Bill Cosby's chief accuser alleges drugging, assault

Share

One other accuser, Janice Baker-Kinney, returned to the witness stand after punctuating the primary two hours of her testimony at Cosby's sexual assault retrial in suburban Philadelphia with a agency declaration: "I used to be raped".

Cosby, who played the lovable patriarch and "America's Dad" on The Cosby Show, is standing for his second criminal trial on allegations of drugging and sexually assaulting former friend and colleague Andrea Constand, 45, in 2004.

On the fourth day of Bill Cosby's retrial, Janice Dickinson took the stand to testify against the comedian. "And I remember thinking how wrong it was ― how very, very wrong".

When he held up her book and revealed the account in there was very different to what she is saying in court, Dickinson admitted that the contents of the book was a fabrication: "It's all a fabrication there because I wanted the paycheck for my kids, ' she said, after telling the court that she'd given her ghostwriter "poetic licence".

The Associated Press doesn't typically identify people who say they're victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Dickinson has done.

Defense attorneys noted that there were differences between her testimony and what she wrote about in her 2002 biography.

Dickinson said she was sitting on the edge of the hotel bed at the time.

"He stayed with me throughout the entire pregnancy", she said. Cosby then assaulted her, touching her breast and rubbing himself against her leg, Lasha said. Asked why she had nonetheless continued the mentor-friendship, Constand called it slightly "absurd". And you weren't there!

"I had been", she explained.

Mesereau read passage after passage from the supermodel's books "No Lifeguard On Duty", "Everything About Me Is Fake and I'm Perfect" and "Check Please: Dating, Mating, and Extricating", which detailed extensive drug use and a wild lifestyle that played out in 1970s New York City.

Many memoir writers embellish stories and leave out aspects they don't want to share.

Cosby's attorneys said again that they believe that Constand found a way to extort money from their client, and they believed the other women were regretful about a consensual affair with a married man.

Actor and comedian Bill Cosby returns to the courtroom after lunch recess during the third day of the retrial of his sexual assault case at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pennsylvania on April 11, 2018. "I hadn't said yes". "I couldn't get words out I wanted to say".

Janice Dickinson informed jurors Invoice Cosby raped her in 1982.

Cosby says Constand consented to their sexual encounter.

Wearing a white blazer and coral top, the former basketball player sat erect in the witness box, calmly responding to questions from the prosecution but became more nervous under cross-examination from the defense. Cosby tracked her down to Bali, where she was modeling for an oil company calendar, and asked her to Lake Tahoe "to further talk about my career".

"That wasn't cool", she told him.

"He raped me in Tahoe", Dickinson added.

Could this be the day he breaks through and wins a non-restrictor plate race? Kyle Busch had similar issues and finished 38th. Jones won at Bristol in 2016 and 2017 in the Xfinity Series, so he certainly knows his way around the half-mile track .

Once at the hotel, she said she tested out her vocal range with Cosby's musical director, watched Cosby perform and then joined the two men for dinner at the hotel.

It's expected to resume on Thursday afternoon.

Constand visited Cosby's home six times, as well as drove to CT to see him at a hotel and twice met him in NY, never once seeing his wife and seemingly never questioning her whereabouts.

The trial is over three counts of sexual assault against Andrea Constand in 2004, but it's giving women whose accusations are past the statute of limitations the chance to tell their stories. She testified that she barely remembered it. The next day, she said, she tried to confront Cosby at an estate owned by the owner of Harrah's casino.

This time she's facing a defense team intent on portraying her as a "con artist" who framed him and scored a $3.4 million civil settlement. "And I just wanted to go home".

"He was gross", she testified.

She said she was "very scared" about going to police because "he was a Temple trustee".

During cross-examination Friday, Cosby lawyer Tom Mesereau followed the same playbook as the star's first defence team by seeking to exploit inconsistencies in Constand's various accounts.
