‘One year home with my family sure looks good on me’: Bill Cosby brags about his home life with wife a week after civil court found him guilty of sexually assaulting a woman at the Playboy mansion in 1975 and ordered him to pay her $500,000
- Convicted sex pest Cosby, 84, was accused of sexual assault by 60 women
- Comic acquitted and released on a technicality – but found guilty by a civil court
- Cosby reportedly cheered when he heard he only had to pay victim $500,000
- Disgraced TV star posted happy pic and stated he now gets one year of ‘freedom’
Bill Cosby boasted that has enjoyed ‘one year of freedom home with my family’ – days after a court ordered him to pay $500,000 to a woman he allegedly assaulted.
The disgraced ex-TV star, 84, posted a picture to Instagram wearing a bright yellow shirt with the caption: ‘After two years and 10 months fighting for my life and the truth – one year of freedom home with my family sure looks good on me.
‘(At least that’s what my wife says).’
Cosby, 84, was convicted of sexual assault in 2018. He spent two years and ten months behind bars.
But he was released last June after a court overturned his conviction on a technicality.
Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that prosecutors in the case had violated Cosby’s rights by reneging on a promise not to charge him.

Last week an LA civil court ordered Cosby to pay $500,000 to 64-year-old Judy Huth, who accused the convicted sex pest of sexually assaulting her at the Playboy Mansion in 1975.
She was 16 at the time.
Cosby reportedly cheered when he was informed that he didn’t have to pay punitive damages.
He was accused by more than 60 women of rape, drug-facilitated sexual assault, sexual battery, child sexual abuse, and sexual misconduct, in alleged incidents that spanned from 1965 to 2008.

Huth’s lawsuit was one of the last remaining legal claims against him after his insurer settled many others against his will.
When did Cosby walk free?
Cosby did not attend the trial or testify in person, but short clips from 2015 video deposition were played for jurors, in which he denied any sexual contact with Huth.
Today’s Instagram photo was taken by Cosby’s longtime rep Andrew Wyatt.
Rep Wyatt told DailyMail.com last week that his client was thrilled with Judge Craig Karlan’s verdict – due to the fact the jury didn’t award Huth millions.
‘He said, “That’s a victory, not having to pay Huth punitive legal bills,”‘ Wyatt said Wednesday, revealing he called Cosby immediately after the verdict to tell him of the lack of punitive damages.
‘He was happy that no punitive [damages] were awarded,’ Wyatt told DailyMail.com.
‘What? That’s all?’ the comic reportedly asked, according to TMZ – before being met with a celebratory ‘booyah!’ from his PR specialist.
