  • Checkout Bill Cosby's mugshot after sex assault sentencing lailasnews

Update: The judge in Bill Cosby's sexual assault case has sentenced the famed entertainer to 3-10 years in state prison.

Bill Cosby's mug shot was released on September 25.

Judge O'Neill ruled that with Cosby having been convicted of drugging and raping Constand, he will be officially classified as a violent sexual predator.

Although unlikely, due to Cosby's age and legal blindness, he could take one of the vocational classes offered by the prison, ranging from barbering school and custodial maintenance to carpentry and restaurant professions.

A member of the prosecution team from Cosby's trials says Constand, the comedian's chief accuser, told her she was happy with his sentence.

Cosby spent a few hours at the county jail Tuesday before heading to SCI Phoenix, a 3,830-bed lockup that opened two months ago.

According to Wyatt, the "sexist and racist" mass media did not allow Cosby's record as "one of the greatest civil rights leaders in the United States for over the last 50 years" to be brought up in court. "The time has come". His publicist Andrew Wyatt spoke to Tictoc (via The Washington Post) where he compared the comedian to Jesus and said that race played a role in the conviction.

Cruz and O'Rourke will face off again September 30 in Houston and October 16 in San Antonio. Gun rights were discussed and the mass shooting at Santa Fe High School was brought up.

He was also ordered to pay a $25,000 fine.

In a statement issued after the sentence was handed down, Cosby's wife, Camille, claimed that a phone recording played at trial was doctored.

District Attorney Kevin Steele said the the once beloved comic could end up at SCI Laurel Highlands, a state prison for lower-risk inmates located about 70 miles outside of Pittsburgh.

Women's advocates hailed Cosby's sentence as a landmark #MeToo moment.

Wyatt also accused prosecutors, without evidence, of falsifying evidence.

Cosby must undergo lifetime counseling and report quarterly to authorities.

In his testimony, Cosby described sexual encounters with a string of actresses, models and other young women and talked about obtaining quaaludes to give to those he wanted to sleep with.
