they annulled his sentence and he will be free

Cosby was sentenced in September 2018 to three to ten years in prison for sexual assault against Andrea Constand, an employee of Temple University, in 2004. The actor, who was serving time in a Phoenix jail, He was accused of drugging and raping Constand, in an episode that added to the avalanche of complaints of sexual assault that the former driver of The Bill Cosby Show faced in recent years, and that led to his ostracism from the screen and subsequent conviction.

The annulment of the sentence responds to an appeal that the Cosby defense wielded in 2020, and that was taken into account by the Pennsylvania state justice in two specific points, including a written agreement between a state prosecutor and Cosby himself.

According to the actor’s defense, Montgomery District Attorney Bruce Castor promised Cosby in 2006 that he would not be criminally prosecuted if he testified in an ongoing civil trial brought by Constand, the woman who accused him of rape. Cosby took the stand for four days in that dispute, and the lawsuit was settled with a financial conviction of more than $ 3 million. However, a new local prosecutor replaced Castor and charged the comedian criminally in 2015.

So far, two previous courts had refused to overturn Cosby’s sentence., that despite the evidence and the avalanche of complaints against him, he never admitted having had sex without consent with any woman.
