Bill Cosby has been convicted on three counts of sexual aggravated assault, and is now facing up to 30 years in prison. While the legendary actor has already been stripped of several honorary degrees and certificates due to the allegations and charges, his alma mater, Temple University, is the latest institution to remove their credentials from his resume.
Temple University released the following statement:
“In 1991, based on his career achievements, Temple awarded an honorary degree to William Cosby. Yesterday, Dr. Cosby was found guilty by a jury of the felony of aggravated sexual assault. Today the Temple University Board of Trustees has accepted the recommendation of the University to rescind the honorary degree.”
Cosby served as a member on the board for decades, resigning in 2014, according to TMZ. His accuser, Andrea Constand, is a former women’s basketball administrator at the school.
Re-runs of The Cosby Show have also been removed from BOUNCE TV’s line-up following his conviction.
