A Pennsylvania law firm has another name for recently convicted sex offender Bill Cosby — deadbeat.

The iconic entertainer and star of “The Cosby Show,” “Fat Albert” and “I Spy” had been found guilty of the 2004 drugging and assault of Andrea Constand.

A hung jury was the result of Cosby’s first trial, but he was convicted of aggravated indecent assault in April. The second jury returned a unanimous verdict after a 12-day trial.

On Sept. 25, he was sentenced to a prison term between three and 10 years.

Schnader Harrison Segal &Lewis filed a complaint last week, demanding payment of over $282,000 in unpaid legal fees Cosby had accrued since June 2017 — 16 months after it took the funnyman on as a client, reported CBS News.

“Cosby’s spokesman and other employees made several promises to Schnader Harrison since (2017) that the payments were forthcoming,” read the complaint, according to Legal Intelligencer. “On Aug. 30, the complaint said, Silver told Cosby’s new lawyers by email that the firm would file a lawsuit on Sept. 4 if it was not paid by then.”

Constand considered Cosby a mentor the night he offered her three blue pills during a meeting. In testimony, she recounted thinking the pills were for stress. That’s when she began to lose balance and slur her words. Constand then told jurors she was helpless as he groped her and forced her to pleasure him.

“I wanted it to stop,” she said in an April court hearing. “I was weak. I was limp, and I could not fight him off.”
