The Supreme Court of the state of Pennsylvania (USA) has annulled this Wednesday the conviction for sexual abuse against the comedian Bill Cosby, considering that he did not have a fair trial.
Cosby, an icon of American popular culture, until now was incarcerated in a state prison near Philadelphia and was the first famous person to be prosecuted in the era of the Me Too movement, which seeks to make visible the harassment and inequality of women.RELATED
Cosby had been deprived of liberty for two years and had said that he intended to serve the full sentence of up to 10 years in prison imposed on him by a judge in 2018 for sexually assaulting a woman in 2004.
Cosby was arrested in 2015 on charges of drugging a sexually abusing woman at his home outside Philadelphia in 2004. At the conclusion of the trial in April 2018, Cosby was convicted of three different counts of sexual abuse.
