Bill Cosby is going to be a free man Dash as soon as later today.
Cosby won a huge victory today (June 30) after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court vacated his 3-10 your prison sentence, ruling the comedian did not get a fair trial.
The 83-year-old was sentenced to the lengthy stay in prison after he was convicted in 2018 for allegedly drugging and raping Temple University staff member Andrea Constand.
Cosby served over two years in prison.
Just last month, he was denied parole but he remained hopeful that his sentence would be overturned, and today he was vindicated.
Bill Cosby’s lawyers had argued testimony from five women who claimed they were drugged by “America’s favorite dad” should not have been allowed.
Bill Cosby also had a prior agreement with a former prosecutor at the Montgomery County District Attorney’s office, who agreed not to bring charges if he sat down for a deposition.
However, the testimony was used against Cosby in a civil suit brought by Andrea Constand, which led to him being charged and convicted of three counts of aggravated indecent assault.
The Court ruled Bill Cosby’s Fifth Amendment rights had pretty much been violated after his deposition was used against him. Bill Cosby cannot face trial over the charges again.
