Cosby Accuser Andrea Constand Details Alleged Assault: ‘I Could Not Fight Him Off’
Bill Cosby’s main accuser Andrea Constand took the stand Friday, testifying that he gave her wine and three pills before he allegedly assaulted her.
“I wanted it to stop. I couldn’t say anything,” the former Temple University employee told the jury, according to CNN.
The comments came after the prosecution in Cosby’s sexual assault retrial asked her to describe what she allegedly went through at the hands of the actor at his Philadelphia home in 2004.
“Were you able to verbalize and tell him to stop?” Assistant District Attorney Kristen Feden asked, after Constand said she was knocked out from the three blue pills and was “jolted awake” to find Cosby allegedly assaulting her.
“No. I wanted it to stop,” Constand explained. “I couldn’t say anything. I was trying to get my hands to move, my legs to move. I was weak. I was limp and I could not fight him off.”
“I was really humiliated,” she added. “I was in shock. And I was really confused.”
Cosby’s defense team then cross-examined her, pointing out discrepancies between the initial police report she gave in 2005 and comments she made in 2006 in the deposition for her civil suit against Cosby for the alleged assault, according to Deadline.
Cosby is on trial, once again, facing three charges of aggravated indecent assault against the former Temple University employee.
Constand took the stand after five other women testified during the week, all painting similar pictures of alleged assaults by Cosby.
