A bipartisan group of Pennsylvania’s State Senators are looking to make a significant change to the laws involving non-prosecution agreements after the state’s Supreme Court overturned Bill Cosby’s sexual assault conviction. A republican, Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Lisa Baker and a democrat, Steve Santarsiero, have cosponsored a bill that would require all future non-prosecution agreements to be in writing before they can be enforced. A large part of Cosby’s case in front of the court relied on a verbal promise from an Assistant Montgomery County DA not to prosecute Cosby if he agreed to testify at a civil case brought against him by one of his accusers. That testimony was later used as evidence against Cosby at his criminal trial.
