HARRISBURG, Penn. — The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has accepted Bill Cosby’s appeal of his 2018 conviction.
The 82-year-old former actor and comedian was convicted for drugging and sexually assaulting a former Temple University employee at his home in 2004.
Cosby is less than two years into his 3-10 year sentence at a prison outside Philadelphia.
Tuesday’s ruling granted Cosby the ability to have the appellate court take a look at two issues in his case.
One issue focuses on five other women who testified about previous uncharged assaults, and the second issue focuses on the prior district attorney’s decision not to charge Cosby a decade ago.
