Bill Cosby‘s wife Camille is looking forward to her husband coming home while getting a chance to appeal his sexual assault conviction.
The disgraced comedian was sentenced to 3 to 10 years in prison in 2018 after he was found guilty of drugging and raping Temple University staff member Andrea Constand in 2004.
The star has repeatedly tried and failed to have the conviction overturned, arguing he did not receive a fair trial.
On Tuesday, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court agreed to review two aspects of the case against Cosby.
The Pennsylvania Supreme Court will also examine whether a prosecutor told Cosby he will not face criminal charges in Constand’s case after she accepted a financial settlement from the actor.
Camille is feeling optimistic that he will be released home while his case is under appeal.
She told ABC News Prime: “There are possibilities now. Finally, there is a court … that has said, ‘Wait a minute. There are some problems here. They can be considered for appeal.'”
She added: “I am very, very pleased… but now I’m looking at something that is possible. Possible for vindication. That is the goal.”
The 82-year-old comedian has been incarcerated for almost two years, but producer Camille said she has not visited her husband in prison.
“I do not want to see my husband in that kind of environment, and he doesn’t want me to see him in that kind of environment either.”
Camille insisted she and her husband communicate every day by phone.
Cosby’s representative revealed the actor was “extremely thankful” to the court judges for granting him an opportunity to fight the case, reported Variety magazine.
“As we have all stated, the false conviction of Bill Cosby is so much bigger than him – it’s about the destruction of ALL Black people and people of color in America,” the spokesperson added.
