Bill Cosby appeal to be heard at the Pennsylvania Supreme Court

25th June 2020

While Two lower courts previously refused to overturn the Bill Cosby conviction, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has agreed to hear two-point in the appeal from the 2018 sexual assault conviction.

The comedian was convicted in April 2018 of three counts of indecent assault and battery for drugging and sexually assaulting former Temple University employee Andrea Constand in 2004. He was sentenced to three to 10 years in state prison in September 2018.

Prosecutor Kevin R. Steele issued a brief statement on Tuesday:

"The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has narrowed the issues on appeal, limiting them to prior bad acts and the sovereign edict. We look forward to the briefing and arguing these issues and remain confident in the Trial Court and the Superior Court's previous decisions."
