Bill Cosby Wants To Be Compensated ‘Millions Of Dollars’ For His Time In Prison
Bill Cosby wants to be compensated for the three years he spent behind bars. “Mr. Cosby was given an unwanted two-year and ten-month vacation that he never ask for,” Cosby representative Andrew Wyatt told NewsNation Now. “His constitutional rights were abolished, his due process was stripped away from him.”
“He’s due millions and millions of dollars,” Wyatt continued. “As Mr. Cosby said to me today, ‘I feel that this district attorney and Judge Steven O’Neill and Kevin Steele [Montgomery County district attorney] should resign effective immediately.”
The representative did not disclose how much he believes Cosby should be compensated.
The comedian served over two years of a three to ten sentence in a Philadelphia area state prison. In 2015, he was convicted of drugging and molesting Andrea Constand at his home. The 84-year-old previously stated that he would serve the entire ten-year prison sentence before he expressed remorse for his actions.
Over 30 women have accused Cosby of sexual assault, but their cases could not be criminally prosecuted as they were outside the specific statutes of limitation.
Cosby’s release came as a result of former prosecutor Bruce Castor, who defended former President Donald Trump at his second impeachment trial, promising the actor that he wouldn’t be charged in 2005, which led Cosby to incriminate himself on a later date. While the agreement was only a verbal one, the state Supreme Court court found it to be legitimate.
Prosecutors have not stated whether or not they will appeal or seek trial a third time.
