Supreme Court won't review decision that freed Bill Cosby

Two Way Talk conversation with Sheryl Wood, former federal prosecutor and principal at The Wood Law Firm

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A spokesperson for Bill Cosby says the 84-year-old comedian is considering a final standup tour after the U.S. Supreme Court said it would not revive the sexual assault case against him.

The court's announcement Monday leaves in place a decision by Pennsylvania’s highest court to throw out Cosby's conviction and free him from prison.

The state court had said the prosecutor was bound by a predecessor's agreement not to charge Cosby.

Accuser Andrea Constand and her lawyers say the Supreme Court's announcement is “an unfortunate outcome” for sexual assault survivors.

They note the trial judge found no evidence such an agreement was ever made.
