Camille Cosby releases fiery statement after sexual assault trial ends in hung jury

Just shortly after Bill Cosby's high-profile sexual assault case ended in a mistrial, wife Camille Cosby released a fiery statement.

Camille was not present at the courthouse Saturday morning, when the judge declared a mistrial after a jury said they were hopelessly deadlocked. The signed statement was read by Ebonee Benson, Camille Cosby’s publicist.

In the statement, Camille lashes out at the prosecutor and the media:

"How do I describe the District Attorney? Heinously and exploitively ambitious. How do I describe the judge? Overtly arrogant and 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 truth for the primary purposes for greedily selling sensationalism at the expense of a human life." 

The statement goes on to thank those jurors who "tenaciously fought to review the evidence."

Read the full statement below:

Throughout the dozens of sexual assault accusations Bill Cosby has faced over the years, Camille Cosby has remained steadfast in support of her husband.
