Bill Cosby and his wife, Camille, are lashing out at a judge in the ongoing battle over his criminal conviction.
Camille Cosby tells The Blast, “Now, after more than 50 years of work, that humanized the dehumanized; which also challenged the perpetual architects of racist, exploitive and greedy maneuvers that have enabled them to divide and conquer…my husband has been severely redefined by Judge O’Neill, despite having zero proof.”
Mrs. Cosby is referring to an opinion released Tuesday by Judge Stephen O’Neill where he defended his decision to let 5 sexual assault accusers testify during the 2018 trial, and said the cases had “chilling similarities.”
“In each instance, [Cosby] met a substantially younger woman, gained her trust, invited her to a place where he was alone with her, provided her with a drink or drug, and sexually assaulted her once she was rendered incapacitated,” O’Neill wrote, adding, “These chilling similarities rendered [their] testimony admissible.”
Camille says “Judge O’Neill, with a great deal of help from the media, has tried to turn Bill Cosby into one of the most insidious stereotypes of African American men…the brutal, black buck.”
Bill echoed his wife’s feelings, and told us, “I stand firmly with my wife on the foundation of solidarity and truth.” The 81-year-old convicted comedian says, “Camille has always been a fearless warrior against corruption and bigotry. She’s not afraid of this unethical judge, nor am I afraid of O’Neill’s grossly immoral tactics. Keep fighting…Dear…I Love You Very, Very Much.”
Cosby has been serving a 3 – 10 year prison sentence in Pennsylvania since last September.
