Supreme Court Upholds Bill Cosby's Overturned Conviction
Bill Cosby‘s breathing a deep sigh of relief — the U.S. Supreme Court is refusing to weigh in on the Pennsylvania ruling that set him free.
SCOTUS voted 4-3 Monday to leave in place the PA Supreme Court’s decision from last summer … which nullified Cosby’s 2018 conviction for aggravated indecent assault of Andrea Constand.
Cosby was immediately released from the Pennsylvania prison where he’d been serving a 3 to 10-year sentence.
The PA Supreme Court ruled Cosby’s right to due process has been violated, because prosecutors had ignored the deal the previous Montgomery County D.A. made to not prosecute Cosby if he sat for a deposition in Andrea’s civil case.
Cosby’s prosecutors asked the U.S. Supreme Court to weigh in on the decision to overturn, but the high court declined … which means Cosby is free and clear in the criminal case.
He is still facing a lawsuit filed by Judy Huth for sexual battery.
