Bill Cosby Claims Not To Like Intercourse

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

Prosecutors in Bill Cosby's sexual assault retrial will present the jury with the disgraced comedian's 2005 testimony about giving quaaludes to women after a judge ruled it admissible on Tuesday, The Associated Press reported Tuesday.

On Monday, Constand testified she didn't "recall ever having a conversation with" Jackson. Prosecutors have suggested he gave her something stronger - perhaps quaaludes, a popular party drug in the 1970s that was banned in the USA in 1982. This time around they're expected to at least call Marguerite Jackson, Constand's colleague at Temple, and have been attempting to compel to testify Sherri Williams, a friend of Constand's. Last year, when the jury deadlocked, only one other woman was allowed to testify to support Constand's accusations. Cosby's admission of drugging women was ruled admissible during Cosby's first trial as well, and this second jury has also heard Cosby's prior admissions of fondling Constand, although he maintains that their encounters were consensual.

While the prosecution has been pushing for the jury to hear about Cosby's statements about using Quaaludes to entice women into sex, the defense has rigorously objected, saying at one point this morning that the revelation has no bearing on the case.

Andrea Constand, key witness in the case against actor and comedian Bill Cosby, leaves the courtroom during a recess on the sixth day of Cosby's sexual assault retrial at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pa., April 16, 2018. She again denied knowing her.

"Then what are you doing here?" he demanded.

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.

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

Prosecutors on Monday delivered a one-two punch as chief accuser Andrea Constand rejected defence allegations that she concocted her story to score a big payday, and her mother testified that Cosby apologized.




"He said to me, 'Don't worry, Mom, there was no penile penetration, '" Gianna Constand testified.

"I don't like it", he replied.

If convicted, Cosby could get up to 10 years in prison on each of three charges of aggravated indecent assault.

The former TV star ultimately settled Constand's lawsuit for almost US$3.4 million (NZ4.6 million). And she said her phone calls to Cosby were about basketball and had nothing to do with romance. But Schaffer pointed out how numerous calls to Cosby were preceded by calls to Constand's voicemail.

Constand testified that she felt a duty to answer Cosby's inquiries because he was a powerful alumnus and trustee. She said Cosby looked at her "like I was crazy" when she confronted him about what had happened. "We saw a lot of times she would make a series of calls - her number, the following numbers".

Cosby told investigators he had a social and romantic relationship with Constand. The defense has called the other accusers irrelevant to the case.

In the deposition excerpts, which were read aloud by a detective and a prosecutor, Cosby graphically described what he characterized as a consensual sexual encounter with Andrea Constand, who alleges she was sexually assaulted by the man once known as "America's Dad".
