Feden pointed this out on the third day of Cosby's trial in Montgomery County Court.

Former Temple employee Andrea Constand walks through the Montgomery County Courthouse before continuing her testimony about her alleged sexual assault by Bill Cosby.

Around 60 women have publicly accused Cosby of being a serial sexual predator for decades.

Cosby had earlier arrived at the courthouse in Norristown, Philadelphia, for the third day of his trial accompanied by actress Sheila Frazier, who starred with him in the 1978 comedy California Suite.

The Mirror took to the streets in D.C.to ask complete strangers what they expect the outcome of the trial will be and how Cosby's celeb status will factor into the justice process.

Constand did not report the alleged January 2004 assault to authorities until January 2005, after she returned home to Canada and after she told her mother.

Andrea Constand arrives during Bill Cosby's sexual assault trial at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pa., Wednesday, June 7, 2017.

Wearing a two-piece suit and sporty white sneakers, Constand frequently fiddled with her reading glasses during the cross examination, sometimes having trouble following the evidence and requesting assistance from the attorneys.

Attorney Gloria Allred has been thrown out of Bill Cosby's sex assault trial after her cellphone went off in court. Where McMonagle alleged Constand lay in bed with him, she contended she sat on the bed next to him.

After learning about the alleged assault in early 2005, Gianna Constand said, she called Cosby and confronted him aggressively in a more-than-two-hour phone call. The case's outcome will likely hinge on whether the jury believes her account, as Cosby himself does not plan to testify. "We have research that tells us that this is not the crime of "the stranger in the bushes, '" Rebecca O'Connor, the vice president of public policy at anti-sexual-violence organization RAINN, says".

Andrea Constand was on the call too but hung up after Cosby offered his apology of sorts. She denied it, sticking to her story that he made "suggestive" advances that did not lead to sexual contact.

"I wish I had recorded it", she testified.

Cosby, 79, is charged with aggravated indecent assault.

For years Cosby was feted by millions as "America's Dad" for his role as a lovable obstetrician and father on The Cosby Show.

Referencing dozens of phone calls between Constand and a young woman, often before or after her meetings with Cosby, the defense also suggested that Constand may have been open to manipulation.

"He said he couldn't read the label and would have to go upstairs to read the prescription bottle, and he said he would mail it to me so I gave him the address", she testified.

"It doesn't matter", she said in response to another question, accusing the lawyer of trying to test her memory with "irrelevant things".

The mother's testimony amounted to a second act for prosecutors attempting to fix the damage done by the defense in a rough morning of cross-examination for Andrea Constand.

Defense lawyer Angela Agrusa, who used a projection screen to scroll through highlighted phone records and question Constand about each one, took particular note of a call on Valentine's Day.

"You didn't tell them the truth", Agrusa charged.

"The room was dark, and there was a nice mood in the room, correct?" she said.

"I sound like a perverted person", Cosby said, according to Gianna Constand, who called Cosby after she first heard the allegations from her daugher.

"And I believed he supported numerous athletic programmes", Ms Constand said.

Agrusa contended that the advances Cosby made on Constand on two occasions - touching her thigh one time, and attempting to unbutton her trousers and pull down her zipper another - signaled his romantic interest.

In August of that year, Constand testified, she asked Cosby's representatives for tickets for her and her family to see his show in Toronto. The defense never asked what the calls were about or why she made them.

"You befriended him because he was going to be able to give you resources", Agrusa said.

The defence tried to suggest Ms Constand had changed her narrative after accessing her phone records, and realising they conflicted with her version of events.

Constand perhaps muted the expected attack by acknowledging some initial confusion over just when the encounter occurred. "I felt really humiliated and I was really confused", she said.

Allred represents more than a dozen of the 50-plus women who have alleged they were sexually assaulted by Cosby, but the statute of limitations for prosecution had run out in almost every case.

The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are sexual assault victims unless they grant permission, which Constand has done.
