BREAKING: Bill Cosby Loses Appeal to Overturn Sexual Assault Conviction

A Pennsylvania court on Tuesday rejected Bill Cosby’s attempt to overturn his sexual assault conviction which he said that five additional accusers should not have been allowed to testify at his trial.

Cosby’s lawyers argued that accounts from the five other women were “strikingly dissimilar” to Andrea Constand during the trial on her sexual assault and making them unfair and prejudicial.

The trial judge, Steven O’Neill, had said earlier that the testimony of the additional women showed “chilling similarities” that pointed to a “signature” crime.

Cosby, 81, has been serving a 3 to 10-year term at a state prison near Philadelphia since September 2018.
