(CelebrityAccess) — A Pennsylvania appeals court on Tuesday denied a bid by Bill Cosby to overturn his conviction on sexual assault charges.
In its ruling, the Superior Court upheld that prosecutors can call on other accusers to provide evidence in a case, which was also a matter of contention in the upcoming trial of disgraced studio boss Harvey Weinstein.
Cosby’s attorney had argued that the trial court had improperly allowed testimony from Cosby’s other victims during his trial for the sexual assault of Andrea Constand.
They also challenged the trial judge’s decision to allow Cosby’s testimony during a deposition from a previous lawsuit and a promise from a previous judge that the formerly beloved comedian would not be charged.
Cosby, who is now 82, can next take his appeal to the Supreme court and in a recent interview, stated that he’s ready to serve his entire ten years of his 3-10 year term rather than express remorse in front of a parole board.
