Bill Cosby’s Lawyers Are Already Trying To Get Him Out Of Prison

Bill Cosby

The motion for an appeal argues that, because of multiple alleged errors in Cosby's criminal trial, Judge Steven O'Neill was mistaken in declaring Cosby a "sexually violent predator", the Associated Press reports.

"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", the motion says, according to Deadline. He quoted from Constand's own statement to the court, in which she said Cosby took her "beautiful, young spirit and crushed it".

Cosby's attorneys further accused Judge O'Neill of factoring in the testimonies of five other women who had accused the comedian of sexual misconduct when deciding Cosby's fate, and that O'Neill proved as much when he referenced "voices from the past, your past" while delivering Cosby's sentence. Those allegations did not result in charges.

The decision to name Cosby a sexually violent predator was in accordance with a recommendation by the Sexual Offender Registration Board.

The defense motion, dated Friday, was posted to a public court docket in the case over the weekend.

'Team player' Brett Kavanaugh sworn in again as US Supreme Court Justice
Other analysts said the court's reputation could suffer as it becomes perceived as a political, rather than a legal, institution. Trump signed Kavanaugh's commission later Saturday, with Chief Justice John Roberts swearing in the new justice Saturday night.

Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele intends to file a response, but otherwise has no comment, said his spokeswoman, Kate Delano.

Bill Cosby was sentenced to prison just 11 days ago, and he and his legal team are already working to get him out. In addition, the defense reportedly challenged the state's sex offender laws and claimed an audio recording of a 2005 conversation between Cosby and the mother of accuser Andrea Constand, which was played for jurors, was not authentic.

During the recorded call, Cosby suggested that he would be willing to pay for Constand to attend graduate school.

Even if the judge rejects their request for a new trial, the attorneys said his sentence should be vacated and reduced. O'Neill instead had Cosby led out of the courtroom in handcuffs.
