Cosby says he doesn't expect to testify at sex assault trial

Cosby says he doesn't expect to testify at sex assault trial

However, his criminal trial is set to begin in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania where he faces three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault with each count carrying a maximum of 10 years.

'Could be, could be, ' Cosby told Smerconish.

Expressing support for her father, Ensa said in an audio statement Monday on popular radio show, The Breakfast Club, "I strongly believe my father is innocent of the crimes alleged against him and I believe that racism has played a big role in all aspects of this scandal".

Cosby, in the days leading up to his sexual assault trial, is talking publicly about his home life with his wife, Camille.

Bill Cosby suggested that racism may be partly responsible for the dozens of sexual misconduct allegations that have been lodged against him. "I believe in his innocence and I know how he values me". "Could be", even though the claimants are Black and White women.

Statements from two of Cosby's daughters, Ensa and Erinn, first aired Monday on The Breakfast Club, a morning show on a NY radio station that is syndicated across the country.

"I think that you can examine individuals and situations and they will come out differently", he said.

"You know better than that", Cosby said.

Last month, Cosby told the National Newspaper Publishers Association news service in an email interview that he hopes to resume his entertainment career after the trial. "I have no idea what he was thinking".

Another daughter, Evin Cosby, had issued a similar statement defending her father in April.




Cosby and his daughters seem intent on humanizing him and drawing attention to his philanthropic work.

Indeed, initially most, if not all, of Cosby's most prominent defenders were prominent black media figures like singer Jill Scott, actress Whoopi Goldberg and comedian Eddie Griffin.

"He complains about racial but what about the African-American woman whom I represent who accuse him of sexual assault or rape and refuse to remain silent about thaw they say they have suffered?"

"I pretended I was Michael Jordan", he said, referencing the basketball superstar known for taking charge on the court. As new allegations have come about, Cosby's legacy, including his monumental sitcom The Cosby Show, have been all but scrubbed from the pop culture lexion, not appearing in reruns damn near anywhere, primarily because of how the media has reacted to the story.

"You can't aim at jurors", Cosby said. Asked to respond, he said: "It could be".

"Once again, I go back to my lawyers", the comedian and actor said.

He also said he believed the many sex assault allegations lodged against him were made in effort to sway public opinion. Sometimes it's four or five.

Cosby said he does not want to give evidence because he fears trying to give a truthful answer without opening up "a can of something" while his lawyers "are scrambling".

At times during the interview, Cosby offered rambling or confusing responses.
