Bill Cosby’s sex assault conviction overturned by court

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Pennsylvania’s highest court has overturned comedian Bill Cosby’s sex assault conviction.

The court said Wednesday that they found an agreement with a previous prosecutor prevented him from being charged in the case. The 83-year-old Cosby has served more than two years at a state prison near Philadelphia.

He has vowed to serve his full 10-year sentence rather than acknowledge any remorse over the 2004 encounter.

Cosby, who was once beloved as “America’s Dad,” was charged in 2015 when a prosecutor armed with new evidence arrested him days before the 12-year statute of limitations expired.

  1. More wealthy being afforded the luxury of not being held accountable for their actions. I get it the procedural blunder that occurred, but I also find it funny that it was ok in civil but when it came to criminal it was not ok. Double standards for the rich and famous. Tell me again how there isn’t two different Judicial policies for the haves to what is given to the have-nots. The more our nation continues to lose touch with the “will of the people” the more these occurrences will continue to transpire. Celebrities, Entertainers, Famous athletes, Corporate business heads, Wealthy, politicians, and elected officials are never held to the same standard as the rest of the common populace. Absolute power corrupts absolutely, now more than ever here in America’s plutocracy.
