Court Rejects Bill Cosby’s Appeal, Criminal Case Can Resume

Bill Cosby Loses Bid to Dismiss Criminal Case. Bill Cosby was arrested in 2015 for a nearly 12-year-old alleged indecent sexual assault claim in PA by newly elected Montgomery County D.A Kevin Steele, ironically this was the same day that a grand jury in Cleveland declined to indict charges against the police officers who were filmed murdering a 12-year-old Tamir Rice at a public playground. Today, Cleveland agreed to pay $6 million to the family of Rice, yet they do not and will not admit to any wrongdoing in his death.

Meanwhile back in PA, Cosby’s appeal is rejected by the Pennsylvania Superior Court and his criminal case will proceed.

The court quickly rejected the appeal and Cosby is now facing trial over a 2004 encounter at his home with a former friend and massage therapist Andrea Constand. Constand states Cosby was like her mentor.

Cosby says they engaged in consensual sex acts, however, Constand is claiming assault. Former Montgomery County D.A. Bruce Castor could not find sufficient evidence to charge Cosby with any crime. Castor promised he would never prosecute Cosby and urged him to testify in the woman’s civil lawsuit, Castor said he wanted to help the Constand get a large settlement, violating Cosby’s 5th amendment rights.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 25, 2016
STATEMENT REGARDING SUPERIOR COURT
ORDERS IN COSBY CASE
Today we received two orders from the Pennsylvania Superior Court. The first, at the Commonwealth’s request, quashed the Cosby defense team’s pretrial interlocutory appeal. The second, also at the Commonwealth’s request, denied their appeal of Judge O’Neill’s refusal to certify an interlocutory appeal. We did not believe that the defense had a right to appeal at this stage, and we are gratified that the Court came to the same conclusion. The effect of both of these orders is that we can now hold a preliminary hearing. We are ready for that hearing and look forward to the Court setting a date so we can present our case.
Approved for Release:
Kevin R. Steele

  3. What is most disturbing is that the Superior Court, like Judge O’Neil, gave no reasons for its decision. Apparently, they are aware that this is a witch hunt against Dr. Cosby and cannot explain why they are allowing it to continue.

  4. Judge Steven O’Neil must be hopping around his Kangaroo Court in delight. Nothing’s really changed since last December when these manufactured charges were trotted out (after months of planning). Andrea Constand is a wire tapping felon with 5 stories on the go & not one shred of evidence of a crime. Kevin Steele is doing his best to keep black men off the streets in his jurisdiction and we’ve all see how much the law can bend to accommodate the branding of one of the great black leaders to walk the earth a ‘rapist’. The world is watching America in disgust.

      1. Tamara Green nearly beat an 11 year old boy to death. She more to your liking? She no more a voice for victims than you are.

          1. Keira, What do you consider a disgusting moment? Do you think that adults should not have the right to sex? Do you think that when a person says they have a headache, it is disgusting to give them an over-the-counter medicine that tens of millions of people use? Do you think it disgusting for a producer to offer a free meal to struggling actors an actresses when they come to audition for a part in your television show. Most sane people would consider it an act of uncommon generosity.

          3. Bill Cosby has never admitted to anything but having a sex life. Sorry it offends you so. Don’t like the snut the ‘ladies’ are selling? Then don’t read it. Interesting tho that Tamara Green nearly murdering a boy gets a pass.

  6. Since Andrea Constand got paid, & they found no evidence against Mr Cosby, this makes no sense to me…she got “hush money”. PEACE!!!
