Bill Cosby turns to Pennsylvania Supreme Court in fresh bid to quash conviction
New York - Comedian Bill Cosby is appealing a Pennsylvania court's
ruling last month that upheld the 82-year-old's April 2018 sexual
assault conviction, according to ABC News.
Among the objections Cosby would like the state's Supreme Court to
consider is that the case against the former actor went to trial
despite an earlier agreement with prosecutors that it would not.
Cosby's defense team also takes issues with a handful of witnesses
who were allowed to testify against him.
The appeal was filed Thursday. Pennsylvania's State Superior Court
upheld the 2018 decision on December 10. The state's Supreme Court is
not obligated to hear Cosby's latest appeal
He could serve up to a decade behind bars. Cosby, who has an Emmy,
Grammy and Presidential Medal of Freedom, will spend his remaining
years as a registered sexual predator if his appeal is unsuccessful.
