Bill Cosby’s lawyer says he’s ‘feeling great’ after conviction
A spokesman for Bill Cosby defiantly claimed he’s “innocent” a day after jurors found him guilty of sexual assault — as his chief accuser broke her silence over the verdict.
Andrew Wyatt said the disgraced comedian is “feeling great” and spending time with long-suffering wife Camille following his conviction — which could ultimately prove to be a life sentence.
“He’s confident. Although he’s been found guilty, he’s innocent of these charges and he maintains his innocence,” Wyatt said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
“He’s going to walk around as a man who’s innocent because he didn’t do anything wrong. He’s confident because he didn’t do anything wrong. These are allegations that are decade-long allegations. These women have no evidence. They went to no authorities.”
Wyatt added, “I think these jurors got it wrong.”
Jurors in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, convicted 80-year-old Cosby of three counts of aggravated indecent assault for a 2004 attack on former Temple University staffer Andrea Constand.
Lawyers for Cosby — who faces as much as 30 years behind bars — said they plan to appeal.
Constand didn’t comment on the verdict Thursday, but she tweeted out a photo of her about to gleefully hug a sexual assault advocate.
On Friday, she thanked prosecutors for their work.
“A very profound and heartfelt thank you to the Commonwealth of PA, Montgomery County, for their service and sacrifices,” Constand tweeted. “Congratulations. Truth prevails.”
