Andrea Constand testified today in the aggravated indecent assault case against comedian Bill Cosby, detailing an encounter with Cosby at his home in January 2004.
CNN reports that Constand said she went to Cosby’s home to discuss her career plans. She testified that at one point he returned with three blue pills, saying they would help her relax.
Constand testified that Cosby told her: “Put them down. They’re your friends, they’ll take the edge off.” She added: “I said, ‘I trust you.’ I took the pills and I swallowed the pills down.”
“About 20 to 30 minutes later, her words were slurring and she became weak, so Cosby moved her to a couch, she said,” CNN reports. “She began ‘panicking’ because she thought she was having a bad reaction to the pills, but she was unable to do anything.”
Constand testified: “I have no recollection until at some point later I was jolted conscious, I was jolted awake, and I felt Mr. Cosby’s hand groping my breasts.”
She went on to describe other sexual acts, saying she wanted him to stop but she was “frozen.”
“In the morning, she got up and still felt disoriented,” CNN reports, quoting Constand saying: “I felt really humiliated and I was really confused. I just wanted to go home.”
