Cosby Silent, But Attorney Speaks
[su_right_ad]Attorney for Bill Cosby, John P. Schmitt, says his client won’t dignify rape allegations that are “decades old” and “discredited.”
“The fact that they are being repeated does not make them true,” Schmitt said in a statement. “Mr. Cosby does not intend to dignify these allegations with any comment.”
That statement came one day after NPR broadcast an awkward interview with Cosby — awkward because Cosby did not utter one word when repeatedly asked about the charges against him…
Cosby, the iconic star of the classic TV sitcom “The Cosby Show,” has never been charged with a crime, and his representatives have steadfastly denied the accusations in the past.
But the allegations have resurfaced with momentum this month amid new news accounts, comments from comedians, and reactions on social networking websites. One of Cosby’s accusers, Barbara Bowman, spoke out in a number of interviews on CNN this week.[su_csky_ad]
