In court, ex-supermodel Janice Dickinson calls Bill Cosby a 'monster'

Janice Dickinson

On Thursday, April 12, 2018, Dickinson took the stand and claimed that Cosby had drugged and raped her in 1982.

Baker-Kinney has been unflappable under cross-examination, calling out Cosby lawyer Tom Mesereau for rolling his eyes at her and chiding the veteran defense attorney after she said he attempted to twist what she said about being assaulted.

Cosby has said he gave Constand the cold medicine Benadryl and that she consented to a sexual encounter.

Mesereau challenged Dickinson's court testimony, noting that in her 2002 biography No Lifeguard on Duty the Lake Tahoe story ended without any suggestion of misbehaviour on Cosby's part. If convicted, the former TV star best known for his No. 1 family sitcom "The Cosby Show" faces up to 10 years in prison on each of three related aggravated indecent assault charges. That there was nothing consensual about these encounters he carefully choreographed.

I couldn't move. I was I felt like I was rendered motionless.

Dickinson testified that after she snapped it, she began to feel what she thinks now were the effects of a small blue pill Cosby gave her to deal with menstrual pain she was experiencing. Dickinson is one of five Cosby accusers the prosecution team plans to call to the stand after the lawyers were granted permission to call on them as witnesses in an attempt to show the jury an alleged pattern of behaviour.

"I didn't want it to happen to anybody else, what had happened to me", she said.

All of them testified they wound up unconscious from the pills or alcohol Cosby gave them, unable to say no or resist as he had his way with them. After waking up the next morning, she says she noticed semen between her legs.

Dickinson got on the witness stand after prosecutors wrapped up with another Cosby accuser who says Cosby assaulted her on the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe in 1982 as well.

She said she wanted Cosby to stop but couldn't say anything.

The former Temple University women's basketball executive says Cosby drugged and molested her in 2004, when he was a powerful trustee at the school.

Dickinson, 63, is the fourth accuser to testify at Cosby's sexual-assault retrial.

This item has been corrected to fix model Janice Dickinson's first name.

Russian Federation warns of 'consequences' for US-led strike on Syria
The Kremlin on Saturday condemned Western air strikes on Syria where its armed forces are backing President Bashar al-Assad. President Trump "has not yet made a decision about possible actions in Syria", Haley said.

The next day, when she confronted him on a lakeside dock, "he looked at me like I was insane".

And as Cosby headed into the courthouse Thursday, his spokesman, Andrew Wyatt, called them the "supporting cast" to Constand.

Looking back on the first day of her nightmarish trip with Cosby, the supermodel said she remembered having dinner with him and music director Stu B. Gardener before following the actor to his room. They all refer to the other Cosby accusers as fearless, many citing the reports of other women-and the desire to support those women-as their inspiration for speaking out.

Model Janice Dickinson, walks throughout the Montgomery County Courthouse Whilst to a Rest from testifying contrary to celebrity and comedian Bill Cosby through the following evening of his sexual assault retrial situation in Norristown, Pennsylvania, U.S., April 12, 2018.

One thing all these women share does more for Cosby's case than the prosecution's: Inconsistencies in their accounts.

The charged rhetoric has irritated Cosby's lawyers, who have lost two bids for a mistrial. And I said, 'I see two of you and I'm slurring my words.' And Mr. Cosby stood up.

"I wanted to hit him, wanted to punch him in the face", said Dickinson, a highly successful model in the 1970s and 1980s. "They'll help take the edge off.'" Constand asked if she should put them under her tongue, like the herbal remedies they'd discussed.

"I kind of trusted him because he's America's dad", she said. Fenjves has corroborated this statement, and Dickinson even suggested to Mesereau that he could be called as a witness.

This time she's facing a defense team intent on portraying her as a "con artist" who framed him and scored a $3.4 million civil settlement.

"Cosby said, "I have something for that".

"'That wasn't cool, '" she said she told him.

Lasha said the reason her press release, dictated to Allred, contains more detail than her police statement, was due to the fact that the male Los Angeles Police Department officers who interviewed her at her home in 2014 instructed her "to make it as short as possible".
