Bill Cosby's First Prison Meal Revealed

Constand has said she regarded the relationship as "a honest friendship" that included dinners out, gifts and visits to Cosby's houses in Philadelphia and NY.

Corrections Secretary John Wetzel said the prison's long-term goal is to place Cosby in the general population. They're also fighting civil lawsuits filed by some accusers that threaten to drain his vast fortune.

After the sentencing, the judge took a break to consider the defense attorney's request to free Cosby on bail during the appeal.

The disgraced comedian's first trial hinged largely on the credibility of a single woman, his one-time friend Andrea Constand, who said he drugged and sexually assaulted her in 2004, and ended in a hung jury.

Earlier on Tuesday, the judge designated Cosby a "sexually violent predator", which will force him to register with police for the rest of his life and to submit to mandatory counselling.

"No one is above the law". - Cindra Ladd, a model-turned-Hollywood executive who says Cosby gave her a pill that incapacitated her and then raped her in 1969.

Constand, a former employee with Temple University women's basketball testified at the sentencing hearing for two minutes, but submitted a lengthy victim-impact statement that wasn't read in court.

As part of the sentence, the judge also ordered him to pay a fine of $25,000 plus the costs of prosecution.

Amber Rose spoke out on Instagram in light of Bill Cosby being sentenced to 3-10 years in a state prison, which she believes is justice served.




Cosby is vowing to appeal his conviction as the first celebrity trial of the #MeToo era.

However, she had one of his attorneys read a lengthy statement outside court following the sentencing, claiming prosecutors used "falsified evidence", citing what she described as a doctored recorded phone call between Cosby and Constand's mother.

Later, Cosby's publicist, Andrew Wyatt, criticized his client's prison sentence by using an interesting comparison.

Prison isn't a great time for anybody, but Bill Cosby is really struggling and reportedly pleaded with Camille to, "Grab the checkbook and hire anyone and everyone", in an effort to get him out.

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

The AP does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they come forward publicly, which Constand and other accusers have done.

The judge said he recognized the defendant's age and blindness, but said they could not be the determining factors.

Cosby's lawyers blasted the women's testimony as excessive and prejudicial, and twice demanded a mistrial over their charged rhetoric.
