PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Bill Cosby was freed from prison yesterday after Pennsylvania’s highest court overturned his sexual assault conviction.

It was a stunning reversal of fortune for the comedian once known as “America’s Dad.” The state Supreme Court said Wednesday that the prosecutor who brought the case was bound by his predecessor’s agreement not to charge Cosby. The 83-year-old Cosby served nearly three years of a three- to 10-year sentence.

Cosby was promptly set free from the state prison in suburban Montgomery County and driven home.
