On Friday a court filing was made stating Bill Cosby is replacing his Philadelphia lawyer who handed his sentencing with a pair of defense attorneys. Bill is looking to appeal his conviction and three-to-10 year sentence in his Pennsylvania sex assault case.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, “Joseph Green is exiting after about four months on Cosby’s defense team. The new lawyers are Brian Perry and Kristen Weisenberger, of Harrisburg. Another lawyer, Peter Goldberger, worked on a motion last week challenging the outcome of the case, the first step toward an appeal.

Another ex-lawyer of Bill’s is suing over what he says is more than $280,000 in unpaid bills. Bill is trying to get out as fast as he can.
