District Attorney Kevin Steele will fight to use both the phone call and a lengthy deposition from Constand’s lawsuit at trial.O’Neill did not rule Tuesday on whether the other accusers could testify or whether prosecutors could use Cosby’s deposition or the phone call.“So although dating and romantic relationships are important for adolescents and young adults today, some of the expectations around dating and functions of dating may differ when most people get married in their mid- to late-twenties compared to their late teens and early twenties as they did in the past.” Delaying marriage has many implications, including on the sex lives of young singles.
However, this is not happening as frequently as popular media may lead you to believe.
In our recent study, my colleagues and I found that nearly 90 percent of occurrences of sexual behavior happen with a dating or relationship partner.
She later woke up naked in a hotel room and said she had been sexually assaulted. Constand told police that Cosby drugged and molested her.
Legal experts have said a judge might allow as evidence similar allegations against Cosby in which drugs or alcohol were involved.
There have indeed been some important changes, says Sara Vasilenko, a postdoctoral fellow in Penn State’s Prevention Research Center and Methodology Center.
“One of the biggest differences between young people today compared to earlier generations,” she notes, “is that they are getting married at later ages.” A recent Pew study shows that marriage is at a record low in the United States and the median age at first marriage has never been higher for both genders.
Cosby was arrested in December after the investigation into the allegation Constand first brought in 2005 was reopened, following disclosure of the entertainer’s testimony in a lawsuit and a stream of new allegations by women going back decades.
Cosby looked noticeably healthier as he walked into court Tuesday for the pretrial conference, though his lawyers told the judge that he is blind.
Cosby’s lawyers meanwhile asked that prosecutors not be allowed to use a telephone conversation recorded by his accuser’s mother and other evidence at his trial.
