PHILADELPHIA — Bill Cosby says he ‘‘will never have remorse’’ for the assault that sent him to prison because he considers his conviction the work of ‘‘a low-life district attorney and a corrupt judge.’’

Cosby was convicted last year on three counts of aggravated indecent assault on a woman in 2004. Dozens more women have publicly accused the actor of sexual assault.

Cosby’s stance could leave him to serve the high end of a three- to 10-year prison term, since sex offenders often must show remorse to win parole.

Spokesman Andrew Wyatt says Cosby is prepared to stay in prison rather than apologize for a 2004 encounter he considers consensual.

Cosby in a statement calls himself a political prisoner in keeping with Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi. Wyatt says the legally blind, 81-year-old actor dictated the statement for NBC-TV to his wife Camille during a phone call Tuesday night from a suburban Philadelphia prison.
