PHILADELPHIA: A judge on Tuesday rejected Bill Cosby’s bid for
a new trial or sentencing hearing, leading the comedian’s wife,
Camille, to again accuse the judge of bias against her husband.

The ruling by the same judge that presided over Cosby’s trial
also led the entertainer’s lawyers to file their appeal with the
state Superior Court, the next step in trying to reverse his felony
s*x assault conviction.

Cosby is serving a 3-to-10-year state prison term after a jury
this year found he drugged and molested a woman in 2004. The
defense wants the 81-year-old actor released on bail while he
appeals over alleged trial errors.
