No easy verdict coming in Bill Cosby retrial — HASSAN

No easy verdict coming in Bill Cosby retrial — HASSAN

Numerous women who have accused Cosby likely would have filed their own lawsuits had it not been for the statute of limitations imposed on their particular cases. Instead, she admitted that she had not been assaulted but came up with a plan to say otherwise for the sake of money.

Janice Baker-Kinney testified against Bill Cosby at his sexual assault retrial on April 12, 2018, in Norristown, Pa.

She told jurors Thursday she was "rendered motionless" by the pill as Cosby got on top of her in his Lake Tahoe, California, hotel room. They each shared their run-ins with Cosby from the 1980s, all involving the comedian giving them drugs that rendered them either unconscious or unable to move while the comedian molested or raped them. She says Cosby assaulted her in Nevada 34 years ago. "And I remember thinking how wrong it was - how very, very wrong". "He's a figure that people respected for many years".

"I know the name", she said.

Dickinson, the only celebrity accuser to testify against Cosby, parried with defense attorneys who seized on discrepancies between her testimony Thursday and what she wrote about their encounter in her 2002 autobiography. "You're supposed to help me be successful". Why are you doing this to me?

Turning to Cosby, she made the remark that suggested he remembered the encounter.

"[Being topless] gets the message out there, and it gets a lot of attention", the 38-year-old, who appeared on four episodes of "The Cosby Show", told Fox News.

The women are the first of five accusers being called to publicly testify for the first time about Cosby's alleged sexual misconduct, in a bid by prosecutors to prove that the entertainer used an established pattern of behavior to drug and assault Andrea Constand in 2004.

"She's now a multimillionaire because she pulled it off", defense attorney Thomas Mesereau said of Constand, who won a $3.4 million settlement from Cosby in a civil lawsuit in 2006.

Bill Cosby's chief accuser is set to take the witness stand at his sexual assault retrial.

He called Constand a "con artist" who framed Cosby for a "jackpot".

When Kristen Feden, a prosecutor for the DA's Office asked, "Ms. Constand, why are you here?" she responded, "For justice".

However, the defence will no doubt insist that quantity of evidence is no substitute for quality of evidence, so no one should anticipate an easy verdict in this riveting case even this time.

'September': Taylor Swift Dragged for Countrified Cover of Earth, Wind & Fire Classic
Swift's participation in Spotify Singles stands in stark contrast to a position she took against Spotify years ago that the service and other streaming offerings would ultimately hurt the music business.

The former Temple University women's basketball executive says Cosby drugged and molested her in 2004, when he was a powerful trustee at the school.

He says that any contact between himself and his accusers was consensual. Thomas said Cosby gave her a glass of wine, and she took a sip and blacked out.

"It pisses me off that that's something I'm carrying forever", she said.

"I want to see a serial rapist convicted", Heidi Thomas stated emphatically at the end of cross examination from one of Cosby's lawyers.

"I was a good girl, and he took it all away from me". "For me it was very logical to believe the victims. But it's going to be with me forever".

"You're going to be wondering: What did she want from Bill Cosby?".

Cosby's legal team at his first trial wasn't almost as aggressive in attacking Constand, focusing instead on inconsistencies in her statements to police and arguing the pair had a romantic relationship.

"I hadn't told anybody anything", she testified Wednesday.

Constand testified that Cosby had made previous sexual advances, but she wasn't concerned about him.

Dickinson said she went along because she needed the money _ and feared Cosby would ruin her career.

She continued: "I put my hand on the Bible and I swore".

Under cross examination Wednesday, Thomas rejected a defense lawyer's insinuation that she would do anything to help Constand.

Last summer, two women interrupted Woody Allen and his New Orleans Jazz Band's concert in Germany and reportedly yelled, "Stop the culture of silence", highlighting allegations that Allen abused his daughter, Dylan Farrow, when she was a child.
