Disgraced comedian and actor Bill Cosby is set to be released from prison after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court court moved to overturn his sexual assault convictions and called for his immediate release from confinement.

Cosby was sentenced to prison in 2018 for aggravated assault after numerous women came forward and accused him of criminal sexual acts. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court announced they have found an agreement with a previous prosecutor that prevented Cosby from being charged in the case, and so his conviction has been vacated

I think he is yesterday's news. MSNBC barely mentioned what would have been the story of the day a few years ago.

Freed on a technicality, not because he is innocent!

Let us hope he goes quietly into that good night, appreciates his new found freedom, and keeps his mouth shut.

He's 84 years old in a couple weeks.  Time to sit on the porch sipping lemonade and regretting your numerous criminal actions.

Criminal actions that were never proven to have occurred.  With the left, it is not the innocence or guilt that matters, it's the seriousness of the accusation

The jury believed he was guilty. 

He is being let off on a technicality.

The criminal actions were proven "beyond a reasonable doubt" enough that a jury convicted him of the crimes. He is now being released because a previous prosecutor had made an agreement with him that he wouldn't be charged. He is being released on a technicality, not because he wasn't proven guilty.

Actually they were admitted to in a civil suit, so they were proven.

What he's being released for is simply a Prosecutor providing an assurance (a lie in reality) that whatever was said in the civil suit would not be used in the criminal trial.  

Now, considering that the PA Supreme Court has found that the prosecutor lied and that impacted the criminal prosecution, will the prosecutor be held culpable by the PS bar and admonished or disbarred?

Bill Cosby is 84 years old and at some point his age will enter into any considerations about what should happen to him. 

I believe there were dozens of women who claimed Cosby had sexually assaulted them. The vast majority of them did not want to accuse him in court for thier own personal reasons.  Maybe some prosecutor where statue of limitations havent expired will persuade one or more of those women to participate in a prosecution. 

If that is what people still want. My own feeling is he is a very old man who is in lifelong disgrace and has done some prison time. 

Maybe everyone move on. He will never get his reputation back.

[deleted] this isn't a political issue. And he was found guilty, this technicality does not mean he is innocent.

Sounds like you think he is guilty.

Is it not reasonable (in your mind) to accept the verdict of a trial unless you have persuasive evidence to the contrary?

Your posts here imply that you think it unfair for people to accept the verdict of his trial.   Why?   What do you know that supports his innocence?

You know that some people do not think sexual assault of women is a thing.

Well, I don't know if I'd actually call them 'people'. Perhaps 'bottom feeding pond scum' would be a better term for those who defend and deflect for know sexual predators and rapists.

He was found guilty, and with as many people who came forward and accused him I do think he was guilty. Maybe not on all of them, but at least on some. Do you know something no one else does?

If you believe that, I have the deeds for some beautiful ocean front properties in South Dakota and Minnesota.

Evidently Bill Cosby has called his release on a technicality a victory for black America. 

Sick sense of humor.
