While Bill Cosby awaits his sentencing after being convicted of sexual assault, he is getting new lawyers. The disgraced comedian has fired his entire legal team.
Reports Page Six:
Convicted sexual predator Bill Cosby has canned his entire legal team ahead of his Sept. 25 sentencing, his spokesman told The Post.
“Joseph P. Green Jr. is Mr. Cosby’s new attorney,” Andrew Wyatt said after the news broke that Cosby had tossed all of his high-powered legal team.
The mass-firing occurs as the 80-year-old faces sentencing in September on three counts of aggravated indecent assault for drugging and molesting Andrea Constand in his suburban Philadelphia home in January 2004.
Cosby was convicted at his April retrial, and faces up to 10 years behind bars on each count.
It’s worth noting that Cosby previously dismissed the team whose trial ended with a mistrial in 2017.
Cosby is currently out on bail, and rocking an ankle monitor. In other news, maybe Camille isn’t leaving him after all.
Bill Cosby will have no shortage of protection when he appears before the judge for sentencing in his sexual assault case. Montgomery County Sheriff Sean Kilkenny tells us … law enforcement in his small Pennsylvania town will be “100 percent all hands…
How the high and mighty have fallen. Until he is formally sentenced, convicted felon Bill Cosby is on house arrest and will have to wear a GPS ankle monitor.
Hey, those are the rules,
Reports Page Six:
A day after the comedian was found guilty of drugging and sexually assaulting a woman in 2004, Judge Steven O’Neill outlined the strict bail conditions, saying the 80-year-old can only leave his house to meet with lawyers or doctors.
Even then, he can’t stray far from his home county and needs written permission from the probation office.
Cosby, who is out on $ 1 million bail, faces up to 30 years behind bars.

Bill Cosby‘s week is off to an epically terrible start. New York magazine featured 35 of the comedian and accused rapist’s alleged victims in its latest issue and the New York Daily News threw salt on the wound by making him a cover star, too.
The New York mag piece and its provocative cover is sure to be trending all day as 35 women shared their stories about being victimized by the man we all knew as Cliff Huxtable, but is now known as “Pill Cosby.”
The New York Daily News highlighted the story, along with the headline “America’s Rapist.”
Is part of the pile on because Cosby was once one of the most well regarded Black men in America? That could be part of it. However, before you go trying to defend the indefensible, check out his deposition where he admits to drugging women.
If this isn’t the final nail in the coffin of Cosby’s wrecked legacy…

