A short time after Bill Cosby’s rape conviction was tossed out on Wednesday, the 83-year-old released a statement on Twitter.
“I have never changed my stance nor my story. I have always maintained my innocence. Thank you to all my fans, supporters and friends who stood by me through this ordeal. Special thanks to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court for upholding the rule of law. #BillCosby”
The comedian and actor served almost three years before the court overturned the conviction citing a “process violation” by the prosecution. In 2018, Cosby was found guilty of drugging and molesting Andrea Constand.
Cosby was released from prison late Wednesday.
