Prosecutors are requesting the US Supreme Court review the ruling that allowed Bill Cosby's conviction to be overturned.

Prosecutors say that Cosby's overturned conviction sets a dangerous precedent, also noting that the chief judge in the case could not clearly recount key facts of the case when discussing the case be overturned.

“This decision as it stands will have far-reaching negative consequences beyond Montgomery County and Pennsylvania. The US Supreme Court can right what we believe is a grievous wrong," Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele wrote in the petition, reports the Associated Press.

The Cosby legal team has said that Cosby only admitted to wrongdoing during a testimony in an accuser's civil suit in 2006, where in he was promised that he would not be charged. That testimony would then be used against him in two criminal trials. That promise, however, only exists in a 2005 press release from then-prosecutor Bruce Castor.

Cosby, 84, was found guilty of drugging and molesting college sports administrator Andrea Constand in 2004. He spent three years behind bars before being released by the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania in June.

The US Supreme Court accepts less than 1 percent of the petitions it receives, according to the Citizen.
