Bill Cosby breaks silence after prison release at age 83
In related news, Bill Cosby spoke out for the first time since being released from prison after his sexual assault conviction was overturned. He is grateful to finally be free after the time he had to serve.
In a post, Cosby declared his innocence and thanked his fans for their support. Cosby had already served more than two years of his sentence, which had been set at three to 10 years in a Pennsylvania state prison in Shippack.
The 83-year old's sexual assault conviction back in 2018, however, was overturned by the Philadelphia Supreme Court, according to a report by Mirror UK. The star is believed to have left the prison in a white car and he was later seen giving a peace sign to the cameras. Two men and one woman assisted him.
