Alleged victim's mother: Cosby said he was a 'sick man'

Alleged victim's mother: Cosby said he was a 'sick man'

He's denied attacking the former Temple University employee in his home outside of Philadelphia, claiming they had a consensual sexual relationship. Afterward, Constand said she felt "humiliated and confused" and "just wanted to go home", but doesn't remember the details of the morning after the alleged assault before she left Cosby's home.

"I trusted him" said Constand during her testimony. "In my head I was trying to get my hands to move or my legs to move, but I was frozen", Constand said.

"I don't know what that means", Ms Constand said.

Constand testified that Cosby gave her three blue pills to help her relax during a 2004 visit to his Pennsylvania home. "They're your friends; they'll take the edge off".

She said Cosby then penetrated her with his hand and also placed her hand on his penis and moved it back and forth.

Constand confirmed this was true, but said that at the time she made the claim, she had been trying to access her phone records from Temple University, her employer, to pin down when the alleged assault occurred. Constand, whose testimony marked the first time she had spoken publicly about the incident, claimed she tried to stop Cosby from violating her body, but she found herself incapacitated, reports Prosecutors opened their case on Monday by calling another woman, Kelly Johnson, to the stand to show that the TV star made a habit of giving women pills to knock them out and then molesting them.

Cosby, for years feted by millions as "America's Dad" for his role as a lovable obstetrician and father on "The Cosby Show", says he is now legally blind.

Andrea Constand brushed aside pointed verbal jabs from fallen funnyman Bill Cosby's high-priced legal eagles during the third day of his sex assault trial Wednesday.

"I was jolted conscious, jolted awake, and I felt Mr. Cosby's hand groping my breasts, under my shirt", a visibly upset Constand said. "I can only go based on who I've experienced, and at the end of the day, it's the court's job to find the truth of the matter". "A mentor", she said.

"She changed considerably", Ms Sewell said in court on Tuesday in Norristown, a suburb of Philadelphia, where the trial is taking place.

She says Cosby became more flirtatious and suggestive over time, once grabbing her thigh and later attempting to unbutton her trousers. I also felt his hand inside my vagina moving in and out.

But Constand told prosecutor Kristen Faden she was so out of it she couldn't tell the Fat Albert creator to stop.

"The room was dark, and there was a nice mood in the room, correct?" she said. But the defense emphasized inconsistencies between Constand's testimony and in accounts she gave to police a decade ago, including how she first met the actor. Cosby's defense suggests that there is no correct response for a survivor of sexual violence.

Ms Johnson, who worked for a talent agency representing Mr Cosby, alleges she woke up partially clothed in the comedian's bed with him behind her, grunting, before he forced her to touch his genitals.

The AP does not typically identify people who say they are sexual assault victims unless they grant permission, which Constand and Johnson have done.
