Bill Cosby spends first night in state prison

Bill Cosby spends first night in state prison

The 81-year-old comedian was sentenced Tuesday to three to 10 years in prison and declared a "sexually violent predator", relegating him to a lifetime on a sex offender registry.

At least 60 women have accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault, with one 2004 case, Andrea Constand's, leading to Cosby's conviction in April on three counts of aggravated indecent assault.

Cosby must serve the minimum of three years before becoming eligible for parole.

A judge on September 25 declared Cosby a "sexually violent predator" just before he was sentenced.

Cosby's lawyers asked that he be allowed to remain free on bail while he appeals his conviction, but the judge ordered him locked up immediately, saying that "he could quite possibly be a danger to the community".

Cosby's legal team; however, argued that he should be sent home on house arrest because he is old, frail and legally blind.

The prison is brand new after opening in July and can house up to 3,830 inmates.


In recent years, dozens of women said that Cosby sexually abused them over several decades.

"34 months this has gone on", O'Neill said. "It is no accident that prosecutor still works so close with anti-black and anti-male activist groups who tried to extort $100 million from Dr. Cosby in 2014 and continues to produce racist and sexist publicity against him through the 35 clients". His wife of 54 years, Camille, was not in court.

Women's advocates hailed Cosby's sentence as a landmark #MeToo moment. He also expressed of compassion to any warden tasked with keeping Bill Cosby alive during his jail sentence, giving the precarious nature of his charges.

Constand testified that Cosby gave her what she thought were herbal pills to ease stress, then penetrated her with his fingers as she lay immobilized on a couch. Wyatt continued on, comparing Cosby's trial to Brett Kavanaugh's hearings and claiming that there is a "sex war" against these men.

"Using his power and prestige within the community, he is able to meet people, befriend them, and it is during that friendship that the sexual assault occurs", she said.

Cosby must undergo lifetime counseling and report quarterly to authorities.
