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."

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