Things Are Looking Worse Than Ever For Bill Cosby

A judge made a crucial ruling in the fallen icon’s case today.

Time is winding down for Bill Cosby and things aren't looking well for the fallen comedian as his final attempt at getting his way was swiftly shut down by a judge.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cosby's latest bid to overturn his rape conviction has been denied. This isn't the first time the 81-year-old's recusal motion has been shut down. Back in March of this year, the same occurred prior to the retrial.

Cosby's sentencing will take place, as scheduled, next week.

"And now this 19th day of September, 2018, upon consideration of the Defendant's Motion for Disclosure, Recusal and For Reconsideration of Recusal, and supporting Memorandum of Law, filed September 11, 2018, and the Commonwealth's Response thereto, filed September 13, 2018, it is hereby ORDERED and DECREED that the Motion is DENIED in its entirety," Judge Stephen O'Neill wrote on Wednesday.

Expounding on his decision, O'Neill added, "This Court simply has no bias against any witness called by the defense or the Defendant himself. This Court finds no merit in any of the bases alleged by the Defendant and the Court will not recuse itself."

This all comes five months after the former TV dad was found guilty on all three counts of aggravated indecent assault, back in April, during what is now a renowned retrial. His criminal charges carry a maximum possible sentence of 30 years behind bars.
