Bill Cosby Calls Out 'Pathetic' Prosecutors For 'Last-Ditch Effort' On Overturning Conviction That Freed Comedian, Accuses D.A. Of Having a 'Troubling' Fixation On Him
Bill Cosby is slamming Pennsylvania prosecutors after they demanded the Supreme Court review the overturned sexual assault conviction that let him walk out of prison as a free man. The 84-year-old's rep Andrew Wyatt tells Radar, the Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele's "fixation" on Cosby is "troubling to say the least."
Wyatt calls the prosecutors' latest move "pathetic" and a "last-ditch" effort to reprimand the comedian who has already won in the eyes of the law.
"Unwilling to accept its epic loss in the Pennsylvania, Supreme Court, the Montgomery County District Attorney has now filed a Petition for a Writ of Certiorari to the United States Supreme Court. In short, the Montgomery County D.A. asks the United States Supreme Court to throw the Constitution out the window, as it did, to satisfy the #metoo mob," he tells Radar.
Saying there is "no merit" to the request "which centers on the unique facts of the Cosby case and has no impact on important federal questions of law," Cosby's rep adds, "This is a pathetic last-ditch effort that will not prevail."
Ending the statement with a blow aimed at Steele, Wyatt says, "The Montgomery County’s DA’s fixation with Mr. Cosby is troubling to say the least."
Cosby's response comes after prosecutors filed legal documents asking the U.S. Supreme Court to examine the PA Supreme Court's ruling which overturned the comedian's sexual assault conviction in the Andrea Constand case.
He walked out of prison on June 30 due to a technicality.

Since his release, Cosby has been speaking up and throwing his name in the ring with other high-profile celebrities seeking justice on prison reform. Most recently, the funnyman sided with Kanye West in the rapper's battle to free Larry Hoover.
Ye hired the same lawyer who successfully got Cosby out of prison.
Hoover has "paid his debt to society and his story must be told in the same manner that I always reminded people of the good that Mr. Cosby brought to the world," Wyatt told Radar.
"I also, would like to say, thank you to Ye on behalf of Mr. Cosby and the Cosby family for his support of Mr. Cosby. Thank you very much," he stated.
