A desperate Bill Cosby may go against his own word and take the stand in his sexual assault trial!
RadarOnline.com has learned Cosby’s lawyers are currently debating whether to call the 79-year-old comedian to the stand in his own defense.
“Nothing is ever off the table in a trial of this magnitude,” Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt told reporters outside the courthouse on Friday.
That’s a complete change in tactics for the former funnyman, who just last month told SiriusXM’s Michael Smerconish that his lawyers thought silence was golden.
“When you have to deal with examination, cross-examination, etcetera, etcetera, more than two sides to every story, sometimes it’s four or five,” Cosby explained. “And what people want to say and want you to say and how they maneuver, and, yes, I do have lawyers protect me – ‘objection,’ ‘sustained.’ But I just don’t want to sit there and have to figure out what I believe is a truthful answer as to whether or not I’m opening a can of something that my lawyers are scrambling to shut.”
But as the defense gets ready to present their case, there may be a need to hear from Cosby himself.
“You have to look at all your options,” Wyatt said outside the court. “In a ballgame, things change and players are taken out and sometimes the star player plays and sometimes he doesn’t.”
