WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court says it will not take up the sexual assault case against comedian Bill Cosby, leaving in place a decision by Pennsylvania's highest court to throw out his conviction and set him free from prison.

The high court Monday declined prosecutors' request to hear the case and reinstate Cosby's conviction. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court last year threw out Cosby's conviction, saying the prosecutor who brought the case was bound by his predecessor's agreement not to charge Cosby.

The Supreme Court did not say anything in rejecting the case. The case was included in a long list of cases the court said Monday it would not hear.
