|Sexual Assault: Bill Cosby Sentenced To 3 To 10 Years In Prison by stainlessmedia(m): 10:21am On Sep 26, 2018|
Bill Cosby was sentenced Tuesday to three to ten years in state prison by a Pennsylvania judge, who had designated the comedian a “sexually violent predator.”
ABC News reports that the two-day hearing was attended by about a dozen women who accused Cosby of sexual assault, including Andrea Constand, whom he was convicted of assaulting in his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004.
“It’s been a long journey to get here and today justice was served.
“It has been a long time coming, but it arrived when a convicted felon named William H. Cosby Jr. left the courtroom in handcuffs headed off to state prison for his crimes,” Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele said after the sentencing.
Judge Steven O’Neill sentenced Cosby in a Norristown, Pennsylvania, courtroom and rejected a request from defense attorneys to allow Cosby to be released on bail pending appeals.
O’Neill ordered Cosby to serve the sentence in “total confinement” for “no less than 3 years and no more than 10 years.”
