Bill Cosby Looks Extremely Miserable In New Mugshot

Cosby was escorted out of the courtroom in handcuffs as he held onto his walking cane following the sentencing.

The former television superstar, who traded on a squeaky clean, fatherly image, was sentenced after being found guilty of three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault in April in one of the most widely publicized trials in modern history.

Green rejected the prosecution's contention that Cosby should be considered risky, saying he couldn't recall any instance in which an 81-year-old, blind defendant had been sent to state prison.

Constand, the victim in the case, spoke briefly on the first day of the hearing on Monday.

Cosby was convicted of drugging and raping Constand in April, after his legal team's defense that Constand was fabricating her allegations failed to win over his jury.

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

Constand, 45, said her training as a professional basketball player had led her to think she could handle anything, but "life as I knew it" ended on the night she said Cosby knocked her out with pills and penetrated her with his fingers as she lay almost paralyzed on a couch.

Cosby was also ordered to pay a $25,000 fine and prosecution costs.

"The behaviors are beyond their controls, so they are urged to act on it". Kristen Dudley, a member of the Pennsylvania Sex Offender Assessment Board, told the court Monday that she deemed his behavior as predatory.

Earlier in the day, O'Neill declared the former TV star a "sexually violent predator".

Prosecutors released Constand's five-page letter to the judge in which she described the impact of Cosby's assault. A defense witness is expected to testify on Tuesday prior to the judge's ruling on the issue. The judge said that Cosby "could quite possibly be a danger to the community".

Cosby, 81, has also been categorised as a sexually violent predator, meaning he must undergo counselling for life and be listed on the sex offender registry.

When the judge questioned the usually chatty comedian about whether he understood his decision not to address the court, he audibly answered, "Yes".

In the years since Ms Constand first went to authorities in 2005, more than 60 women have accused Cosby of sexual misconduct, though none of those claims have led to criminal charges.

Bill Cosby's spokesman Andrew Wyatt said outside a Pennsylvania courtroom Tuesday: "Mr Cosby knows that God is watching over him. he knows that these are lies".

Constand, 45, offered a much different account during emotional and often excruciating testimony at Cosby's first trial in June 2017, which ended with a deadlocked jury, and again at his retrial five months ago. And another woman, 53-year-year Deborah Ramirez, is alleging that Kavanaugh exposed himself to her at a dorm party when they were students at Yale University.

Cosby's defence is pushing instead for house arrest. He says the comedian's lawyers wouldn't let him discuss certain matters, including the sexual assault that led to his conviction or his admission that he gave quaaludes to women before sex.
