Cosby, 84, was freed from prison this summer after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that the conviction was not valid after the actor had an agreement with a previous prosecutor to not criminally charge him after he had been deposed in the Andrea Constand case. He had only served two years out of his ten-year sentence for sexual assault.
Now according to court documents obtained by TMZ, Pennsylvania prosecutors have asked the U.S. Supreme Court to look over the PA Supreme Court's ruling that allowed Cosby to be released.
The court papers stated that prosecutors are looking to the Supreme Court to right a "grievous wrong," as they believe that The Cosby Show star's overturned conviction could set a dangerous precedent for sexual assault cases.
Prosecutors have argued that the actor wasn't given lifetime immunity from prosecution simply because the prosecutor at the time decided to give him a pass.
Andrew Wyatt, Cosby's spokesperson slammed the filing as he said that the D.A.'s Office is "unwilling to accept its epic loss" and that the motion is a "pathetic last-ditch effort that will not prevail."
Wyatt also told Radar, that the prosecutors are "Unwilling to accept its epic loss in the Pennsylvania, Supreme Court, the Montgomery County District Attorney has now filed a Petition for a Writ of Certiorari to the United States Supreme Court. In short, the Montgomery County D.A. asks the United States Supreme Court to throw the Constitution out the window, as it did, to satisfy the #metoo mob."
Cosby's representative continued as he stated that there is "no merit" to the filing "which centers on the unique facts of the Cosby case and has no impact on important federal questions of law."
"The Montgomery County’s DA’s fixation with Mr. Cosby is troubling to say the least," Wyatt concluded.
