Phylicia Rashad celebrates Bill Cosby’s sentence being overturned

Phylicia Rashad and Bill Cosby on "The Cosby Show." Rashad posted a tweet celebrating Wednesday's ruling overturning Cosby's conviction.

“FINALLY!!!! A terrible wrong is being righted- a miscarriage of justice is corrected!” Rashad tweeted, along with a picture of Cosby.

Cosby was launched from a Pennsylvania jail after the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania left his 2018 conviction on sexual attack charges and sentence.

He was sentenced to ten years in a state jail after being condemned of drugging and sexually attacking Andrea Constand at his house 14 years back.

Cosby and Rashad are long-time pals. Rashad has actually two times played his other half on tv: from 1984–92 on the NBC comedy “The Cosby Show” and on the CBS comedy “Cosby” from 1996-2000.

Lots of females have actually implicated Cosby of sexual misbehavior, consisting of harassment, drugging and rape, going back years. Cosby has actually regularly contested the accusations and kept the relationships were consensual.

Rashad informed ABC in 2015 she was exaggerated in an online interview in which she safeguarded Cosby and stated she was not being dismissive of the declared victims.

“I am a woman,” she stated. “I would never do that.”
