Bill Cosby has reportedly been denied parole by the Pennsylvania Parole Board over a few miscalculations.

The aggravated indecent assault case with Andrea Constand that landed Bill Cosby in prison in 2019 saw the disgraced actor/comedian with a sentence of 3 to 10 years. Nearly three full years after his sentencing, Bill Cosby had reportedly applied for parole. However, Cosby’s request for parole has reportedly been denied.

According to TMZ, the Pennsylvania Parole Board stated there were multiple reasons for denying Bill Cosby a release.

Bill Cosby supposedly consistently failed to attend and participate in a treatment program for sex offenders, and furthermore, Cosby also did not develop and present a parole release plan at the time of his request. Those strikes combined with a negative recommendation from the Department of Corrections.

Andrew Wyatt who represents the iconic comedian as his publicist, reportedly told TMZ that Cosby’s team isn’t surprised by the denial. The team is also not giving up plans to get Cosby out on parole. According to TMZ, Wyatt also reveals that Cosby remains optimistic that the Pennsylvania State Supreme Court will overturn his conviction or possibly grant him a new trial.

Do you think Cosby situation will soon get better for him in terms of not doing the full 10 year term?
