Bill Cosby sentenced to 3 to 10 years in prison

Bill Cosby sentenced to 3 to 10 years in prison”

The actor was found guilty of aggravated indecent assault against Andrea Constand in April, after multiple women testified in the case claiming to have been drugged and sexually assaulted by the actor.

Bill Cosby has been sentenced to three to 10 years in prison for sexually assaulting a Canadian woman in 2004. He went on to superstardom as wise and understanding Dr. Cliff Huxtable on "The Cosby Show", a sitcom that showed America a new kind of black TV family - a warm and loving household led by two professionals, one a lawyer, the other a doctor.

NY magazine contacted 42 colleges that had granted Cosby honorary degrees and found that, as of June, 33 of them, including the college he attended, Temple University, had revoked the honor.

Cosby is the first powerful man convicted of sex crimes in the #MeToo era. However, Cosby's defense attorney, Joseph P. Green, asked for a sentence of house arrest, citing Cosby's advanced age and blindness.

Bill Cosby has been sentenced to up to ten years in prison after a judge ruled that the actor once deemed America's favourite father figure was a sexually violent predator.

However, O'Neill said that Cosby isn't entitled to bail as he appeals the sentence.

Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele rejected the notion that "age, infirmity, should somehow equate to mercy". She said she had been a "young woman brimming with confidence" before Cosby took that from her.

Camille Cosby alleged that a tape-recording Steele played during the trial was doctored, adding that the mother of Andrea Constand, the victim Cosby was convicted of drugging and raping, "surreptitiously and illegally made the recording" in 2005 without his knowledge or consent.

While Gloria Allred, who represented many of Cosby's accusers, addressed those waiting.

The classification means that Cosby must undergo monthly counseling for the rest of his life and report quarterly to authorities. Prosecutors asked for 5 to 10 years behind bars, saying he could still pose a threat to women. After the sentencing Tuesday, Cosby was taken directly to prison.

The proceedings took place as another extraordinary #MeToo drama continued to unfold on Capitol Hill, where Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh faces allegations of sexual misconduct from more than three decades ago.

One user tweeted that Cosby's star could be used as a "potty spot" for dogs, while another said it was "unacceptable" it wouldn't be removed.

More than 50 women have accused Cosby of sexual abuse going back decades, with most complaints too old to prosecute.

In the statement, she described herself before the assault as a young, strong woman looking forward to a future with bright possibilities.

When prosecutors told Cosby in court he would not have to inform Constand of his movements himself but that a proxy would do so, he replied: "Good!"

The decision is ultimately up to O'Neill, who oversaw Cosby's 2018 retrial, as well as his mistrial a year earlier that ended in a hung jury.
