When she took the stand, Constand told the jury Cosby gave her three blue pills and not long after she was jolted awake by the feeling of him sexually violating her.
"I enjoyed it", he said in the interview.
He said he rubbed the skin above her pants and "without talking I'm asking can I go farther". "And I don't feel her say anything", he said in the deposition.
"I believe I have been consistent, but mistaken in some areas", Constand responded. "I am not stopped".
Constand testified that she felt a duty to answer Cosby's inquiries because he was a powerful alumnus and trustee.
If convicted, Cosby could get up to 10 years in prison on each of three charges of aggravated indecent assault. She told the jury she had a phone call with Cosby in 2005 where apologized for his behavior and said he was a "sick man". But Mr. Cosby has suggested that he viewed providing drugs akin to asking a woman if she might like a cocktail. "More information came out thorough us talking to her", Schaffer said. I'm not lifting. I've got her skin and it's just above where you can go in her trousers.
She described accepting pills from Cosby that he said would help her "relax", and then losing control of her body and emerging from a stupor to Cosby spooning her rigid frame and sexually assaulting her.
Schaffer said that Cosby provided police with pink Benadryl pills he said he had given to Constand.
"When you got the Quaaludes, was it in your mind that you were going to use these Quaaludes for young women that you wanted to have sex with?" asked Constand's then-attorney Dolores Troiani.

A year ago they suffered a 2-1 reverse at home to Bayern Munich before reaching the last four after extra-time. "It's a disgrace. Wednesday's thrilling encounter ranks alongside three other close-shaves for Madrid in the competition's quarter-finals.
Cosby says his sexual encounter with Constand was consensual, asserting through his lawyers that she set him up to score a big payday.
This trial is different, in that the judge allowed five other women who accused Cosby of drugging and molesting them to take the stand.
His lawyers previously argued Quaaludes were considered a popular party drug at the time, calling them "disco biscuits" in a court filing several years ago.
Constand has testified she rejected Cosby's previous advances. The hearing dealt with attorney-client privilege, Fifth Amendment concerns and Cosby's defense team's plans to call one of Constand's civil attorneys to the stand, as well as a toxicologist who will dispute her account of how the drugs affected her. The accusations prompted cops from the Cheltenham Police Department to quiz Cosby at his lawyer's New York City office on January 26, 2005.
A police sergeant who investigated Constand's allegation a decade earlier testified Tuesday that the probe was abruptly shut down before police had finished their work. He told police that he likes the things that might lead up to sex but the actual act isn't his forte. Castor has said the evidence showed both parties "could be held in less than a flattering light".
Yesterday, nearly as if to downplay the controversial $3.4 million settlement Constand received in 2006 from Cosby, a sticking point that the defense has been using to paint Constand as greedy, she said she took the money to make the alleged incident from just two years before go away.
The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand has done.
As Cosby arrived at the suburban Philadelphia courthouse Tuesday, spokeswoman Ebonee Benson told reporters that their testimony "seemed to be more colorful and more embellished" than at the first trial.
