*Bill Cosby has at least one family member willing to stand by his side amid a torrent of resurfacing sexual assault allegations.
The entertainer’s nephew told FarrahGray.com that he believes the decades-old allegations are nothing more than “unjustified claims.”
“I believe he is innocent and unless the judicial system can prove otherwise, I stand behind him and his contributions,” said Braxton A. Cosby, a married father of three from Atlanta.
Braxton Cosby is CEO of Cosby Media Productions, which he founded with cousin Leon Cosby III to be an entertainment production house that focuses on new intellectual properties in the areas of print, music, television and film.
When asked if his uncle was the victim of a “media lynching,” Cosby told FarrahGray.com: “I wouldn’t go as far as correlating it with the word ‘lynching,’ as that would imply some sort type of death being associated with the attack.
“In this case, my uncle and his legacy are still more alive and well than ever before. He is still performing and going about normal business despite the unjustified claims.
“I would be more inclined to compare it to the passage in the Bible where the people of the village were about to stone the woman caught in adultery and Jesus challenged them by saying that the person who without sin should cast the first stone. The one difference in this case being that the woman was caught in the act and her accusers brought her forward.”
More than a dozen women have stepped forward in recent weeks, alleging Bill Cosby doped, groped or raped them in encounters that stretch back decades.
