Marguerite Jackson, an academic adviser at Temple University, took the witness stand after a judge overruled prosecutors and said she could tell her story to the jury.
Russell added that he has not spoken to Constand since she left for her job at Temple in 2002 and was unaware she had left Canada.
The defense called Russell to contradict Constand's testimony that she wasn't really interested in pursuing a sports broadcasting career despite accepting Cosby's help and connections. "She came into this court presenting this false aura", he said. In an argument made in the absence of the jury, Cosby attorney Tom Mesereau said the witness, Robert Russell, knew Constand used marijuana and mushrooms when they were friends in 2000 and 2001 and once brought drugs over the border. The defence hoped Jackson's testimony would bolster Cosby's efforts to show Constand fabricated the allegations against him to extort a big civil settlement.
At the first trial previous year, which ended at a mistrial after the jury had been deadlocked, Ms. Constand experienced sentenced being in touch Ms. Williams throughout the span she claimed she had been attacked by Mr. Cosby.
Constand testified she studied communications at the University of Arizona.
Steele also noted that the defense can put Cosby on the stand to respond to his own deposition, while the prosecution cannot do the same with Williams.
Yet Judge Steven O'Neill blocked the lawyers from introducing the tales of drug use and greed, and instead Russell testified briefly about Constand's goals of journalistic stardom. He says it was consensual. The deposition was hidden from public view until 2015, when The Associated Press petitioned to have it unsealed, leading prosecutors to reopen the criminal case.
Constand, after originally telling police she believed the incident occurred in March 2004, has testified that Cosby assaulted her in January of that year at his home in Cheltenham, PA.
In a transcript read to the jury Wednesday, the "Cosby Show" star said he obtained seven prescriptions for quaaludes from his doctor in Los Angeles in the 1970s, ostensibly for a sore back, but added he didn't use them himself because they made him exhausted.

The mayor also announced horse-drawn carriages will be removed from Central Park South and only allowed inside the park. The transverse roads - which are below street grade - at 97th, 86th, 79th and 65th streets will remain open.
Cosby's lawyers sought Wednesday to minimize the importance of his quaaludes testimony. "They are going to read testimony into the trial, and we won't have the opportunity to cross-examine".
Prosecutors also unleashed other passages from Cosby's graphic deposition, including his accounts of purported sexual encounters with Constand and how he apologized to her mother a year later for being "a dirty old man with a young girl".
Cosby, 80, stands charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault.

Bill Cosby's lawyers want jurors to hear from a friend of accuser Andrea Constand who says Constand dreamed of becoming a millionaire. "She had a history of drug use that he says was extensive". She told jurors that Dickinson was upset the company's legal department wouldn't let them print such an explosive story without a corroborating witness.
"There are aspects of this case where we would love to ask Ms. Williams questions about".
