Legendary comedian Bill Cosby has been hit with a $2.75 million bill in legal fees.
What We Know:
- Cosby, 82, was found guilty in 2018 of drugging and molesting a woman in 2004. He was sentenced to three to ten years.
- As his first year in prison comes to a close, Cosby began to challenge a California arbitration award. CBS News reports that the award was almost $7 million compared to the $9 million bill from his first sexual assault trial in 2017.
- A judge agreed with Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, a Los Angeles firm, on Friday to reject Cosby’s claim. Cosby’s spokesman Andrew Wyatt isn’t speaking on the fee dispute but is letting everyone know how Cosby’s holding up in prison.
- Wyatt says that Cosby is serving his sentence in a suburban Philadelphia prison and has become a mentor to his fellow inmates. He is also holding on to the day when he will be a free man again. Meanwhile, the Pennsylvania Superior Court is still deciding the fate of his appeal on last year’s conviction.
We hope our TV father is holding on and continuing to be a positive role model for all of his inmates. Hopefully, he comes home soon!
