Andrea Constand

Bill Cosby’s Wife Lashes out at the DA After her Husband’s Guilty Verdict

in Scandals by

Bill cosby found guilty Camille Cosby is now speaking out about her husband’s guilty verdict. She released a statement to the media that makes very disparaging comments against the Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele, her husband’s chief accuser Andrea Constand, the media, and the jury. Her scathing statement, released today, has raised a lot of eyebrows and people are not happy with Camille at all.

Her husband, disgraced actor Bill Cosby, was found guilty on three counts of aggravated indecent assault for Cosby’s January 2004 sexual assault of Andrea Constand. The jury, consisting of seven men and five women, spent two days to decide Cosby’s fate. He is allowed to stay free on bail until sentencing. The judge did not announce a date for the sentencing but the law requires that it be done within 100 days of the conviction. Cosby, is facing up to 30 years in prison.

After the verdict, Cosby’s lead defense attorney, Tom Mesereau, told the press outside the courthouse and the fight is not over. When asked by a reporter if they plan on appealing, he said, “We are very disappointed by the verdict. We don’t think Mr. Cosby is guilty of anything, and the fight is not over.”

Camille stood by her man the entire trial. She stayed away from the trial itself but she was verbally supporting him in the media. She was there for the defense’s closing arguments. After the verdict, she put her arm around her husband and then left when it was the prosecutor’s turn to argue, she left.

Camille Cosby’s statement is quite lengthy but there are few real gems in the midst of her victim blaming nonsense. She starts her rambling statement talking about how the constitution was were powerful men and it doesn’t include any input from women, Native Americans, poor white meant and absolutely no enslaved Africans.

She then launches into claiming that Bill Cosby was demonized in the media and labeled guilty before the trial even started. She said, “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relentless demonization of him and unquestioning acceptance of accusers’ allegations without any attendant proof, have superseded the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments, which guarantee due process and equal protection, and thereby eliminated the possibility of a fair trial and unbiased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.”

She then compares her husband’s trial to those trials of Emmett Till and Darryl Hunt. Till was a 14 year African American boy who was falsely accused of sexually assaulting a white woman. He was adducted by the family of the woman that accused him of sexual assault and was brutally and tragically murdered. Decades later, his accuser admitted she fabricated the story. In the case of Darryl Hunt, he was arrested and charged at 19 years old of a sexual assault but was later exonerated based on DNA evidence that cleared him of the crime. Camille believes that Cosby is being unfairly treated just like these two men. She says that the justice system fails to protect African Americans who have been falsely accused.

Her biggest beef however was with the Montgomery County Courthouse. She says, “The worst injustices, however, have been carried out in the Pennsylvania Montgomery County Courthouse. Three criminal charges, promised during an unethical campaign for the district attorney’s office, were filed against my husband…all based on what I believe to be a falsified account by the newly elected district attorney’s key witness.”

She then calls for a criminal investigation into district attorney and his “cohorts”.  She believes that these people plotted to get her husband behind bars because they wanted to advance their political careers. She calls it an abuse of power and calls the prosecution, the witnesses and the judge “vicious, lying, self-absorbed paradigms of evilness.”

Constand’s lawyer Dolores Troiani had only two comments about Camille’s rant. She said, “why would any reputable outlet publish that? Twelve honorable jurors – peers of Cosby – have spoken,” Troiani said. “There is nothing else that needs to be said.”


Opening Statements in the Begin in the First Day of Bill Cosby’s Trial

first day in bill cosby trial Today marked day one of the Bill Cosby trial and opening statements began with a bang. Cosby was at the courthouse bright and earlier. The 79-year-old comedian walked alongside his spokesperson, Andrew Wyatt on the right, and his former TV daughter Keshia Knight Pulliam, 38 and quickly walked into the courthouse trying to avoid to the media. His wife, Camille, did not come with him. She in the past publicly said that her husband is innocent but decided not to support him on the first day of the trial.

Cosby seemed to be at ease walking into court. He walked into the court with a wooden cane but he appeared to be in good health. He was seen chatting and smiling with his legal team. He also laughed and clapped them on their backs before taking his seat at the front of Montgomery County Court, Norristown. Someone from the media then asked him how he felt and he just smiled.

Even though Cosby has declined to testify, Assistant District Attorney Kristen Feden, feels like she already has enough of Cosby’s own words from his deposition in 2005 and from police reports when he was first investigated to prove that he did sexually assault Andrea Constand. She gave the first opening statement in the trial today and she said that, “Trust, betrayal and the inability to consent. That is what this case is about.”

In Mr. Cosby’s lawyer, Brian McMonagle’s opening statement he attacked Constand’s credibility, pointing out that a former district attorney in the same county had decided against bringing charges against Cosby in 2005 the first time he was accused. Mr. McMonagle said there are numerous inconsistencies in her statements to the police about the timing of events, about numerous meetings with him before the incident, and about her continued contact with him afterward, including a trip with her parents to see him perform at a resort outside Toronto. He also brought up the fact that after the alleged incident, Constand called Cosby numerous times. Phone records show that she called him about 53 times after the incident.

This trial is about a decade in the making and saw one of America’s most beloved TV dad fall from grace. Cosby met Constand in November 2002 when he attended a basketball game at Temple. Constand, who had been a high school basketball star in Canada, was the director of operations for the Temple women’s team at the time. Twelve years ago, Constand went to police to report that Cosby sexually assaulted her. Cosby is charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault for the night in January 2004 Cosby allegedly drugged her and then sexually assaulted her.
