Bill Cosby was released from prison today after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court overturned his sexual assault conviction.
This was a shocker to the numerous women who claimed that Cosby had assaulted them. Cosby was sentenced to 10 years and ended up doing only two.
Attorney Gloria Allred, who represented women in Cosby's trial, released this statement
This decision by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court today to overturn the conviction of Bill Cosby must be devastating for Bill Cosby’s accusers. My heart especially goes out to those who bravely testified in both of his criminal cases. I represented a majority of the prior bad act accusers who testified. Despite the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s decision, this was an important fight for justice and even though the court overturned the conviction on technical grounds, it did not vindicate Bill Cosby’s conduct and should not be interpreted as a statement or a finding that he did not engage in the acts of which he has been accused.
John & Ken talked to ABC News correspondent Mark Remillard about how this development played out in court.
