Bill Cosby sentenced to 3-10 year for sexual assault

Bill Cosby in court for sexual assault sentencing, capping downfall

After his sentence was handed to him, Bill was quickly escorted out of the courtroom with handcuffs around his wrists.

Exactly how much jail time Cosby will serve is still to be decided but he faces a maximum term of 10 years. But then, she testified, she soon became incapacitated and felt his fingers inside of her, but "couldn't fight him off".

Hughley retweeted several tweets saying that Cosby got a harsh sentence because he is black. "The jury heard those words".

With his sentence, Judge Steven O'Neill sided with prosecutors, who were seeking a five-to-10-year prison sentence. The defense wanted Cosby sent home on house arrest. O'Neill says Cosby had no right to it. "No one should be treated differently".

"The suggestion that Mr. Cosby is risky is not supported by anything other than the frenzy", defense lawyer Joseph Green Jr. said, urging the judge to disregard the media attention and demonstrators gathering outside the Pennsylvania courthouse. Bill Cosby has been charged as "sexually violent predator" for molesting a woman nearly 14 years ago at his Philadelphia mansion.

"Equal justice under the law does not allow different treatment because of who he is or who he was", O'Neill said. The comedian was also deemed a "sexually violent predator," meaning he will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

On Monday, a prosecution expert said Cosby should be labeled a "sexually violent predator" because he has a mental disorder that involves urges toward nonconsenting women.


"Yes", replied Cosby, once adored by millions for his defining role on "The Cosby Show", dressed in a navy pin-striped suit, white shirt and red tie.

A defense psychologist says the chances that Bill Cosby will commit another sex offense are "extraordinarily low" because he's old, legally blind and needs help getting around.

But a member of the state board recommending the designation, said that it was "possible" he had already met "a future victim". But in April, when prosecutors claimed he had a private plane and asked the judge to revoke his bail, Cosby stood up in court and yelled, "He doesn't have a plane, you a**hole", referring to himself in the third person.

"It is who he is behind the mask", Steele said, his voice quivering and his eyes filling with tears. His wife of 54 years, Camille, was not in court.

It was the first sentencing of a celebrity in the passionate atmosphere of the #MeToo movement, and the case provided a backdrop not just for Constand's allegation, but for some of the dozens of other women who accused Cosby of assaulting them and faithfully attended the court proceedings. The felony counts were connected to a 2004 incident between Cosby and former Temple University employee Andrea Constand.

After inviting her to his mansion in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, Constand said that Cosby drugged and raped her.
