Pennsylvania’s highest court on Wednesday overturned Bill Cosby’s sexual assault conviction and ordered that he be released from prison immediately.

The decision by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court came after Cosby had served more than two years of a potential three- to 10-year sentence, following his 2018 conviction.

The court found that a previous prosecutor had made a deal with Cosby not to charge him in the case.

The comedian and actor was best known for his role as the lovable husband and father in the 1980s television comedy series “The Cosby Show,” earning him the nickname “America’s Dad.”

But his family-friendly reputation was shattered after dozens of women accused him of sexual assault over a period of decades. His conviction was widely seen as a landmark moment in the #MeToo movement that brought forth an array of allegations against powerful men in Hollywood and beyond.

Not really sure how this works, but can he now sue the state for wrongful confinement? What about damage to his reputation?

No and no.

Fox’s Geraldo Paints Cosby as Victim: How Will He Get His Two Years Back?​


Appearing on Fox News to discuss the explosive ruling, Rivera read off comments he made after Cosby was initially found guilty on three counts of aggravated indecent assault for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2018.

Noting that he predicted at that point that a higher court would toss out the conviction because he felt the judge went “way over the line in allowing unrelated victims’ testimony” during the trial, Rivera exclaimed: “What they did to this guy was mob justice!”

Yeah..."MOB Justice" sure seems to be in style these days, don't it?

You read that in the sun right?

If it is, as indicated, are YOU being racist or sexist or just part of "the Mob" here?

2 Plus 2 is so over so many mobish heads.

So, here’s what happened when Bill Cosby Tried to buy NBC​

The media speaks about the past of Bill Cosby as if he spent most of his younger years sleeping with young women. But this wasn’t all that he did. In fact, he did a great deal more, making the kinds of major moves rarely seen among any person of color at the time.

One of the things that Cosby attempted to do was make one of the biggest purchases in history, as he sought to buy NBC away from the General Electric Company, who were the owners at the time.

According to the New York Times, Cosby was very serious about trying to make the purchase, and felt confident that he could raise the funds to pull it off. At the time, Norman Brokaw was the man in charge of Cosby’s career. Brokaw was the CEO of the William Morris Agency, and he’d been Cosby’s personal agent for 30 years

Looks like maybe only MARXIST BLACK LIVES MATTER.

Phylicia Rashad Comes Out Swinging for Bill Cosby: “A terrible wrong is being righted- a miscarriage of justice is corrected!”

No one knows Cosby better than the soft spoken, smart, articulate Rashad, for whom I have a lot of respect. So far she has not said a word about the scandal that has engulfed Cosby and is systematically destroying his 50 year career and reputation.

So far.

Now, as the extraordinary “Selma” lunch– which featured a brilliant performance by Common and John Legend of their theme song, “Glory”– Rashad and I had a talk about Cosby. No less than Harry Belafonte and Ruben Santiago Hudson were hovering above us as we chatted. Let’s make something clear. Rashad, who is one of our greatest stage actresses, has kept quiet, didn’t seek me out, and even said “I don’t want to become part of the public debate.”

But knowing this she did say to me “I love him” about Bill Cosby. She stands defiantly behind him. She told me that in the years she’s known him, she has never seen the behavior alleged by the women who say they were drugged and raped, or sexually harassed.

Rashad said: “What you’re seeing is the destruction of a legacy. And I think it’s orchestrated. I don’t know why or who’s doing it, but it’s the legacy. And it’s a legacy that is so important to the culture.”

Rashad dismisses claims from both Beverly Johnson and Janice Dickinson. “Oh, please,” she said when their names came up. She also is quick to defend Camille Cosby. “This is a tough woman, a smart woman,” she told me. “She’s no pushover.” There is no question, Rashad said, that Camille Cosby has not been complicit or looked the other way as her husband terrorized women for the last 50 years.

She said, “Someone is determined to keep Bill Cosby off TV,” alluding to people other than the women. “And it’s worked. All his contracts have been cancelled.”

...but, but, but, the mob!

He pled guilty twice, the first time with the first prosecutor was for a plea deal, before Cosby's disposition, that if he tells the truth they won't go for a conviction. This is what the appeal court found in his favor not the narrative that he did nothing wrong that Cosby and company are trying to spin.

He is still a rapist that was set free

Quaaludes are NOT known as a date rape drug.


The revelation this week that Bill Cosby admitted under oath to buying quaaludes to give to young women to have sex rocked the entertainment world and added fuel to the allegations that the comedian had drugged and sexually assaulted several women. But it also raised the question: Why would Cosby, who had the ability to hire the best legal counsel money could buy, make such a damning admission in the first place?

It turns out that Cosby’s disclosure about the quaaludes—which came during a 2005 deposition— may not have been as legally explosive then as it appears now.

Benjamin Brafman, a prominent New York criminal defense attorney, who does not represent Cosby, said the partial transcript of the deposition released by the Associated Press does not show that Cosby violated a law. Cosby apparently obtained quaaludes through a prescription, the AP reported.

In the deposition, which stemmed from a sexual abuse case against Cosby filed by a former Temple University employee, Cosby was asked by a lawyer, “When you got the quaaludes [in the 1970s], was it in your mind that you were going to use these quaaludes for young women that you wanted to have sex with?” Cosby answered, “Yes.”

Brafman said the transcript is damaging to Cosby and “will haunt him for the rest of his life,” but it does not show that he committed a crime.

This is the type of thing that happens when someone " Not in the club", who is in a leading position that they have earned and wants to get bigger, oversteps their "Bounds".

How many dumb a$$ effe tards ( on this thread even) have used a bottle of booze ( OR OUTRIGHT CASH!!! ) to get laid the same ol, same ol, way I wonder, eh? Should we check the humpday thread to see?

This is hilarious; the moron who goes all "You're a Pedo!" to everyone who doesn't agree with him...

Defends rapists.

I am so not shocked.

As for the scumbag who got released on a technicality... the sooner he drops dead, the better. I'm just shocked his dead didn't happen in prison.

I think Mr. Cosby wants to be very, very careful as there are male relatives of the females he assaulted who could very easily be the accidental cause of an assassination!

Probably, for fame and money

Go spill McDees coffee on you now

People are opportunist and scammers these days

When you claim a crime happened to you 15 to 20 years later, and not at the time the crime occurred, you're a liar.
