Bill Cosby granted right to appeal sexual assault conviction

Former comedian Bill Cosby has been granted the right to appeal his conviction on sexual assault charges.

The 82-year-old is almost two years into a 3-10 year sentence, after he was convicted of drugging and sexually assault a woman in 2004.

Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court has today ruled that Cosby can appeal two issues in the case.


It’s understood one is in relation to a witness who testified about prior alleged assaults, that were not part of the charges.

Cosby’s legal team argued their testimonies were dated and not related to the criminal charges therefore should not have been allowed in court.

The second is in relation to a decision made by a prior district attorney’s to not to charge Cosby over a decade ago.
