Bill Cosby has been refused parole after failing to take part in sex offender rehabilitation programmes during his time in prison in the US.

The actor, now 83, has been behind bars for three years after been found guilty of drugging and sexually assaulting a woman over a decade ago.

At the time of his trial, he was sentenced to between three to ten years for the crime which could have made him eligible for parole this year. However, his refusal to take the classes means he will remain locked up—something it seems the Cosby star has been prepared for.Bill Cosby wearing a suit and tie: Bill Cosby.

Bill, who is legally blind, has been vocal about not taking the classes even if he is forced to serve his full sentence. Given his advanced years, this could mean that he remains in prison for the rest of his life—all because he feels that he’s innocent.

In spite of his admitting to giving Andrea Constand Benadryl on the night of the assault, he has continued to claim that they had consensual sex.

The actor is hopeful that an appeal lodged with the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania where he is incarcerated, last June, will give him back his freedom.a man wearing a suit and tie smiling at the camera: Andrea Constand. Pic: Rex© Provided by Evoke.ie Andrea Constand. Pic: Rex

Deadline quotes his spokesperson Andrew Wyatt in saying that the decision to deny him bail is ‘appalling’. He reiterated that the actor ‘vehemently proclaims his innocence and denies all allegations against him, as being false, without the sheer evidence of any proof.’

He went on to say that ‘today, Mr. Cosby remains hopeful that the Pennsylvania State Supreme Court will issue an opinion to vacate his conviction or warrant him a new trial.’Bill Cosby wearing a suit and tie: Bill Cosby. Pic: Rex© Provided by Evoke.ie Bill Cosby. Pic: Rex

His lawyers have argued that there were mistakes in the initial trial because five other accusers were allowed to give testimony to support the charge. As well as this, the jury heard evidence from Ms. Constand’s civil suit against the actor which they feel coloured the trial outcome.

To date over 60 women have accused the actor of drugging and assaulting them without consent.
