Inside the prison where Bill Cosby will serve his sentence

Inside the prison where Bill Cosby will serve his sentence

According to the Department of Corrections website prisoners are offered treatment, educational, vocational and recreational programs. Cosby's sentencing closes the chapter on one of Hollywood's most prolific and horrifying serial sex offenders.

Judge O'Neill also fined Cosby US$25,000 (S$34,000) and ordered him to pay the costs of the prosecution.

"No one is above the law".

Their famous client behind bars, Bill Cosby's legal team is readying a long-shot bid to get his sexual assault conviction overturned. Wyatt has vowed that this situation is far from over and is trying to provide evidence that Cosby was illegally recorded and that said tape had been tampered with.

He is the first celebrity to be convicted of sexual abuse since the start of the #MeToo movement, the national reckoning with misconduct that has brought down dozens of powerful men in entertainment, politics and other fields. The judge says Cosby could still drug people to override their lack of consent to sexual activity.

"It is time for justice". "Not saying Mr. Cosby is Jesus, but we know what this country has done to black men for centuries". Cosby would stand a better chance, experts say, if he could show that O'Neill made serious errors that violated his constitutional rights.




As for Constand, she reportedly smiled while walking out of the courtroom after Cosby's prison sentence was announced, according to Page Six. "The one thing about me is that I'll never know because I'm not going to prison so I wouldn't see or know", Kevin added.

On the trial: "The most racist and sexist trial in the history of the United States".

They argued that the development was enough to keep Cosby out on bail while he appeals, but O'Neill refused. After the hearing, he was also photographed, wearing a white shirt and suspenders, and he was looking down. He appeared downcast, his eyes failing to meet the camera, in a mug shot released by authorities.

"For decades, the defendant has been able to hide his true self and hide his crimes using his fame and fortune".

Cosby's lawyers are also likely to renew their argument that former Montgomery County District Attorney Bruce Castor promised Cosby in 2005 he would not be prosecuted if he agreed to sit for a deposition in Constand's civil case against him. Dessert will include a half-cup of gelatin, but it's unclear whether the prison serves the Jell-O brand of dessert that Cosby advertised for decades in TV commercials.
