NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Andrea Constand told authorities that Bill Cosby violated her sexually after giving her three blue pills that made her dizzy, blurry-eyed and sick to her stomach, her legs "like jelly," according to a police report read in court Tuesday.
By Joseph Ax NORRISTOWN, Pa. (Reuters) - The only woman whose accusations of sexual assault resulted in criminal charges against Bill Cosby told police she was attacked as she lay on a sofa "paralyzed" by drugs the entertainer gave her, a former detective said at a court hearing on Tuesday. Reading from a transcript of Andrea Costand's interview with police in January 2005, the witness said Cosby told her the pills would help her relax and "take the edge off." So Constand, a former basketball coach at Cosby's Temple University alma mater, swallowed the pills, added a sip of wine and told the comedian that she trusted him, the former detective said.
