Bill Cosby Sentenced to Prison - Judge Declares Him a 'Sexually Violent Predator'

Bill Cosby arrives for his sentencing hearing at the Montgomery County Courthouse Tuesday Sept. 25 2018 in Norristown Pa

The creepy comic's fall from grace has been breathtaking.

"It is time for justice".

"The suggestion that Mr. Cosby is unsafe is not supported by anything other than the frenzy", Green said, as demonstrators gathered outside the courthouse. When the judge said he would have to register a a SVP, he didn't flinch, and continued to look ahead and did not react in any discernible way.

Bill Cosby victim Andrea Constand, who's led the charge against the disgraced comedian, submitted a victim-impact statement at Cosby's sentencing on Monday.

After the sentencing, Andrew Wyatt, Cosby's spokesman, read a statement in which he said the entertainer had been subjected to "the most racist and sexist trial in the history of the United States". Constand smiled upon hearing the punishment and was hugged by others in the courtroom.

A member of the board said Cosby has a mental disorder that involves urges toward nonconsenting women.

He was convicted in April of aggravated sexual assault for drugging and molesting Andrea Constand at his home near Philadelphia. It was the first celebrity trial of the #MeToo era. The defence requested house arrest, saying Cosby is too old and helpless to do time behind bars.

Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele said Cosby would no doubt commit similar crimes if given the chance, warning that the former TV star seemingly gets a sexual thrill out of slipping women drugs and assaulting them.

In a two paragraph statement given to KDKA-TV News, CMU said it has a long and unwavering commitment and it will not tolerate sexual violence of any kind. Good at suppressing this for a long time. She said she had been a "young woman brimming with confidence" before Cosby took that from her.

The sentencing came as another #MeToo drama unfolded on Capitol Hill, Washington, DC, where Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh stands accused of sexual misconduct more than 30 years ago.

"I have often asked myself why the burden of being the sole witness in two criminal trials had to fall to me". "For jurors, I think it's inherently changed the credibility of the accusers".

In the years since, Cosby has been accused of sexual assault by more than 60 women, prompting officials to reopen the case.

Cosby, a felon who is now officially classified as a "sexually violent predator" for life, will require mandatory counseling and community notifications.

When the ruling was announced, a woman was reported to have shot her fist in the air and whispered, "Yes!"

Constand said she now has trouble trusting people.

"Now, nearly 15 years later, I'm a middle-aged woman who's been stuck in a holding pattern for most of her adult life, unable to heal fully or to move forward".

He will also be required to pay a fine and court costs.

Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas Judge Steven O'Neill ordered Cosby, who had been out on bail since his conviction, to be jailed immediately.

The decision is ultimately up to O'Neill, who oversaw Cosby's 2018 retrial, as well as his mistrial a year earlier that ended in a hung jury. Cosby claimed the encounter was consensual, and that he gave her Benadryl, not qualuudes. The defence asked for house arrest.
