  • Cosby's main accuser off stand after 7 hours

Cosby's defense attorneys argued last week that Constand was a con artist who was after Cosby's money.

The judge has ruled that Jackson can take the rack but indicated after Constand was completed invisibly he could revisit the issue.

Constand denied telling a defense witness almost 13 years ago she was hatching a plot to extort money from a celebrity, but Constand went even further than that, denying that she even knew Marguerite Jackson.

As stated by Gianna, she called Cosby involved her daughter had not been behaving the same as transferring back into Canada.

"He said to me, 'Don't worry, Mom, there was no penile penetration,"' Gianna Constand testified.

Gianna Constand said Cosby admitted to her that he was a "sick man", and that he "felt like a dirty old perverted man".

Defence lawyers for Bill Cosby hammered away at his main accuser's account on Monday, focusing on her cellphone records that they suggested contradicted her story.

Bill Cosby's chief accuser at his sexual-assault trial on Monday denied framing him and said she doesn't know a key witness who plans to testify she spoke of levelling false accusations against a celebrity.

Cosby's lead attorney, Tom Mesereau, concluded his initial cross-examination by asking Constand: "Did you ever fabricate a scheme to falsely accuse him for money?"

The protection plans to telephone Jackson like a witness and says she will testify which before Constand lodged her allegations against Cosby in 2005, Constand had reverted for her to setting up a "high profile man" and submitting suit.

Mesereau hasn't set off many of fireworks yet, but in more than two hours of cross examination on Friday the veteran trial lawyer had Constand flustered with questions about whether she'd ever said she was affectionate toward Cosby, and a line of attack centred on her involvement in a Ponzi scheme. On Friday, Mesereau showed several inconsistencies in Constand's testimony to the prosecution compared with what she'd said to police and in a deposition from years earlier. Later, Constand remembered she knew a woman named "Margo".

What was the accuser's relationship with Cosby?

Her mother followed her on the witness stand on Monday and was more feisty, often clashing with prosecutors and bristling when they asked her if she benefited from Andrea Constand's $3.4 million civil settlement with Cosby. The defence said she spent late nights at the comedian's home, drove four hours to see him at a casino and called him twice on Valentine's Day, about a month after the alleged assault. In this call, Gianna Constand tried to ask when Cosby would send her the name of the drug he gave to her daughter when she was allegedly assaulted.

Constand says Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her at his home; he says he gave her an over-the-counter cold medication and their encounter was consensual.

Cosby could face 10 years in prison if convicted.

Meanwhile, Judge O'Neill, who also presided over Cosby's first trial, disclosed that the emergency surgery he had over the weekend to fix a torn retina in his left eye was successful. He says he's thankful to the doctors who diagnosed the tear and performed the laser procedure on his left eye without disrupting the trial schedule.

Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas Judge Steve T. O'Neill has not yet ruled whether he would allow Jackson to testify.

Mr Mesereau said Ms Constand told police in 2005 that she called Mr Cosby from her university-issued mobile phone just before she arrived at his house on the night of the alleged assault to ensure the gate would be open.

On Monday, the protection also attempted to throw Constand as an enthusiast who acted by showing interest in the long-married Cosby.

Both women worked at Temple University around the time Constand says Cosby drugged and molested her at the comedian's suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. Mesereau asked her. Constand testified that she felt a duty to answer Cosby's inquiries since he was a powerful alumnus and trustee.
