Exclusive: Andrea Constand describes the moment she decided to put Bill Cosby on trial

It was October 2014, a crisp fall evening. The sun had set hours earlier, and the street noise had hushed to a quiet hum. I made sure Cassie was settled onto her dog pillow outside my bedroom door, and then I slipped under the covers. Maddy jumped onto the bed and stretched out beside me. I took my phone from my bedside table to check for messages and briefly scroll through Facebook before I called it a day. One of my FB friends had posted a video along with the words “Hey, everybody. Check this out!” I took the cue and clicked Play. I wasn’t prepared for what I would see and hear next.
