The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has overturned Bill Cosby’s sex assault conviction.
The court said today that they found an agreement with a previous prosecutor prevented him from being charged in the case.
The 83-year-old Cosby has served more than two years at a state prison near Philly.
He has vowed to serve his full 10-year sentence rather than acknowledge any remorse over the 2004 encounter.
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.
The trial judge had allowed just one other accuser to testify at Cosby’s first trial, when the jury deadlocked. However, he then allowed five other accusers to testify at the retrial about their experiences with Cosby in the 1980s.
