Police Investigating Audio Recordings Of Cosby Trial Posted To Social Media

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- A video from inside a courtroom during the Bill Cosby trial has surfaced on social media, and now Montgomery County detectives are involved.

The nearly two-hour long video opens with photos outside the courthouse and audio of the judge instructing the jury prior to closing arguments.

It then includes the full audio of closing arguments from Bill Cosby's attorney, Brian McMonagle, over still images of the video screen that set up in the auxiliary courtroom.

That screen shows the courtroom with Cosby and his attorneys sitting at the defense table.

Pennsylvania law prohibits photos or recording during court proceedings.

The video was posted on YouTube under the title "MUST SEE__ The Cosby Case Defense Closing Arguments."

Also on the same account is video taken in the hallway, which was also a violation of the decorum order.

The person doing the recording says she is not supposed to be recording and will have to shut her phone off.
