Hours later, he was a free man after spending the past two years behind bars in a state prison near Philadelphia after being found guilty in the sexual assault of former Temple University employee Andrea Constand in 2004.

The star -- formerly known as "America's Dad" -- was convicted on three counts of aggravated indecent assault in 2018. He was sentenced to three to 10-years.

He can never be retried for the crime again.

In May, Cosby was denied parole after refusing to participate in a court-ordered treatment program for sex offenders.
