Bill Cosby has blasted the case that landed him in prison, insisting it was a clown show orchestrated by prosecutors.
In his first interview since he was sentenced last year for sexual assault, the comedian, entrepreneur and educator maintained his innocence and said he spends his time behind bars mentoring other inmates. Listen to full interview after the jump.
“I have eight years and nine months left,” Cosby told the National Newspaper Publishers Association’s BlackPressUSA.com. “When I come up for parole, they’re not going to hear me say that I have remorse. I was there. I don’t care what group of people come along and talk about this when they weren’t there. They don’t know.”
Cosby spoke with NNPA — a collection of black-owned community newspapers — by phone from SCI-Phoenix, a maximum-security penitentiary near Philadelphia. Do y’all agree with Mr. Cosby? Feel free to chime in on the discussion on our Instagram page @AllDatNoise thanks.
