Got drugs to give women for sex

6 Jul, 2015

In the unsealed testimony obtained by AP, Cosby admits obtaining drugs for the purposes of having sex with women. Cosby, giving sworn testimony in the lawsuit accusing him of sexual assaulting Constand at his home in Pennsylvania in 2005, said he got seven quaalude prescriptions in the 1970s. Constand’s lawyer asked if he had kept the sedatives through the 1990s — after they were banned — but was frustrated by objections from Cosby’s lawyer.

Lawyer: 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?

Cosby: Yes

When asked if he ever gave any women the quaaludes without their knowledge Cosby’s lawyer again objected, leading Constand’s lawyer to petition the federal judge to force Cosby to cooperate. Cosby later said he gave Constand three half-pills of Benadryl, although Constand’s lawyer doubts that was the drug involved. The two other women who testified on Constand’s behalf said they had knowingly been given quaaludes.
