Jury To Hear Bill Cosby's Testimony About Quaaludes, Sex

Jackson said Andrea Constand spoke of the plot while they were rooming together on a road trip to Rhode Island with the Temple University women's basketball team, where Constand was working as operations director.

Regan said, "I'm happy to answer that".

The Associated Press doesn't typically identify people who say they're victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand has done.

The appearance of Marguerite Jackson, a Temple University academic adviser, may be the defense's best opportunity to undercut the credibility of Andrea Constand, the former Temple women's basketball official who has accused Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting her in 2004.

Jackson, a 31-year employee at Temple who is also an unlicensed therapist at a drug rehabilitation facility, said she pressed Constand for more information.

The defense lawyer persisted turning to another celebrity memoir - O.J. Simpson's 2007 tell-all "If I Did It" and lobbing Regan yet another question that went unanswered: "Did you help O.J. Simpson hide money from the publication of that book?" I could quit my job. "And so I continue and I go into the area that is somewhere between permission and rejection. I could open up a business".

Cosby, 80, testified more than a dozen years ago as part of a civil lawsuit that Constand filed against him, and prosecutors won the right to introduce it at his sexual-assault retrial on charges he drugged and molested her at his suburban Philadelphia home. Gray-Young testified that all calls to the office would have gone through her first, and she never forwarded any calls from Cosby to Constand.

Prior to the current criminal proceedings, Constand sued Cosby over her accusations, eventually settling the suit for an amount that was revealed at the current retrial to be just under $3.4 million.

Cosby said he gave Constand 1½ tablets of the cold and allergy medicine Benadryl to help her relax, then fondled her breasts and genitals, according to the police transcript, which also was read to the jury on Tuesday.

Andrea Constand told jurors she doesn't "recall ever having a conversation with" Marguerite Jackson.

Starbucks to close thousands of stores for racial bias training
Greg Holston, executive director of POWER, said while he was encouraged about the training, Starbucks "has a lot more work to do". It is unknown if she will participate in the training as Starbucks keeps mum on claims that she already left the company.

Regan, who published Dickinson's memoir No Lifeguard on Duty, told prosecutor Stewart Ryan during direct examination that Regan Books spiked the story after consulting with its legal department.

The drug was banned in the USA in 1982, the same year one of the women who testified, Janice Baker-Kinney, alleges Cosby knocked her out with pills she suspected to be quaaludes and then raped her. But after her company's legal team evaluated the account, they would not allow it to be in the book. The jury which heard his first trial on these charges a year ago failed to reach a verdict.

Regan's testimony was part of a one-two punch from prosecutors Wednesday that also included a reading of Cosby's damaging deposition testimony related to Quaaludes. On the witness stand, though, the supermodel insisted that Cosby had invited her to Lake Tahoe where he offered her a pill and then raped her when she was powerless to resist.

Judge Steven O'Neill waited until Tuesday to rule that prosecutors could have the "Cosby Show" star's deposition testimony read into the record, handing the prosecution a key victory in its effort to portray the comedian as a serial predator.

Cosby's lawyers argued that the testimony is irrelevant to his retrial because there is no evidence he gave Constand the drug.

Jackson said the conversation happened February 1, 2004, a few weeks after Constand says Cosby drugged and molested her at his suburban Philadelphia home.

Jackson continued, "I said, 'Did this really happen to you?' and [Constand] said 'no, no it didn't". Jackson did not file any reports in 2004 when she said she shared a hotel room with Constand. The defendant said he was present.

He said Constand never told him to stop.

As the comedian arrived Wednesday morning, spokesman Andrew Wyatt blasted the testimony from Reape and a police sergeant Tuesday.

He says that prosecutors were using "tools of incompetence to build monuments of nothingness". Wyatt said Cosby's defense thinks the case should be dismissed.
