Bill Cosby Says Freedom ‘Looks Good’ On Him

Media Take Out Staff |

Bill Cosby celebrated a year since he was released from prison with a post on Instagram.

“After two years and 10 months fighting for my life and the truth – one year of freedom home with my family sure looks good on me (At least that’s what my wife says),” he wrote.

Cosby was released from prison on a technicality and last week, a civil jury found him guilty of sexually abusing a woman named Judy Huth when she was 16 years old in 1975.

“Yesterday actor and comedian Bill Cosby was awarded an astonishing victory by jurors in a civil trial brought by Judy Huth,” Cosby’s spokesperson, Andrew Wyatt. said in a statement at the time. “The jurors decided to grant Judy Huth with a $500,000 verdict but voted 9-3 in favor of not rewarding Ms. Huth any punitive damages.”

Cosby’s lawyer Jennifer Bonjean said the team will appeal the verdict.

“Within a few weeks, Attorney Jennifer Bonjean will be in Judge Craig D. Karlan court to appeal the $500,000 verdict, which means that Ms. Huth will never receive a payday from Mr. Cosby and her estimated mounting legal bills ($3 million plus dollars) with Allred, Maroko & Goldberg will be outstanding for many years to come,” the statement says. “If the jurors had awarded punitive damages to Judy Huth it would have been in the range of $10 million plus dollars, which would have been a devastating loss to our legal efforts and the Cosby family.”
