Bill Cosby Gets 3-10 Years in State Prison

Posted September 27, 2018

Corrections Secretary John Wetzel says the prison's long-term goal is to place Cosby in the general population. Despite the hot dog bun incident, representatives say that Cosby was in relatively good spirits for his first night behind bars.

He did not say a word.

Five other accusers took the stand at the trial as part of an effort by prosecutors to portray him as a predator. Neither were his children.

As for Constand, she reportedly smiled while walking out of the courtroom after Cosby's prison sentence was announced, according to Page Six. "The time has come", O'Neill said. "Not saying Mr. Cosby is Jesus, but we know what the country has done to black men for centuries". "The day has come, the time has come ... you took her [Andrea Constand's] attractive healthy young spirit and crushed it".

"I heard the very clear impact on your life", the judge told Constand during sentencing.

Cosby declined an opportunity to address the court prior to his sentencing.

"Using his power and prestige within the community, [Cosby] is able to meet people, befriend them, and it is during that friendship that the sexual assault occurs", she stated, noting that she believes he would likely offend again in the future. While the defence asked their client to remain under house arrest pending an appeal, the judge ordered him to be remanded into custody.

After the sentence, the defense blurted out a request for bail during the appeal process, citing a problem with the audio recording of phone calls recorded by Constand.
