Bill Cosby has been released from prison.

As Axios reports, Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court decided on Wednesday to overturn Cosby’s conviction from 2018 for the sexual assault of Andrea Constand in 2004.

The court found that Cosby had struck an agreement to provide testimony in a civil lawsuit that would give him immunity in the sexual assault case, according to Axios.

  • Former Montgomery County prosecutor Bruce Castor had a written agreement with Cosby where “he promised Cosby he would not file criminal charges if the entertainer would testify in a civil lawsuit Constand filed against Cosby in 2005,” according to ABC News.

Cosby was sentenced to a 3-to-10-year sentence for what happened. He has been imprisoned in Philadelphia for almost three years after he was convicted of “drugging and sexually assaulting a woman at his home in 2004,” according to The Associated Press.

Back in June 2020, The Associated Press reported that Pennsylvania’s highest court would review the trial decision.

  • “The Supreme Court has agreed to review two aspects of the case, including the judge’s decision to let prosecutors call the other accusers to testify about long-ago encounters with the once-powerful actor and comedian,” per The Associated Press.
  • And the court said it would look at “whether the jury should have heard evidence that Cosby had given quaaludes to women in the past,” according to The Associated Press.

Cosby has maintained he never committed sexual assault, ABC News reports.
