Cosby at courthouse for 4th day of retrial

Cosby at courthouse for 4th day of retrial

And she'll tell you she remembers waking up on this sofa with her clothes disheveled at 4 o'clock in the morning.

She jumped over a crowd barrier outside the courthouse and yelled "Women's lives matter" before being wrestled to the ground by courthouse deputies about 10 yards in front of Cosby as he walked toward the building's front doors. However, she still couldn't move.

Andrea Constand, 44, has accused Cosby of drugging and molesting her in 2014 at his home near here after establishing a mentor relationship with her.

Prosecutors have lined up a parade of five additional accusers to make the case that the man revered as "America's Dad" lived a double life as one of Hollywood's biggest predators. She stiffed friends who put her up when she needed a place to stay and was forever complaining about her financial problems, Mesereau said.

Model Janice Dickinson is telling a jury that Bill Cosby raped her after giving her a pill he claimed would help her with menstrual cramps.

She told jurors she wanted to include details about the assault, but Cosby and his lawyers pressured her to tell a highly sanitized version in which there was no sex at all, let alone a rape.

In Tahoe, 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.

Earlier, Judge Steven O'Neill said he would permit the jury to hear about Lasha's criminal record so they can fully assess her credibility.

One of Cosby's lawyers asked for a mistrial Wednesday after Chelan Lasha said, "You remember, don't you Mr. Cosby?".

Asked how Cosby was holding up, Wyatt said, "Mr. Cosby's great". The 80-year-old comedian is charged with drugging and molesting a woman in 2004. The defense attorneys are once again expected to argue that the encounter was consensual.

Cosby said he gave the Canadian an over-the-counter antihistamine to relieve stress.

Rochelle, 38, of Little Falls, N.J., had written on her torso the names of some of the many women who have accused Cosby of assault.

Cosby, the lawyer said, "made the awful mistake of confiding in this person what was going on in his life".

Hulu, Spotify team up to offer bundle package
Those with existing Hulu Limited Commercials subscriptions are required to switch billing to Spotify in order to enjoy the offer. The device would be covered in the subscription as long as users committed to a 12-month term with the streaming platform.

The judge denied the motion, but warned Lasha against similar comments, and told the jury to ignore what she'd said.

Cosby lawyer is set to deliver his opening statement on Tuesday.

The former model and aspiring actress is one of five additional accusers who are being allowed to testify in the retrial. Farrell has represented several women who say they were sexually assaulted by Cosby after being referred to him by the agency. The defense plans to call Jackson as a witness, and Mesereau said she will testify that Constand - inspired by a story they saw on the news - mused about setting up a celebrity so she could sue and get money. Thomas admitted she sent the message and wanted to help Constand.

Thomas is rejecting a defense lawyer's suggestion she was seeking a share of the spotlight and trying to profit off her experiences.

"These women proved that they were here to back up their sister - they got their sister's back", Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt said outside court Thursday.

Heidi Thomas arrives to testify against Bill Cosby at his sex-assault retrial in Norristown, Pa., on April 11, 2018. She was a member of a European feminist group known for staging topless protests and appeared as a child on "The Cosby Show".

Under cross-examination, Cosby defense attorney Kathleen Bliss sought to poke holes in Thomas' account by citing a media interview in which she said Cosby was "mounting her".

Women who say comedian Bill Cosby knocked them out with intoxicants and sexually assaulted them decades ago are finally getting a chance to confront him - and they aren't holding back.

The first of the five women, Heidi Thomas, returns to the witness stand on Wednesday.

Under cross-examination, she told jurors that numerous more than a dozen interviews she gave after going public stemmed from her work to extend the statute of limitations for sex crimes.

The defense has dismissed the other women's testimony as "prosecution by distraction".

That picture of Constand is critical to the defense strategy laid out by Mesereau, who replaced Brian McMonagle, a prominent Philadelphia defense lawyer who withdrew from the case after the mistrial without explaining why.

The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand and the other women have done.
