After being found guilty of a 2004 sexual assault against Andrea Constand, Bill Cosby has fired his entire legal team.

According to The New York Times, Cosby released the team led by Tim Mesereau, the same man who defended Michael Jackson.

Cosby’s publicist Andrew Wyatt confirmed the news to The Times via email.

“The entire defense team has been replaced.”

Wyatt said that Cosby’s new lawyer is Joseph P. Green, a Philadelphia lawyer whose practice specializes in criminal defense and personal injury cases.

Mesereau would not comment on the reason he’s no longer representing the embattled comedian. “I wish Mr. Cosby, his family and his new legal team all the best.”

Cosby is facing up to 30 years in prison for three counts of aggravated indecent assault after jurors found that he drugged and then molested Andrea Constand, a former basketball official at Temple University, in his home.

Cosby is scheduled to be sentenced in September.
