Bill Cosby released from prison after sexual assault conviction vacated by Pennsylvania Supreme Court – The Washington Post

Bill Cosby was released Wednesday after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court vacated his sentence, according to the Pennsylvania prison system.

The court found the 83-year-old had an agreement with a previous prosecutor that prevented him from being charged in the case. He had been incarcerated for two years after being sentenced to serve between three and 10 years in a state prison near Philadelphia.
