Bill Cosby Gets 3-10 Years in State Prison

A man who once rubbed elbows with some of Hollywood's biggest names only had attorneys and publicists with him in the courtroom.

Five other accusers took the stand at the trial as part of an effort by prosecutors to portray him as a predator. Neither were his children.

Several of Cosby's accusers attended the proceedings this week in a Pennsylvania courthouse but did not testify during the retrial.

"Mr. Cosby knows that God is watching over him. The day has come, the time has come ... you took her [Andrea Constand's] handsome healthy young spirit and crushed it".

During the sentencing hearing, which began on Monday in the US, Judge O'Neill heard from both the defense and the prosecution, as well as testimony and victim impact statements from the women, who have accused Cosby. Constand's attorney put her arm around her shoulder as the judge handed down the sentence.

Cosby declined an opportunity to address the court prior to his sentencing. 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. Camille Cosby alleged that O'Neill was biased because of an old feud he had with the prosecutor who declined to bring charges against Cosby in 2005.

Cosby, who was sentenced Tuesday in Montgomery County Court, was processed in accordance to prison policy and will meet with staff from the medical, psychology and records departments before moving to his single cell, which is located in a unit adjacent to the infirmary. "When (U.S.) Judge (Eduardo) Robreno released the deposition and said that this is perhaps criminal, we're obligated to look at that and we did and we worked through the case and we got to where we are today".

Cosby gave Constand pills to incapacitate her and then sexually assaulted her in 2004. They settled the case in civil court a year later.

Constand's case was the only one that was within the statute of limitations.

Cammarata will ask a judge next month to schedule a trial date and let him take Cosby's deposition.

In 2017, Cosby's first trial ended in a mistrial after a jury from Allegheny County declared itself hopelessly deadlocked. Officials said he drugged and assaulted Constand at his Pennsylvania home.

Reportedly, Cosby's family is intending to appeal his conviction on three counts of aggravated sexual assault.

Bill Cosby's mugshot dated 7:06 p.m. on September 25, 2018.

"He robbed me of my health and vitality, my open nature, and my trust in myself and others", she continued. "He violated Ms. Constand's trust, which, unbeknownst to her, he spent time and energy cultivating with the specific intent of having sexual contact with her". They argued that the development was enough to keep Cosby out on bail while he appeals, but O'Neill refused.
