Bill Cosby's chief accuser is set to take the witness stand on Friday at his sexual assault retrial, making for a climactic courtroom showdown after five other women told jurors that the man once revered as "America's Dad" is a serial rapist who harmed them too.It's the only allegation among dozens against Cosby that has led to criminal charges.Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt on Thursday derided the five additional accusers who testified as "distractors" and "advocates for the prosecution and Andrea Constand".Constand's lawyer, Dolores Troiani, called the attacks on her client "outrageous" and "baseless," and ripped Cosby's team for trashing her reputation in the courtroom -- where lawyers are immune from defamation lawsuits -- and in statements to the media.Troiani was peeved at the defense for fighting to disclose the settlement figure to jurors in what she said was a clear violation of the confidential settlement agreement Cosby and Constand struck.The AP does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand and the other women have done.
