‘Cosby’s spokesman, Andrew Wyatt, described it as;
‘A Beautiful Day For Women,’
Cosby thanked the Pennsylvania Supreme Court for their shock decision to free him, only three years into his 10 year sentence for sexual assault.”
‘We were not consulted or asked our thoughts by Mr Castor concerning any agreements concerning immunity or anything, and we were not made aware if there were any such discussions,’ Constand said.
Cosby’s spokesman, Andrew Wyatt, described it as ‘a beautiful day for women,’ and Cosby himself on Wednesday evening thanked the Pennsylvania Supreme Court for their shock decision to free him, only three years into his 10 year sentence for sexual assault.
Wyatt, described his release as ‘justice for black America’ – enraging many of Cosby’s accusers.
Wyatt told The New York Post: ‘It’s a beautiful day, not just for Bill Cosby because this is about all Americans, making sure that they get justice.
‘And you know, this was a fight for justice. And that’s what I fight for every day – justice and vindication for people done wrong by the judicial system.’
More than 60 women have accused Cosby of sexual assault, but Wyatt continued: ‘It’s a beautiful day, and it’s a beautiful day, also for women.
‘Millions of supporters and millions of women have gotten in touch with us and said ‘We know these women made up these allegations. We know it’s not true,’ he alleged.
‘But the beauty of today, another great thing, they can no longer call him a sexual violent predator. No longer call him a rapist. No longer call him these horrible things. He’s now Bill Cosby, an American and national treasure.’
Cosby was freed on the grounds that a former prosecutor promised him that he wouldn’t be charged in 2005.
That saw Cosby speak openly about his relationship with Constand for a civil suit, whose depositions were later used by another prosecutor to file criminal charges.
The disgraced comedian tweeted: ‘I have never changed my stance nor my story. I have always maintained my innocence.
‘Thank you to all my fans, supporters and friends who stood by me through this ordeal. Special thanks to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court for upholding the rule of law. #BillCosby’
The decision to free Cosby – once known as ‘America’s Dad’ – has ‘shocked and disgusted’ his accusers.
Former federal prosecutor Neama Rahman described the ruling as ‘mind-blowing’, adding: ‘This is extremely rare. This is unprecedented.’
Former Congresswoman Katie Hill tweeted: ‘On today’s episode of How the Justice System Fails Victims: Bill Cosby is released on a technicality.’
