Bill Cosby of the lawyers will fight to cancel his sexual assault conviction Monday at age 82, the comedian serves a period of three to 10 years imprisonment in Pennsylvania. ?
Cosby was the first celebrity judged and convicted in the #MeToo era. He insists on the sexual encounter with a young woman seeking advice on the career was consensual.
A jury last year showed Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her at her Philadelphia suburb real estate in 2004.
Defense counsel say that the trial judge erred by allowing five other accusers to testify to reinforce the prosecution’s arguments.
The three judges of the panel’s Superior Court include two female jurists. The group is not scheduled to rule for several months.
The decision will be followed closely by both sexual assault victims and lawyers for Harvey Weinstein and other high-profile men accused of similar misconduct.
