Bill Cosby spokesman compares the 'sexually violent predator' to JESUS

A judge declared actor and comedian Bill Cosby a "sexually violent predator" on Tuesday as a first step toward sentencing the 81-year-old comedian for drugging and sexually assaulting a woman over a decade ago.

Found guilty on April 26 of drugging and molesting Andrea Constand, a former university basketball administrator, Cosby was impassive when Judge Steven O'Neill handed down the sentence on Tuesday in Norristown, Pennsylvania.

Tuesday's classification means he will need to register with state police and notify any community he lives in of his sex offender status, as well as undergo mandatory counselling for life.

Bill Cosby, the comic once regarded as "America's dad" before allegations of sexual assault derailed his once legendary career, has been sentenced to three to 10 years in prison.

The judge announced the plan after ruling that Cosby should be designated as a "sexually violent predator" under state law.

Cosby was convicted for violating Andrea Constand at his estate in 2004.

Once a groundbreaking actor, Cosby was accused by dozens of women of drugging and sexually assaulting them over his decades as a powerful media figure.

A judge has ruled that Bill Cosby is a "sexually violent predator".

The former Temple basketball player testified that she was helpless to stop Cosby's sexual advances after the comedian gave her some wine and three blue pills "to take the edge off".

Rojo did play for the U23's last week but is still not ready for first team action just yet. He's not going to stop me, he lets you play, and that's one of the criticisms.

The former comedian, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by more than 60 women, was denied bail. He is the first celebrity to be convicted since the emergence past year of the #MeToo movement, the national reckoning with sexual misconduct that has ended the careers of powerful men in entertainment, politics and other fields.

Constand later led a class action lawsuit of 13 women who claimed they had been abused by Cosby, which was settled out of court in 2006. The DA still pushed for a 5-10 year sentence, while the defense requested house arrest, and the sentence appears to have landed solidly in middle ground.

It makes him one of the famous Americans ever ordered to serve a prison sentence, in a country where fame and unlimited wealth spent on brilliant lawyers have tended to help celebrities avoid jail in the past. Asked if he wanted to address the court with a statement before sentencing, Cosby declined through his lawyers.

Montgomery Count District Attorney Kevin Steele reportedly dismissed this argument out of hand on Monday.

On Monday, Green urged Judge Steven O'Neill to ignore the protests and activism surrounding the case and send Cosby home.

Cosby's wife, Camille, has not been present at the sentencing.

Steele said, "He was good at hiding this for a long time - good at suppressing this for a long time.So it's taken a long time to get there".

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. He told Constand, "I heard the very clear impact on your life." . She was one of five "prior bad acts" witnesses who testified at the criminal trial that Cosby had incapacitated and then assaulted them without their consent. He went on to become hugely famous as the wise and understanding Dr. Cliff Huxtable on "The Cosby Show".
