Bill Cosby's Wife Calls His Guilty Verdict Mob Justice

Bill Cosby's Wife Calls His Guilty Verdict Mob Justice

She went on to call out the "falsified account" by the district attorney.

Camille Cosby paralleled her husband to other black men wrongfully convicted of crimes, and Cosby's lawyers said they would appeal the conviction. The killers, meanwhile, were acquitted.

The post Bill Cosby's Wife Calls His Guilty Verdict Mob Justice appeared first on The Herald Nigeria Newspaper.

Camille Cosby stayed away from both of her husband's trials, except for the defense's closing arguments.

In fact, she compared him to an actual victim of a lynch mob, Emmet Till, the black teenager who was lynched in 1955 after a white woman falsely claimed he was flirting with her. A key difference from the first trial to the second was that the second time around, five other women who said Cosby also assaulted them were allowed to give testimony.

When it was the prosecution's turn to argue, she left the courtroom, and Constand entered.

The 74-year-old Camille also accused the media for the negative insinuations heaped on her husband's reputation that she said contributed to his fate in court.

"How do I describe the district attorney?"

Mr Modi said that the Kalaburagi people can bear the scorching heat, they could no longer stand congress government. While addressing the rally, PM Modi said, "Congress doesn't respect the sacrifices of our soldiers".

However, Camille Cosby is now asking for a criminal investigation of District Attorney Kevin Steele "and his cohorts", describing them as "a homogenous group of exploitative and corrupt people" whose "primary goal is to advance themselves professionally and economically at the expense of Mr. Cosby's life".

More than 50 women have accused Bill Cosby of sexual abuse that stemmed from him drugging them and then taking advantage of them while they were knocked out.

Her statement did not address behavior Cosby has admitted to, such as philandering and contention that he was having a consensual affair with Constand.

But Constand's attorney, Dolores Troiani, dismissed the statement when contacted for her response. "There's nothing else to say".

Cosby's lawyers told the jury during his retrial that he was not a criminal but rather a "lonely and troubled" philanderer.

"Bill Cosby was labeled as guilty because the media and accusers said so... period", she wrote.

Jurors in the case, in their own statement, said earlier this week that they unanimously arrived at a far different conclusion after hearing Constand confront Cosby in court over two days. "And each one of us found her account credible and compelling".

In the case of Bill Cosby, unproven accusations evolved into lynch mobs, who publicly and privately coerced cancellations of Bill Cosby's scheduled performances; syndications of "The Cosby Show"; rescissions of honorary degrees and a vindictive attempt to close an exhibition of our collection of African American art in the Smithsonian Museum of African Art. "In 1955, she testified before a jury of white men in a MS courtroom that a 14-year-old African American boy had sexually assaulted her, only to later admit several decades later in 2008 that her testimony was false".
