Bill Cosby won’t be getting out anytime soon—Pennsylvania parole board refused to grand his wish after the appeal by the veteran actor.
According to the board, Bill Cosby has refused to partake in sex offenders programs during his almost three years in state prison in Pennsylvania.
The 83-year-old actor Bill Cosby earlier said he would thwart the therapy programs and refuse to acknowledge wrongdoing even if it means serving the full 10-year term.
This is the first year Bill Cosby was qualified for parole in the three- to 10-year judgment after his 2018 conviction.
Bill Cosby is somehow confident that the state Supreme Court, which sat on his appeal in December, will overturn his conviction in the first celebrity trial of the #MeToo era.

Nonetheless, Cosby’s lawyers say the trial was flawed because five other accusers were permitted to testify to support the sexual assault complaint filed by a former Temple University basketball team manager.
They also say Cosby’s accuser, accuser Andrear testimony should’t have been allowed by the judges—since it related to a civil suit.
Cosby is serving his sentence at SCI-Phoenix in Montgomery County. The case stems from a 2004 encounter with Constand at his estate near Philadelphia.
Cosby rises to fame in Hollywood in the 1960s and had a top-ranked sitcom, “The Cosby Show,” on television from 1984 to 1992.
