Bill Cosby Looks Extremely Miserable In New Mugshot

Bill Cosby deemed a sexually violent predator, judge rules

Constand, who once thought of Cosby as her "mentor", was the first woman to publicly accuse the entertainer of sexual assault. The maximum possible sentence was five to 10 years behind bars.

Bill Cosby was marched out of court in shackles on Tuesday after a judge branded him a "predator" and sentenced him to between three and 10 years in prison for sexual assault, capping the downfall of the once-beloved comedian known as "America's Dad". He is serving time at a state prison in Montgomery County after his sentencing there Tuesday.

Bill Cosby's rough day just got even worse. The time has come.

Minutes before a handcuffed Bill Cosby walked out of the courtroom as an 81-year-old convicted sex offender, he removed his dark pinstripe blazer and purple tie, and rolled up the sleeves on his crisp white shirt.

Cosby did not make any statement before sentencing.

Cosby had remained out of prison for the past five months on $1 million bail, and his lawyers said they plan to appeal his convictions.

Cosby is the first powerful man convicted of sex crimes in the #MeToo era.

So far, Constand's case is the only criminal case brought against Cosby, as the statute of limitations has passed on many other alleged incidents. His name will appear on a sex-offender registry sent to neighbours, schools and victims. He said to Cosby, "As she [Constand] said, Mr. Cosby, you took her attractive, healthy young spirit and crushed it".

Cosby's defense team has raised the racial issue before, in 2016, before quickly scrapping it.

Before handing down the prison sentence, Judge O'Neill also made a decision to designate Cosby a "sexually violent predator" under Pennsylvania law.

His lawyers had asked for house arrest, but Judge Steven O'Neill sentenced him to "total confinement", calling him a "sexually violent predator".

Constand said Cosby gave her what she thought were herbal pills to ease stress, then penetrated her with his fingers as she lay immobilized on a couch.

O'Neill said he gave substantial weight to the impact of the sexual assault on victim Andrea Constand, who was seated in the courtroom when the sentence was announced. "So it's taken a long time to get there", Steele said.

Cosby's key witness in the retrial was Marguerite Jackson, a former friend of Constand's who testified that Constand was planning to swindle money from a "high-profile celebrity".

Actor and comedian Bill Cosby arrives at the Montgomery County Courthouse for sentencing in his sexual assault trial in Norristown, Pennsylvania, US, September 25, 2018.

Consequently, Cosby was categorised as a sexually violent predator.

Prosecutors have asked that Cosby, who was found guilty in April, be sentenced to the maximum sentence of between five and 10 years in prison.

"We are the floodgates", said Victoria Valentino, who has accused Cosby of drugging and raping her.

She said she lived alone with her two dogs and had trouble trusting people.

"This was a serious crime", the judge said during sentencing. Cosby didn't testify at either of his two trials.

"Bill Cosby took my attractive, healthy young spirit and crushed it", Constand wrote.
