Agrusa contended that, after poring over her phone records, Constand realized she'd placed almost 10 calls to various friends the night of March 16.
The defense repeatedly pointed out that during the night of the alleged sexual assault, a fire had been lit, the lights were dimmed and incense provided by Constand burned, all contributing to a romantic mood. Constand's is the only one of those cases that is not too old to be the subject of criminal prosecution, leaving the question of whether Cosby will be found guilty of sex crimes hanging primarily on her word.
She said that she had gone to Mr Cosby's house for dinner when he offered her three blue pills which he said were her "friends" and would help her to relax.
"They're your friends. They'll take the edge off", she said Cosby told her.
Cosby whispered to his lawyers and shook his head during her testimony. Under a settlement Constand and Cosby reached in 2006, Constand was prohibited from speaking publicly about her accusation.
"I was jolted conscious, jolted awake, and I felt Mr. Cosby's hand groping my breasts, under my shirt", she recalled. So far, more than 50 women have come forward to accuse the former Cosby Show actor of drugging and sexually assaulting them. Ms Constand's case is the only one in which Cosby has been charged.
According to WHYY reporter Laura Benshoff, who spoke with NPR's All Things Considered, Constand described meeting Cosby at a Temple basketball game, where he inquired about some facilities in the women's locker room.

Like Bedminster, many of Trump's golf clubs showed modest growth during the time-span between his first and most recent filings. The report shows Trump resigned from more than 500 positions, stepping down from many on the day before his inauguration .
"He said 'put them down [your throat]. Of course she was calling him back". Somebody that I trusted.
But he had also previously made advances on her, she said.
He says she told him and two other investigators that she felt Cosby place "something foreign" in her genitals but wasn't specific. Constand claims that she replied, "I did not, I just want to know what you gave me", to which Cosby did not give her a clear answer. "They were limp and I wasn't able to get there, to fight, to get away". Constand told the jury that, after the alleged assault, she had several phone conversations with Cosby and met once in person to find out what pills he gave her. "And I believed he supported numerous athletic programs", Constand said.
"It was a very big burden on me, but". Prosecutors hope Ms Johnson's testimony will signal to jurors that Cosby had done it before, but his defence has attacked her credibility given discrepancies in her accounts of the encounter.
The 79-year-old actor's life and legacy are on the line when his accuser takes the stand. Constand then sued Cosby in civil court, ultimately settling for an undisclosed amount.
The mother of a Bill Cosby accuser is telling jurors about the day her daughter told her Cosby had drugged her at a hotel bungalow.
"So once you got ahold of your phone records and realized you could not have been passed out and unconscious, you changed your story", Agrusa asked.
Sewell said they didn't go to police at the time because her husband, a Los Angeles detective, feared the ordeal that would ensue.
