- Accuser testified Cosby knocked her out with pills and sexually assaulted her at his home in 2004
- Lawyers tried to show her as an opportunist who feigned romantic interest in Cosby
A woman says Bill Cosby described in graphic detail his sexual encounter with her daughter and then apologized.
Gianna Constand told the jury at Cosby’s suburban Philadelphia sexual-assault retrial she called him demanding to know the medication he’d given her daughter and what he’d done to her.
She said Cosby told her he gave Andrea Constand a prescription drug but didn’t give her the name. She said he described their sexual encounter and apologized for his behavior.
Gianna Constand testified Monday she was concerned because her daughter hadn’t been the same since leaving Temple University in Philadelphia in March 2004, about two months after the alleged assault, and moving back to Canada.
The 80-year-old comedian is charged with drugging and molesting Andrea Constand. He said it was consensual.
Constand testified Cosby knocked her out with pills and sexually assaulted her at his home in 2004.
During cross-examination Monday, Cosby’s lawyers tried to show her as an opportunist who feigned romantic interest in Cosby so she could later make a false accusation against him and file a lawsuit. Cosby settled the case for about $3.4 million.
Constand denied setting Cosby up.
The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand has done.
