Speaking to Black Press USA, Cosby said, "I have eight years and nine months left. When I come up for parole, they're not going to hear me say that I have remorse."

"I was there," Cosby insisted.

"I don’t care what group of people come along and talk about this when they weren’t there. They don’t know." Cosby went on to say that the trial was unfair.

“It’s all a set up. That whole jury thing. They were imposters."

"Look at the woman who blew the whistle," Cosby said, referring to the potential juror who claimed she had overheard another member of the jury proclaim Cosby's guilt before the trial. "Then she went in and came out smiling, it’s something attorneys will tell you is called a payoff."

"I know what they’ve done to my people."

Cosby says he plans to maintain hope and strength, saying, "But my people are going to view me and say, ‘that boy looks good. That boy is strong.’"

"This is political. I can see the whole thing.”

Referring to his life in prison, Cosby referred to his cell as "my penthouse," and claimed, "I am a privileged man in prison."
