Bill Cosby Denied Parole. Former “America’s Dad” Bill Cosby remains behind bars. Unfortunately, he may have to do all of his sentence.
Why did Bill refuse institutional program?
Bill Cosby denied parole. The elderly comedian/actor refuses to comply. The Pennsylvania Parole Board ruled that Bill’s failure to complete treatment was an issue.
Therefore, his getting out of prison early is a no go. The program is for treatment for sexual offenders, as reported by NBC News.
There was a possibility Bill would have been released sometime this year. Now, Bill’s spokesman did not say when he could be releases. Also, there were other determining factors.
His failure to develop a release plan, and negative recommendation from the state Department of Corrections were considered, as well. However, there is a ray of hope for Bill.
Andrew Wyatt, Bill’s spokesman said in a statement Bill and his family are hopeful. The fight for his freedom could be in the hands of the state Supreme Court.
Of course, Bill has appealed to have his conviction overturned. Whether or not this will happen remains to be seen. In the meantime, prison is Bill’s home indefinitely.
