Bill Cosby accuser's mother says he apologized

Cosby accuser denies framing comedian

Her mother followed her on the witness stand on Monday and was more feisty, often clashing with prosecutors and bristling when they asked her if she benefited from Andrea Constand's $3.4 million civil settlement with Cosby.

At one point, Gianna Constand said "Don't talk to me like that" to Bliss during questions about how much she knew about her daughter. He also questioned her about her various phone calls to Cosby in the days after she was assaulted and laid special stress on the fact she called Cosby twice on Valentine's Day.

The defense attempted to poke holes in Constand's allegations by questioning her about the almost 70 phone calls she made to Cosby after the alleged assault, her involvement in a "pyramid scheme" at Temple and her sexual assault and conflict-of-interest training as a university employee, among other things.

Cosby says his sexual encounter with Constand was consensual.

Cosby said he never took the drug, instead giving it to women he wanted to have sex with. She says he described their sexual encounter and apologized for his behavior. She said also that she had appeared on some episodes of the iconic "Cosby Show" in the early 1990s and noted that Cosby had always been respectful of her, but her outburst was to "show support to the women".

The 80-year-old comedian is charged with drugging and molesting Andrea Constand.

He ruled that five other alleged victims, including former supermodel Janice Dickinson, could testify in the retrial.

Theresa May grilled in United Kingdom parliament over Syria airstrikes
Despite describing the intervention as "successful", Britain's foreign minister said there were now no plans for further attacks. When pressed, however, he acknowledged that some unspecified portion of Assad's chemical arms infrastructure was not targeted.

She said Cosby told her he had given Andrea Constand a prescription drug - not the cold and allergy medicine Benadryl as he has claimed - but did not provide the name of it.

Andrea Constand withstood a defense cross-examination that sought to expose her as a con artist who set Cosby up, leaving the witness stand at his retrial without having budged off her allegation that he drugged and molested her at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004.

"The Cosby case elevated the challenge presented by statutes of limitations", said O'Connor. All of these allegations were denied by the survivor's mother.

Bill Cosby's chief accuser denies knowing or ever speaking with a woman who's expected to be a key witness for the defense.

His ruling will depend on whether Constand testified that she knew Jackson.

Judge Steven O'Neill ruled that prosecutors can have The Cosby Show star's deposition testimony read into the record.

The defense plans to call Jackson as a witness and says she will testify that before Constand lodged her allegations against Cosby in 2005, Constand had mused to Jackson about setting up a "high-profile person" and filing suit. During cross-examination, Constand struggled to remember why she'd sent them but said she was only trying to help out a friend.

Gianna Constand had some testy exchanges with Cosby attorney Kathleen Bliss during cross-examination. Constand said the call came as part of her professional duties with the Temple University women's basketball team.

On Monday, the defense tried to cast Constand as an opportunist who baited Cosby by feigning romantic interest in him.

"They said they'd drop the charges, if I don't come back to the courthouse", Rochelle could be overheard saying.

The judge in Bill Cosby's sexual assault retrial says he's seeing the courtroom clearly again after having emergency surgery over the weekend to fix a torn retina. He said waiting too long could've caused him to lose sight in the eye.

The television celebrity's offense concluded with the jury unable to reach a verdict.
