Court lays bare grim details of Bill Cosby sex allegations

Irune Rengel | 16 Junio, 2017, 14:09

Bill Cosby gives a thumbs-up gesture, departing from court after prosecutors rested their case in his sexual assault trial in Norristown, Pa., Friday. Cosby said Constand was conscious.

His decade-old comments are crucial because prosecutors contend that Cosby may have given Constand some Quaaludes on the night in question, not the Benadryl he says he offered to help her relax.

So far in the Bill Cosby sexual assault trial, the prosecution's case has been strong, stronger perhaps than the defense had expected.

"Nothing is ever off the table in a trial of this magnitude", Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt told reporters outside the courthouse on Friday. Cosby said he chose to pursue a friendship with Constand, which he hoped would grow to something more intimate.

Cosby then said he misunderstood the question and was referring to one woman, "not women", but later admitted under questioning that he had given Quaaludes to more than one woman.

It's giving jurors a look at his view of the January 2004 encounter where Andrea Constand says he drugged and violated her at his suburban Philadelphia home.

Prosecutors also called a psychologist, Veronique Valliere, to explain why sexual trauma victims sometimes have trouble remembering details and often delay reporting their attacks.

Scalise represents the state's 1st Congressional District, which includes Jefferson, Lafourche, Orleans, Plaquemines, St. Capitol police officers - part of Scalise's security detail - rushed to his defense, exchanging fire with the suspect.

The jury also heard from sections of the deposition in which Mr Cosby confessed to giving Ms Constand pills, which he called "friends".

Defense lawyers have been barred from discussing Constand's on-again, off-again relationship with a woman around the time she accused Cosby of sexually assaulting her in 2004 at his home in Cheltenham.

Constand has said Cosby gave her pills he suggested were herbal, leaving her barely conscious and unable to resist his advances.

He is charged with three counts of indecent aggravated assault, to which he has pleaded not guilty, insisting their sexual contact was consensual.

Jurors also heard Friday how Cosby told cops he thought of himself as "a dirty old man" during his sexual encounter with Constand.

He testified previous year that he had talked with Cosby's lawyer before making his decision and that it was meant to let Cosby speak freely at a potential civil deposition - the same deposition that prosecutors are now relying on at his trial.

He said: "I didn't want to talk about what did you give her".

Paul said he was in the batting cage when the gunman fired the first shot, which he initially thought was an isolated shot. Rep., manager of the Republican congressional baseball team, said it was a life-or-death struggle for 10 minutes.

Testifying would carry enormous risk, as prosecutors would be able to cross-examine Cosby about his deposition.

Prior to the start of the Bill Cosby trial, the comedian's legal team had attempted (and failed) to have the prosecution's expert witness' testimony completely excluded from the case.

"I'm thinking this is a dirty old man with a young girl", Cosby said, according to a decade-old deposition read to jurors Friday by a police officer.

"You're biased in this case, aren't you?' McMonagle asked her". The case was reopened in late 2015 - before the 12-year statute of limitations expired.

The judge in the case blocked an attempt by Cosby's lawyers to reveal to the jury that Constand is a lesbian.

In a barrage that all but destroyed Cosby's good-guy reputation, some 60 women have come forward to say he sexually violated them, but the statute of limitations for prosecution had run out in almost every case.
