Bill Cosby Wants To Revive Comedy Career After Sexual Assault Trial
Bill Cosby hopes to revive his career following his forthcoming sexual assault trial.
Cosby, who has been accused by over 40 women of sexual assault, recently spoke to The National Newspaper Publishers Association, where he not only admitted that he is now fully blind but looks forward to reviving his career after the trial is done.
“I think about walking out on stage somewhere in the United States of America and sitting down in a chair and giving the performance that will be the beginning of the next chapter of my career,” Cosby said. “I miss it all and I hope that day will come. I have some routines and storytelling that I am working on.”
Cosby is charged with three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault related to a 2004 case involving Andrea Constand, an employee at his alma mater, Temple University.
Constand said she went to his home in a Philadelphia suburb for a career consultation, and he gave her a mix of pills and wine that left her incapacitated and unable to consent to sex.
Each charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, meaning that Cosby could serve 30 years in prison if convicted on all charges.
“The public persecution of my dad, my kids’ grandfather, and the cruelty of the media and those who speak out branding my father a ‘rapist’ without ever knowing the truth and who shame our family and our friends for defending my dad, makes all of this so much worse for my family and my children,” Evin wrote in a letter sent to Black Press USA. “When people are so quick to cast hate and make accusations of horrific violence against my dad, they are callous in their carelessness about the harm they are causing to others.”
