Pennsylvania’s highest court has overturned comedian Bill Cosby’s sex assault conviction.
The court said Wednesday that it found an agreement with a previous prosecutor prevented him from being charged in the case.
The 83-year-old Cosby has served more than two years at a state prison near Philadelphia.
He has vowed to serve his full 10-year sentence rather than acknowledge any remorse over the 2004 encounter.
Cosby, who was once beloved as “America’s Dad,” was charged in 2015 when a prosecutor armed with new evidence arrested him days before the 12-year statute of limitations expired.
Cosby's publicist Andrew Wyatt told ABC News he would be picking up Cosby to leave prison within hours.
