Disgraced comedian, Bill Cosby and his lawyers have filed for an appeal in the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania.

Bill Cosby’s lawyers are seeking a new trial on the grounds that it was “fundamentally unfair” that the judge at his 2018 sexual assault trial allowed Cosby’s deposition from a civil lawsuit to be used against him.

Cosby’s lawyers also argued that the testimony from five accusers had improperly prejudiced the jury against Cosby at the trial.

The appeal states: “Although the evidence was purportedly allowed for a limited purpose, the prosecution’s closing argument shows that the jury was urged to return a verdict against Cosby based on a depiction of him, unsupported by actual evidence, as a predator who drugged and raped women for decades.”

He has been behind bars for nearly two years after a jury convicted him in 2018 of drugging and sexually assaulting former Temple University employee Andrea Constand in 2004. He is serving a three to ten year sentence.
