NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Bill Cosby’s trial judge is rejecting the actor’s bid for a new trial or sentencing hearing and directing him to file any appeals with the state Superior Court.

Cosby is serving a three- to 10-year state prison term after a jury earlier this year convicted him of drugging and molesting a woman at his home in 2004.

Montgomery County Judge Steven O’Neill said he did an “exhaustive review” of Cosby’s post-trial motion outlining alleged trial errors as well as the response from prosecutors. O’Neill did not attach an opinion to the order filed Tuesday.

Cosby’s lawyers call the sentence unnecessarily harsh and say the time limit to file charges may have run out before Cosby was arrested in 2015.

The 81-year-old actor is serving time at a state prison near Philadelphia.
