Bill Cosby, the disgraced, convicted sex creep felon was sprung from prison on Wednesday, courtesy of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
He had been in prison for the past two and a half years after being convicted back in 2018 of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand way back in 2004.

The Cos was one if, if not the first celebrity to go down in the #MeToo era, and was arrested back in 2015 after his deposition in a lawsuit that was brought by Constand.
Let’s just say the decision by the court was a shocker. Gloria Allred is the attorney who represented many of the Cosby accusers and had this to say.
“This must be devastating to many of the accusers, and my heart goes out to those who bravely testified in both of his criminal cases.”
Phylicia Rashad, who played Cosby’s wife on the hit NBC show, had a different feeling about today’s events.
“FINALLY!!!! A terrible wrong is being righted — a miscarriage of justice is corrected,” is what she initially tweeted.
She got crushed on social media, so she cam back with this statement. “I fully support survivors of sexual assault coming forward. My post was in no way intended to be insensitive to their truth. Personally, I know from friends and family that such abuse has lifelong residual effects. My heartfelt wish is for healing.”
Why did Cosby get released so suddenly? The Court said it falls on the District Attorney Kevin Steel, who made the decision to arrest Cosby. The judges said he was obligated to stand by his predecessor’s promise not to charge Cosby, even though there was no written agreement.
