The Pennsylvania Supreme Court made a key decision in the case of comedian Bill Cosby, who is in prison while he appeals his conviction on sexual assault charges.
The AP reports that the court rejected Cosby’s request to be released on bail while he appeals the case.
“The order from the court issued Friday does not elaborate on the decision,” the report notes.
The AP adds: “Cosby filed an appeal earlier this month saying that Pennsylvania trial Judge Steven O’Neill had a feud with a key pretrial witness, the former county prosecutor who declined to arrest Cosby a decade earlier. And they say his decision to let five other accusers testify among other alleged issues are grounds for a new trial.”
Cosby, who is legally blind, is reportedly being housed in a new state prison about 20 miles from his Philadelphia-area estate.
