PHILADELPHIA, Pa. — Bill Cosby is set to be released from prison after Pennsylvania’s highest court overturned his sexual assault conviction on Wednesday.
On Wednesday, the state Supreme Court found that an agreement with a previous prosecutor prevented him from being charged for allegedly drugging and molesting Andrea Constand in 2004.
He was charged in 2015 after being arrested days before the 12-year statute of limitations expired. He was convicted in 2018 at his second trial, after a first trial ended in a hung jury.
More than 60 woman eventually accused the 83-year-old of sexually assaulting them, though the overwhelming majority of allegations never made it to court for a variety of reasons.
