Attorneys for Bill Cosby said Wednesday that the criminal case against him is unjustified.

“The charge by the Montgomery County District Attorney’s office came as no surprise, filed 12 years after the alleged incident and coming on the heels of a hotly contested election for this county’s DA during which this case was made the focal point,” the attorneys said in a statement released after Cosby’s arraignment on charges of aggravated indecent assault Wednesday.

“Make no mistake, we intend to mount a vigorous defense against this unjustified charge and we expect that Mr. Cosby will be exonerated by a court of law.”
