Cosby heads to state prison SCI Phoenix to begin serving sentence

The 81-year-old felon was hauled out of the Montgomery County courthouse in handcuffs Tuesday afternoon after a judge handed him a three to 10 year prison stay for drugging and sexually assaulting Temple University's women's basketball administrator Andrea Constand in 2004.

Cosby is now in the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections' Phoenix location, in Collegeville, Pa.

He's allowed phone calls, visits and exercise.

When the prison opened in June, Secretary of Corrections John Wetzel described it as a "21st century institution with advanced security features, environmentally efficient infrastructure and modern work and housing spaces". "The long-term goal is for him to be placed in the general population to receive the programming required during his incarceration". "I do not need any more discussion on that", he responded to a question on whether he'd say something.

Bill Cosby is behind bars, but that doesn't mean his sexual assault case is over. 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.

Recently, Cosby's team - namely his wife, Camille - has been lashing out at O'Neill and accusing prosecutors of using illegal evidence.

Although unlikely, due to Cosby's age and legal blindness, he could take one of the vocational classes offered by the prison, ranging from barbering school and custodial maintenance to carpentry and restaurant professions.

Pakistan Rangers also extended help in efforts to locate the soldier's body", said the FO statement issued on Friday night. The government also directly targeted Imran on Friday following the murders of three Kashmiri policemen.

The biggest difference from the first trial - which ended in a mistrial - was O'Neill's decision to let jurors hear from five other women who say Cosby had also drugged and violated them.

Following the sentencing hearing, Constand's complete victim impact statement was made public, and in it she recounted the crime she was victim to.

The judge ultimately sentenced Cosby to three to 10 years in prison and ruled that he is a 'sexually violent predator, ' meaning that he must undergo lifetime counseling and report quarterly to authorities. "If that's what they've got, it's beyond a Hail Mary".

He received an inmate number upon entering prison: NN7687.

On Wednesday, she was lauded for her inspiring "courage and strength" by prosecutor Kristen Feden.

"No one is above the law".

Cosby, once known as "America's Dad" for his role as the beloved patriarch of the Huxtable family on the 1980s television comedy "The Cosby Show", has been accused by more than 50 women of sexual abuse dating back decades.
