Cosby accuser also testified against Marv Albert

    A woman who says Bill Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her in 1979 also accused sportscaster Marv Albert of attempted sexual assault and testified at his trial.

    P.J. Masten says she woke up naked and bruised in bed with Cosby in Chicago after he gave her alcohol. She says she believes she was raped.

    Since November, at least 20 women have accused Cosby of sexual assault. His lawyer didn’t immediately return a request for comment Friday but has spoken out against many of the allegations.

    Masten was a surprise witness against Albert in his 1997 trial, testifying that he bit her and tried to force her to perform a sex act on him. He later pleaded guilty to assault and battery.

    A representative for Albert didn’t immediately comment Friday.
