Bill Cosby will remain free as the appeal of his of his release is rejected.
The Supreme Court rejected a request from Pennsylvania prosecutors to revisit a judgment by Pennsylvania’s top court that reversed comedian Bill Cosby’s sexual assault conviction.
In 2018, Cosby was found guilty of aggravated indecent assault for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his home in Pennsylvania in 2004. He was given a state jail term ranging from three to ten years.
In June, he was freed from jail when the Texas Supreme Court reversed his sexual assault conviction, citing a violation of his due process rights. A former Montgomery County district attorney’s choice not to prosecute Cosby in 2005 in exchange for his deposition in a civil matter was eventually used against him at trial, according to the Pennsylvania state Supreme Court justices.
