Bill Cosby wears prison uniform in mugshot as prison sentence begins

The Department of Corrections provided details of Cosby's incarceration Wednesday, one day after the 81-year-old comedian was sentenced to three to 10 years for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his home almost 15 years ago.

Pennsylvania corrections officials say Bill Cosby will serve his sentence at a new state prison in the Philadelphia suburbs. Cosby was up for a maximum of 3 to 10 years and a $25,000 fee.

Judge O'Neill ruled that with Cosby having been convicted of drugging and raping Constand, he will be officially classified as a violent sexual predator.

The sentencing comes after Constand's victim statement was released earlier today, where she wrote that "Bill Cosby took my handsome, healthy young spirit and crushed it". The 81-year-old is legally blind. His legal team has already filled an appeal of the trial. The prison is fairly new and has 3,830 beds.

The decision to put the actor away came after dozens of women accused him of drugging and assaulting them. While Cosby's survivors shared emotional reactions to the sentencing, his spokesperson Andrew Wyatt delivered one of the most absurd and nonsensical statements to the press. Calling the trial the "most racist and sexist trial in the history of the United States", Wyatt went on to characterize the three psychologists who testified as "white women who make money off of accusing black men of being sexual predators".




"For decades, the defendant has been able to hide his true self and hide his crimes using his fame and fortune", said Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele.

"34 months this has gone on", O'Neill said.

Women's advocates hailed Cosby's sentence as a landmark #MeToo moment. Wyatt continued on, comparing Cosby's trial to Brett Kavanaugh's hearings and claiming that there is a "sex war" against these men.

In her testimony, Constand revealed how Cosby gave her pills that left her feeling "frozen" and unable to stop the sexual assault.
