Lawyers to convicted American actor Bill Cosby have filled an appeal against the sexual assault conviction of three to ten years in a state prison meted out to the 81-year-old comedian.
Cosby has been in Pennsylvania state prison since he was sentenced on September 25. He was classified as a sexually violent predator and must register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
The appeal argues that there were multiple alleged errors in Cosby’s criminal trial,and that the judge was mistaken in declaring Cosby a ‘sexually violent predator’.
The appeal also argued that the judge shouldn’t have considered the testimony of five other women who accused Cosby of sexual assault. His lawyers believe the judge should have allowed only those testimonies that spoke directly to the case.
A response to the appeal is yet to be filled by the Montgomery Attorney District’s office..
