Cosby trial builds to close

NT News - - ENTERTAINMENT -

NOR­RIS­TOWN: Pros­e­cu­tors are build­ing to the con­clu­sion of their case against co­me­dian Bill Cosby in his sex­ual as­sault re­trial.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors and a phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal ex­pert are ex­pected to take the stand be­gin­ning Tues­day. Pros­e­cu­tors yes­ter­day de­liv­ered a one-two punch as chief ac­cuser An­drea Con­stand re­jected de­fense al­le­ga­tions that she con­cocted her story to score a big pay­day, and her mother tes­ti­fied that Cosby apol­o­gized.

An­drea and Gianna Con­stand’s tes­ti­mony fol­lowed that of five ad­di­tional ac­cusers who told jurors that Cosby had drugged and as­saulted them two decades ear­lier.
