Bill Cosby to be Freed, Rape Trial Judged ‘Rigged’

Newsweek: Bill Cosby is set to be freed from prison after the Pennsylvania State Supreme Court issued an opinion to vacate his conviction.

Cosby’s lawyers had appealed to the court in December, arguing the life of the former actor and comedian was put on trial, and he suffered unquantifiable prejudice. The Supreme Court agreed to review two aspects of the case—one on the judge’s decision to let prosecutors call five additional accusers in addition to original accuser Andrea Constand, and another point regarding Cosby’s argument that he made an agreement with a former prosecutor that he would not ever be charged.

The 83-year-old has been in a state prison outside of Philadelphia after a jury convicted him in 2018 of three aggravated indecent assault counts. He was deemed a “sexually violent predator” who posed an “imminent safety risk to women.”

In the court’s opinion released today, the justices wrote: “There is only one remedy that can completely restore Cosby to the status quo ante. He must be discharged, and any future prosecution on these particular charges must be barred. We do not dispute that this remedy is both severe and rare. But it is warranted here, indeed compelled.”

“For these reasons, Cosby’s convictions and judgment of sentence are vacated, and he is discharged,” the opinion added.

  1. I remember I Spy and his comedy such as Why Is Their Air? Big fan, I know he is old, but will he apologies and make things better? What ever better is to those women.

  2. The arguments used by Cosby’s attorneys to overturn his conviction are so specious they’re laughable. The American legal system of “Just-Us” is so corrupt I would not be surprised if Cosby’s lawyers through legal obfuscation and corporate camouflage funneled several million dollars from Cosby’s estate into a private Cayman Islands banking account belonging to that judge under a shell cover. Normally, overturning a criminal conviction is as rare as hen’s teeth.

    • Well, actually, there is a constant news feed of the overturning of convictions. Tons.

      This case is about the prosectors making a deal like the one Acosta made with Epstein. This is the lens through which it should be viewed.

    • From the Department of “Just-TRYING-to-be-HELPFUL”:
      READ the Opinion. THEN provide an informed analysis…

  3. It was Jake Tapper who said yesterday that the US doesn’t have a justice system but instead it has a legal system.

    • That’s why Jake took his confused look to CNN. He reports stuff we already knew for years. Lawyers? Judges? Justice? Not all compatible in the USA.

    • It APPEARS that Jake could POSSIBLY be of the “I’m-White-and-I-SAY-SO” Denomination…

    • That’s funny ferdinand. Remember when Cochran was making the acquittal case in the court by purposely struggling to put on the glove that had been blood soaked but dried since, …. well let’s not elaborate …. Lol.

  4. Cosby was a fool, but the mainstream civil rights gang of freeloaders threw him under the bus. He talked too much about personal responsibility and other taboo topics. He should have learned from what happened to Malcolm X.

    • To Correct The Revisionist History:
      It WAS the “Mainstream Civil Rights’ Groups” that SUPPORTED Bill-The-White when he was going around with that Grey Suit and Shades on, talking about Black people “stealing pound cake” and needing “Hooked on Phonics.” Those “Nocturnals” had nothing but praise for Bill-The-White (i.e. Clarence Paige & Cynthia Tucker of AJC fame), and ESPECIALLY ALL the of Red White Supremacists (they had MUCH glee), and MANY of the Blue White Supremacists!
      Alas…Bill-The-White’s “friends” conspired against him. The “Just-US” System put A CASE on him! Always a solution for these “uppity” Black-LOOKING people! Imagine the audacity of a “NEEEE-GROW” attempting to buy NBC! He was shocked (“Shocked!”) because he was so sure the White Supremacists had “urinated” on him. Cosby was victimized by the 400-year White Supremacy “Just-Us” System. But although he DID deserve justice, he STILL AIN’T ’bout [email protected]#$%^&*…

  5. The language opens the door for civil, unless it was part of the deal.

    Still no new episode of Ray Donovan since the Kobe murder. I hope someone has kept an eye on Voight.
