Bill Cosby To Walk Free After Court Overturns Sex Assault Conviction

Bill Cosby is set to be released from prison today after Pennsylvania’s highest court overturned his sexual assault conviction on Wednesday.

The 83-year-old had served more than two years of a three- to 10-year sentence at a state prison near Philadelphia.

In the ruling today, the state Supreme Court found that an agreement with a previous prosecutor prevented him from being charged for allegedly drugging and molesting Andrea Constand in 2004.

This new ruling bars any retrial in the case, court documents say.

Cosby was accused of drugging and molesting Constand at his estate in 2004. He was charged in 2015 for the alleged attack and arrested just days before the 12-year statute of limitations expired.
