Bill Cosby Replaces Head Lawyer Ahead of Criminal Trial
Angela Agrusa of Liner L.L.P. will take over for Pressley, who has worked tirelessly to defend Cosby against the countless allegations of sexual assault.
Agrusa will be Cosby’s lead lawyer in the pending criminal case in Pennsylvania where he has been charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault. The charges come after Cosby allegedly drugged and sexually assaulted former Temple University employee Andrea Constand in 2004
This is not the first time Cosby’s changed lawyers ahead of a case; just last month Agrusa replaced Los Angeles-based attorney, Christopher Tayback.
“Mr. Cosby keeps playing musical chairs with his attorneys as he keeps losing in court, both in our case and in the criminal case in Pennsylvania where the alleged victim is Andrea Constand,”Huth’s attorney Gloria Allred said in a statement to People. “We wonder if we have seen the last change in his legal team or whether continued losses will have us see further changes. Despite the many changes in his legal team representatives, Mr. Cosby will not be able to avoid having to face a jury in a court of law.”
