Bill Cosby’s due process rights were not violated by the 11-year delay in his arrest, Pennsylvania prosecutors argued in a strongly worded new court filing following Cosby’s latest motion to dismiss the sexual assault case against him.
“Defendant seeks to avoid facing a jury of his peers — yet again — by asking this Court for the dismissal of charges against him,” Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele said in a Tuesday response to Cosby’s motion, which was filed earlier this month.
The comedian’s defense team argued he has been “deprived of his due process rights,” and they alleged “serious prosecutorial and judicial impropriety.”
“This time [Cosby] complains of pre-arrest delay,” Steele responded in the prosecution’s filing this week. “He is an individual who has used his fame and fortune for decades to conceal his crimes and hide his true nature. He is not entitled to a dismissal now that the law has caught up to him.” CLICK FOR MORE
