Bill Cosby has replaced his lawyers as he awaits sentencing on sexual-assault charges. Cosby has now hired Joseph Green Jr, a criminal defense lawyer based in Chester County. Green has already filed court documents to enter his appearance in the case.
The legal team for his April trial — Los Angeles-based Tom Mesereau, Becky James, as well as Las Vegas lawyer Kathleen Bliss and Philadelphia lawyer Lane Vines, won’t be representing him through sentencing, Cosby publicist Andrew Wyatt disclosed.
Wyatt declined to comment on what or who prompted the change, as did Mesereau.
