The Details Behind Cosby’s Case
The Cosby Show star was charged in late 2015 after being arrested just days before the 12 year statue of limitations was up. The original incident occurred in 2004. Cosby’s alleged victim was Andrea Constand, a Temple University employee who accused him of the crimes. She says Cosby drugged and molested her at his property.
“Cosby has served more than two years of a three- to 10-year sentence at a state prison near Philadelphia. He had vowed to serve all 10 years rather than acknowledge any remorse over the 2004 encounter with accuser Andrea Constand.”
Bill Cosby Salutes Boosie Badazz
Louisiana rapper Boosie Badazz has a supporter in Bill Cosby. The jailed comedy veteran took to social media last winter to thank him for his support and to send an outpouring of love.
Cosby’s Twitter account sent out a message to Boosie, who has publicly denied the allegations against Cosby and vocalized his support in the past. He gave him a thank you salute and also wished the hip-hop veteran a quick recovery after being shot in the leg several weekends ago.
“On this 10th day of December 2020…I will pay homage to those who have supported me and my family, simply by saying, thank you. The first person to be recognized on Thank You Thursday is Rapper @BOOSIEOFFICIAL Thank you for your support & I’m praying for you to have … a speedy recovery and for your mobility to be restored. Again, thank you very much. #ThankYouThursday #ThankYouBoosie #GetHealthyBoosie” -Bill Cosby’s Twitter
