Bill Cosby Hires Lawyer Who Repped Michael Jackson, Mike Tyson & Suge Knight

Bill Cosby is reorganizing his legal team. The 80-year-old comedian has reportedly hired Michael Jackson’s former lawyer to represent him at his November retrial on sexual assault charges in Pennsylvania.

His spokesman announced that he is bringing in Tom Mesereau to lead a retooled defense team. As previously reported, two Lawyers from the first trial in June had said they wanted off the case.

Mesereau won an acquittal in Jackson’s 2004 child molestation trial. Other notables that he’s repped include Mike Tyson, Marion “Suge” Knight and a Playboy bunny.

Mesereau will be joined by former federal prosecutor Kathleen Bliss, as well as Sam Silver. Cosby’s first trial on charges he drugged and molested a woman at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004 ended in a hung jury.
