Meanwhile, Bill has just been expelled from the US Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

"This is mob justice, not real justice", the post, which was made public on May 3, read. "Bill Cosby was labelled as guilty because the media and accusers said so ... period".

Cosby was found guilty of drugging and sexually assaulting former Temple employee Andrea Constand at his home in 2004.

Camille released her statement while Bill is on house arrest awaiting sentencing. His lawyers have vowed to appeal.

"Twelve honorable jurors - peers of Cosby - have spoken", lawyer Dolores Troiani said. "There's nothing else to say".

Constand said in a tweet last week that "Truth prevails".

She compared Cosby's treatment to that of Emmett Till, a 14-year-old black boy lynched in 1955 over false allegations he flirted with a white woman.

The storms largely affected three districts in Rajasthan - Alwar , Bharatpur and Dholpur - where at least 31 people were killed. In UP, Agra district was the worst hit, accounting for 36 deaths and injuries to 35 others, officials said .

Judge Steven O'Neill criticized the media at a hearing on Tuesday for hounding jurors but conceded that a longstanding state Supreme Court ruling would nearly certainly force him to disclose the names. They cited a 90-day wait in the case of Casey Anthony, the Florida mother acquitted in 2011 of charges she killed her young daughter. News quoted several passages from Camille Cosby's statement, where she suggested that her husband was found guilty "because the media and accusers said so". Bill Cosby continues to deny all wrongdoing. They embraced, smiled and chatted, and he gave her a peck on the cheek. She left quietly, just before it was the prosecution's turn to deliver final remarks to the jury. Cosby wound up settling for almost $3.4 million after giving four days of depositions, including testimony about giving quaaludes to women before sex, that a juror said Monday was instrumental in his conviction.

She compared his treatment to Mr Till, the black teenager who was kidnapped and murdered after witnesses said he whistled at a white woman in a MS grocery store in 1955, and Darryl Hunt, a black man wrongly convicted of raping and killing a white woman in North Carolina in 1984.

She says that in her husband's case, "unproven accusations evolved into lynch mobs", which stripped Cosby of all forms of income and decimated his legacy.

Camille Cosby said her husband, once a beloved actor and comedian thought of as "America's Dad" for his role in a popular 1980s TV show, was railroaded by a self-serving system that she said demanded a criminal investigation of his prosecutors.

"Three criminal charges, promised during an unethical campaign for the district attorney's office, were filed against my husband...all based on what I believe to be a falsified account by the newly elected district attorney's key witness", she wrote.

Without mentioning him by name, Camille Cosby accused Montgomery County, Pennsylvania District Attorney Kevin Steele "and his cohorts" of advancing themselves professionally and economically at her husband's expense.
