Bill Cosby paid Andrea Constand nearly $3.4 million to settle allegations he sexually assaulted her at his Philadelphia mansion in 2004
10 April, 2018, 15:11
Last time, Mr Cosby had jurors brought in from Pittsburgh, 480 kilometres away, because he was concerned locals would be affected by the pre-trial publicity. In the new trial, 5 additional women will speak to show that Cosby had a history of abusing women.
Cosby's lawyers say her memories are tainted at best.
Protesters, waving placards reading "justice for survivors", gathered outside the courtroom ahead of the retrial.
The star pleaded not guilty to the charges made against him before his first trial a year ago.
Cosby is charged with sexually assaulted a woman at his home outside Philadelphia in 2004. He says it was consensual.
"This case is about trust", Steele said in court as he outlined the prosecution's case. Prosecutors declined to comment Monday. She will take the stand again the second time around.
Steele highlighted Cosby's comments in the deposition that he had given Constand one and a half pills to help her "relax". The trial was deemed a mistrial, as the jury could not come to a conclusion. Rochelle has been charged with disorderly conduct.
"In honor of the first day of the Bill Cosby retrial, I went by the address where they filmed The Cosby Show exterior in New York City", said the Facebook caption. She was later released. Femen is an global women's movement that deploys "brave topless female activists painted with the slogans" to protest and raise awareness, according to the organization's website.
A parade of women have ended years of silence to tell their stories of sexual misconduct and assault by powerful men in Hollywood, politics and business.
Nicolle Rochelle is now a member of a feminist group called Femen, which is known for holding topless protests, the Associated Press reported. Paris-based Femen leader Inna Shevchenko said Femen has a presence in eight countries. The group has staged protests in Ukraine and Russian Federation, appearing topless to protest abuses against women.
The woman ran into a crowd of onlookers outside the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pennsylvania, Monday morning.
Most of yesterday was dominated by a closed-door hearing on defense efforts to replace one of the jurors who, according to a motion filed late Friday, had made it clear during jury selection last week that he has "a fixed opinion about Mr. Cosby's guilt in this case". "You never know who's going to want to make a name for themselves".
He also questioned why a woman protesting in support of rape victims would be topless, saying it was disrespectful to victims. Other female witnesses would be called, he said, giving testimony that they were drugged and molested in very similar ways.
The retrial will be before the same judge and district attorney as the first trial. "When someone is drugged, they don't have the ability to consent". Cosby's lawyers wanted the juror removed from the case.
The comedian, who has consistently denied all allegations against him, was said to have appeared startled by the ordeal but was not touched or injured. "It led to a woman being incapable of making a decision".
The entertainer's supporters have tried the same tack to discredit Cosby accusers in the past. In the photo she is wearing a version of Cosby's iconic "Hello Friend" sweatshirt, with the word "Rapist" scrawled over it in marker.
This item has been corrected to show that the woman had "Women's Lives Matter" written on her, not "Matters". But her accusation is the only one to force him into a criminal trial.
