Disgraced comedian Bill Cosby has lost his most recent appeal in the sex assault case that landed him in prison. 

As The New York Post reports:

A Pennsylvania judge did not err in allowing five women to take the stand against Bill Cosby to prove he was a serial sexual predator, an appeals court ruled Tuesday.

The unanimous Superior Court ruling upholds Cosby’s 2018 conviction on three counts of aggravated indecent assault for drugging and molesting Temple University staffer Andrea Constand.

Lawyers for the 82-year-old appealed his conviction, arguing that Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas Judge Steven O’Neill flubbed a decision to allow five accusers — including supermodel Janice Dickinson — to testify at retrial about being abused by the entertainer.

Only one additional accuser testified about being drugged and assaulted by Cosby during his first trial, which ended in a hung jury.


Cosby is currently serving out a three to ten year sentence for his crimes although he still maintains his innocence and has shown absolutely 'no remorse.'
