The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Expels Bill Cosby

The Frame is reporting Bill Cosby and director Roman Polanski have been expelled from the The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The news was made public via a tweet Thursday.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Board of Governors met on Tuesday night (May 1) and has voted to expel actor Bill Cosby and director Roman Polanski from its membership in accordance with the organization’s Standards of Conduct. The board continues to encourage ethical standards that requires members to uphold the Academy’s values of respect for human dignity.

A jury of seven men and five women found comedian Bill Cosby guilty on all three counts of sexual assault after deliberating for 14 hours. Cosby was fitted with a GPS tracking device and must stay at home until he is sentenced. He faces up to 30 years in prison, ten years for each count.

Polanski remains a fugitive after fleeing the U.S. in 1978 after admitting to having unlawful sex with a minor.
