    It was just after 10 a.m., when Assistant District Attorney Kristen Feden called in the Commonwealth’s next witness, and chief accuser, Andrea Constand. As the doors opened, heads turned around to watch Constand enter the courtroom.

    This marked the second time she would face off with the man who she accuses drugged and sexually assaulted her.

    Feden asked Constand if she recalls spending a night at Foxwoods Casino Resort in Connecticut, which she confirms she in fact did remember that night, and very vividly.

    “We had dinner together,” Constand testified. She told jurors she had dinner with Bill Cosby and “Mr. Cantone,” the CEO of Foxwoods. Following dinner, Constand states Mr. Cantone walked her back to her room.

    Once in her room, Constand testified, “I remember getting a phone call from Mr. Cosby” she continued. “He asked me to come upstairs and said that he had some baked goods for me.”

    Constand told jurors she went upstairs where Bill Cosby met her at the door of his room. Once in the room, they started conversing. “He started talking to me about sports broadcasting, Temple. He was unpacking the cart – I thought maybe the baked goods were on the cart. So I just talked to him and while he was unpacking the cart I was sitting on the edge of the bed, and he was just doing his thing,” Constand continued.

    “All of a sudden, he just came onto the bed, kind of, plopped himself down and laid down. I moved from the corner of the bed to base of the bed. I thought something was wrong, he was tired and it was late,” Constand said. “He just laid there with his eyes closed .. I thought maybe he was feeling down. I kind of said I should be going now, so I sat there for about 10 minutes and watched him sleep then I went back to my room.”

    This was the last time Constand interacted with Bill Cosby prior to the alleged sexual assault, according to her testimony.
