Camille Cosby rips prosecutors following husband’s mistrial
Bill Cosby’s wife Camille slammed prosecutors after a mistrial was declared in the criminal case against her husband.
“How do I describe the District Attorney? Heinously and exploitively ambitious. How do I describe the judge? Overtly and arrogantly collaborating with the District Attorney. How do I describe the counsel for the accusers? Totally unethical,” Camille Cosby said in a statement.

The comedian’s wife also took aim at the media, whom she accused of “selling sensationalism” during the sexual assault trial.
“How do I describe many, but not all, general media? Blatantly vicious entities that continually disseminated intentional omissions of truths for the primary purpose of greedily selling sensationalism at the expense of a human life,” she continued.
Camille Cosby’s comments came after the judge declared a mistrial after the jury of five women and seven men said they were deadlocked and unable to reach a unanimous verdict.
District Attorney Kevin Steele has pledged to move the case forward, and declined to comment on Camille Cosby’s statement.
Dozens of women have come forward to accuse Bill Cosby of sexual misconduct. Cosby’s publicist declared that “Mr. Cosby’s power is back” following the mistrial.
