The lawyers of Bill Cosby (81) have started the procedure with which they appeal against the conviction of the comedian. The legal team of The Cosby Show star condemned for sexual abuse raises eleven points in which, according to them, the trial was not fair.
The lawyers objected, among other things, to the extra accusers that judge Steven O’Neill had spoken during the trial, which only concerned the drugging and abuse of Andrea Constand. They also find that Cosby has been treated unfairly because O’Neill has sent the jury samples of a testimony of the comedian in a civil case.
Cosby was sentenced to three to ten years in prison in September. His team also demands that he can wait for his profession in freedom. The usual procedure in the state of Pennsylvania, where the lawsuit took place, is that the judge makes his arguments clear before a higher court examines the appeal.
