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.

With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
