She was on the stand for seven hours.
Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele pinched the bridge of his nose and stared at the table as Constand gave the response. Later, she would testify that the assault happened before this, and that 16 March was the night she had planned to confront Cosby about it.
The then-30-year-old director of women's basketball at Temple University - where Cosby was serving on the board of trustees - said she had asked the television star if the pills were herbal and he indicated that they were.
" 'The lights were dim and the fire was going, ' the lawyer continued".
She managed the women's basketball team at Temple while he was a high-profile trustee. She left the courtroom, expressing bafflement because she thought the phone was off, but was allowed back in after a break.
She says Cosby became more flirtatious and suggestive over time, once grabbing her thigh and later attempting to unbutton her trousers.
Initially, Constand told police that she did not contact Cosby after the alleged assault, but phone records proved that she had been in contact with Cosby over the phone, the Inquirer reported.
"I don't really remember how dim the lights were, but I did have to eat my dinner", she replied.
Feden said that Constand viewed Cosby as a trusted mentor and said that the case would be defined by, "trust, betrayal and the inability to consent". Though her cross-examination was scattered and slow, and, all things considered, probably easier than it might have been, Constand has nonetheless been a remarkable example of what it takes to stand up to the essential difficulty of this dynamic, in which an alleged victim, after being forced to participate in a sexual encounter, is implicated by the fact that the sexual encounter occurred. Yesterday [May 6th], she told the court that she first had a friendship with Cosby working within Temple University's athletics department.
"Mr. Cosby never disclosed to me that he was interested in a romantic interaction with me", she said.
The situations became questionable when it was clear that Constand would return to his home after denying his attempts.
"She was having a lot of nightmares", her mother said. The mother held the courtroom audience rapt as she recounted 2½ hours of unrecorded phone calls with Cosby in January 2005, shortly after she'd learned of her daughter's allegations about an incident at the comedian's suburban Philadelphia home the year before.
"Put them down. They're your friends". The defense questioning focused on the jumbled set of details she related to police in interviews.
"I wanted it to stop", 44-year-old Ms Constand said on the second day of the trial in Norristown, Pennsylvania about the evening in question.
Constand also testified that the comedian had touched her inappropriately prior to that night, telling the court that he "commented on my trousers and touched the side of my waist and took his hand and attempted to unbutton my button..."
At one point, with her daughter also on the line, she said, Cosby described the incident.
I said Andrea will need therapy, I'm sure she will need therapy from this.
"He was sorry for what he did", Constand insisted.
Lili Bernard, a former Cosby Show actress who has also accused Cosby of sexual assault, showed up in court in support of Constand. When Cosby was being deposed for the civil case with Constand in 2005, he testified that he only learned Constand was gay when police informed him that year.
