>> Bill Cosby's lawyers, Wednesday, trying to poke holes in Andrea Constand's account of being drugged and sexually assaulted by the comedian more than ten years ago. Reuters legal correspondent, Joseph Ax.>> Bill Cosby's lawyers sharply questioned his accuser, Andrea Constand, on the witness stand today under cross-examination. Asking her why she continually called Cosby over and over, including on Valentine's Day, just weeks after the alleged sexual assault she said occurred at his house in January 2004.
Constand remained calm, answering questions, did not appear emotional. She had previously testified at trial that she maintained contact with Cosby in part because of her job at Temple University. Saying she felt it was her obligation to keep talking to him because of his involvement with the athletic department at the school.
>> Constand telling the court Tuesday Cosby gave her pills before sexually assaulting her on his couch, leaving her frozen and unable to resist. Constand settled a civil lawsuit with Cosby in 2006 for an undisclosed sum. She's one of dozens of women to come forward with accusations Cosby sexually assaulted them after he gave them pills.
Cosby has pleaded not guilty and is not expected to testify. Though prosecutors plan on using his own words against him from a related deposition where the entertainer has admitted to giving sedatives to women he wanted to have sex with.
