Bill Cosby 80 faces three felony counts of aggravated indecent assault

"I was thinking, 'What the f-k?' Sorry, 'What the heck, what the heck?' I didn't consent to this, I hadn't said yes". "I told him I was pregnant".

"Here was America's dad on top of me, happily married man with five children and how very, very wrong it was", she said.

"I only fly first-class", she remembered saying. "How very wrong it was".

"I would like Cosby to come out and at least acknowledge that he is a pig, he is a monster, and he raped me", Dickinson said during her ET segment.

The former women's basketball administrator at Cosby's alma mater, Temple University, alleges he gave her pills and molested her.

Dickinson, one of five women tapped by prosecutors to recount similar encounters with Cosby, took the stand Thursday on Day 4 of the 80-year-old comedian's retrial.

Holding up a copy of her book, Mesereau cited passages in which she described rebuffing Cosby's advances in Lake Tahoe, then "popping two Quaaludes and going to sleep" alone in her own hotel room.

According to USA Today, Dickinson told the jury that Cosby raped her in 1982 when she was 27, after he gave her a pill he claimed would help her with menstrual cramps.

It took decades for her to call him out publicly, Dickinson said, saying the guidance she was given as a 20-something was to keep her mouth shut for the sake of professional advancement.

Macron: Assad regime used chemical weapons on Syria's Douma
Mr Macron said he would respond "at a time of our choosing, when we judge it to be the most useful and the most effective". The French leader had previously said any strikes would target the Syrian government's "chemical capabilities".

On Thursday, it was Dickinson's turn to tell jurors that Cosby had taken advantage of her after knocking her out with drugs.

Dickinson says that Cosby flew her first class from Bali, Indonesia, where she was modeling, to a ritzy ski resort in the Sierra Nevada for what she thought would be talks about her career.

"I don't lie, sir, don't call me a liar", Dickinson said. "It was gross", she said.

"I wanted to punch him in the face", she said. "I wanted to punch him in the face", Dickinson said.

"I remember the taste of his kiss, it smelt like cigars and espresso..."

"He stayed with me throughout the entire pregnancy", she said.

On cross-examination, Cosby lawyer Tom Mesereau grilled Dickinson on her 2002 book, "No Lifeguard on Duty", in which she describes her harrowing encounter with Cosby.

Cosby's musical director left, Dickinson said, and Cosby told her: "We'll continue this conversation upstairs".

"It's all a fabrication there", she said of the book. It was written by ghostwriters. "I wanted a paycheck".

While Constand is scheduled to testify in the retrial, the prosecution has been allowed to call five additional women, including Dickinson, who claim they were sexually assaulted by Cosby in an attempt prove a pattern of criminal conduct by the famous defendant.

Janice Baker-Kinney was frank about her history-her experiments with drugs in the 1970s, her bout with alcoholism-and how she still blames herself for accepting two pills from Cosby the night she says he sexually assaulted her.

Janice Baker-Kinney walks toward the courtroom to testify against Bill Cosby on April 12, 2018 in Norristown, Pennsylvania. After that afternoon, confronting Cosby, she demanded to know why he failed it.

"It pisses me off that that's something I'm carrying forever", she said. I don't want to think that something that happened to me is my fault.

As he tried to introduce himself before cross-examination, she looked at him from the stand, and icily exclaimed, "Good morning, Mr. Mesereau".

The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand and the other women have done. Lise-Lotte Lublin rounded out this slate of witnesses for the state on Thursday.

Another accuser, taking the witness stand after Dickinson, said Cosby prodded her to drink two shots in his Las Vegas hotel suite, then had her sit between his knees and started petting her head.

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.

The admission of testimony from five other accusers presents the biggest challenge for the defense.
