Through archival footage, Cosby reveals who he may have been all along – the opposite of the principled, public figure who became a hero, not just for African Americans, but for all people. “
Cosby was convicted in 2018 of a charge of aggravated sexual assault and sentenced to 10 years in prison, but was released after three earlier in 2021 when the Pennsylvania Supreme Court overturned that sentence.
While a Pennsylvania appellate court upheld Cosby’s ruling last year and rejected his legal team’s argument that he did not get a fair trial, Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court found District Attorney Kevin Steele, who arrested Cosby in 2015, was required to stand trial. . promises not to charge Cosby with any crimes when the comedian agreed to give potentially incriminating testimony in Constand’s civil case.
The court called Cosby’s arrest and subsequent conviction “a violation of fundamental justice, especially when it results in a criminal prosecution that was abandoned for more than a decade”, arguing that “fair play and decency” required DA should respect the agreement of his predecessor.
Steele appeals that decision to the Supreme Court.
