High-profile attorney Lisa Bloom -- who represents three of Cosby's accusers -- spoke out on behalf of her clients, with one of them being supermodel Janice Dickinson.

Releasing a statement, Bloom wrote, "The 3 Bill Cosby accusers I represent and I are disgusted that he is a free man today. He is not released because he is innocent."

"He is released because a prosecutor promised him years ago that he would not be brought to justice, without even making a deal for him to do time," she continued.

She also praised Dickinson, who testified against Cosby during his 2018 criminal trial. The model accused him of sexually assaulting her in 1982 during a trip to Lake Tahoe.

Bloom also shined a light on Andrea Constand, the Temple University employee whose story actually sent Cosby to prison

"And of course, the victim in the case, Andrea Constand, so dignified, so strong, answering every demeaning question. The conviction. We couldn't believe it: justice, a tiny bit, finally. And now this. A kick in the gut to victims and their advocates," Bloom wrote.

She urged other Cosby "victims" to speak up.

"Every day I fight for sexual assault victims and have to advise them of the ugly truth: the system still massively favors the rich and powerful. You need a superhuman level of strength and courage. Luckily many victims have it. Any other Cosby victims, time to come forward!" Bloom wrote.
