Recently, comedian “Bill Cosby” is facing a hard time and fighting back for his sexual assault charges despite his worst health condition.

The source close to Cosby told Page Six:
His alleged victims may take some solace in the fact that he’s in his own personal hell. He has been suffering from a degenerative eye disease and is completely blind . . All his Hollywood friends have turned their backs on him.
He further added:
He is confined to his house in Pennsylvania, and the only person on his side is his wife, Camille, who is masterminding his defense. His only friends are the small army of lawyers on his payroll.
Bill has been suffering from Keratoconus. It leads to a thinning cornea that bulges in a conical shape. In 2015, his attorney Monique Pressley explained:
He’s 78 years old, and blind, so he does use a cane so that he can know what’s coming in front of him and he does require assistance.
Despite Bill’s health issues, he is facing an accusation of sexual assault and is on a trial period. Accuser “Andrea Constand” accuses Bill giving her drug pills and raped her at his Pennsylvania home in 2004.
On the court, the jury failed to reach a prognosis after they spend more than 52 hours of contemplation which led Judge Steven O’Neill to declare a mistrial on June 17. He signed an order which says all parties must report to the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pennsylvania, on November 6. He also ordered attorneys to submit jury selection questions and instructions by October, 30. Till then, Bill Cosby remains on bail.
As Bill departs from the court on day second of the jury contemplation, he yelled Fat Albert’s catchphrase “Hey, hey, hey” while a crowd of fans was greeting him.

AIG wants more time before it makes over $675,000 in legal fees to fortified Comedian Bill Cosby against the claims.
