Detective: DA ended Cosby probe as police were working case

Detective: DA ended Cosby probe as police were working case

"I never meant to have sexual intercourse, like naked bodies, with Andrea".

"We began to pet". "I stop. It wasn't hostile, she didn't push me out of the way, she said "Stop". "And I think the overriding thing was that she seemed like she wanted to get her whole story out".

However, he said, he chose to first develop a friendship with her that later developed into a mentor-protégé relationship, with Constand visiting his home, at his request, to chat about Temple and a possible career in sports broadcasting.

Cosby denied to the cop that he ever took Viagra - and said he didn't like intercourse. He said they did not have intercourse.

Bill Cosby's description of the 2004 night Andrea Constand says he drugged and sexually assaulted her first began seeping out in court records almost two years ago, was endlessly picked apart in news accounts and ultimately cited as a reason for his arrest.

"There is a certain area with a woman where if, she doesn't want, she will stop you there and that is right around the hair line, the pubic line, and I am moving my fingers gently". So, Cosby, said, he gave her one-and-a-half Benadryl tablets, broken into three pieces, and told Constand, "I have three friends for you to make you relax". We are petting. I enjoyed it. After taking the pills, her legs became "rubbery". He told the investigators that it was Benadryl and that he used the pills to help himself sleep while on the road, and he apparently even took "several bottles of pills" out of his luggage while being interviewed by the police.

The newspaper does not normally identify victims of sex crimes without their consent but is using Constand's name because she has identified herself publicly. He then proceeded, he said, to put his hands in her vagina, and Constand was fine with it.

The earlier relationship was uncovered by Montgomery County detectives as part of their 2005 investigation of Constand's sexual assault claims, the records show.

Also Thursday, a detective testified that Bruce Castor, the district attorney who decided more than a decade ago not to bring charges against Cosby, shut the investigation down in 2005 while police were still working the case.

Some 60 women have come forward to say Cosby sexually violated them, but the statute of limitations for prosecution had run out in almost every case.

Trump delays moving embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem
President Donald Trump has stepped back from a campaign promise to move the American Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. Despite campaign promises to move the embassy to Jerusalem, Trump signed a waiver to keep the embassy in Tel Aviv.

Picking up on the 2005 case reopened by his predecessor Risa Vetri Ferman almost two years ago, newly elected Montgomery County D.A. Kevin Steele charged Cosby just before the expiration of Pennsylvania's 12-year statute of limitations on such sex crimes.

Purna Rodman Conare testified on Thursday at Cosby's sexual assault trial.

However, between his police statement and deposition testimony, Cosby changes his description of the pills he had given Constand.

The key prosecution witness in the ongoing sexual-assault case against Bill Cosby, alleged victim Andrea Constand, testified for seven hours over the last two days (June 6-7). This time, he also tried to touch her breasts, but she said no, and he stopped.

Cosby told police the relationship with Andrea Costand was consensual, and that he and Constand engaged in "petting" - fully clothed kissing and fondling in his Cheltenham home - on three occasions.

Cosby also agreed to talk to police during the first review. McMonagle asked. "Its pretty clear on Valentine's Day there are phone calls being placed from Ms. Constand to Mr. Cosby, correct?"

But after dozens of women started coming forward with accusations of sexual misconduct against Cosby two years ago, the prosecutor's office chose to take another look at the case and charged the star with three counts of indecent aggravated assault.

"And then I went upstairs and got three pills".

Cosby told police he felt he was "under attack" during the call, saying Gianna Constand was antagonistic.
