Cosby Attorney Files Motion for Release from Prison

Less than two weeks after he was sentenced to serve three to 10 years in prison on sexual assault charges, disgraced entertainer Bill Cosby’s attorneys are asking for a modified sentence, saying that the trial judge erred in declaring their client a violent predator who must be imprisoned to protect the community.

Cosby, 81, who has been declared legally blind, has been imprisoned since Sept. 25 after Judge Steven O’Neill refused to allow him to remain free on a $1 million bond. O’Neill maintained at the sentencing that because of Cosby’s wealth, fame and use of drugs to molest his accuser, Andrea Constand, he could still be a threat to other women.

Cosby’s attorney entered the motion on Oct. 5.

Meanwhile, Cosby is being sued by appeals lawyer Peter Goldberger, who claims he is owed more than $50,000 in unpaid fees.
