Deadline has learned that Cosby has now retained Pennsylvania attorney Joseph P. Green Jr. The established lawyer takes over from the high-profile team led by Tom Mesereau.
Mesereau efforts did not prevent a Norristown, PA jury from finding Cosby guilty of three counts of aggravated indecent assault in a retrial that ended April 26.

He previously cut ties with longtime attorney Marty Singer back in late 2015, Green is Cosby’s fourth primary lawyer since then.
Cosby faces decades behind bars and he’s currently under house arrest. He is set to be sentenced after a two-day hearing September 24-25.
More than 60 women have claimed in recent years that he sexually assaulted or drugged them, with some incidents occurring as far back the late 1960s.
Despite admitting in depositions more than a decade ago to giving Constand Benadryl pills on the night of the alleged assault in his Philadelphia-area mansion nearly 13 years ago, Cosby has insisted that the encounter was consensual.
