Cosby lawyers argue ‘unfair’ to use deposition
PHILADELPHIA — Bill Cosby’s lawyers argued in an appeals filing Tuesday that it was “fundamentally unfair” to let prosecutors use Cosby’s damaging deposition from a sex accuser’s lawsuit against him at trial.
Cosby believes he had a binding promise from a prosecutor that he could never be charged in the case, and said testimony from five other accusers had improperly prejudiced the jury against him.
A spokeswoman for the Montgomery County district attorney’s office declined comment.
Cosby, 83, is serving a three- to 10-year prison term after being convicted in 2018 of three counts of felony sex assault.
