The jury in Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial deliberated for a fifth day Friday. A day earlier, the judge told jurors to keep trying to reach a unanimous verdict after declaring themselves deadlocked.

The sequestered jury of seven men and five women have paused deliberations eight times to revisit testimony or ask for clarity on the phrasing of the charges. Cosby is charged with sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his home in suburban Philadelphia in 2004. The 79-year-old comedian says the encounter was consensual.
