Mai Gabra started this petition to Sexual assault survivors

Bill Cosby has 63 sexual assualt and misconduct allegations against him. He lured women into his home, drugged them and sexually assaulted them.

He was initially arrested from charges of a woman accusing him of doing that very thing in 2015 11 years earlier. In April 2018, the jury convicted him of three counts of aggravated assault against Andrea Constand, according to the New York Times. But, there was an appeal made for his case, his lawyers argued that the ruling was heavily affected by what they called a “public panic”. Cosby’s attorney encouraged him to testify, assuring him that he would not be charged. In this testimony, Cosby mentioned that he had in fact been using quaaludes, a sedative drug that is currently banned, on women he was perusing for sex. This played a key role in his trial and lead to the case being reopened. He was eventually charged and thankfully so, since the statue of limitations was drawing close. Many other survivors came forward which heavily aided in the charge.

Cosby had served three years of a three- to 10-year sentence at a maximum-security prison outside Philadelphia when the court ruled that a “non-prosecution agreement” with a previous prosecutor meant that Cosby should not have been charged in the case. Bill Cosby was released from prison Wednesday after Pennsylvania's highest court overturned his sexual assault conviction, saying the disgraced actor's due process rights were violated.

When I saw this news live on CNN, my heart broke for all of the survivors. Please help me in putting him back behind bars like he belongs.
