Bill Cosby's Lawyer Calls Sex Assault Accuser a 'Con Artist'

Bill Cosby sexual assault retrial set to begin in Pennsylvania

Bill Cosby's retrial delayed by dispute over whether a juror said he's guilty

Cosby reportedly agreed to reveal the number for the first time during pretrial discussions, and the Montgomery County district attorney representing Constand, Kevin Steele, referred to the settlement in his opening statements on Monday.

The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand and Dickinson have done.

In an affidavit filed with the court by Cosby's legal team, Jackson, a former Temple University adviser, cast suspicion on Constand's motivations. Currently, Bill is facing three counts of aggravated indecent assault, with each charge carrying a maximum 10 year sentence.

In recent years, about 60 women have accused the Emmy-winning Cosby of being a serial predator, alleging that he drugged and assaulted them over a span of 40 years. Rochelle was charged with disorderly conduct and could face a fine, officials said.

"She's unconscious. She's out of it", Steele said.

Defense lawyers, who have argued in court papers that she has given three versions of her story, began cross-examining her late Tuesday. So, she made a decision to question her further.

Constand's possible financial motives played a role in Cosby's original trial, which ended with a hung jury last June.

The defense will also be likely to emphasize the fact that Constand maintained contact with Cosby even after the incident and question why it took her close to a year to report it to the police.

But those efforts went nowhere, Mesereau said, and Constand left Temple, returning to Canada broke and unemployed.

O'Neill had blocked the counselor, Marguerite "Margo" Jackson, from testifying at the first trial. "When someone is drugged, they don't have the ability to consent". More than 50 women have come forward to accuse Cosby, all before the explosion of #MeToo. He said Constand later awoke on Cosby's sofa feeling "violated".

Prosecutors will be able to seek testimony from up to five women who say Cosby drugged and assaulted them.

Rochelle told People she is not a Cosby accuser.

Bill Cosby's lawyer launched a blistering courtroom attack on the comedian's accuser Tuesday, portraying her as a con artist whose goal was "money, money and lots more money".

Nicolle Rochelle, 38, (aka Nicole Leach) wasn't afraid to bare all when she showed up topless to protest outside of the Montgomery County courthouse in Philadelphia, PA on April. 9, where Bill Cosby's sexual assault retrial was taking place.

The now frail and isolated 80-year-old Cosby could spend the rest of his life behind bars if convicted at his United States retrial of drugging and molesting Andrea Constand, 44, at his Philadelphia home in 2004.

The defense case will also have some major differences, starting with the lawyers.

"What did she want from Bill Cosby?".

Constand stiffed roommates on utility bills, racked up big credit card bills and operated a Ponzi scheme while running women's basketball operations at Temple, where Cosby was an alumnus and trustee, Mesereau said. Mesereau has injected an important piece of new evidence into the trial: the specifics of a $3,380,000 settlement that Constand received after suing Cosby in the mid-2000s.

"Regardless of whether I had been on the show or not, I would have been there today protesting on behalf of Femen and for the rights of women worldwide", she said.

Rochelle tells CBS3's Chantee Lans that if her actions touched just one woman it was all worth it.

The retrial got off to a headline-grabbing start when a topless protester jumped over the barrier and ran toward the comedian, before being tussled into the bushes by security and taken into custody.

Mesereau told the jury that Constand once confided to Jackson that she had been sexually assaulted by a powerful person, but when challenged Constand admitted she hadn't been assaulted. "We'll prove it. A con artist".
