Bill Cosby’s Publicist Reacts To Sexual Assault Sentencing
Bill Cosby was sentenced on Tuesday to three to ten years for sexual assault and his publicist Andrew Wyatt has described the court’s decision as ‘racist’ and ‘sexist’.
Speaking outside the courthouse on Tuesday, Cosby’s publicist said, “This has been the most racist and sexist trial in the history of the United States.”
He further went on to characterize the three psychologists who testified as “white women who make money off accusing black men of being sexual predators”.
Wyatt also added that “They persecuted Jesus and look what happened ? Mr. Cosby is fine. He’s holding up well. Anyone who wants to say anything negative, you’re a joke as well.”

Andrew Wyatt isn’t the only one who feels that the court didn’t give a fair verdict. Cosby’s wife through a spokesperson accused the prosecutors of using “falsified evidence.”
In addition to his sentence, the disgraced comedian must register as a sex offender and pay a $25,000 fine on top of prosecution fees.
