PHILADELPHIA, Pa. – Bill Cosby’s wife is calling for a criminal investigation into the prosecutor behind his sexual assault conviction, saying the case was “mob justice, not real justice” and a “tragedy” that must be undone.
Camille Cosby commented on the case for the first time on Thursday in statement issued through a spokesman a week after her husband of 54 years was convicted of aggravated indecent assault.
Camille Cosby called her husband’s chief accuser, Andrea Constand, a liar.
She compared the dozens of other women who’ve accused her husband to “lynch mobs” and his treatment to that of Emmett Till, a 14-year-old black boy lynched in 1955 over false allegations he flirted with a white woman.
Prosecutors and Constand’s lawyers did not immediately respond to messages.
The 80-year-old Cosby is on house arrest while awaiting sentencing that could put him in prison for the rest of his life.
