Bill Cosby's Lawyer Defends Him: He's 'Not Guilty,' Won't Take a Plea Deal (Video)

One of Bill Cosby‘s lead attorneys, Monique Pressley, went on the Today show on Thursday (December 31) to defend her client after being charged with sexual assault.

“If you look at the deposition itself then you’ll see there’s no admission of criminal wrongdoing with respect to Mr. Cosby,” his lawyer said. “My client is not guilty. And there will be no consideration on our part of any sort of arrangement.”

“I have confidence in that system of justice, and as I’ve said in any number of interviews on this network and elsewhere, I believe when you separate what happens in a court of law from what has been allowed to happen in the fictional court of public opinion, you will get an outcome that justice requires,” Monique continued.

When asked how the 78-year-old comedian is doing at this time, Monique responded, “I can’t testify really about his state of mind, personally. He’s been accused unjustly of a crime, so certainly that’s upsetting. But he’s in good spirits and he knows he has a legal team that is intent on defending him until he’s exonerated.”
