Bill Cosby GUILTY! Sentenced 3 to 10 Years in Prison

Bill Cosby has been sentenced to 3 to 10 years in state prison for the sexual assault of Andrea Constand as well as deemed a ‘sexually violent predator’

Judge Steven T. O’Neill made the decision Tuesday, the second day of the sentencing hearing in Norristown, Pa., court — saying, “I’m not permitted to treat him any differently based on who he is or who he was.” He also ruled that Cosby is a “sexually violent predator” and fined him $25,000. Many of Bill Cosby’s 60 accusers were in the courtroom along with Constand during sentencing.

Bill Cosby, 81, is expected to serve at least three years in prison and then will become eligible for supervised release. State guidelines recommend between one and four years for 1 count. Bill Cosby was facing a 30-year sentence however the district attorney and defense attorney agreed all counts be merged into one. The D.A. requested the maximum sentence while Cosby’s legal team argued for leniency, given his age and frailty, including his blindness.

Bill Cosby must undergo counseling for the rest of his life and report quarterly to authorities. His name will appear on a sex-offender registry sent to neighbors, schools, and victims, according to the AP.

The judge will not grant bail and Bill Cosby is expected to be taken away to a cell shortly. He chose not to make a statement when the judge asked if he had anything to say.

Bill Cosby was convicted in April on three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault.

Constand’s victim impact letter was shared with the court. She talked about the “psychological, emotional, and financial bullying included a slander campaign in the media that left my entire family reeling in shock and disbelief.”

Many are now questioning, if Bill Cosby can be held responsible for sexual crimes stemming years ago, shouldn’t Brett Kavanaugh also be held liable?
