Bill Cosby is appealing his 2018 sexual assault conviction. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has agreed to hear him on two points: 1) the Montgomery County Judge Steven O'Neill‘s decision to allow prosecutors to call five other accusers to the stand as “prior bad act” witnesses and 2) the judge’s decision to allow prosecutors to introduce evidence that he’d given women Quaaludes in the past.
The disgraced comedian is serving a 3-10 year sentence for sexual assault after a jury found him guilty of drugging and attacking Andrea Constand in 2004. Five accusers who were unable to press charges, including Janice Dickinson, testified against Cosby, and shared their stories of his attacks on them.
They also heard evidence that Cosby had given them a sedative before having sex with them. The Court will also look at an agreement that Cosby had with former Philadelphia District Attorney Bruce Castor granting him immunity from prosecution.
