Bill Cosby's chief accuser denies romantic relationship before alleged assault

She said they became friends over conversations about the team and later her career.

When she asked if they were herbal, he nodded, she said.

"I began slurring my words...." I wasn't able to fight ... "And I felt him take my hand, place it on his penis and move it back and forth". "When I stood up, my legs were not strong and I began to panic a little bit, and Mr. Cosby helped me by my arm and he assisted me over to a couch and said just relax", she told the jury members. "I felt really humiliated".

Constand sounded believable. But there will be questions: Why did she continue to contact Cosby after the assault? "They're your friends. They'll take the edge off".

Ms Johnson is the only other accuser who will be permitted to testify. "Her self-esteem was really damaged".

"Why Camille is not here is something only Camille can comment on and she has chosen not to do so", Allred said. But parts of Cosby's deposition in that lawsuit, expected to be used by the prosecution against him at the trial, were released in the summer of 2015.

Cosby's lawyer, Angela Agrusa, focused not on the details of the alleged assault but on other aspects of Constand's narrative, including discrepancies in several police interviews Constand gave in 2005 when she made a decision to report the crime a year later.


When she awoke in the morning, Mr Cosby gave her tea and a muffin. Cosby's defense suggests that there is no correct response for a survivor of sexual violence.

"Mr. Cosby looked at me and said, 'I thought you had an orgasm, didn't you?' I said, 'I did not. He didn't want that", Sewell said. Prior to the start of proceedings, she approached the defense table, where Cosby rose and warmly greeted her. She made 53 calls to Cosby after the alleged assault, the lawyer said-why would she do that if he'd violated her?

"I was very concerned", she continued. "He was the biggest celebrity in the world at the time. So I went along with it". "It was just me".

The mother of a woman who accuses Bill Cosby of sex assault has recalled the day her daughter told her the entertainer had drugged her at a hotel. The former Cosby Show actor walked her to the door, the two kissed "cheek-to-cheek" and Constand returned to her room where she called supposed girlfriend Williams, Cosby's lawyer said. The agency reached a settlement with Johnson when she was dismissed after the alleged encounter, paying her about $10,000 for stress-related reasons, Miller said. Johnson struggled to explain them. Johnson testified that it happened in 1996. The prosecution hopes to bolster her credibility and convince the jury of a Cosby pattern. She met him when she ran operations for the women's basketball team at Philadelphia's Temple University (of which Cosby is an alumnus and donor) in 2002.

After a series of phone calls, Constand said Cosby began inviting her dinner at his house and other events, such as a jazz concert in NY.

Bill Cosby's former Cosby Show co-star, Keshia Knight Pulliam, 38, was seen walking with him and still remembers him as "America's Dad", despite his now tarnished reputation.

Still, the proceedings were not without a "Cosby Show" personality. Among the women in the courtroom was Victoria Valentino, an alleged victim who was wearing a pin that read "We Stand In Truth".
