Per Maria Bustillos, during a brief recess at the Norristown, Pennsylvania, courthouse on day two of the Bill Cosby sex assault trial: Plaintiff Andrea Constand took the stand Tuesday (June 6) and gave her first public testimony of the night in January 2004 when she was allegedly drugged and sexually assaulted by Cosby.
Cosby’s legal team questioned the 44-year-old former Temple University employee about the alleged phone calls she made to the comic after their encounter, calls she characterized as business-related, but nevertheless the defense made the point to emphasize that, of the alleged 72 phone calls that were made, she had called him 53 times.
Constand had continued speaking to Cosby on the phone and met him in person at least once more, she said, out of fear of what would happen to her career.
