Cosby Trial: First Witness Kelly Johnson Tells Tearful Story on Stand

NORRISTOWN, Pa. — Jurors in the Bill Cosby trial heard from the first witness Monday, a woman who testified in tears that she was drugged and sexually assaulted by the comedian in 1996 and who then came under a combative cross-examination from the defense.

Kelly Johnson, who worked for the comedian's agent at the time, broke down on the stand while testifying that Cosby invited her to his hotel bungalow and made her swallow a white pill. She said she woke up half-naked in his bed.

"I remember him being behind me, making those grunting sounds. I remember wanting to pull up my dress and wanting to cover myself but not being able to," Johnson said on the stand in Montgomery County Court.
