Bill Cosby Says He Has No ‘Remorse,’ Claims His Trial Was a ‘Set Up’

”When I come up for parole, they’re not going to hear me say that I have remorse,“ Cosby told Black Press USA from prison

Bill Cosby, who is serving out a three to 10-year prison sentence for three counts of sexual assault, says he has no “remorse” about his actions and believes his trial was a “set up” with “imposters” for jurors.

“When I come up for parole, they’re not going to hear me say that I have remorse. I was there. I don’t care what group of people come along and talk about this when they weren’t there. They don’t know,” he said during a wide-ranging interview with Black Press USA from a maximum-security penitentiary in Pennsylvania.

Cosby was found guilty last year of drugging and sexually assaulting a woman, and a jury convicted him on three counts of aggravated indecent assault. Though the case centered on the experiences of one woman, at least 60 women have come forward to accuse the former entertainer of sexual assault.

But in conversations spanning across several phone calls, Cosby continued to assert he was not guilty of wrongdoing and pointed to how a potential juror allegedly overheard another juror say before the trial, “I just think he’s guilty, so we can all be done and get out of here,” as evidence that the trial was somehow a “set up.” (The juror was not ultimately removed from the trial.)

“It’s all a set up. That whole jury thing. They were imposters,” Cosby said.

“I know what they’ve done to my people. But my people are going to view me and say, ‘That boy looks good. That boy is strong,'” he added. “This is political. I can see the whole thing.”
