Bill Cosby’s sex assault conviction overturned by court

30 June 2021

Pennsylvania’s highest court has overturned comedian Bill Cosby’s sex assault conviction.

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

The 83-year-old has served more than two years at a state prison near Philadelphia.

Cosby who was once beloved as “America’s Dad,” was charged in 2015 when a prosecutor armed with new evidence arrested him days before the 12-year statute of limitations expired.