Bill Cosby says he paid women after having sex with them and went to great lengths to hide his behavior and the payments from his wife.
By CRACKED Staff Published: July 16th, 2015
Cosby Show actor and 90s posterchild for Black Brooks Brothers everywhere, Joseph C. Phillips is stepping out in front of all his former co-stars and proclaiming that Bill Cosby is indeed guilty as accused.
Although the actor who played Lt. Martin Kendall admits he never actually saw a Cosby violate or drug a victim, it was a first-hand account from a woman (presumably a notable actress) who confirmed what many believe for him personally.
From his blog:
I am also of the opinion that some women who are married to prominent men strike a deal with themselves. They believe that, for men, the act of sex is removed from love. The bargain they make is that as long as their husbands continue to bring home the checks and don’t bring home any babies or diseases, they will overlook any dalliances.
So, in 1989, my attitude was that if Bill was cheating on Camille, I am fairly certain Camille knew. Hey, if everyone who claimed to know actually knew, then certainly Camille knew, and had long ago made her peace with it. At any rate, it was none of my business. I never saw Bill engage in any inappropriate behavior. I certainly never saw him drug anyone. So, all I have is the same gossip as everyone else.
As the accusations began to increase, I became increasingly disturbed. I was fairly certain that some of the women were lying through their teeth, but certainly not all of them. Discovering that the man you idolize may be a serial rapist is a bit traumatic. I don’t imagine it is anything near to the trauma of the alleged victims. Nevertheless, I found it unsettling.
I was particularly shaken the afternoon I bumped into an old friend while shopping. The controversy was at its height. The story of Bill was all over the press. I hadn’t seen this woman for many years. Back in the day, I had asked her out on a few dates, but was relegated to the friend zone so fast it made my ears wiggle. We had kept in touch for a few years, but our lives had taken different paths. Over the years, I had watched with a passive interest as her career grew, so I was excited to see her and catch up a bit.
As we spoke, I recalled that Bill had been her mentor (play father, teacher…something. I couldn’t quite recall what it was). The question popped into my head.
“Hey, do you mind if I ask you something?”
She looked at me and then asked, “Is it going to make me cry?”
I was a bit taken aback. “Well,” I stammered. “I hope it doesn’t make you cry.”
She smiled. “Go ahead and ask your question.”
“Back in the day,” I started. “I remember that you knew Bill – that he was like your mentor or something. Did he ever…”
Before I finished the sentence, she began to cry.
We spent the next two hours sitting on a bench talking. Through tears, she told me her story. She cursed him for violating both her trust and her body. She cursed herself for not being smarter, and for degrading herself in pursuit of success. I listened patiently. As she began to run out of steam, she turned to me. “Do you believe me?”
“Yes.” I said. “I believe you.”
“Why?” she asked.
“Because I don’t believe that you are crazy and only a crazy person would sit with me all this time and share a fantasy.”
Given that the story is true, it is all but clear that Cosby never met a woman he didn’t want to think deserved “A Piece of the Action.”
Watch Phillips elaborate on his Cosby stance on the CCN Sunrise Morning TV Talk Show,
Bill Cosby apparently confessed to drugging women that he wanted to have sex with, a decade ago. The admission came during a 2005 deposition involving a lawsuit brought on by a Temple University employee.
Cosby has been under fire for months, after dozens of women stepped up with sexual assault allegations against the now 77-year-old comedian.
Reports the Associated Press:
Bill Cosby testified in 2005 that he got Quaaludes with the intent of giving them to young women he wanted to have sex with, and he admitted giving the sedative to at least one woman and “other people,” according to documents obtained Monday by The Associated Press.
The AP had gone to court to compel the release of the documents; Cosby’s lawyers had objected on the grounds that it would embarrass their client.
The 77-year-old comedian was testifying under oath in a lawsuit filed by a former Temple University employee. He testified he gave her three half-pills of Benadryl.
Cosby settled that sexual-abuse lawsuit for undisclosed terms in 2006. His lawyers in the Philadelphia case did not immediately return phone calls Monday.
Cosby has continued to publicly deny the various sexual abuse stories, which include that of model Beverly Johnson, who says he once attempted to drug and have sex with her.

Back when Bill Cosby was on his 27th accuser or so, he had a very credible defender in Jill Scott gunning in the trenches for a man she “respected.”
Now that the disgraced comedian has been outed for admitting to copping date rape drugs to do the unthinkable with unconscious women, the sultry soul singer is now owning up to the fact that she was wrong and along.
“About Bill Cosby. Sadly his own testimony offers PROOF of terrible deeds, which is ALL I have ever required to believe the accusations,” Scott tweeted as Cosby’s name topped social media trending topics. “I stood by a man I respected and loved. I was wrong. It HURTS!!! When you get it ALL right, holla.”
You win some and you lose some but this one is a clear fail. Phylicia Rashad, you’re up next.

