Cosby, once revered as "America's Dad" for playing wise, caring Dr. Cliff Huxtable on "The Cosby Show", is now known as Inmate No. NN7687.

He will be held in a single cell next to the infirmary.

Tuesday, a judge sentenced Cosby to at least three years in prison for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand.

"He refused to let key witnesses in the trial come forward and testify on Mr. Cosby's behalf", says Andrew Wyatt, his publicist.

At a press conference Tuesday, Montgomery County DA Kevin Steele said Cosby could likely expect a bill from the Sheriff's Office as well.

"The problem is the nature of the crime", added Simpson, who spent nine years behind bars for kidnapping and armed robbery.


The feminist took to Instagram to post a note about Cosby being sentenced to prison for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his Philadelphia home in 2004.

This isn't a simple Black and White issue, despite obvious racial disparities in the legal system and the existence of "affluenza".

Following yesterday's sentencing, Cosby's lawyers announced their intention to appeal, likening his case to the persecution of Jesus.

"They took my cane, tie and shoelaces because they think I will harm myself", Cosby allegedly said. "Finally, Bill Cosby has been unmasked and we have seen the real man as he is headed off to prison".

During the sentencing hearing, which began on Monday in the US, Judge O'Neill heard from both the defense and the prosecution, as well as testimony and victim impact statements from the women, who have accused Cosby.

Meanwhile, reaction to Cosby's incarceration to roll in.


The court released Constand's full victim statement on Tuesday, in which she wrote that Cosby "took my attractive, healthy young spirit and crushed it".

When asked about her opinion on the subject by Pride Source, Griffin said, "I'm gonna go with probably guilty because he's probably guilty".

Cosby is also defending defamation lawsuits filed by at least 10 accusers in MA and California, which were mostly put on hold during the criminal case but should now pick up.

There are about a dozen inmates with visual impairments in Pennsylvania, said Department of Corrections spokeswoman Susan McNaughton, and some of them have inmate guides to help lead them around.

In addition, Cosby was fined $25,000 and denied bail while appealing the sexual assault conviction.
