The Pennsylvania Supreme Court said it will accept Bill Cosby’s appeal of his 2018 conviction, creating a possibility of his sex offender conviction getting overturned.
Bill Cosby will get a chance to fight his sexual assault conviction in court as he’s spent the last two years in prison where he’s maintained his innocence. He’s currently serving his 3 to 10-year prison sentence.
The Supreme Court is, however, limiting its review of Cosby’s case to two key aspects of the case that his lawyers challenged on appeal, according to the Associated Press.The first involves the judge’s decision to let prosecutors call five other accusers and introduce evidence that Cosby had given quaaludes to women in the past.
“As we have all stated, the false conviction of Bill Cosby is so much bigger than him — it’s about the destruction of ALL Black people and people of color in America. We’re extremely thankful to our attorneys (Brain Perry, Jennifer Bonjean & Barbara Zemlock) for their tenacious efforts in fighting for the vindication of Mr. Cosby.”
