After a wild trial filled with accusations, the Bill Cosby sexual assault trial was declared a mistrial after jurors could not reach a verdict. Now, Cosby's wife Camille has spoken out in a prepared statement.
As pointed out by Variety, in the note, which was shared from Bill's Twitter account, Camille lashes out at the District Attorney, the judge, prosecutors and media outlets she says "omitted the truth."
"How do I describe the District Attorney? Heinously and exploitively ambitious," Camille wrote. "How do I describe the judge? Overtly and arrogantly collaborating with the District Attorney. How do I describe the counsels for the accusers? Totally unethical. 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 then continued on, praising jurors who had believed in Bill's innocence and reiterating her belief that her husband is telling the truth.
"Historically, people have challenged injustices," she wrote. "I am grateful to any of the jurors who tenaciously fought to review the evidence; which is the rightful way to make a sound decision. Truth can be subdued, but not destroyed."
