Bill Cosby s honorary degree revoked

Sunday - April 8, 2018 3:24 pm , Category : EDUCATION

Ohion April 8 (IANS) Veteran comedian Bill Cosby s honorary degree has been revoked by Ohio State University amid his retrial in a sexual assault case.



This is the first time the University has revoked an honorary degree reported hollywoodreporter.com.

University trustees approved rescinding the degree for the 80-year-old comedian whose retrial in a sexual assault case will begin on April 9 in suburban Philadelphia.

An Ohio State spokesman said: "Cosby has by his own admission violated the university s principles and values."

Cosby s retrial involves a woman who says he drugged and assaulted her in 2004. Cosby says the encounter was consensual.

His first trial ended in a hung jury in June last year.
