The 81-year-old jailed comedian’s legal team is going through another shake-up. Pennsylvania-based attorney Joseph Green Jr., who represented Bill Cosby during sentencing, filed court papers Friday to have himself withdrawn from the case.
Cosby, a.k.a. inmate NO. NN7687, will continue to appeal his sentencing via lawyers Brian W. Perry and Kristen L. Weisenberger.
The Puddin’ Pop spokesman is appealing his three-10 year sentence behind bars after being convicted of sexual assault. In all, more than a dozen lawyers have worked on the case, the most prominent of whom was former Michael Jackson legal eagle Tom Mesereau. One lawyer has slapped Cosby with a suit over $280K in unpaid bills.
