Bill Cosby's Conviction Was Overturned On a Technicality

Bill Cosby is getting out of prison after spending three years of his three- to 10-year sentence behind bars. In 2018, a Pennsylvania jury found Cosby guilty on three counts of sexual assault for his attack on Andrea Constand after hearing from six women total who accused Cosby of a similar pattern of assault. Now, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has overturned Cosby’s conviction, citing that additional testimony as part of its reasoning for doing so and striking a harsh blow for those who hope that sexual assault survivors’ bravery in coming forwarded will be rewarded with justice.
