Bill Cosby filed an appeal of his sexual assault conviction, as he believes the five women who testified against him during his second trial should have never been allowed to be heard by the court.

Cosby now claims that his alleged assault on Andrea Constand and the other women are too far apart and "remote and unduly excessive."

Cosby's lawyers also argue the commonwealth previously agreed he would never be prosecuted for the allegations in the deposition, per CNN.

"This filing is an important step in ensuring that Mr. Cosby receives a hearing from a fair and impartial court," Cosby's spokesman Andrew Wyatt said in a statement. "The Constitution guarantees that right to Mr. Cosby — and to all Americans — and he looks forward to securing justice in the court of appeal."

Cosby, 81, is serving three to 10 years in a Pennsylvania state prison for drugging and sexually assaulting Constand in his home 15 years ago.
