Bill Cosby Trial Day 2: Accuser Andrea Constand Takes the Stand

Former Temple University employee testifies that comedian gave her pills and placed her hand on his penis during 2004 incident

The second day of Bill Cosby’s sexual assault trial saw his accuser, former Temple University employee Andrea Constand, take the stand and testify that the scandal-plagued comedian drugged and assaulted her in his Pennsylvania home in 2004.

Constand, 44, told the court that, when she went to Cosby’s home to discuss her career, the comedian, who was serving as her mentor, gave her three pills an told her, “It’s time for you to relax,” USA Today reports.

The former Temple University employee told the court that, after taking the pills, her legs became “rubbery,” adding, “I don’t really remember passing out.”

Later, Constand testified, Cosby groped her breast, and placed her hand on his penis. Constand told the court that she wanted to stop Cosby, but was “frozen.”

Constand also testified that the comedian had touched her inappropriately prior to that night, telling the court that he “commented on my pants and touched the side of my waist and took his hand and attempted to unbutton my button .. When I felt that, I leaned forward and he took his hand away…’I said I’m not here for that, I don’t want that.'”

Asked why she visited Cosby again after that initial incident, Constand replied, “I wasn’t scared of someone making a pass at me or an advance at me.”

Cosby, who’s been charged with three counts of aggravated indecent stemming from his alleged conduct with Constand, has been accused by dozens of women, many of whom claim that he drugged and sexually assaulted them, though this is the only criminal case that the comedian faces.
