Spokesman hints at Cosby possibly taking stand

NORRISTOWN, Pa. - Bill Cosby's spokesman is dangling the possibility that the 79-year-old comedian may testify at his sexual assault trial after all.

Andrew Wyatt told reporters during a lunch break on Friday that Cosby's team was still evaluating whether to have him take the stand.

Cosby said before the trial that he wouldn't testify, but Wyatt said that could change now that the prosecution is nearing the end of its case.

It's the first time Wyatt has spoken at length to reporters since the trial began.

Wyatt says Cosby was listening closely as accuser Andrea Constand testified this week, and that he's confident his lawyers will show they were in a consensual, romantic relationship.

Wyatt says some members of Cosby's family will join him in court as the trial wears on. He says Cosby told wife Camille to stay away from the courthouse so she didn't have to endure the "media circus."
