Andrea Constand takes the stand.
As you know, Bill Cosby is currently being retried for over three counts of sexual assault in 2004, and on Friday, his main accuser got the opportunity to testify about allegedly being drugged and molested at the comedian’s mansion outside of Philadelphia.
When asked by prosecutor Kristen Feden why she was present for the retrial, the massage therapist said simply:
Constand recalled being invited over to Cosby’s house back in 2004 when she was managing the women’s basketball team at Temple University. While there, she says she was offered three blue pills, which he called “your friends. They’ll help take the edge off.”
Because of the trust she had formed with the celeb, she complied:
“I trusted him. So I took them.”
Shortly after, she started having double vision before passing out on the sofa:
“I looked at Mr Cosby, and I said: ‘I see two of you.'”
The next thing Constand remembers is waking up to Cosby assaulting her:
“I felt Mr Cosby on the couch behind me, and my vagina was being penetrated quite forcefully, and I felt my breasts being touched.”
She also says Cosby forced her hand on his penis, but she was unable to move:
“I was not able to do a thing to fight back. I wanted it to stop.”
It’s the same disturbing story that so many accusers have shared. Hopefully Andrea will get what she’s there for: justice.
