Bill Cosby’s New Bail Application Accuses Judge Of ‘Racial Hatred’
Bill Cosby’s lawyers filed a bail application on behalf of the comedian noting that the judge who handed down his prison sentence was racially biased.
Bill Cosby’s lawyer’s posted a statement to his Instagram account, claiming that judge Steven O’Neill found Cosby guilty because he is black.
“His dishonorable conduct makes me smile, because this judge is being exposed, and it shows that this is bigger than me,” the post read. “O’Neill now has his formula: tried, true and tested to destroy any black man and/or colored man In America.”
The attorney’s filed the petition for his release and said that O’Neill displayed “racial hatred” toward Cosby.
As we reported, Cosby is facing three- to 10-years in a prison after over 60 women came forward claiming to have been sexually assaulted by him.
“Judge Steven T. O’Neill continues to show his disgust and prejudice towards Mr. Cosby,” his lawyers added. “Judge O’Neill is purposely denying Mr. Cosby the right to file his appeal.”
“We’re asking that this scandalous judge be removed immediately, and Mr. Cosby be granted bail throughout the appeals process, because the judge’s racial hatred towards Mr. Cosby, clouds his better judgement to be a good steward of the bench.”
When he was initially sentenced, O’Neill deemed Cosby as a “sexually violent predator,’’ and refused to grant him bail.
