Bill Cosby Freed From Prison After Court Overturns Sexual Assault Conviction

Bill Cosby Freed From Prison After Court Overturns Sexual Assault Conviction

US comedian Bill Cosby was freed yesterday after Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court overturned his sexual assault conviction.

Cosby (83) is best known for starring in the 1980s TV series The Cosby Show and was once known as “America’s Dad”.

He had served more than two years of a three to 10-year sentence at a state prison near Philadelphia after he was found guilty of drugging and molesting ex-basketball player Andrea Constand. 

 Dozens of women publicly accused Cosby of sexual assault, but he was only tried criminally for the incident against Andrea Constand.

His conviction in 2018 was widely seen as a landmark moment in the #MeToo movement.

In a verdict issued on Wednesday, Pennsylvania’s highest court found there was a “process violation” because Cosby’s lawyers had made an agreement with a previous state prosecutor that he would not be charged in the case.
