Bill Cosby’s television wife and newly-appointed dean of Howard University College of Fine Arts, Philisia Rashad, came under fire on Wednesday after celebrating the release of a controversial comedian from prison.

Earlier this morning, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court overturned Cosby’s conviction for sexual assault as a result of an agreement with a former prosecutor that would have prevented him from being prosecuted in the case. The resolution prohibits any retrial on the case, stated in court documents.

The 83-year-old comedian was sentenced in 2004 to three to 10 years in prison on charges of sexual assault and drug possession against Andrea Constanda. Sixty women across the two countries have come to accuse the Cosby Show star of rape or sexual assault. , many of whom were drugged during these meetings, he said.

“Finally,” Rashad wrote on Twitter with capital letters and a series of exclamation marks. “A terrible mistake is being made – justice has been corrected.”

Rashad, who played the role of Cosby’s wife in two TV shows, was recently appointed re-elected dean of Howard University and renamed Chadwick A. Boseman College of Fine Arts. This position makes Rashad the first responsible for sexual harassment in the city, which is located on campus.

Howard University officials did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Acesparks.

Rashad previously defended Cosby, to call some allegations of abuse against him “organized.”

His tweet has raised concerns about how he could deal with allegations of sexual assault in his role as dean.
