Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

(NBC) -- A Pennsylvania appeals court has rejected Bill Cosby's bid to overturn his sexual assault conviction.

Lawyers for Cosby, the first celebrity tried and convicted in the wake of the #MeToo movement, argued that the trial judge improperly allowed testimony from five other accusers.

The court, however, said the testimony showed a pattern of drugging and sexual assault.

The 82-year-old cosby is serving a 3-10 year prison term for the 2004 encounter at his suburban Philadelphia home.

He can now ask the state supreme court to consider his appeal.
