Constand said prior to the alleged assault, she had considered Cosby a mentor from whom she sought career advice.
Gianna Constand says that during the phone call, Cosby acknowledged he gave Andrea Constand a prescription medication and then graphically described their sexual encounter. She said it was suspicious how Constand waited to come home from work to call her daughter's alleged abuser.
Prosecutors at Pennsylvania are now retrying Cosby on charges that he mistreated 4 5, Andrea Constand, in his suburban Philadelphia home in 2014 and drugged. The defence said she spent late nights at the comedian's home, drove four hours to see him at a casino and called him twice on Valentine's Day, about a month after the alleged assault.
The Associated Press doesn't typically identify people who say they're victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand has done.
Constand said she didn't remember taking a required sexual assault and harassment training seminar when she started working at Temple, or another one on avoiding conflicts of interest, such as fraternizing with board trustees.

Mesereau hasn't set off many of fireworks yet, but in more than two hours of cross examination on Friday the veteran trial lawyer had Constand flustered with questions about whether she'd ever said she was affectionate toward Cosby, and a line of attack centred on her involvement in a Ponzi scheme.
"I gave my best recollection of the evening", Constand replied.
The defense lawyer also accused Andrea Constand of trying to climb her way up into Hollywood after college. He says the sexual encounter was consensual.
The former TV star ultimately settled Constand's lawsuit for almost $3.4 million. Cosby settled the case for about $3.4 million.
On Monday, Constand testified she did not "recall ever having a conversation with" Jackson.
Ms Constand told the court that she does not know Marguerite Jackson - a woman who the defence plan to call as a witness as part of their attempt to discredit her. She also alleged that Andrea Constand was close to losing her job at Temple due to poor performance and that the university was pursuing collections for money owed by her, which Gianna Constand said she didn't know about either.More news: Greens announce plan to legalise cannabis
A Canadian basketball star who is the chief accuser in Bill Cosby's retrial has denied she is framing the comedian for sexual assault.
Andrea Constand said under cross-examination Monday that her phone calls to Cosby were about basketball.
Phone records show Constand, the former director of women's basketball operations at Temple University, made brief calls to Cosby around the time of a Temple home game on February 14, 2004, the month after the alleged assault. Mesereau asked Constand. Constand said she hadn't, and Mesereau shot back, "Then what are we doing here?"
The judge in Bill Cosby's sexual assault retrial says he's seeing the courtroom clearly again after having emergency surgery over the weekend to fix a torn retina. At the time, Judge Steven O'Neill ruled Jackson's testimony would be hearsay.
Constand, who's from the Toronto area, told Mesereau she was just being nice when she hugged Cosby or kissed him on the cheek, because she was grateful for his friendship and mentorship. The testimony was also included at his first trial, which ended with a hung jury a year ago.
Bill Cosby has arrived for the sixth day of his sexual assault retrial where he will again come face-to-face with his primary accuser. Later, prosecutor Kristen Gibbons Feden read Constand the definition of a pyramid scheme and asked Constand whether that accurately described the business she was involved in. Her testimony prompted Cosby, sitting with his lawyers at the defense table, to open his eyes wide.More news: Android Apps Violating Children Online Privacy Protection Act
