Bill Cosby’s Mugshot Released After Being Sentenced to 3-10 Years

Bill Cosby was led in handcuffs after a judge sentenced him to 3-10 years in state prison for sexual assault. Cosby looks downcast in his mugshot.

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

The judge also called the 81-year-old a “sexually violent predator,” and it was determined that his name will be on a sex-offender registry sent to neighbors, schools, and victims.

Bill Cosby arrived at the courthouse in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania for his sentencing hearing for drugging and sexually assaulting former Temple University employee Andrea Constand.

Cosby was convicted on three aggravated indecent sexual assault charges in April, with each charge carrying a sentence of up to 10 years. Cosby has said he vows to appeal.

Bill Cosby Found Guilty of Sexual Assault After Years of Accusations

Cosby’s main accuser, Andrea Constand, and two other women who testified that Cosby also drugged and sexually assaulted them were in the courtroom and burst into tears as the verdict was announced.
“I feel like my faith in humanity has been restored,” one of the women, Lili Bernard, said after hearing the verdict.

The conviction came about 11 months after a mistrial was declared in Cosby’s first trial when a jury failed to reach a verdict.

The jury of seven men and five women began deliberating Wednesday and spent a little over 12 hours going over evidence presented to them over two weeks before rendering their unanimous decision.

After the verdict was announced, Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele asked Judge Steven O’Neill to revoke Coby’s bail and send him to jail right away.

“I understand this is very serious … however to ask to revoke the bail of individual … is your concern?” O’Neill asked Steele.

“Flight,” Steele said. “To any place. He has a plane.”

At that point, Cosby screamed out in a booming voice: “He doesn’t have a plane you a——!”

Cosby was convicted charges connected to the assault on Andrea Constand, a former director of operations for the women’s basketball team at Temple University, where Cosby was a trustee and major financial donor. Constand testified that Cosby knocked her out with a powerful drug and sexually assaulted her in 2004 at his home.

The prosecution was also allowed to call five other women to testify that Cosby assaulted them in the same manner.

R Kelly Hires Bill Cosby’s Lawyer

R Kelly has reportedly hired Bill Cosby’s lawyer to help him wade through the latest round of sexual assault allegations leveled against him.

Monique Pressley specializes in in civil litigation, crisis management and communications. According to The Daily Mail, she joined Kelly’s legal team following last week’s explosive Buzzfeed report alleging Kelly of holding several women in a sex cult.

Pressley previously represented Cosby in his own sexual assault case before stepping down last August.

It’s unclear whether Kelly is currently under investigation. Consequence of Sound has reached out to various law enforcement officials; the Johns Creek Police Department confirmed a welfare check back in December 2016, but Kelly’s residence was vacant when officers arrived. Other law enforcement officials declined comment.

Written by veteran Chicago journalist Jim DeRogatis, the Buzzfeed article alleges Kelly of brainwashing, grooming, and imprisoning six different women at his homes in both Chicago and Georgia. The story came to light after the family of one woman, 19-year-old Jocelyn Savage, reached out to DeRogatis. Three members of Kelly’s inner circle subsequently corroborated the parents’ allegations. Savage’s parents say their daughter has completely cut off communication with them and they fear she is suffering from Stockholm Syndrome.

In a subsequent interview with TMZ, Savage disputed her parents’ account, saying, “I am totally fine. I’m happy where I’m at. Everything is okay with me.” She said she hasn’t spoke to her parents in “five or six months” due to “everything they’ve been causing, problems in my life, saying [I’m a] hostage and being held against my will.” However, she became flustered and refused to answer TMZ’s questions regarding her whereabouts and whether or not she’s with other people.

For his part, Kelly released a terse, threatening statement through his other attorney, Linda Mensch. “Mr. Robert Kelly is both alarmed and disturbed at the recent revelations attributed to him,” the statement reads. “Mr. Kelly unequivocally denies such allegations and will work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name.”

Unclear how or why Trey fell short … we’ve got a call into his rep, but no word back yet.

The Associated Press went to court to compel the release of the documents, and they were made public Monday. Cosby’s lawyers had objected on the grounds that it would embarrass their client.


The 77-year-old comedian was testifying under oath in a lawsuit filed by a former Temple University employee. He testified he gave her three half-pills of Benadryl.


Cosby settled that sexual-abuse lawsuit for undisclosed terms in 2006. More than a dozen women have since accused him of sexually assaulting them. Some believe they were also drugged. Cosby has never been criminally charged, and most of the accusations are barred by statutes of limitations.


Cosby’s lawyers in the Philadelphia case did not immediately return phone calls.
