Bill Cosby had his first piece of good news in years this past week. Page Six reported today that the formerly legendary comedian won the right to appeal his 2018 sexual assault conviction for which he is currently incarcerated.

According to the outlet, Bill agreed to review two parts of the case that the disgraced comedian is currently fighting against, that being the decision for the judge to allow prosecutors to invite five other women on the stand to introduce evidence.

Furthermore, Bill and his attornies are challenging the fact that the women were allowed to say that he had given them quaaludes. As it was previously reported, the 82-year-old is behind bars right now on a 3-10 year prison sentence.

The comedian was imprisoned for the drugging and assaulting of Andrea Constand 16 years ago in the second trial that occurred shortly after a grid-locked trial. Followers of the case know that his initial case in 2017 led to a gridlock.

Moreover, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court will look at a past agreement between Cosby and a prior prosecutor who said that Cosby wouldn't face criminal charges if he agreed to testify in Constand's civil lawsuit. However, the comic says that this agreement was ultimately used against him in the end.

According to multiple reports, Bill Cosby has been defiant ever since he was first imprisoned on the aforementioned charges.

Sources say that Bill refuses to admit wrongdoing and is determined to clear his name and get out of prison so he can spend his final days at home.

As most know, the comic is now 82-years-old. Earlier this year amid the pandemic that kicked off in the United States in March, Cosby reportedly requested to be let out of prison due to his varying health conditions and issues.

However, his request to get out was denied, unlike Tekashi 6ix9ine, another celebrity who petitioned to get out of jail early and was actually granted that right. R. Kelly, another accused sexual predator, tried to get out of jail where he is currently awaiting his trial.
