Bill Cosby Released From Prison

Bill Cosby is a free man after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court overturned his conviction.

The charge was tossed because of an agreement he had with a prior prosecutor that would have prevented Cosby from being criminally charged in the case. He cannot face a retrial.

His spokesperson said to reporters after Cosby was released.

“We want to thank the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. This is what we have been fighting for and this is justice and justice for Black America.”


The spokesperson added, “This is the justice Mr. Cosby has been fighting for. They saw the light. He was given a deal, and he had immunity. He should have never been charged.”

Cosby was accused of drugging and molesting Andrea Constand, the former Temple University employee at his estate in 2004. He was sentenced in 2015 to 3 to 10 years in prison. He was denied parole earlier this year for failing to attend a sex offenders course. Had he complete the course, he could have been released from prison even sooner.
