Camille Cosby Defends Husband Against "Lynch Mob" In Lengthy Statement

Camille Cosby, " the director of the disgraced comedian Bill Cosby, disparaged social press, Mr. Cosby's accusers and his prosecutors at a caustic announcement released Thursday, her initial public comments since Mr. Cosby was convicted of sexual assault a week.

"This is mob justice, not real justice.This tragedy must be undone not just for Bill Cosby, but for the country".

"In the case of Bill Cosby, unproven accusations evolved into lynch mobs, " she wrote.

She also implied that Constand wasn't truthful, explaining her claims weren't supported by evidence and were "riddled with innumerable, dishonest contradictions".

She appeared at the first trial in 2017 once, and at the two-week retrial for the closing statement of Bill Cosby's defense team.

"Twelve honorable people - a jury of Cosby's peers - have spoken", Troiani said. "There is nothing more that needs to be said", he said in a statement emailed to USA Today.

Cosby then called for a criminal investigation into the "district attorney and his cohorts".

Mrs Cosby compared the dozens of other women who've accused her husband to a "lynch mob" spurred on by the media's "frenzied, relentless demonisation" of the man who earned a reputation as America's Dad playing Dr Cliff Huxtable on the top-rated family sitcom The Cosby Show.

But according to Constand, it already has. She said, "History disproves that...for example, Emmett Till's accuser immediately comes to mind". She asked "are the media now the people's judges and juries?"

Camille Cosby said her husband's sexual assault trial was tantamount to the infamously martyred teen Emmett Till and other black men who are routinely and falsely accused of rape by White women.

Bill Cosby was found guilty last week on three counts of aggravated indecent assault for drugging and sexually assaulting Constand in 2004. In a statement, The Academy said the board "has voted to expel actor Bill Cosby and director Roman Polanski from its membership in accordance with the organisation's Standards of Conduct".

Cosby faces up to 10 years on each count, but will probably serve them concurrently, if in fact he ever goes to prison given the often lengthy appeal process, which his lawyers have promised to pursue.

Cosby reportedly stood up and erupted after jurors left the courtroom, using an expletive to refer to District Attorney Kevin Steele, who was arguing to revoke Cosby's bail.

"This is a homogeneous group of exploitive and corrupt people, whose primary goal is to advance themselves professionally and economically at the expense of Mr. Cosby's life", her statement said.

Judge Steven O'Neill has yet to schedule a sentencing date, but Cosby has been confined to his home and fitted with a Global Positioning System tracking device. Nonetheless he was held in prison until 2004, serving nearly twenty years behind bars, until the true rapist confessed to the crimes.
