Cosby calls himself a 'political prisoner' like Gandhi or MLK Jr

Bill Cosby arrives at the Montgomery County Courthouse on the first day of sentencing in his sexual assault trial

The Blast got its hands on a statement from Bill, through his attorney, Andrew Wyatt that details why he as no remorse and why he "will never have remorse" for his sentencing. However, a low-life District Attorney and a corrupt Judge needed me Guilty now. But Wyatt says Mr. Cosby prefers it to receive little to no visitors.

In his statement, Cosby compares his time in prison to the sentences of Nelson Mandela and Gandhi while at the same time saying he has no remorse for any of his actions.

'So, I now have a temporary residence that resembles the quarters of some of the Greatest Political Prisoners - Martin Luther King, Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Randal Robinson, and Dr. Benjamin Chavis'.

Perhaps that attitude stems from Cosby's belief that he is a political prisoner. "The Truth is Strong!"

The disgraced comedian is now serving three to ten years in a Philadelphia maximum security prison after being convicted last year for drugging and sexually assaulting his friend Andrea Constand in 2004. Amy Worden, press secretary for the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections, told KTLA-TV, a CW affiliate in Los Angeles, Cosby is in a single cell without a cellmate.


As reported, his wife of more than 50 years, Camille, hasn't visited him and doesn't plan to.

Wyatt described Cosby's survival strategies behind bars after first speaking to NBC affiliate WCAU-TV in Philadelphia. "He said they told him if he was going to continue to fight for civil rights, something like this was bound to happen, and he's been preparing for it and he knows he's in prison not for rape, but for infidelity", Wyatt told Washington Informer.

"He's mentally strong. He's just a strong man", he added. However, Cosby does speak to Camille three times a day for three minutes a call - the maximum amount of time he can spend on the phone.

Wyatt told CNN last week that Cosby is living largely separated from other inmates, except that he has helpers who guide him around because of his vision problems.
