Defense Lawyer Attacks Bill Cosby Accuser Andrea Constand for Alleged Inconsistencies

Bill Cosby‘s lawyers continued their cross-examination Wednesday of accuser Andrea Constand, claiming Constand gave conflicting dates about when Cosby’s alleged assault of her occurred.

Constand alleges the entertainer drugged and sexually assaulted her at his Pennsylvania mansion in January 2004. But when she reported the alleged attack to Canadian police on Jan. 13, 2005, she said it happened in March 2004, after she’d gone out to dinner with Cosby and others at Central High School in Philadelphia, Cosby’s defense lawyers said.

Cosby’s lawyers said that when Constand spoke with Cheltenham Township, Pennsylvania, police by phone on Jan. 19, 2005, she said the exact date of the incident was March 16 — a date she thought she had confirmed by contacting someone else who attended the Central High dinner.

But when she did an in-person interview with Cheltenham detectives three days later, she told them it happened “between mid January and mid February 2004” at Cosby’s home, and the pair had not gone out to dinner with others beforehand, Constand confirmed on the stand. CLICK FOR MORE
