Philadelphia (AP) -The Pennsylvania Supreme Court overturned Bill Cosby’s sexual assault conviction on Wednesday after an agreement with a former prosecutor prevented charges in his case.
Cosby has been sentenced to three to ten years in state prisons near Philadelphia for more than two years. He vowed to serve all ten years, rather than admitting remorse for his encounter with the 2004 whistleblower Andrea Constand.
Formerly beloved as an “American dad,” Cosby, 83, was convicted of perverting an employee at Temple University in his suburban estate.
He was indicted in late 2015 and arrested a few days before the 12-year statute of limitations expired by a prosecutor, armed with newly unsealed evidence, a deposit that caused damage in Cosby’s proceedings.
