Bill Cosby sexual assault retrial set to begin in Pennsylvania

Opening statements set in Bill Cosby's sex assault retrial

He said she stiffed roommates on utility bills, racked up big credit card bills and operated a Ponzi scheme while running women's basketball operations at Temple University.

Bill Cosby's retrial is now underway in a Pennsylvania courtroom, where the comedian stands accused of drugging and molesting a woman at his home in 2004.

Femen was founded in Ukraine in 2009, and its members have protested, often topless, against people and institutions that they believe oppress women.

Cosby's lawyers say her memories are tainted at best.

Steele released the amount and provided a timeline of events to the jury - Constand left Temple and approached police in 2005, and the Montgomery County District Attorney's office decided not to criminally charge Cosby.

"This case is about trust, " Steele told the jury.

The woman said in an affidavit last week that the juror offered his opinion as they chatted during jury selection.

But as the psychiatrist testified, Cosby removed his hand from his mouth to reveal an unsettling grin.

The 80-year-old Cosby is accused of drugging and molesting a woman at his home in 2004.

MARCH: Constand sues Cosby for sexual battery and defamation.

"This case is about betrayal, and that betrayal leading to the sexual assault of a woman named Andrea Constand", he said.

Unless he was thinking about having Pudding Pops with lunch, Bill Cosby has one twisted sense of humor. Cosby fights the request.

Mesereau added: "Mr Cosby's no criminal". Steven T. O'Neil, the veteran judge overseeing the case, reversed a previous decision and allowed testimony from a Temple University counselor who had worked with sex assault victims.

With little to no forensic evidence, the prosecution's case relies on Constand and her testimony.

December 30, 2015: Cosby is arrested, enters a not guilty plea and is released on $1 million bail. "This is what was really going on'".

Mr Cosby called only one defence witness during the trial previous year, a detective who testified for just six minutes. "In my head, I was trying to get my hands to move or my legs to move, but I was frozen", she says.

"I wanted him to feel something".

Six women will take the stand to allege Mr Cosby sexually assaulted them as the former TV star's retrial begins in Pennsylvania.

"The main goal was to make Cosby uncomfortable because that is exactly what he has been doing for decades to women and to show him that the body can be aggressive and empowered", she said afterward. And so I continue and I go into the area that is somewhere between permission and rejection.

This time, however, they will come from the local area.

In addition to winning the acquittal of Michael Jackson in the singer's 2005 child-molestation case, Meserau famously defended Mike Tyson and Suge Knight.

This isn't Cosby's first ill-timed smile.

The number was made public for the first time on Monday as Cosby returned to court for his trial on three counts of aggravated indecent assault. The defense argues that "ancient allegations" would confuse, distract and prejudice the jury.

O'Neill has agreed to let five other Cosby accusers testify, compared to just one the last time, handing a major victory to prosecutors, who will seek to paint Cosby as a serial predator. But they failed to make clear why jurors should care that the comedian paid a $3.4 million settlement to accuser Andrea Constand. Five of those women may be called as witnesses by the prosecution in their efforts to persuade jurors that Cosby is a serial sexual criminal.

Cosby also has new attorneys for this trial.
