PHILADELPHIA - Bill Cosby's defense team says it wrongly accused prosecutors of hiding evidence from his suburban Philadelphia criminal sexual-assault case.
Cosby's lawyers acknowledged in a court filing Monday they made the claim without realizing prosecutors had told Cosby's former lawyer about interviewing a woman who cast doubt on his accuser.
The former lawyer says he knew about prosecutors last year interviewing a woman who said accuser Andrea Constand told her she wasn't sexually assaulted but could make up allegations to get money.
Prosecutors have blasted the allegations of hiding evidence as "outrageous and reckless." They say Cosby's lawyers seemed more interested in shifting the narrative than in uncovering the truth.
Constand told jurors Cosby gave her pills and molested her, which Cosby denies.
Cosby's first trial ended in a hung jury last June. A retrial is scheduled for April.
