Convicted sex attacker Bill Cosby has compared himself to Nelson Mandela as he prepares to potentially spend the rest of his days behind barsIn an interview with Page Six, he likened himself to Mandela was locked up for 27 year before his release in 1990. He went on to become South African president and penned the historic memoir Long Road To Freedom.
Cosby said: “I think back to the time when Camille and I went to visit Nelson Mandela in South Africa.
“I sat in that cell where he lived and I saw how he lived… So, if they send me to that place, then that’s what they will do, and I will have to go there.”
It comes as Janice Dickinson, who claims she was drugged and attacked by Cosby in Lake Tahoe in 1982, claimed he was faking blindness during his trial.
The former model and reality TV star told Good Morning Britain:”I believe his whole blindness was an act.
“In fact, he walked into the courtroom with a cane and he walked out without the use of a cane, with his thumbs up.
“He called out to one of my prosecution attorneys, who he called the ‘a-word’… my dream is to watch him walk out of that courtroom in handcuffs and serve the rest of his life behind bars.”
Dickinson, 63, testified at the trial of the American TV actor, accusing him of drugging and assaulting her at a hotel in Nevada.
His accuser Andrea Constand alleged Cosby drugged and molested her at his suburban Philadelphia mansion in 2004.
