PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The latest on newly obtained deposition testimony from Bill Cosby (all times local):
Bill Cosby said a woman who accused him of molestation was a willing participant in a sexual encounter. But he also acknowledged at one point being "somewhere between permission and rejection" as it happened.
The actor also said another encounter stopped at the woman's request. That's according to his deposition in her civil lawsuit.
The Associated Press on Sunday obtained a transcript of a 2005 deposition. The deposition, first reported by The New York Times, represents the only publicly available testimony that Cosby gave under oath in response to accusations that he gave drugs to women and sexually assaulted them. Cosby has denied the accusations.
The lawsuit was brought by an ex-employee at Temple University, Andrea Constand.
The 78-year-old comedian says he offered to pay for Constand's education and had paid other women after they had sex with him.
Bill Cosby says he paid women after having sex with them and went to great lengths to hide his behavior and the payments from his wife.
The New York Times (http://nyti.ms/1CPjldP) reports the revelations Saturday after obtaining a copy of a transcript from a deposition Cosby gave a decade ago.
The 78-year-old comedian was testifying under oath in a lawsuit by a former Temple University employee, Andrea Constand, who says he molested her.
He says he offered to pay for Constand's education and had paid other women after they had sex with him.
He also admits he funneled money to some of the women through his agent so his wife wouldn't find out.
During the questioning, he says he was a good reader of women and called Constand a liar.