Bill Maher made yet another joke referencing the recent sexual assault allegations against Bill Cosby.
On Friday night’s episode of “Real Time with Bill Maher,” the host mentioned Cosby during a segment about Sarah Palin. While discussing the Republican voices who criticized a recent Palin speech, Maher said, “Sean Hannity asked, ‘Did the teleprompter go down?’ The Washington Examiner questioned whether she should be included in future Republican events. And Bill Cosby said, ‘I wouldn’t drug her with your drink.'”
The host has made jokes about the allegations against Cosby on numerous occasions, including during his monologue for the Nov. 14 episode of “Real Time With Bill Maher.” While discussing Obama’s then-new initiatives, he said: “If you’re a Republican, you see Obama as Bill Cosby sexually assaulting the Constitution.”
Maher also joked about the comedian on the Nov. 21 episode of the show. “It was a bad week for Bill Cosby,” Maher said. “On the plus side, he has lots of pills lying around that can make him forget the whole thing.”

A report from Bill Cosby’s show in London, Ontario tonight says that the embattled comedian made a joke about the sexual assault allegations against him. Cosby’s exact words to a woman in the audience were “be careful about drinking around me,” according to the National Post.
The drink joke happened in the middle of the show after a woman got up from her seat to get something to drink. Cosby played to a mostly receptive crowd who cheered at his quip, the National Post reports says.
However, two men were booted from the show after one of them heckled Cosby. The man screamed, “We don’t love you Bill” and “I’m being kicked out because you’re a rapist!” as he was removed.
Cosby has been accused of drugging more than two dozen women, many over 30 years ago. He has denied the allegations.
Co-star Phylicia Rashad recently came out in support of her former TV husband, pointing to a ploy to keep him off of television, and ruin his “legacy.”
The post Bill Cosby Jokes About Sex Assault Allegations, Tells Woman “Be Careful Drinking Around Me” appeared first on Hip-Hop Wired.
Bill Cosby, who has been accused of sexual assault by more than two dozen women, told a woman attending his comedy show in Canada on Thursday night that “you have to be careful about drinking around me,” according to multiple people in the room.
The woman was reportedly getting up from her front-row seat at Budweiser Gardens in London, Ontario, to get a drink when Cosby asked where she was going. She offered him a drink, according to National Post reporter Richard Warnica and others in attendance.
That’s when Cosby made the crack:
He said no, he already had one (a bottle of water). Then he continued “You have to be careful about drinking around me.”
— Richard Warnica (@richardwarnica) January 9, 2015
One of his accusers, Beverly Johnson, has claimed that Cosby placed a drug in her drink before allegedly assaulting her.
I talked to some Cosby fans leaving Budweiser Gardens and they all seemed to find the “be careful what you drink” joke funny. I give up.

Before the show, protesters braved freezing temperatures and snow outside the arena:

Afterward, Cosby released a statement through his publicist:
“Dear Fans: One outburst but over 2600 loyal, patient and courageous fans enjoyed the most wonderful medicine that exist for human-kind. Laughter. I thank you, the theatre staff (Budweiser Gardens), the event organizers and the London, ON Community for your continued honor and support. I’m Far From Finished.”
Cosby has not directly responded to any of the accusations.
The performance was the second of three concerts in Ontario, with the final event scheduled to be held Friday night in Hamilton. His next scheduled event after that is Jan. 17 in Denver.

Katherine McKee, a former actress and ex-girlfriend of Sammy Davis Jr., has alleged that she was also a victim of Bill Cosby, joining more than 20 women who have accused the once famed comedian of rape and attempted assault.
According to McKee, “It was a rape, but it seemed so strange to call it that. We think of rape as a stranger who attacks you in a parking lot,” she concluded. “I chalked it up to another powerful person in Hollywood who just felt he could take what he wanted from women.”
With over 20 allegations of sexual assault and rape currently being made against longtime comedian and actor Bill Cosby, there is at least one case that will not be pursued by authorities after Los Angeles prosecutors have decided not to charge Cosby in the alleged molestation of Judy Huth.
According to Huth, Cosby sexually assaulted her during a visit to the Playboy mansion where she says she was told to lie about her age, (she was 15 at the time.)
According to court documents the prosecution declined to pursue the case based on the fact that “…40 years have passed since the alleged incident, prosecution … is declined due to the expiration of the statute of limitations.”
