Bill Cosby's wife is showing her support during his current sexual assault trial, walking arm-in-arm with the comedian today as he headed in to his trial. According to ABC Newsthis is Camille's first time attending the proceedings in Norristown, Pennsylvania.

Bill Cosby did not testify during the trial and has pled not guilty. The plaintiff, Andrea Constand, testified that Cosby drugged and assaulted her in 2004. “In my head I was trying to get my hands to move or my legs to move, but I was frozen and those [mental] messages didn’t get there and I was very limp, so I wasn’t able to fight him," she said. "I wanted it to stop."

Cosby has been accused by over 50 women of drugging or sexual misconduct. He has denied the allegations.

In the last hours the defense rested after calling just one witness, a detective. The prosecution rested its case last Friday and will deliver its closing arguments this afternoon. Jury deliberations and a verdict could follow shortly after.

73-year-old Camille was deposed twice last year as part of a civil suit against her husband. The two have been married since 1964.
