Bill Cosby To Be Released From State Prison! Has Conviction Overturned

William Henry Cosby Jr. is an American former stand-up comedian, actor, and author who held an active career for over six decades before being convicted in 2018 of a number of sex offenses. The conviction was overturned by the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania in 2021.

‘Bill Cosby is about to be a free man after nearly three years in prison following a decision by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court vacating his 2018 conviction on three charges of aggravated indecent assault.

The comedian and actor has long maintained his innocence in the case, which stems from an accusation that he drugged and had sex with a Temple University employee in 2004.

The court ruling on Wednesday resulted from an agreement Mr Cosby struck with a district attorney, Bruce Castor, in 2005 wherein Mr Castor declined to prosecute Mr Cosby in exchange for the latter’s testimony during a civil trial.’
