Bill Cosby Goes on Trial for Sex Assault

Bill Cosby Goes on Trial for Sex Assault

Kelly Johnson, an alleged victim of Bill Cosby testified at the actor's trial for sexual assault on Monday.

Dozens of women have now come forward claiming the comedian drugged and sexually assaulted them as well.

Agrusa also attempted to portray earlier encounters between Constand and Cosby as romantic, including a private dinner on his couch in front of a fire, with incense burning in the room.

Cosby has pleaded not guilty to the charges, insisting their sexual contact was consensual, and has denied similar allegations from 60 women. "I wasn't able to fight in any way".

Nearly 13 years after Andrea Constand's assault, this is the first time she is publicly telling her side of the story. Another time, she said, he placed his hand on her thigh. "I felt really humiliated and I was really confused".

Rout by Macron's party in French parliamentary election vote
Ultra-leftist Jean-Luc Melenchon, who Macron also defeated in the presidential vote, said he won in his Marseille district. REM won 32 percent of the votes cast in the first round, but this represented only about 15 percent of registered voters.

"I'm not here for that".

"I was mistaken", said Constand, 44, now a massage therapist in Toronto.

Constand said that when she later called Cosby to ask why he had given her the pills he replied: "I thought you had an orgasm, didn't you?"

She hopes to show Constand changed her mind about the date of the alleged 2004 assault after reviewing them.

Twenty minutes later, Constand said, she slurred her words, had trouble seeing, her mouth felt cottony, and she had trouble walking. "He was a trustee, he was an alumni there".

"I wasn't able to", Constand said.

Miller, who represented William Morris in the case, said Johnson was tearful as she described waking up on a bed with her dress pulled down and her breast exposed - details that matched the story Johnson told on the stand.

Thomas lights up Erin Hills
Take it from no less an authority than Justin Thomas , who shot 63 and became the first ever to shoot 9 under par in a U.S. Rickie Fowler is confident of "getting the job done" after resurrecting his hopes of a maiden major at the US Open today.

Constand said it took her a year to go to police because she felt intimidated. He was instead joined by a TV daughter, Keshia Knight Pulliam, who was five when he made her a child star on the "The Cosby Show".

Constand did file a lawsuit in 2005 shortly after prosecutors initially decided not to bring a case against Cosby. Atchison's client roster includes Cosby and his wife, Camille.

The defence, however, tried to poke holes in Ms Johnson's story, asking why she had previously said under oath that the assault occurred in 1991, not 1996. The case's outcome will likely hinge on whether the jury believes her account, as Cosby himself does not plan to testify.

Cosby whispered to his lawyers and shook his head during her testimony.

But when she did an in-person interview with Cheltenham detectives three days later, she told them it happened "between mid January and mid February 2004" at Cosby's home, and the pair had not gone out to dinner with others beforehand, Constand confirmed on the stand. Cosby told her the pills would help her relax, take the edge off.

Some 60 women have come forward to say Cosby sexually violated them, all but destroying his nice-guy image on screen and off, but the statute of limitations for prosecution had run out in almost every case.

Constand's complaint is the only one that has come to trial. "Somebody I trusted. A mentor".

She asked what they were and whether or not they were herbal and she said Cosby told her, "Put them down".
