Bill Cosby, former comedic legend turned serial rapist, is now behind bars serving a sentence of three to ten years for three counts of aggravated sexual assault relating to the Andrea Constand incident in 2004. Moreover, sources revealed earlier this week that prisoners already have a nickname for the felon: “OG.”
However, in addition to Bill’s mounting legal debt on account of the dozens of lawyers he paid over the course of four years, some of the respective law firms are looking to collect.
According to new reports, a Philadelphia law firm is taking Cosby to court for legal fees. Reportedly, Schnader Harrison Segal and Lewis are looking to collect around $283,000 in lawyer costs.
The law firm claims they are seeking payment for defending Bill amid his case involving Andrea Constand, the former Temple University student he drugged and assaulted in fourteen years ago.
According to Samuel Silver, Cosby hired him for legal counsel in January 2016, but he left the case in January 2018 just before Cosby’s guilty conviction.
The time period he’s looking to collect on runs from August 2017 until July of this year. This is yet another problem faced by the former comic.
As it was previously reported, Cosby put up several of his homes for sale to cover legal costs, and also took out a $30 million loan on a townhouse in New York City. Unfortunately for Mr. Cosby, his reputation is forever tarnished, as he spends his last days in jail.
Previously, the Department Of Corrections of the state of Pennsylvania updated the public on Cosby’s living situation, explaining that he is currently being held in a facility with 10-feet high ceilings.
They intend on putting him in general population sometime in the future. Reports indicate that between 60 to 100 women accused Bill of sexual harassment, assault, drugging, and rape.
