Bill Cosby released from prison after conviction overturned

BILL Cosby has been released from prison after the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania ruled to overturn his 2018 conviction on sexual assault charges.

The Pennsylvania State Supreme Court ruled that there was a violation of Cosby’s due process rights when he was convicted, after a previous prosecutor had declined to prosecute him in order to urge him to sit for a civil deposition instead – which was ultimately used against him in his criminal trial.

However, Lise-Lotte Lublin who accused Bill Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting her in 1989 when she was 23 years old said the comedian’s overturned conviction on a procedural technicality does not make him innocent.

Cosby was initially sentenced to 3-10 years in state prison.
