Bill Cosby is currently appealing his sentence. 

The disgraced actor, comedian, and TV dad convicted on three counts of aggravated indecent assault against a Toronto woman found new life in the court system. 

On June 23, 2020, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled Cosby would be able to appeal his sexual assault conviction based upon questions on testimony from a witness being more prejudicial than probative.

After the ruling was delivered, Mr. Cosby’s wife, Camille Cosby spoke for the first time in six years.

“Finally, there is a court — the state’s highest court — that has said, ‘Wait a minute. There are some problems here,'” Camille Cosby said in an interview with ABC News Wednesday.

She spoke about his current condition and fitness: 

“My husband is doing very well. He is exercising, he is eating properly. I’m happy about that. And in terms of visiting him, no. I do not want to see my husband in that kind of environment, and he doesn’t want me to see him in that kind of environment,” she said.

The interesting point in the interview came when she referenced the cause for her husbands’ incarceration, citing racism and the #MeToo movement.

“The #MeToo movement and movements like them have intentional ignorance pertaining to the history of particular white women who have — from the very beginning — accused black males of sexual assault without any proof whatsoever, no proof, anywhere on the face of the earth,” Camille Cosby said.

Bill Cosby was a revered comedian, actor, spokesperson, and most famously portrayed America’s dad in his role as Dr. Cliff Huxtable. He was voted the “Greatest TV Dad” by TV Guide.
