Pennsylvania appeals court upholds Bill Cosby's sex assault conviction

A Pennsylvania appeals court has upheld Bill Cosby's sexual assault conviction and rejected his argument that the case was wrongly decided against him.
The comedian's legal team filed an extensive appeal of Cosby's conviction in June. 
The appeal argued the trial court ruled incorrectly in eight decisions, including by allowing five prior witnesses to testify and by reading the jury excerpts from Cosby's civil deposition in which he says he got Quaaludes to give to women.
The Superior Court of Pennsylvania reviewed each of the eight decisions and rejected Cosby's appeal in each instance.
The 82 year old was found guilty of three counts of aggravated indecent assault in April 2018 for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his home in 2004. 
At the time, Constand was an employee for the women's basketball team at Temple University, where Cosby was a powerful trustee and mentor.
