Bill Cosby out of prison



…Freed of sex crime

ACE United States comedian, Bill Cosby, was yesterday freed from prison after Pennsylvania Supreme Court quashed his conviction for drugging and sexually assaulting a woman 15 years ago.

  The 83-year-old has since left SCI Phoenix in Philadelphia, where he was being incarcerated following his conviction.

  According to the court, Cosby was not only denied a fair trial in 2018 but should not have been charged or convicted of assaulting Andrea Constand at his Philadelphia mansion in 2004.

  “Cosby’s convictions and judgment of sentence are vacated, and he is discharged,” the judges wrote in a 79-page ruling.

  The judges also agreed that the “non-prosecution agreement” meant he should not have been charged.

  “He must be discharged, and any future prosecution on these particular charges must be barred. We do not dispute that this remedy is both severe and rare. But it is warranted here, indeed compelled,” they said.

  While Cosby’s conviction was the first guilty verdict for sexual assault against a celebrity since the advent of the worldwide reckoning against sexual violence and abuse of power dubbed the #MeToo movement, he insisted that the encounter with Constand was consensual.

  It will be recalled that Cosby shattered racial barriers with his Emmy-winning role on ‘I Spy’ in the 1960s, and then as a dad and doctor on the hit TV series ‘The Cosby Show’ two decades later.
