The case against Cosby, charged in a 12-year-old sexual assault, can proceed, a judge ruled recently. Cosby’s lawyers had argued that he had been granted immunity years ago. He faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted. He currently is free on $1 million bail pending trial

West isn’t the first celebrity to weigh in.

Cosby’s lawyers sought a dismissal of the Pennsylvania case and claimed the prosecutor is using the matter for political gain.

As the legal proceeding unfold, Cosby continues to face recriminations in the court of public opinion. He recently was stripped of another honorary degree, this time from George Washington University.

He already was stripped of the honorary degree bestowed upon him by Boston University and Atlanta’s Spelman College moved to distance itself from the comedian, actor and celebrity pitchman. The school announced last year it would end a professorship tied to Cosby and return the money.
