Andrea Constand Is Taking The Stand In Cosby Trial Today
The accuser who solely has the power to take down Bill Cosby is taking the trial today, Andrew Constand.
In Bill’s original trial last year, Andrea claimed he drugged her, then attacked her. In this retrial, he is charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault for the 2004 incident.
As Page Six reports, Andrea was an administrator for the Temple University women’s basketball team at the time. She recounted last June during Cosby’s first trial — which ended in a hung jury — how her “mentor” offered her what he said was an herbal pill to relieve stress, but which instead left her “frozen” and drifting in and out of consciousness.
“I was jolted conscious, jolted awake, and I felt Mr. Cosby’s hand groping my breasts, under my shirt,” she told the court. “I felt his hand inside my vagina, moving in and out. And I felt him take my hand, place it on his penis and move it back and forth.”
A $3.4 million settlement was paid in 2006, after she filed a civil suit against him.
