BILL COSBY: Pennsylvania Supreme court overturns sex conviction

Bill Cosby

Bill Cosby’s sexual assault conviction has been overturned by Pennsylvania’s highest court.

The court said Wednesday that it found an agreement with a previous prosecutor that prevented him from being charged in the case.

The actor has served more than two years of a three- to 10-year sentence at a state prison near Philadelphia.

He had vowed to serve all 10 years rather than acknowledge any remorse over the 2004 encounter with accuser Andrea Constand.

Cosby, 83, who was once beloved as “America’s Dad,” was convicted of drugging and molesting the Temple University employee at his suburban estate.

Prosecutors did not immediately say if they would appeal or seek to try Cosby for a third time.
