Bill Cosby, previously known as Americas Dad, was found guilty on three counts of aggravated indecent assault in 2018 for an incident with Andrea Constand, a Temple University worker, and was sentenced to more than two years in state prison. He has recently spoken out about the day he discovered his 10-year sentence had been reversed for the first time since being released.
Cosby spoke with Frankie Darcell, a radio host, on Thursday, according to Radar Online. During the interview, the 84-year-old actor and comedian left the Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, jail facility.
I was napping in my cell which I called my penthouse suite on the Phoenix Correction property for ten years. I heard the cell door openthen all of a sudden, I just hear this yelling: Mr. Cosby, you have to go home. Youre free, Mr. Cosby!
Andrews' words to me were: Your wife got you out of jail, and I said, Yes I know my wife did it. She did it without a pistol. And we drove.
After discussing the time he learned he would be released from the state prison, Cosby talked about the other prisoners he encountered while serving his term, how it felt to be free, and how it felt to be walking around.
Cosby posted a picture of himself smiling the day before his first anniversary of being free. That day will be commemorated on June 30, 2021, the anniversary of his release. Cosby hosted a dinner gathering with some of his closest family members and friends to commemorate the one-year anniversary of his conviction being reversed.
