PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Bill Cosby faces a preliminary hearing Tuesday to determine if his criminal sex-assault case in suburban Philadelphia goes to trial.
Prosecutors had declined to charge Cosby over Andrea Constand's
complaint in 2005, but arrested him in December after his explosive
deposition in the woman's lawsuit became public.
In the testimony given in that deposition, Cosby is grilled about
giving drugs and alcohol to women before sex; making secret payments
to ex-lovers; and hosting Constand at his home.
The two knew each
other through Temple University, where he was a trustee and she
managed the women's basketball team.
The following exchanges between Cosby and Constand lawyer Dolores
Troiani took place in 2005 and 2006. They are excerpted for brevity
and to delete legal squabbling and repetition.
