“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,” Camille Cosby wrote in a statement posted to her husband’s Instagram.”
Camille 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.”
Cosby, 81, has appealed — and recently accused O’Neill, who is white, of “racial hatred.”
Meanwhile, he is currently serving a three- to 10-year sentence for drugging and molesting Andrea Constand in 2004.
In his own statement on Instagram, Bill Cosby called his wife of more than 50 years “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,” he said.
