'I could not fight him off,' accuser tells Cosby retrial

Top News: Bill Cosby faces accusers in courtroom along with supermodel Janice Dickinson

But when Dickinson turned from testifying about background information related to her character to the topic of the day - her allegation that Bill Cosby drugged and raped her in 1982 - her jocular manner shifted. Dickinson said she met Cosby and a vocal coach at a hotel.

In the book, Dickinson says she rebuffed Cosby's advances, popped two Quaaludes, and went to sleep.

Troiani was peeved at the defence for fighting to disclose the settlement figure to jurors in what she said was a clear violation of the confidential settlement agreement Cosby and Constand struck.

She told the jury that after she was immobilized, Cosby mounted her. He says the encounter was consensual.

"I wanted to punch him in the face", she said.

Taking the stand Thursday, Dickinson alleged that Cosby raped her when she was 27, after giving her a pill he claimed would help her with menstrual cramps.

Bill Cosby accuser Janice Dickinson, 63, walks through the Montgomery County Courthouse in a break from testifying on the fourth day of the comedian's sexual assault retrial on April 12, 2018. "I mentioned that did not invite him to rape her".

Soon Cosby's musical director left, and Dickinson felt woozy and "slightly out of it", she testified.

Before she passed out, she felt pain between her legs.

Cosby, now 80, is on trial for a second time on accusations that he drugged and assaulted former friend Andrea Constand at her Philadelphia home in 2004.

Cosby's first trial in Norristown, a Philadelphia suburb, ended in a hung jury in June, with a sequestered panel hopelessly deadlocked after six days of testimony and 52 hours of deliberations.

Bill Cosby's lawyer is trying to raise doubts about a woman's allegation that he knocked her out with pills and raped her in 1982.

Actor/ stand-up comedian Bill Cosby leaving the Montgomery County Courthouse for the fourth day of his retrial for sexual assault charges on April 12, 2018 in Norristown, Pennsylvania.

Dickinson then clashed with Cosby's defence attorney Tom Mesereau during his cross-examination, in an exchange which USA media outlets described as "heated".

'Here was America's dad on top of me': Janice Dickinson takes the stand at the Cosby trial

The prosecution is using the women's testimony to show an alleged pattern of abuse by Cosby.

Dickinson is the best known of 60 women who have accused Cosby of sexual misdeeds.

On the stand, Constand told jurors she has nothing to gain financially now by wanting Cosby locked up.

"These women proved that they were here to back up their sister - they got their sister's back", Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt said outside court Thursday. They all refer to the other Cosby accusers as courageous, many citing the reports of other women-and the desire to support those women-as their inspiration for speaking out.

A 3rd accuser, Heidi Thomas, informed jurors on Wednesday: "I wish to see a serial rapist convicted".

The charged rhetoric has irritated Cosby's lawyers, who have lost two bids for a mistrial.

"It would never get past Cosby's legal team", she said, recalling advice she received. Defense attorneys say Constand ginned up a sexual assault claim against Cosby as a way of forcing him to pay a almost $3.4 million civil settlement.

The Canadian massage therapist Bill Cosby is accused of drugging and molesting 14 years ago testified Friday that she went "limp and could not fight him off".

She appeared on America's Next Top Model, landed a reality show of her own called the Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency and appeared on The Surreal Life, I'm A Celebrity.Get Me Out Of Here! and Celebrity Rehab with Dr.

The former women's basketball administrator at Cosby's alma mater, Temple University, alleges he gave her pills and molested her. She owed City National Bank $300,000 at the time. When he finished the call, she claims he climbed on top of her.

"'That wasn't cool, '" she said she told him. "He's a powerful guy and they told me he can ruin your career". "I wanted a paycheck".

Lasha said the reason her press release, dictated to Allred, contains more detail than her police statement, was due to the fact that the male Los Angeles Police Department officers who interviewed her at her home in 2014 instructed her "to make it as short as possible".

Years later, in January 2015, after hearing accounts from other women, she said she realized "something else had happened after I blacked out".
