“As we have always said, and now the United States can see, this is not about justice for victims of alleged sexual assault, it’s all about the money. We believe the courts, as well as the court of public opinion, will follow the rule of law and clear Mr. Cosby of these alleged charges,” said Andrew Wyatt.

His time in prison

He was also ordered in a civil suit in Santa Monica, Calif., to pay $500,000 last June to a woman he sexually assaulted in 1975 when the victim was 16 years old.

During his early days in prison, Cosby didn’t want his wife to visit him. He spoke to her three times a day in bursts of three minutes each. He only saw his lawyers.

The rep also explained that at the time, Bill Cosby lost weight as soon as he entered the venue and had to go through a routine to keep fit. He woke up at 3:30 in the morning to exercise and avoided eating bread and sweets.

These new lawsuits were made possible because New York Governor Kathy Hochul signed into law a law that opens up a one-year period to file complaints that until now had been prohibited for exceeding a certain time frame.
