Prosecutor says accuser Andrea Constand is happy with Bill Cosby sentence

NORRISTOWN, Pa. — A prosecutor who tried Bill Cosby in his sexual assault case says the comedian’s chief accuser, Andrea Constand, told her she was happy with his three-to-10-year prison sentence.

Cosby was immediately taken into custody Tuesday after a Montgomery County judge sentenced him to state prison for the 2004 sexual assault of Constand.

Montgomery County Assistant District Attorney Kristen Feden said Wednesday on NBC’s “Today” that accuser Andrea Constand gave her strength as she went through the difficult process of prosecuting Cosby.

Feden says “her courage and strength was enough for me to say, ‘Let’s keep going.”

Feden also says that as she watched Cosby during the proceedings, “I don’t even know that it was clear to him that this was judgment day.”

Cosby’s wife, Camille, has claimed that a phone recording played at trial was doctored. On ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Feden’s fellow prosecutor Stewart Ryan called it a “last-ditch effort to cook up an appeal issue.”
