The woman whose allegations that Bill Cosby drugged and assaulted her led to his conviction made the very first public statements after the trial. Here is what she had to say about the whole situation.
Andrea Constand has her first interview since the star was convicted of three counts of aggravated indecent assault.
Her comments tracked what she said on the witness stand at Cosby’s two trials. SHe said that Cosby knocked her out with three blue pills that he called ‘your friends’ and then he attacked her at his house.
‘My mind is saying, ‘Move your hands. Kick. Can you do anything? I don’t want this. Why is this person doing this?’ And me not being able to react in any specific way,’ Constand said in the taped interview, a brief clip of which aired on NBC’s Today show yesterday, May 31.
‘So I was limp. I was a limp noodle.’
‘I was crying out inside, in my throat, in my mind, for this to stop. And I couldn’t do anything’, she added
Constand confessed that she felt ashamed and she didn’t immediately tell anyone about the assault because she thought no one would believe it.
The full interview with Constand will air tonight on the network’s ‘Dateline’ show.
Cosby awaits his sentencing September 24. He’ll be 81 in July, and he will probably face a sentence of five to 10 years in prison.
