In shocking news, it’s been reported embattled comedian Bill Cosby has been released from prison after serving two years of a 3-to-10-year sentence for reportedly drugging and molesting former Temple University employee Andrea Constand.
“Cosby was sentenced in September 2018 to three to 10 years in state prison for allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting former Temple University employee Andrea Constand in 2004.
In a ruling released Wednesday, the state Supreme Court concluded that Cosby’s prosecution should never have occurred due to a deal the comedian cut with former Montgomery County prosecutor Bruce Castor, who agreed not to criminally prosecute Cosby if he agreed to give a deposition in a civil case brought against him by Constand.
The decision went on to say that Cosby was the victim of an unconstitutional “coercive bait-and-switch.”
Cosby cannot be retried on the criminal charges.”
