Based on perceived errors made during his sexual assault case and trial, the legal team is also working to get the judge on Cosby's case removed. Cosby's attorneys have previously taken issue with the judge's wife being a psychiatrist who works with sexual assault victims. But in the motion reportedly filed on Friday, Cosby's attorneys argued that evidence presented during trial did not provide sufficient proof that the alleged assault took place in 2004, rather than 2003, and that Cosby, who was arrested in 2015, was actually arrested within the 12-year limit. Per the news outlet, the legal team claimed Judge Steven O'Neill was mistaken to label Cosby a sexually violent predator.

"The defendant, William H. Cosby, Jr., moves this Court for a new trial in the interest of justice, or at least for reconsideration and modification of the sentence imposed on September 25, 2018", the motion says, according to Deadline. Those allegations did not result in charges.
