Cosby, who has said he does not plan to testify, repeatedly lowered and shook his head as she spoke. They snapped to attention when the comic legend's familiar voice poured into the room.
Constand, 44, alleges that Cosby, 79, gave her pills and then sexually assaulted her in 2004 while she was incapacitated. How would you know if she had dropped dead in all those hours?' She recalled both times in which he became more aggressively flirtatious and attempted to undress her - even though she had made it clear that they were only friends. The case's outcome will likely hinge on whether the jury believes her account, as Cosby himself does not plan to testify.
"During the very time you told the police you were drugged and unconscious you were on the phone with a period of time making multiple phone calls".
"I wish I had recorded it", she testified.
"No, no, no", Cosby could be heard saying.
"Is that what you did?" asked Feden. Agrusa suggested that earlier dinners between Constand and Cosby had been intimate. After learning about the alleged assault in early 2005, Gianna Constand said, she called Cosby and confronted him aggressively in a more-than-two-hour phone call.
Gianna Constand says she missed a chance to record the call in which Cosby shared lewd details of the January 2004 encounter.
"I don't know what that means", Constand said.
"He drugged her and then put her on the Chesterfield and did whatever he wanted", Gianna Constand said, breaking down at one point on the stand.
"Wasn't your friendship with Mr. Cosby in part for him to assist you in the goal of becoming a broadcaster?" the defense attorney Angela Agrusa asked Constand on Tuesday.
Cosby was joined by his grown-up TV daughter Keshia Knight Pulliam as he arrived at court on Monday (05Jun17), and told reporters, "The man that I've known as a child was amusing and witty and smart and philanthropic and full of advice". She will return to the witness stand Wednesday. "He was sorry for what he did".
Aside from the timing of Ms Constand's meetings with Cosby, the defence also raised questions about their nature.
Agrusa suggested to Constand that perhaps her client apologized for upsetting her, or because he "had been in a relationship" with her daughter.
The woman accusing Bill Cosby of sexual assault has acknowledged that she called the American comedian dozens of times in the months after the incident, including multiple calls on Valentine's Day, but batted away suggestions of romance.
For months, Cosby's topflight defense lawyers - and even a former Montgomery County district attorney who once investigated her claim - had vowed that her credibility had been irreparably harmed by the way she acted, and the shifting stories she gave police, in the months after her alleged 2004 attack.
Comedian Bill Cosby, who is being tried for alleged sexual assault of Canadian Andrea Constand, apologised to the victim, says her mother.
Cosby has pleaded not guilty to the charges, insisting their sexual contact was consensual, and has denied similar allegations from more than 60 women.
Defense attorneys are trying to poke holes in Constand's credibility by questioning various aspects of her relationship with him, including why she went to the Foxwoods Casino in CT with him after she'd twice rebuffed sexual advances from him at his home.
At times, Agrusa framed her questions as statements rather than questions, compelling Montgomery County Judge Steven O'Neill to interject and remind the jury that an attorney's questions to a witness are not evidence, and only the answers are.
