The Latest: Cosby at court to again face primary accuser

NORRISTOWN, Pa. — The Latest on the Bill Cosby sexual-assault retrial (all times local):

8:30 a.m.

Bill Cosby has arrived for the sixth day of his sexual assault retrial where he will again come face-to-face with his primary accuser.

The 80-year-old comedian walked through heavy rain into the suburban Philadelphia courthouse under a large black umbrella held by his spokesman.

Chief accuser Andrea Constand will be back on the stand Monday as Cosby lawyer Tom Mesereau scours a binder full of her police statements and prior testimony for inconsistencies.

During cross examination Friday, the trial lawyer had Constand flustered with questions about whether she'd ever said she was affectionate toward Cosby. Another line of attack centered on her involvement in a Ponzi scheme.

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

Bill Cosby's chief accuser is back on the witness stand as the comedian's lawyers look to raise doubts about her allegations that he drugged and molested her in 2004.

Andrea Constand faces more defense questions on Monday, and Cosby lawyer Tom Mesereau is scouring a binder full of her police statements and prior testimony for inconsistencies.

During cross examination Friday, the trial lawyer had Constand flustered with questions about whether she'd ever said she was affectionate toward Cosby. Another line of attack centered on her involvement in a Ponzi scheme.

Mesereau opened the sex assault retrial last week with a blistering attack on Constand, telling jurors the evidence will show she's nothing more than a con artist.

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