Janice Dickinson Tells Jury that Bill Cosby Raped Her in 1982

Janice Dickinson Tells Jury that Bill Cosby Raped Her in 1982

The police report filed by Chelan Lasha (shuh-LAWN' LASH'-uh) lacked numerous details she testified about Wednesday at Cosby's sexual assault retrial. Two more were expected to testify later in the trial, in addition to Constand.

Chelan Lasha, sobbing uncontrollably as she testified Wednesday, informed jurors that she acquired to know Cosby via a household connection as a 17-year-old aspiring mannequin and actress in 1986.

She told jurors she was immobilized and unable to speak after Cosby gave her a blue pill and two shots of amaretto.

Instead, it says each went to their separate rooms, where she drank, took sedatives and went to sleep.

"I didn't fly to Tahoe to have sex with Mr. Cosby", she said.

Bill Cosby's lawyer is trying to raise doubts about a woman's allegation that he knocked her out with pills and raped her in 1982.

"I was really light-headed", she said.

The judge denied the request.

Cosby is charged with sexually assaulting a woman at his home in 2004. He says their encounter was consensual.

"It's all a fabrication there", she said.

Cosby said he would foot the bill for her transportation, Dickinson testified, but first wanted to do it cheaply - drawing a laugh from the courtroom crowd.

The Associated Press doesn't typically identify people who say they're victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Lasha has done.

Dickinson testified she met Cosby and his musical director for dinner and complained of menstrual cramps. Cosby paid her US$3.4 million in 2006 to settle a civil lawsuit.

WHYY writes: "Kathleen Bliss, a lawyer for Cosby, started at the end of [Tuesday] to stress inconsistencies in Thomas' story, including discrepancies over the time of her flight to Reno [and] the exact date of the alleged assault".

Cosby is accused of giving pills to college administrator Constand and assaulting her at his home near Philadelphia.

"I wanted to see a serial rapist convicted", Thomas responded. Cosby moved her to the couch, and as she lay there frozen, she felt his hand groping her breasts and moving inside her vagina, she testified.


Dickinson is among 50 other women who have made similar accusations - all cases too old to prosecute.

Prosecutors are calling Dickinson and other accusers to the witness stand to show the 80-year-old comedian has a history of drugging and molesting women.

Assistant District Attorney Stewart Ryan argued the defense will get a chance to test Lasha's credibility when she's cross-examined.

Comedian Bill Cosby has arrived for the fourth day of his sexual assault retrial.

Janice Dickinson walks through Montgomery County Courthouse during a break in the retrial on Thursday.

His biggest success was the television sitcom "The Cosby Show", which ran from 1984 to 1992, in which he played obstetrician Cliff Huxtable, the wise and loveable patriarch of an affluent black family in NY.

Here are the five biggest revelations from her testimony.

"Days later, Cosby arranged to have Thomas flown to Reno, Nevada, where she was greeted at the airport by a driver who took her to a remote ranch house outside the city".

The Associated Press doesn't typically identify people who say they're victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Dickinson has done.

Cosby, 80, once a beloved stand-up comedian and television star known for his family-friendly material, is on trial on charges of drugging and sexually assaulting another woman, Andrea Constand, in 2004.

The first of the five women, Heidi Thomas, returns to the witness stand on Wednesday.

"I had sex with two men that month".

The protection has dismissed the opposite girls's testimony as "prosecution by distraction".

"This man deserves some vindication in this case because the case is nonsense", Los Angeles defense lawyer Tom Mesereau told the jury.

The Associated Press doesn't typically identify people who say they're victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand and Thomas have done.
