The stage was set for her testimony after prosecutors used the first day and a half of the trial to argue that Cosby made a habit of knocking women out with pills and then molesting them.

Their initial work contacts gradually became a friendship, with Ms Constand saying she thought of Mr Cosby as "somebody I trusted" and "a mentor".

Bill Cosby's defense team said Wednesday that accuser Andrea Constand had been alone with the comedian on numerous occasions before she accused him of a January 2004 assault, insinuating that the meet-ups were romantic in nature. They should probably get ready for disappointment, because new information shows her post-incident behavior to be so un-victimlike that she is simply not credible.

"She said she was unable to push him away or tell him to stop".

"They were good friends".

She is expected to serve as a key witness for prosecutors during the two-week trial. "I just wanted to go home", she said, according to NBC News. Cosby, a university trustee, followed the athletics department closely, she said. She said she had to do it for her job. Montgomery County detectives? Surely there wasn't enough time left in the day for Constand to be questioned by the prosecution and the defense. She told police that the next thing she knew, she was fading in and out of consciousness and that she woke up the next morning with her sweater bunched up around her and her bra undone.

Johnson didn't tell police about the encounter at the time because she wanted to avoid the shame and humiliation directed toward victims of sexual assault who go public, Sewell said.

The defense has pointed out that phone records show Constand called Cosby 53 times after she says he assaulted her. Constand told the jury the calls mostly involved the women's basketball team, especially around tournament time.

I'm one of Bill Cosby's accusers.

Andrea Constand is the former Temple University employee who claims that Bill Cosby drugged and assaulted her in 2004.

"I said, 'I trust you, '" she said. The room was dark. I don't want that. Cosby's lawyers wasted no time in continuing to besmirch Constand's character. "I felt really humiliated and I was really confused".

Agrusa also questioned why Constand allowed herself to be alone with Cosby after the comedian had made advances on two occasions - touching her thigh one time, and trying to open her trousers another time.

"I was jolted conscious, jolted awake, and I felt Mr. Cosby's hand groping my breasts, under my shirt", she recalled.
