Bill Cosby’s sex assault trial Thursday will see the remaining two women testify of the five permitted to take the stand for the prosecution.
The women allege Cosby sexually assaulted them in the past. Cosby is accused of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his Cheltenham Township home in 2004. In court Thursday, model Janice Dickinson told the jury Cosby gave her pills in a Lake Tahoe hotel room in 1982 after she complained of menstrual pains. Dickinson claims Cosby raped her after the pills knocked her out. Cosby’s attorney, Tom Mesereau, had an exchange with Dickinson asking her why she didn’t come forward sooner and why in a book she said Cosby slammed the door on her when she tried to get into his hotel room. Dickinson said it was the work of ghost writers and that Cosby could have ended her career with his influence at that time. Dickinson told Mesereau not call her a liar and that she put her hand on the bible to testify truthfully.
