Bill hasn’t been in jail for a good two weeks yet and his lawyers are trying their best to get him out. According to Page Six, “A defense motion filed Friday outlines his attorneys’ requests, which include the overturning of the actor’s conviction and three-to 10- year sentence on account of errors made in his sex assault case and trial.”
The motion reads, “The defendant, William H. Cosby, Jr., moves this court for a new trial in the interest of justice, or at least for reconsideration and modification of the sentence imposed on September 25, 2018.” Bill’s defense team is claiming that Judge Steven O’Neill should have recused himself from the sentencing hearing following the 2017 mistrial.
A lot is going on here and a lot of fingers are being pointed at a lot of people. Will Bill get out sooner than we think?
