Bill Cosby's Wife Camille Breaks Silence Following Guilty Verdict

Camille made her thoughts known about Bill's guilty verdict over charges of sexual harassment and assault in a lengthy three-page statement posted on the actor's Facebook page.

As for Constand, Camille Cosby wrote: "I firmly believe her recent testimony during trial was perjured".

"Twelve honorable people - a jury of Cosby's peers - have spoken", Troiani said.

Judge Steven O'Neill criticized the media at a hearing on Tuesday for hounding jurors but conceded that a longstanding state Supreme Court ruling would nearly certainly force him to disclose the names.

Yet, the tone of her statement underscored the fiercely protective role Camille Cosby has played in shaping her husband's career and public image for more than five decades.

Cosby's wife appeared at his retrial only once, to hear closing statements from the defense.

She also calls the accusers who came forward and the media that published their accounts as a "vicious, lying, self-absorbed paradigms of evilness". Camille also compared her husband to other blacks mistreated by the justice system, including Darryl Hunt, an African-American who served 19 years in jail for a murder he did not commit. McMonagle later parted ways with Bill Cosby before his second trial.

When it was the prosecution's turn to argue, she left the courtroom, and Constand entered. Cosby wound up settling for almost $3.4 million after giving four days of depositions, including testimony about giving quaaludes to women before sex, that a juror said Monday was instrumental in his conviction. Another referred to Camille as an "a**hole" for going after Bill Cosby's alleged victims, and covering for a man who stands as her "meal ticket".

She compared his treatment to Till, the black teenager who was kidnapped and murdered after witnesses said he whistled at a white woman in a MS grocery store in 1955, and Darryl Hunt, a black man wrongly convicted of raping and killing a white woman in North Carolina in 1984.

Mrs. Cosby saved her angriest barbs for the Montgomery County district attorney's office of Kevin R. Steele.

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".

"How do I describe the district attorney? If they can do this to Mr. Cosby, they can do so to anyone".

Camille Cosby's statement Thursday was equally biting and directed her ire at numerous same targets. "This is a homogeneous group of exploitive and corrupt people, whose primary objective is to advance themselves professionally and economically at the expense of Mr. Cosby's life". It's dozens and dozens of women who said the comedian drugged and sexually abused them.
