Protester Jumped Barricade Outside Bill Cosby Trial

Topless protest: semi-naked woman attacked bill Cosby

Cosby's lawyers argued in court documents on Monday that Lasha's record is vital to assessing her credibility.

The case boils down to he said, she said. Cosby has denied the charges.

The star pleaded not guilty to the charges made against him before his first trial a year ago.

Before court convened, a former "Cosby Show" actress stripped off her top and confronted Cosby as he walked to court, accompanied by publicists and police.

Mr Cosby has been charged with aggravated indecent assault, a second degree felony, by the Pennsylvania prosecutor. He says it was consensual.

There are also expected to be crucial differences in how the retrial unfolds. She filed a lawsuit after another district attorney declined to prosecute Cosby. The performer, once known as "America's dad", stands accused of sexual assault. She was a Temple University staff member at the time. He said Constand later awoke on Cosby's sofa feeling "violated".

On Monday, prosecutors revealed that Cosby paid Constand $3.4 million in a civil settlement, reported.

Cosby is charged with drugging and molesting Constand at his home in 2004.

"This case is about trust", Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele told the jury. Jezebel reports that she was not aiming for Cosby, but rather for the news cameras in front of him. Nicolle wrote the group's name on her torso along with the names of more than 50 of Bill's accusers when she protested outside the courthouse. She was later released.

Over the past few years, about 60 women have come forward with allegations against Cosby dating to the 1960s. She was quickly detained.

Rochelle didn't have any negative encounters with Cosby as a child on the show, the actress told the Associated Press. Femen is an global Women's movement of topless female activists painted with slogans and our mission is protesting the patriarchy and reclaiming our bodies'.

39-year-old Nicolle Rochelle was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct after she attacked Cosby at his retrial outside of the Pennsylvania courthouse on Monday. Wyatt got into an animated conversation with a sheriff's deputy.

"You never know who's going to want to make a name for themselves". He added that the woman's protest was "sad" and asked about the "message" it sent.

In a twist, the judge hinted that he might not allow jurors to hear Cosby's lurid deposition testimony about giving quaaludes to women before sex.

The AP does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand has done.

This time, O'Neill has warned the trial may last a month.

The woman said in an affidavit last week that the juror offered his opinion as they chatted during jury selection. The defense had asked for the juror in question to be dismissed, but no jurors were removed.

"I wanted to get as close to him as possible without touching him", she said.

Studies have also shown that mock juries are a lot more inclined to replicate defendants right after hearing against various former accusers, specially in sexual offense situations, according to Aviva Orenstein, a law professor at Indiana University and an expert in demo evidence. His last trial ended in a hung jury. "It led to a woman being incapable of making a decision".

The words "Women's Lives Matter", were written in red ink on her chest and stomach along with other phrases.
