Bill Cosby files new appeal in Pennsylvania Supreme Court
Bill Cosby has filed for an appeal in the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.
In court docs filed on Tuesday, his attorney argues that his trial was not fair because it allowed five accusers to give “decades-old” testimony that prejudiced the jury against him.
They also argue it was “unfair” to have included a deposition he gave in an old civil suit “regarding [Cosby’s] use of quaaludes and his sexual behavior” because the disgraced comic believed the testimony was essentially immune from prosecution.
He was convicted in 2018 of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004 — and he has more than 50 other accusers. He’s served two years of a three- to 10-year sentence.
