Time’s Up Applauds Bill Cosby’s Prison Sentence

Bill Cosby deemed a sexually violent predator, judge rules

The sentence ensures that Cosby will spend no less than three years behind bars before he becomes eligible for supervised release, though he could end up staying in prison for as much as a decade. "The day has come, the time has come".

Judge Andrew Napolitano said that disgraced comedian Bill Cosby's state prison sentence handed down on Tuesday was "rather lenient".

On Tuesday afternoon, he was led out of court in handcuffs, stripped of his suit jacket and tie, driven to a county correctional facility, before being processed by the Pennsylvania state prison system.

In Camille Cosby's statement on Tuesday, she accused Kevin Steele, the Montgomery County district attorney, of using the "inauthentic" recording in both trials to convince the jury of Bill Cosby's guilt. The Constand case was the only allegation that led to criminal charges.

In a victim impact statement read in court, Constand described the harrowing toll that Cosby's assault took, essentially ruining her chances of ever having a normal life.

That has since been eclipsed by his conviction for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, a former administrator at his alma mater Temple University, in his Philadelphia-area home in 2004. He denied the defense's request for a limited sentence fo house arrest or probation.

"But I'm very happy to know that Mr. Cosby will do time in prison - that he's touchable like he touched us", Lasha said.

Sonia Ossorio, president of the National Organization for Women of NY, praised Constand and each of the more than 60 women who have come forward to tell their stories about Cosby.

Constand stood at Steele's side but shook her head to say she had no comment. A judge must decide whether to classify Cosby as a "sexually violent predator", which would make him subject to mandatory lifetime counseling and community notification.

O'Neill also fined Cosby $25,000 and ordered him to pay the costs of the prosecution.

Dr. Kristen Dudley, a clinical psychologist and one of the authors of a report on Cosby by the Pennsylvania Sexual Offenders Assessment Board, pushed for the comic to be labeled a sexually violent predator during the hearing. He will be classified as a "sexually violent predator" for the remainder of his life. "He robbed me of my health and vitality, my open nature, and my trust in myself and others".

Constand said she now lives alone with her two dogs and has trouble trusting people. His defense requested that he be able to serve his term on house arrest instead of prison, considering he's old and blind and a celebrity, but the judge said, in so many words: Hell no. Prison for you.

While Cosby did not cooperate with the Assessment Board's review, it drew on investigation documents, trial transcripts, and law enforcement interviews with Cosby and other witnesses in the case.

Cosby, whose estimated fortune once topped $400 million, broke barriers in the 1960s as the first black actor to star in a network show, "I Spy".
