Witness testifies Constand lied about sexual assault with Cosby for money

Cosby's defense team, which has portrayed Constand as a money-hungry con artist, aimed to cast doubt on Constand's claims the pills left her so impaired she could not resist.

A drug expert will testify on Thursday concerning three blue pills Cosby gave Constand at his Cheltenham Township home in 2004. He denies the criminal charges. The case was settled for almost $3.4 million.

The Associated Press doesn't typically identify people who say they're victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand and Dickinson have done.

"You add that it's your memory now that Ms. Constand didn't report it because it was a high-profile person and because she couldn't prove it?"

"She had said it didn't happen", Jackson told the Montgomery Country court.

Judith Regan told jurors at Cosby's sexual assault retrial on Wednesday that Dickinson was upset the company's legal department wouldn't let them print such an explosive story without a corroborating witness.

Later, a fed-up Mesereau asked the officer if he himself was present in a hotel room with Constand and Cosby at the Foxwoods Resort Casino and Schaffer didn't miss a beat, joking, "Things would have gotten weird if that's what was going on".

The book contained a highly sanitized version of the encounter, with no sex at all. Her mother testified that Cosby told her in a January 2005 phone conversation that he'd have to look at a prescription bottle and would send the answer to her by mail.

Cosby was asked in the deposition.

Cosby made the damaging admission when he testified in 2005 as part of his chief accuser's civil lawsuit against him.

Cosby, in a 2005 deposition read to jurors by a police detective, said he obtained seven prescriptions for quaaludes from his doctor in Los Angeles in the 1970s, ostensibly for a sore back, but added he did not use them himself because they made him exhausted.

Rohrig said quaaludes - the 1970s-era party drug that Cosby has acknowledged giving to women before sex - also have a tendency to make people sleepy. The former university trustee is accused of drugging and sexually assaulting former Temple emplyee Andrea Constand in 2004. He says he gave her a cold and allergy medicine - not quaaludes - and that their encounter was consensual.

Bill Cosby has arrived at a suburban Philadelphia courthouse for the eighth day of his sexual assault retrial. The 80-year-old's first court case ended in a mistrial in June (2017), but prosecutors vowed to retry him.

He says that prosecutors were using "tools of incompetence to build monuments of nothingness".

The defense case will resume today.

A police sergeant testified Tuesday that a suburban Philadelphia prosecutor closed the original 2005 probe hours after investigators met to discuss leads that needed to be followed up.

Cosby said he gave out the pills "the same as a person would say, 'Have a drink, '" according to the deposition.

Constand is one of about 50 women who have accused him of assaults dating back decades. Prosecutor Stewart Ryan irked Cosby's lawyers during Jackson's cross-examination on Wednesday by repeatedly saying they "created" her affidavit.

In a transcript read to the jury Wednesday, the "Cosby Show" star said he obtained seven prescriptions for quaaludes from his doctor in Los Angeles in the 1970s, ostensibly for a sore back, but added he didn't use them himself because they made him exhausted.

Q: Why didn't you ever take the quaaludes?
