Disgraced actor Bill Cosby filed another appeal Tuesday in regards to his sexual assault conviction.

Cosby, 81, argued that some of his accusers should not have been allowed to testify, according to a report published Tuesday by Page Six. The “Cosby Show” actor was sentenced to three to 10 years in prison for drugging and molesting Andrea Constand back in 2004.

In April, Cosby was found guilty on three counts of aggravated indecent assault for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004 and faces a maximum of 10 years in prison. 60 women have accused the 81 year old entertainer of sexual assault.

The appeal filed by Cosby’s lawyers claimed the “conviction was not based on any credible evidence that he actually committed the crimes for which he was on trial.”

Cosby’s lawyers argued testimony from five of the actor’s alleged victims should not have been allowed. (RELATED: REPORT: Bill Cosby Gives Fellow Inmates Life Advice)

“The evidence was used to strip Cosby of his presumption of innocence and to try to establish that Cosby had the propensity to sexually assault women,” his lawyers said. “This evidence never should have been admitted at trial.”

“It had absolutely nothing to do with the crimes for which Cosby was on trial,” the lawyers added.

Cosby originally filed an appeal in a lower court back in December of 2018. In April, Cosby’s lawyers claimed the judge in the case was racist and convicted Cosby based off of his skin color. They demanded the judge be removed and Cosby be released on bail.

During the highly-publicized trial, more than 60 women came forward to accuse Cosby of sexually assaulting them. Cosby denied any wrong-doing.
