Bill Cosby has continued to speak out on his prison sentence. In a statement via his spokesperson Andrew Wyatt, the TV icon said that he has no remorse for his sexual assault convictions and called himself a "political prisoner."
The statement read, “Here’s why I, have no remorse and will never have remorse. I was given a deal; I settled out of court for $3.8 million dollars; I waived my 5th amendment rights; I was declared Not Guilty in 2005 by the Commonwealth – never charged. However, a low-life District Attorney and a corrupt Judge needed me Guilty now. Not for justice, but for their political aspirations. They say, ‘Mr. Cosby, you must attend these classes.’ Why? One word. Entrapment!”
He continued, “My political beliefs, my actions of trying to humanize all races, genders and religions landed me in this place surrounded by barb wire fencing, a room made of steel and iron. So, I now have a temporary residence that resembles the quarters of some of the Greatest Political Prisoners – Martin Luther King, Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Randal Robinson, and Dr. Benjamin Chavis. I stand upright as a Political Prisoner and I Smile. The Truth is Strong!”
