Bill Cosby Declines to Testify, Defense Rests Within Minutes

Bill Cosby declined to testify in his sexual assault trial on Monday, and his defense rested in a matter of minutes after calling just one brief witness to the stand.

The comedian told Judge Steven O’Neill he didn’t plan to testify. In criminal trials, defendants don’t have to take the stand.

On Friday, the prosecution finished up after calling 12 witnesses to the stand, as CNN reports.

The court is in closing arguments, which means the jury could reach a verdict today.
