American former stand-up comedian, actor, and author, William Henry Cosby Jr. has finally been released from prison.
The 83-year-old comedian was released from SCI Phoenix on Wednesday, June 30th, 2021, at around 2:30 pm according to reports.
Bill was arrested back in 2018, he was to serve a 3 to 10-year sentence of which he has severed almost three years, he was convicted on three felony counts of aggravated indecent assault in 2018 of drugging and assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004.
“The evidence, in this case, will show that Andrea Constand didn’t come to us. What happened was, after this gets released, we go to her. And we ask if she’s willing to help the commonwealth,” Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele told the jury, according to ABC News.
He was released after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court overturned the indecent assault conviction labeled against him thereby proclaiming him a free man.
“When an unconditional charging decision is made publicly and with the intent to induce action and reliance by the defendant, and when the defendant does so to his detriment (and in some instances upon the advice of counsel), denying the defendant the benefit of that decision is an affront to fundamental fairness,”.
“For these reasons, Cosby’s convictions and judgment of sentence are vacated, and he is discharged.” high court Justice David Wecht’s verdict read.
The freeman, Cosby took to his verified Twitter account after his freedom to make his first statement.
According to him in his tweet, he has never changed his stance nor story, but always maintained his innocence.
He then went on to pour in his thanks to his fans, supporters and friends who stood by him through the ordeal.
Not forgeting to give special thanks to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court for upholding the rule of law.

I’m enraged, heartbroken and disgusted by Cosby’s release. I can only imagine what all his survivors must be feeling. This convicted rapist is free today because he is a man of privilege. The Patriarchy rears it’s ugly head yet again.
