2nd Bill Cosby Lawyer Wants Off Sexual Assault Case
Another Bill Cosby lawyer is pulling the plug. The second lawyer who defended the legendary comedian in his sex assault trial that ended with a deadlocked jury, has requested to be released from the case before the start of his retrial that’s set for November.
On Tuesday, Angela Agrusa, a Los Angeles based attorney, filed documents seeking to withdraw as Cosby’s counsel. Lead defense lawyer Brian McMonagle, of Philadelphia, asked to be taken off the case earlier this month.
As previously reported, Cosby is being retried on charges he drugged and molested Andrea Constand more than a decade ago. Cosby has said it was consensual.
