Andrea Constand Wiki: 5 Facts to Know about Bill Cosby's Accuser

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.

After they took effect she became aware that Mr Cosby's hands were on her body but could not move, she told the entertainer's sexual assault trial in Pennsylvania today.

Comedian Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial started on Monday in Norristown, Pennsylvania.

Bill Cosby arrives for his sexual assault trial at the Montgomery County Courthouse.

WHAT'S NEXT: Defense lawyers will continue their cross-examination of Constand on Wednesday.

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

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

Agrusa noted that Constand and Cosby exchanged numerous gifts, and that the comedian gave her cashmere sweaters, perfume and a $225 hair dryer.

"I'm not here for that", she recalled telling him. "I said, 'I trust you.' I took the pills, and I swallowed the pills down". In court on Tuesday, Constand said she had been alone with Cosby before the incident. They also indicated she called lawyers specializing in civil litigation before reporting the alleged assault to police.

When asked why she continued to meet with Cosby after the incident, Constand replied, "I wasn't scared of somebody making a pass at me".

Cosby, sitting across the courtroom, shook his head as Constand described an encounter at his Philadelphia-area home in 2004, after she accepted three blue pills that he promised would help her "relax".

The reason for the wait is to see what potential policies an NCAA transfer working group recommends on the issue. An approved rule change at SEC spring meetings could mean a Texas quarterback target is headed to Florida.

Constand was calm, direct and polite under cross-examination, even when Agrusa's questioning grew pointed and accusatory. She later amended that account to sometime between mid-January and mid-February 2004, while on Tuesday she said it took place in early January.

"I felt that if I had gone to police, Mr. Cosby would retaliate and try to hurt me, that he would try to hurt me and my family in some way", Constand said. Both times, Constand said, she made it clear she didn't welcome the behavior.

Agrusa asked why there were slight differences between separate statements she gave to cops. So far, more than 50 women have come forward to accuse the former Cosby Show actor of drugging and sexually assaulting them. Therese Serignese, one of dozens who've alleged Cosby molested them decades ago, walks outside the courtroom during lunch break at Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial at the Montgomery County Courthouse on Tuesd.

Los Angeles lawyer Angela Agrusa spent a painstaking hour going over Andrea Constand's old phone records.

"Put them down. They're your friends".

"I don't condone sexual assault in any way, shape or form, but, at the end of the day, our court system is set up ... you're innocent until proven guilty..." she said.

"I was mistaken", Constand testified.

When she asked if they were herbal, he nodded, she told jurors.

But Constand says she never got the records from Temple University for the work-issued phone.

Constand's testimony is central to the case against the star of "The Cosby Show", one of the most popular shows in the history of television. His own words in the deposition were cited as new evidence by District Attorney Kevin Steele in charging him, a few weeks before the state's statute of limitations would expire.
