Bill Cosby 'drugged friend then sexually assaulted her'

Cosby does not plan to testify, meaning the trial's outcome will likely hinge on whether jurors believe Constand's testimony.

"I was very confused and disoriented", she said. To learn more about her, here is our Andrea Constand wiki.

Not long after she arrived at his home on the night in question in January 2004 to discuss a career crisis, she alleged that he offered her three pills he said were herbal medication, she said Wednesday. She also has a brother-in-law, who is a Canadian police officer.

Constand kept her cool during the onslaught, seeming to shrug off the inconsistencies as the types of "distractions" prosecutor Kristen Feden spoke about during her opening statement.

Toward the end of her testimony, Constand stopped and broke down, wiping tears from her eyes. She described him as a "mentor".

When Cosby began to fall asleep, Constand suggested that she should depart for the evening.

Gianna Constand also critiqued Agrusa's line of questioning. "I don't want that", Constand recalled telling him.

Cosby is accused of drugging and sexually assaulting former Temple University employee, Andrea Constand. Cosby has pleaded not guilty to the charges. One time, he placed a hand on her thigh, she said. "Of course she was calling him back".

She managed the women's basketball team at Temple while he was a high-profile trustee. Constand has said neither of those assertions was correct. When she confronted Cosby, Constand claims that he said, "I thought you had an orgasm, didn't you?" She did so out of fear of losing her job.

The whole scandal was rekindled in 2014 when comedian Hannibal Buress reportedly accused Cosby of being a rapist during one of his comedy shows in Philadelphia.

Cosby showed his appreciation via Twitter. She has previously testified that she did not immediately share her allegations with police or her family. "D$3 efense attorneys have proof, including Constand's later interviews with police, in which she describes private meals with the entertainer before January 2004 and a visit to his hotel room at a CT casino". On Wednesday, Constand will continue be questioned by the defense. Where McMonagle alleged Constand lay in bed with him, she contended she sat on the bed next to him.

About 20 minutes after taking them she said she started slurring her words and had trouble with her vision. "I said, 'What are they?"

"My truth was to be here and to be supportive, and it's not always easy to do what you feel is truthful and what you feel is right when there's so much controversy". "Her circle of friends became small". She said on Tuesday that she felt her continued friendship with Cosby after the alleged assault was important to the school's athletic department. "I just wanted to go home".

The dramatic scene was more than a dozen years in the making.

Instead, she strove to undermine Constand's credibility by focusing on discrepancies in her statements to police in 2005, when she first reported the incident. She sued in civil court, and Cosby settled the case in 2006. The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are sexual assault victims unless they grant permission, which Constand has done. While Cosby's lawyers hope this will show their client's innocence, Constand had another explanation for any differences in her stories.

The witness had told police that before the alleged assault, there had been no sexual contact between her and Cosby. "It was a lot of confusion putting a lot of dates together".

If anyone had the notion that Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial would be anything but traumatic, reports of what went down in the courtroom today should dispel that pretty quickly.

The stage was set for her testimony after prosecutors used the first day and a half of the trial to argue that Cosby made a habit of knocking women out with pills and then molesting them.
