Bill Cosby has been denied parole by the Pennsylvania Parole Board — for reportedly refusing to participate in a program for sexually violent predators.
Cosby is currently serving a 3-to-10-year sentence at a prison outside Philadelphia for drugging and sexually assaulting a former Temple University employee at his home in 2004.
The board’s letter said Cosby must “participate in and complete additional institutional programs,” and that his “failure to develop a parole release plan” and a “negative recommendation by the Department of Corrections” guided the board’s decision.

Once he has completed the program, they will review the decision.
But his spokesperson denies their claims.
“Mr. Cosby has vehemently proclaimed his innocence and continues to deny all allegations made against him, as being false, without the sheer evidence of any proof. Today, Mr. Cosby continues to remain hopeful that the Pennsylvania State Supreme Court will issue an opinion to vacate his conviction or warrant him a new trial,” Andrew Wyatt said in a statement to CNN on Thursday.
