Cosby Lawyers Continue to Fight

Bill Cosby’s lawyers are fighting to overturn his sexual assault conviction today as the 82-year-old comedian serves a three- to 10-year prison term in Pennsylvania.
Cosby was the first celebrity tried and convicted in the #MeToo era. He insists the sexual encounter with a young woman seeking career advice was consensual.
A jury last year found Cosby drugged and molested her at his suburban Philadelphia estate in 2004. Defense lawyers contend the trial judge erred in letting five other accusers testify to bolster the prosecution’s case. A three-judge Superior Court panel is hearing arguments today but is not expected to rule for several months.
