Bill Cosby’s wife, Camille, is proving that she is standing by her recently incarcerated husband by blasting the judge who decided to reject his appeal.
According to Page Six, Camille released a statement on Wednesday (October 24), slamming the “biased” Montgomery County Court Judge Stevel O’Neill, who oversaw her convicted husband’s case and supported his prison sentence.
The site reports that she “rehashed the defense’s rejected appeals arguments, again dredging up decades-old allegations that O’Neill and the former Montgomery County DA, Bruce Castor, were involved in a political feud” that negatively affected the former TV dad’s proceedings.
“An unethical judge sentenced my husband to prison for a charge that the former DA determined was unwarranted and would never be prosecuted,” she wrote, referencing Castor’s 2005 decision not to charge Bill Cosby after accuser Andrea Constand reported that he drugged and sexually assaulted her that previous year.
“That same judge has hidden the truth about his feud with Mr. Castor for years, most recently by denying my husband’s attempt to put Mr. Castor on the stand before sentencing,” her statement continued.
The site specified that Camille Cosby’s words are addressed to “media outlets who published one-sided stories and/or who refused to give any coverage to our legal filings.”
Throughout all of this, Bill Cosby remains in jail at the State Correctional Institution Phoenix in Pennsylvania.
