Bill Cosby Says He Truly Believes “That Justice Will Prevail” Following An Appeal In Pennsylvania Supreme Court
It was just days ago on Nov. 27 that Bill Cosby’s publicist/crisis manager Andrew Wyatt took to the former comedian’s Instagram page asking his followers to watch the upcoming livestream of Cosby’s appeal of his 3-10 year sentence for apparently sexually assaulting and giving drugs to accuser Andrea Constand at his residence back in 2004.
In an 80-minute virtual hearing Tuesday Dec. 1, in which Bill Cosby was not present, his defense attorney Jennifer Bonjean insisted that her client “never had a fair shot,” citing that trial judge Steven O’Neill permitted five other women to take the stand in the case and tell their accounts of being allegedly drugged and attacked by Cosby. Attorney Bonjean stated,
“A trial on a single offense was converted into a trial on his character.”
Seemingly, that argument deemed significant enough to Justice Max Baer who saw that the inclusion of five women as witnesses as potentially “extraordinarily prejudicial.”
Reportedly, the court’s decision on the appeal could take at least three months and if Cosby has a favorable outcome, his 2018 conviction could be reversed. The traction of this court’s appeal alone could be seen as a win for Cosby, seeing that he’s had no luck with appeals in every other venue.
He did, however, have a positive remark for his attorney after the hearing concluded. He said,
“This morning, people around the world witnessed a beautiful presentation by Attorney Jennifer Bonjean regarding two (2) important issues — Immunity & the misuse of a law called, 404 (b) or PBAs (Prior Bad Acts Witnesses). I’m so happy because I hope and truly believe that justice will prevail.”
