Bill Cosby’s trial judge has rejected the disgraced comedian’s bid for a new trial or fresh sentencing hearing, after conducting “an exhausting review” of post-trial motions, it was reported on Tuesday, almost a month after he was sent to prison for sexual assault. . . .
The decision by the judge, Steven O’Neill, in Montgomery county, Pennsylvania, prompted Cosby’s lawyers to file their appeal with the state superior court, the next step in trying to reverse his felony sex assault conviction.
