Cosby’s lawyers say the alleged assault on Andrea Constand could not have happened in January 2004, when she says the comedian knocked her out with pills and violated her. The date is important because Cosby was not charged until December 2015, just before the 12-year statute of limitations was set to expire.

The defenCe produced logs for Cosby’s private jet flights as well as several days’ worth of schedules listing his whereabouts and media appearances. The schedules do not indicate what Cosby was doing during his personal time.

Debbie Meister, his personal assistant, testified that the flights on Cosby’s Gulfstream IV – dubbed “Camille” after his wife of more than 50 years – coincided with comedy performances and other events on Cosby’s schedule.

None of the records showed him flying into or out of Philadelphia-area airports from December 2003 to February 2004.

Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt said outside court on Friday that the records “connect the dots” that the comedian wasn’t around Philadelphia at that time.

Cosby, 80, is charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault. He says his sexual encounter with Constand was consensual.

Sequestered jurors got an early start to the weekend as Day 10 of the trial drew to a close shortly after lunch. Testimony will resume on Monday. The jury is expected to get the case next week.

Earlier on Friday, Cosby’s lawyers told the judge they want jurors to hear from Constand’s confidante before deliberations get under way but said she’s been unreachable.

The defence asked for permission to read parts of Sheri Williams’ deposition into the record just as prosecutors did with Cosby’s old testimony. Williams gave the deposition as part of Constand’s 2005 lawsuit against Cosby, who wound up settling for nearly $US3.4 million.

Judge Steven O’Neill appeared sceptical of the defence request, saying he wants to hear from a witness who can show the defence has made a reasonable effort to serve Williams with a subpoena to testify in person. O’Neill put off a ruling until Monday.

Constand testified at Cosby’s first trial last year that she and Williams were good friends and would speak “at all hours of the day: morning, noon, and night”. She said they were in touch as she went to police in January 2005 with allegations Cosby drugged and molested her about a year earlier.
