Bill Cosby is locked up and that’s not changing any time soon. He had a parole request in, but that did not work out in his favor.
According to TMZ, Bill Cosby was denied an early release from prison by the parole board. This request denial is Cosby’s first, but it might not be the last.
In September 2018, Bill Cosby was sentenced to 3 to 10 years in prison after he was convicted of aggravated indecent assault against Andrea Constand. He maintains his innocence and wants out of the slammer in a big way.
The Pennsylvania Parole Board said that a lot of factors weighed into their decision to keep Cosby behind bars. He did not participate in a treatment program for sex offenders and he did not develop a release plan either.
It was also reported that Bill Cosby received a negative recommendation from the Department Of Corrections. It looks like Cliff Huxtable wasn’t doing what he needed to do while incarcerated. It’s unclear if the board’s decision would have been different if he did those things.
Andrew Wyatt, Cosby’s rep said that Bill isn’t surprised by the denial because members of the parole board told him that he would be denied since he skipped out on the sex offender program.
Cosby is still hopeful that the Pennsylvania State Supreme Court will vacate his conviction and maybe grant him a new trial.
