3 accusers confront Cosby; one calls him a 'serial rapist'

The entrance of Bill Cosby was delayed when a topless protester jumped a barrier and ran toward him

To attack Constand's credibility, Cosby's lawyers are expected to call a woman to the stand who claims she roomed with Constand on a Temple basketball trip. Cosby paid her $3.4 million in a 2006 civil settlement.

Constand said in court she was scared to tell anyone about the incident out of fear of retaliation until nearly a year later, when she told her mother.

Cosby "was lonely and troubled", Mesereau said, when he met Constand in the early 2000s through her work as the director of operations for the women's basketball team at Temple University, where the entertainer sat on the board of trustees and served as the unofficial public face of the institution.

The defence has urged jurors to ignore the other accusers, calling their allegations irrelevant to the charges involving Constand, who turned 45 on Wednesday. Her bra was around her neck, she said, and her trousers were undone.

But despite Cosby's attempts to silence her, she took the stand last summer. "I felt my breasts being touched".

"I'd love to see if he thinks he's going to prove any of this", Troiani told The Associated Press.

When Jackson pushed her to report it, Constand admitted that it was a lie.

Last year, Jackson claimed Constand told her she planned to concoct the twisted scheme, though she was barred from testifying at trial by Judge Steven O'Neill. "He asked me to come upstairs and said that he had some baked goods for me".

Mesereau has indicated he intends to use the settlement to argue that Constand falsely accused Cosby in hopes of landing a big payoff.

She told the jury she was physically fit at the time and felt confident she could handle him if he ever tried anything more.

Of the more than 60 women who accused the once-beloved comic of drugging, raping, and abusing them, Constand had the only case for which the statute of limitations had not run out, which left her battling in a Pennsylvania courtroom not only for herself but on behalf of all of his accusers.

This trial follows the rise of the #MeToo movement in which women have come forth to accuse prominent men in politics, business and entertainment of sexual harassment and assault dating back years. She said she was flown to Reno and driven to a home, where she found Cosby alone.

Wyatt said the women traded in "poetic licensing, better known as alternative facts" and were pawns in an "Ocean's 11-style script" cooked up by lawyers Gloria Allred and her daughter, Lisa Bloom, "to extort Mr. Cosby for $100 million". Cosby tracked her down to Bali, where she was modeling for an oil company calendar, and asked her to Lake Tahoe "to further talk about my career".

The 80-year-old star has since pleaded not guilty to three charges of aggravated indecent assault. "So he gets to say whatever he wants and once again they go outside, they slander her outside of the courtroom and what is her recourse?"

Cosby has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing and said that any sexual encounters he had were consensual. She told the jury on Friday, "I was really humiliated".

She recalled feeling Cosby's "fingers going in and out very forcefully".

Lasha had a cold that day, she said, and after a photographer took pictures of her Cosby offered her what he said was an antihistamine with a shot of amaretto. "Gave me three blue pills and sexually violated me without my consent".

She told jurors she wanted to include details about the assault, but wound up telling a highly sanitized version in which there was no sex at all, let alone a rape, because her publisher told her the legal department would never let the allegations against Cosby make it to print. She said Cosby helped her lie down on a couch.

Constand testified she was deeply disappointed when then-Montgomery County District Attorney Bruce Castor declined to criminally charge Cosby after she complained to authorities in 2005.
