BILL COSBY: Sentenced to Prison
Bill Cosby is going to prison.
The disgraced comedian was sentenced today (Tuesday) to three to 10 years behind bars for sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004.
Judge Steven T. O’Neill did not grant bail pending appeal, meaning Cosby will be taken into custody immediately. O’Neill said, "This was a serious crime. Mr. Cosby, this has all circled back to you. The day has come, the time has come... No one is above the law, and no one should be treated differently or disproportionally."
Earlier in the day, O’Neill declared Cosby a “sexually violent predator,” which means the 81-year-old will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
In April, the entertainer was found guilty of drugging and raping Constand. Earlier this year, a first trial ended in a hung jury. (Variety)
