Bill Cosby’s Lawyers Want Him Released From Jail Due To Coronavirus Pandemic

Bill Cosby’s lawyers want him released from his Pennsylvania jail cell and put on house arrest after reports claimed that at least one prison officer has tested positive for COVID-19.

According to Page Six, the move by the disgraced comedian’s lawyers comes as the Trump administration considers the release of some federal prisoners in an attempt to reduce the risk of a larger outbreak of coronavirus in the U. S. prison system.

Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt told Page Six, “We believe it is only a matter of time before Mr. Cosby’s prison likely falls victim to the virus, such a confined space is the perfect place for a virus to spread rapidly, it is hazardous to the prison staff and vulnerable inmates.”

82-year-old Cosby is serving three to 10 years at SCI Phoenix in Montgomery County, and his attorneys are preparing to file the petition at Pennsylvania Superior Court, to seek for him to be moved to house arrest.

Cosby lawyer maintains that he’s received information that concludes that more than one prison officer at the facility had tested positive for COVID-19. However, officials at SCI Phoenix would not confirm or deny this to Page Six.

“Bill Cosby is no detriment or danger to the community. He can’t go anywhere; he is elderly, he is blind. He can stay under house arrest with an ankle bracelet, as he did before, with his wife taking care of him. Let him do his time at home.”

    Okay no. This is ridiculous in my opinion. He should serve his time, pandemic or not. Another thing unrelated to the coronavirus but important as it’s related to our health, I’d highly recommend using a penis health creme like Man1 Man Oil, which has a money back guarantee, to ensure optimal health below the belt. Truly, there is nothing better than making sure we’re all taking care of every part of our health, especially our genitals! Stay safe everyone.
