Bill Cosby Hires Former Michael Jackson Lawyer Tom Mesereau

While dozens of women have accused Cosby of assaulting them, sometimes after plying them with drugs and alcohol, all but one of the alleged incidents was too old to be the subject of criminal prosecution.

Troubled comedian Bill Cosby is turning to Michael Jackson's attorney to help get him off in his sexual assault retrial, has learned.

Meanwhile, Mesereau's other famous cases include actor Robert Blake's trial and subsequent acquittal for his wife's murder. He has also represented boxer Mike Tyson, rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight and a Playboy bunny.

He will now spearhead Cosby's fight against sex assault charges after the comedian's first trial in Norristown, Pa., ended with a hung jury in June.

Mesereau will be joined by ex-federal prosecutor Kathleen Bliss and Philadelphia attorney Sam Silver, according to U.S. News and World Report.

When asked if he would play in the game , Bryant responded, "Come on, man". "It's a blessing to be playing for America's Team". The Cowboys spent four weeks practicing in Southern California ahead of Saturday's home game at AT&T Stadium in Dallas.

Cosby's first trial resulted in a mistrial after the jury couldn't come to a consensus on any of the three charges against Cosby.

McMonagle, who has been by the comic's side since the Constand case began in 2015, formally filed paperwork requesting an exit earlier this month (Aug17), while Agrusa filed her motion to withdraw from the team last week (ends18Aug17).

All three new defense lawyers will appear Tuesday at a hearing scheduled by Montgomery County Judge Steven T. O'Neill to discuss any pretrial issues that will have to be addressed before the scheduled November 6 trial.

Cosby, 80, has pleaded not guilty to drugging and sexually assaulting Temple University staffer Andrea Constand inside his suburban Philadelphia mansion in 2004.

On his bio page, Mesereau notes how he was lead trial counsel for a prominent plastic surgeon in Los Angeles.
