Bill Cosby on Call From Accuser’s Mother: ‘My God, I’m in Trouble’

Constand told police that Cosby gave her three blue pills, but none of the pills that Cosby supplied to police for forensic analysis in 2005 were blue.Proceedings ended the day before with the prosecution introducing the sworn testimonies Cosby gave in September 2005 and March 2006, after former District Attorney Bruce Castor Jr. ruled there was not enough evidence to continue pursuing a criminal trial. The defense starts its case Monday.Defense lawyers have been barred from discussing Constand’s on-again, off-again relationship with a woman around the time she accused Cosby of sexually assaulting her in 2004 at his home in Cheltenham. Rohrig, who serves on a national committee involved with drug-facilitated crime research, said the drug has been used to facilitate sexual assault.”It had more to do with business than it did with me personally”, she said.Asked why he didn’t simply tell the concerned mom that he gave her daughter an over-the-counter allergy medication, Cosby said he felt like he was being “attacked”. He raised his walking stick in acknowledgment. He then waved from the back of an SUV.The deposition came as part of Constand’s civil lawsuit, which was filed in 2005 soon after prosecutors declined to bring charges at the time. Reape didn’t work on this case until 2015, when previously sealed testimony was released by a federal judge in July. But Cosby, according to his testimony, said the doctor knew that he was not going to take them.”I’m thinking this is a dirty old man with a young girl”, Cosby said, according to a decade-old deposition read to jurors Friday by a police officer.A detective said Thursday the investigation was reopened just seven days after the deposition excerpts were unsealed.In the deposition, he recounted a telephone conversation he had with Constand’s mother. But there was something she wanted from him – something he was willing to give. It’s unclear whether Cosby’s compromised vision allows him to see either the audience or the jury, but his movements were noticeable, even more so than this morning when a detective read portions of a statement that seemed to have made him uncomfortable.”Very often victims don’t label what they go through as an assault”, said Valliere.”If it’s a well-known person, the victim takes on a lot of responsibility for that person’s reputation, especially if that person is well-liked or beloved”, Veronique Valliere testified. Although Valliere admitted to writing them, the judge ultimately refused the request for a dismissal.More than 50 women have said Cosby assaulted them, but the statute of limitations has run out in almost all cases.During a break Friday, Cosby’s spokesman dangled the possibility the comic might testify after all. “The case goes on”, under a Washington Post story about Cosby’s trial on Facebook.Testifying would carry enormous risk for Cosby, exposing him to cross-examination about some of the lurid things in his deposition.But for all those wondering where Cosby’s wife of more than 50 years has been, Camille reportedly plans to come to court next week. Constand has alleged that Cosby gave her drugs that left her unable to move or say no and then sexually assaulted her in his home in 2004. It’s unclear if he will take the witness stand.
