In her opening statement, Assistant District Attorney Kristen Feden insisted to jury that the case isn't about consent at all, claiming that when the comedian "handed those pills to Andrea Constand he knew what affect it would take" and that she would be unable to accept his advances.

"Trust, betrayal, and the inability to consent. That's what this case is about. . .This is a case about a man, this man," Feden said of Cosby, arguing he "used his power and his fame and his previously practiced method of placing a young trusting woman in an incapacitated state so that he could sexually pleasure himself so that she couldn't say no."

Meanwhile, Defense Attorney Brian McMonagle claimed the case had been "exhaustively investigated" in the past, with Constand's claims purportedly found to be "untruthful time and time and time again."

"You're going to find out that Andrea Constand changed her story," McMonagle told jurors. "Promise me you will stand up and find this man not guilty."

After opening statements, assistant district attorney Stewart Ryan called his first witness, alleged victim Kelly Johnson, to the stand. A former William Morris employee, Johnson, 55, claimed she met Cosby in her office. By 1999, he was asking her to "run lines" with him in his home. In one incident, Cosby allegedly gave her a "large white pill."

"I wouldn't give anything to hurt you, trust me, it will just make you relax," she said the comedian told her. However, she soon felt "underwater." Later, Johnson woke up in the bedroom, she recalled in an emotional testimony. "I was wearing a dress, it was up over my waist and down past my breast and my breasts were exposed. He put lotion in my hand and put his penis in my hand." She said Cosby teamed up with her employer to get her fired.
