Emotion ran high outside the court where 81-year-old comedian Bill Cosby was sentenced to three to 10 years in prison for sexual assault. The prosecutor said Cosby has been ‘unmasked’ as a predator and a light shone on how he used his fame and fortune to ‘hide his true self and hide his crimes.’ Cosby was convicted in April of knocking Andrea Constand out with pills and molesting her at his suburban Philadelphia home. She’s among about 60 women who came forward to accuse Cosby of sexual misconduct
We earlier reported that Bill Cosby is doing everything humanly possible to appeal his conviction after he resolved to changing his legal team members hour before his appeal hearing.

Bill Cosby is switching up his legal teamas he looks to appeal his conviction and three- to 10-year sentence in his Pennsylvania sex assault case.
A court filing Friday says the 81-year-old Cosby is replacing the suburban Philadelphia lawyer who handled his sentencing with a pair of criminal defense attorneys.
Joseph Green is exiting after about four months on Cosby’s defense team. The new lawyers are Brian Perry and Kristen Weisenberger of Harrisburg.
Another lawyer, Peter Goldberger, worked with Green on a motion last week challenging the outcome of the case, a first step toward an appeal.
More than a dozen lawyers have come and gone from the case, including Tom Mesereau, who once represented Michael Jackson.
Another ex-Cosby lawyer is suing over what he says is more than $280,000 in unpaid bills.
