The heat is getting a little too real for Bill Cosby, it would seem.
According to sources close to the comedian, he is looking for a plea deal from prosecutors that will, he hopes, help him avoid prison time over his alleged sex crimes.
Cosby, you’ll remember, has been charged with three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault for a 2004 incident involving a former college student in Philadelphia.
He has also been accused of drugging and raping more than 50 other women, including some who have made extremely public pronouncements against him.
Regarding the plea deal, the source revealed some pretty damning information:
“He and his family, including his wife, Camille, are adamant that Bill won’t be able to convince a jury to let him off. Cosby and his family believe he’ll be eligible for a sentence of just probation . . . and remove the threat of him dying in prison. They are hoping that the district attorney will feel as though he’s won with a plea deal and they’re thinking that the DA will consider Cosby’s age, his medical condition, the fact that he’s paid the victim on the case millions, and the fact that his career is over.”
And while the District Attorney’s Office in Pennsylvania won’t comment about the case, or a prospective plea deal, it sure would be BIG news if it happens.
…not to mention a sure sign of the (lack of) confidence Cosby had in his defense against these sex crime allegations.
