again today to ask questions and to review cosby's deposition from a decade ago. but we just wait. more importantly cosby and constand just wait. i want to bring in "action news" reporter vernon odom also here. vernon even if we have read every word of testimony and even if we have read ever word of that deposition from ten years ago you are in a position to tell us something we don't know, and that is because you have been in this courtroom throughout the trial. what does it feel like inside of the courtroom? what is the tension level? is it palpable? >> the tension level jim is very
5:02 pm
high. it has been high ever since andrea constand came to the witness stand last week that was a week ago tuesday. the jury made several requests today including asking to hear testimony from the constand -- detective rather that first interviewed constand about the alleged assault back in '04 after she returned to canada. the jury returned but first asked judge o'neil for a red back of key portions of bill cosby's sworn testimony from a decade ago followed by a lawsuit filed by andrea constand. >> constand testifies that cosby drugged and assaulted her in his mansion. he said in the deposition he gave constand the equivalent of
5:03 pm
1.5 benadryl pills and the heavy petting that followed was entirely convention you'll. constand says she was too drugged up to resist him. and that constitutes the felony assault charges against the showbiz legend. constand and her mother remain at the courthouse during the wait for the jury's verdict. >> jim, several informs sources here at the courthouse, courthouse veterans are leaking out that the jury seems to be seriously divided. 1 to 3 jurors holding out on a possible conviction or acquittal whatever it is we don't know at this hour. so the deliberations continue at this hour. after they hear the latest from the canadian detective who testified last week. we could be here long into the night again or well into tomorrow.

5:05 pm
a not guilty verdict because it's taking so long or it's a hung jury because of the questions they were asking. that is all nonsense, you cannot predict? >> there is to one that can read those tea leaves. >> but tea leaves are being read outside of montgomery county courthouse in norristown. the jury is up there and we don't know what the dynamics are we don't know how many holdouts or what the ratio is convict to acquit is on this jury. we do know that they are working hard and trying to come to a verdict here tonight. but of course there is no guarantee it will happen before this day is over. if something does happen we'll have it immediately on 6abc.com, the 6 abc app and of course "action news." monica -- >> thank you. of course as we said we are
