Andrea Constand talks about Cosby’s release

Original post:

Andrea Constand told CNN’s Chris Cuomo that Bill Cosby was released early from prison Friday because of the “special considerations” of his case.

Constand said the comedian “should have been in prison” and that she’s still in shock about the decision.

Constand, 39, who settled with Cosby in 2006, was not there for his release.

The now-68-year-old comedian is still guilty, she said.

“I’m angry. I’m hurt,” Constand said. “And I don’t like it. I don’t like it at all. And I don’t like it happening to Mr. Cosby.”

“This whole thing has left me with more questions than answers,” she told Cuomo. “I just want to know if this was my case, and this was exactly the circumstances and what Judge O’Neill was thinking — why hasn’t he kept him in? Why did he just release him so soon?”

Constand said that Cosby deserved to go to prison because his crimes were serious.

“I just can’t get my head around that,” she said. “Mr. Cosby did something really horrible. I just really don’t understand the special considerations and why they let him go. I’m absolutely beside myself.”

Cosby apologized to Constand in a statement he sent to the media in November 2017 after he was found guilty on three counts of aggravated indecent assault.

“I apologize to Ms. Constand and anyone else who was affected by the events that took place,” Cosby said. “I have never stopped believing in my innocence and hope one day the truth will prevail.”
