Bill Cosby Gets 3-10 Years in State Prison

  • First Person Bill Cosby and the complicated heartbreak of a hero's fall from grace

Despite the hot dog bun incident, representatives say that Cosby was in relatively good spirits for his first night behind bars. Judge Steven O'Neill (who sentenced Cosby) helped to carry the "war" out, Wyatt said. "Police officers, lay people, they're not allowed to tell you their opinion", the judge said. "Not saying Mr. Cosby's Jesus, but we know what this country has done to black men for centuries". A judge sentenced the 81-year-old to three to 10 years in prison Tuesday for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his home almost 15 years ago.

Cosby's lawyers face a hard burden in convincing an appellate court to second-guess O'Neill's decision, experts told Reuters.

An invoice shows air travel, baggage fees, meals, and hotel stays for Andrea Constand, supermodel Janice Dickinson, and the others who took the stand against the famous felon, who was convicted on sex assault charges following an April retrial.

In the meantime, his family and aides are pressing his case in the court of public opinion.

Wyatt, in Norristown, also claimed that the district attorney in Montgomery County outside Philadelphia used "falsified evidence against Dr. Cosby". He spent a few hours in county jail before being shipped off to SCI Phoenix, a modern 3,830-bed facility that opened in June.

"Bill Cosby is out of options", said veteran Pennsylvania prosecutor Jarrett Ferentino, who wasn't involved in the case.

O'Neill denied bail and in addition to years in prison, said Cosby will be classified as a "sexually violent predator", which requires lifetime registration, lifetime mandatory counseling and community notification that a "sexually violent predator" lives in any area he moves to.

"Shit, I would actually be scared to say something because his entire life he has been put in such a positive light", she continued.

Prison isn't a great time for anybody, but Bill Cosby is really struggling and reportedly pleaded with Camille to, "Grab the checkbook and hire anyone and everyone", in an effort to get him out.

The biggest difference from the first trial - which ended in a mistrial - was O'Neill's decision to let jurors hear from five other women who say Cosby had also drugged and violated them. A new team of prosecutors took up the case based on Constand's and Cosby's statements in a civil deposition and arrested him in December 2015.

Cosby's name will appear on a sex-offender registry sent to neighbors, schools and victims.
