NORRISTOWN, United States (AP) — Bill Cosby's wife is claiming a prosecutor used "falsified evidence" to win a conviction against him.

Camille Cosby released a statement after her husband was sentenced Tuesday to three-to-10-years in state prison for sexually assaulting a woman in 2004. She claims District Attorney Kevin Steele, at trial, presented doctored audio of a recorded phone conversation between Cosby and the accuser's mother. She says the defence team plans to raise the issue on appeal.

Steele rejected the allegation, saying: "It that's what they've got, it's beyond a hail Mary."

Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt, meanwhile, says the 81-year-old comedian is "doing great" after learning his sentence.

Wyatt says Cosby "knows that these are lies," adding: "You know what this country has done to black men for centuries."
