Thirteen years after her harrowing experiences with the disgraced comedian, Bill Cosby, Andrea Constand is, for the first time, dishing on what really happened to her that fateful afternoon.
On the 26th of April, a court and jury convicted Bill Cosby on three counts of sexual assault on Andrea back in 2004. In the eyes of the legal system, Bill is guilty of drugging and raping the 45-year-old woman, who was 32-years-old at the time.
Bill went through a trial process a few months before the one which led to his “guilty” conviction, but the jurors couldn’t come to a decision and the trial ended in gridlock. During his second trial, many other women who allegedly were victimized by Cosby defended Andrea and told their stories of abuse.
During her testimony, Andrea said she worked at Temple University when she met Bill, and she went to his house to receive advice on her acting career. Constand said the disgraced comedian gave her three pills so she could relax.
During NBC’s Dateline program, Andrea said after he requested she take them, she asked, “are they natural?” Bill told her that “they were her friends,” and was just supposed to take them without question.
Constand said she took the pills because she trusted they would help her relax. Shortly after ingesting them, she said she began to “see double vision.”
During a chat with NBC reporters, Andrea said she became a “limp noodle,” because she couldn’t move her hands or arms in the way that she wanted. She delved in and out of consciousness and had no power over her body. And she wanted to fight back but couldn’t.
Bill has vehemently denied all of the charges and he and his attorney attend to appeal in a court of law. However, a court and jury will sentence him in September of this year. There’s a very good chance the Cosby Show alum will spend his final days in prison, as each conviction is worth a maximum of ten years in jail.
