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.
“Cosby’s convictions and judgment of sentence are vacated, and he is discharged,” the ruling read.
He had been accused of and tried for sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, who said that the encounter took place in 2004.
