Judge allows evidence on 'medication for sex' in Cosby trial

Andrea Constand Testifies Agreeing to $3.38M Settlement With Cosby Because She 'Just Wanted It Over'

Second trial: Constand testified she doesn't "recall ever having a conversation with" Jackson.

At the retrial, Cosby's new lawyer, Tom Mesereau, has called Constand a "con artist" who baited Cosby by feigning romantic interest in him and wound up with a $3.4 million civil settlement after she leveled a false claim of sexual molestation.

And in the interview, when asked if he ever knew Constand to be untruthful, Cosby said no.

Prosecutors made a decision to change their stance and file charges in December 2015 after scores of women stepped forward with allegations Cosby was a serial predator.

"She didn't buy ME a house", Gianna Constand snapped. The accusations prompted cops from the Cheltenham Police Department to quiz Cosby at his lawyer's New York City office on January 26, 2005.

"So you never had sexual intercourse [with Constand]?" an officer conducting the interview asked Cosby. But Constand's phone records show she did not make any calls to Cosby's mansion that month.

Constand, a former Temple University women's basketball administrator, remained calm and composed throughout her testimony, which lasted more than seven hours over two days.

The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand and the other women have done.

Authorities are reading a transcript of the January 26, 2005, interview to the jury Tuesday.

"I didn't say it verbally".

"Just because I'm concerned, I don't know how it affected her and I wanna know", Gianna Constand told Cosby in the 2005 call. "I'm giving Andrea time to say yes or no - to the area right there in the question zone", Cosby said, according to the deposition.

A police sergeant who investigated Constand's allegation a decade earlier testified Tuesday that the probe was abruptly shut down before police had finished their work.




The first criminal trial ended with the jury unable to reach a verdict.

The publication reports that yesterday Andrea told the court that Bill "came on" to her before he drugged and assaulted her.

During a retrial hearing on Tuesday, Cosby denied having had sex with one of his accusers, Andrea Constand. The prosecutor has said the evidence showed both parties "could be held in less than a flattering light".

The comic ultimately settled Constand's lawsuit for almost $3.4 million.

Former Temple employee Andrea Constand left the witness stand, and her mother took over as the next witness on Monday at Bill Cosby's sexual assault retrial.

Cosby said in the deposition he had used the pills on women for sex but did not say he used them with Constand. The entertainer said Constand did not object to being touched, and his lawyers say there is no evidence that he gave Constand quaaludes instead of over-the-counter medicine.

Bill Cosby has arrived for his sexual assault retrial, where prosecutors are building to a close in their case.

Gianna Constand said she was "very combative" with Cosby, demanding he tell her the medication he had given her daughter and what he had done to her.

Constand on Monday denied making up her story to set up a big pay day, and her mother testified that Cosby apologized.

Mesereau clawed back, making clear to jurors that Constand's answers have varied on the date of the alleged assault, how often she dined out with Cosby, whether she made a point of wearing a cashmere sweater he gifted her to one of their meetings and where she wound up when she visited his room at a CT casino.

Investigators and a pharmaceutical expert are expected to take the stand on the seventh day of the proceedings. Mesereau asked her at one point.

Constand testified she had taken blue pills from Cosby, and when Constand's mother questioned Cosby about the pills, he said they were prescription pills.
