Witness in Bill Cosby trial describes 1996 drugging, sexual abuse UPI News Current. (June 6, 2017): Copyright: COPYRIGHT 2017 United Press International http://www.upi.com/ Full Text: Byline: ANDREW V. PESTANO Dec. 31 (UPI) -- The prosecution's first witness in the Bill Cosby sexual assault trial wept while on the stand as she described a 1996 incident in which she said she felt intimidated after the entertainer drugged and abused her. Kelly Johnson, the so-called "prior bad act" witness who prosecutors hope will show a pattern of behavior by Cosby, worked as an assistant to Cosby's agent in the 1990s. He is on trial for the alleged abuse of Andrea Constand. While on the stand, she said Cosby gave her a pill after asking her to visit him at his bungalow at Los Angeles' Hotel Bel-Air. Johnson said Cosby invited her in a "Dr. Huxtable kind of way" to offer career advice, but while she was there, Cosby wore a bathrobe and urged her to take a white pill to relax. Johnson, who was 34 at the time, said she did not want to take the pill and hid it under her tongue, but she swallowed when Cosby ordered her to open her mouth. She said she did what Cosby said because he was the biggest client in the agency she worked for. Moments later, Johnson said she began to lose her senses. Johnson said she later awoke in bed, mostly undressed while Cosby was abusing her. "I remember wanting to cover myself and not being able to," Johnson said through tears in the Philadelphia suburb of Norristown, where the trial is taking place at the Montgomery County Courthouse. Cosby's defense lawyer Brian McMonagle said Johnson simply rejected Cosby's request for sex during a visit to the bungalow and suggested Johnson was "dating" Cosby and that she took his money, which Johnson denied. Cosby faces charges that he drugged and assaulted Constand, a former Temple University employee. Cosby, 79, is charged with three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault from a 2004 case involving Constand, formerly the women's basketball team manager at his alma mater. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges. Cosby is accused of assaulting Constand while at his Philadelphia home. He faces a 10-year prison term if convicted. Depositions regarding the 2004 incident were unsealed in 2015, which prompted more accusers to step forward. So far, more than 50 women have come forward to accuse the former Cosby Show actor of drugging and sexually assaulting them. Some came forward after the statute of limitations expired for their cases. Cosby's defense team argues that Constand and prosecutors are misrepresenting what occurred that day and that the sexual activity was consensual, which Constand and prosecutors reject. "This case is about trust, betrayal and the inability to consent," prosecutor Kristen Feden said during opening statements. By ANDREW V.

Gale Document Number: GALE|A494512456 Jurors enter second day of deliberations in Bill Cosby trial (June 13, 2017): Copyright: COPYRIGHT 2017 United Press International http://www.upi.com/ Byline: ANDREW V. PESTANO Dec. 31 (UPI) -- The sequestered jurors in Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial entered their second day of deliberations Tuesday to decide whether the entertainer is guilty of drugging and abusing his accuser, Andrea Constand. The twelve jurors -- seven men and five women from the Pittsburgh area -- deliberated for 4 hours on Monday and did not come up with a verdict. The jurors will reconvene Tuesday morning to decide if Cosby is guilty of three counts of of aggravated indecent assault. Cosby faces charges that he drugged and assaulted Constand, a former Temple University employee, at his Philadelphia home in 2004. Constand was the women's basketball team manager at Cosby's alma mater. Cosby's defense team argued that Constand and prosecutors are misrepresenting what occurred that day and that the sexual activity was consensual, which Constand and prosecutors reject. Brian McMonagle, one of Cosby's lawyers, told the jury that Cosby, who was married, and Constand were lovers who enjoyed secret "romantic interludes," which McMonagle characterized as consensual adultery but not a crime. McMonagle suggested to jurors that Cosby was the victim of accusations by women who wanted to appear on television shows. "You know why we're here," McMonagle said, gesturing to two Cosby accusers in the trial audience. "Let's be real." Prosecutors suggested Cosby's own admission about groping Constant after giving her pills he knew would make her fall asleep should be enough to declare him guilty. "All the fancy lawyering you have can't get you around your own words," District Attorney Kevin Steele said. "Drugging somebody and putting them in a position where you can do what you want with them is not romantic. It's criminal." Depositions regarding the 2004 incident were unsealed in 2015, which prompted more accusers to step forward. More than 50 women have come forward to accuse the former Cosby Show actor of drugging and sexually assaulting them. Some came forward after the statute of limitations expired for their cases. Jurors heard the deposition. "I have three friends for you to make you relax," Cosby said he told Constand during the 2004 incident, according to a transcript of the deposition. By ANDREW V.
