Bill Cosby has been sentenced to three to 10 years in prison for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, a former women’s basketball administrator for Philadelphia’s Temple University.
After the sentencing, Andrew Wyatt, the 81-year-old Cosby’s publicist claimed that his client — like President Donald Trump’s second Supreme court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh — is the victim of a “sex war." Judge Steven O’Neill (who sentenced Cosby) helped to carry the “war” out, Wyatt said.
In the Philadelphia suburb of Norristown, Pennsylvania on September 25, Wyatt told reporters, “What is going on in Washington today with Judge Kavanaugh is part of that sex war that Judge O’Neill, along with his wife, are a part of.”
Christine Blasey Ford, a 51-year-old psychology professor at Palo Alto University in Northern California, is alleging that Kavanaugh attempted to rape her at a party in 1982. And another woman, 53-year-year Deborah Ramirez, is alleging that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a dorm party when they were students at Yale University.
Wyatt, in Norristown, also claimed that the district attorney in Montgomery County outside Philadelphia used “falsified evidence against Dr. Cosby.”
“This is the most racist and sexist trial in the history of the United States,” Wyatt told reporters. “Dr. Cosby has been one of the greatest civil rights leaders in the United States for over the last 50 years.”
Wyatt added, “All three of the psychologists who testified against Dr. Cosby were white women who make money off of accusing black men of being sexual predators.”
Judge O’Neill ruled that with Cosby having been convicted of drugging and raping Constand, he will be officially classified as a violent sexual predator. Cosby has been accused of sexual assault and misconduct by dozens of other women, but many of their claims were unable to be adjudicated in court.
