Camille Cosby has broken her silence one week after her husband, Bill Cosby, was found guilty of sexual assault. The verdict could send him to jail for the rest of his life, but his ever-loyal wife is standing by his side.
According to Fox News, in a lengthy statement, Camille Cosby called the case "mob justice, not real justice." She also claimed that it is a "tragedy" that must be undone. Her husband's accusers, she says, are all liars, including Andrea Costand, the accuser who was able to press charges and provide evidence in court.
According to Cosby's wife, the Pennsylvania Montgomery County Courthouse carried out the "worst injustices" against her husband, including permitting key witnesses that gave a "falsified account." On top of that, Constand's “recent testimony during the trial was perjured; as was shown at trial, it was unsupported by any evidence and riddled with innumerable, dishonest contradictions.”
“This is a homogeneous group of exploitive and corrupt people, whose primary purpose is to advance themselves professionally and economically at the expense of Mr. Cosby’s life. If they can do this to Mr. Cosby, they can do so to anyone,” she said.
In her statement, Camille Cosby accused the media of engaging in a "relentless demonization" of her husband, thereby labeling him guilty before looking at the evidence against him. It is the media's fault, she says, that her husband was deemed guilty.
“The overall media, with their frenzied, relentless demonization of him and unquestioning acceptance of accusers’ allegations without any attendant proof, have superseded the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments, which guarantee due process and equal protection, and thereby eliminated the possibility of a fair trial and unbiased jury. Bill Cosby was labeled as guilty because the media and accusers said so,” she said.
These comments come after a jury of seven men and five women returned guilty verdicts last week on a total of three accounts of aggravated indecent assault that took place in January 2004. The assault was against a former Temple University employee, who recalls that she lost consciousness after Cosby gave her three blue pills and a sip of wine.
"Once again, an innocent person has been found guilty based on an unthinking, unquestioning, unconstitutional frenzy propagated by the media and allowed to play out in a supposed court of law," Camille continued, according to E News. "This is mob justice, not real justice. This tragedy must be undone not just for Bill Cosby, but for the country."
