PROSECUTION OPENING STATEMENT: Assistant District Attorney Kristen Feden used Cosby's words against him, citing a deposition he gave in accuser Andrea Constand's 2005 civil lawsuit in which he acknowledged giving her pills and penetrating her with his fingers as she lay on a couch at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. Feden told jurors Constand "couldn't say no."
