OJ Simpson Says Bill Cosby Will Be a Target in Prison

Checkout Bill Cosby's mugshot after sex assault sentencing lailasnews

According to CNN Judge Steven T. O'Neill sentenced Cosby was convicted in April of "three counts of aggravated indecent assault for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004".

Cosby got one of the 3,830 beds to start serving his three to 10 years for sexual assault. The former comedian, 81, has been accused by dozens of women of drugging and raping them, with allegations of sexual abuse spanning decades. CBS News' Jericka Duncan spoke with one of the prosecutors, Kristen Feden, in an interview you'll see first on "CBS This Morning".

The model was almost booted from Cosby's sentencing for laughing loudly during a break in the proceedings. His wife, Camille Cosby, was not present.

Cosby faced anywhere from probation to 10 years in prison. "He's hidden behind a character he created, Dr. Cliff Huxtable", Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele said at a news conference, referring to Cosby's best-known role.

In addition, Cosby was fined $25,000 and denied bail while appealing the sexual assault conviction.

Cosby will meet with prison medical staff, psychologists and others as the staff assesses his needs.

The punishment came at the end of a two-day hearing at which the judge also declared Cosby a "sexually violent predator".

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

Constand testified that Cosby gave her what she thought were herbal pills to ease stress, then penetrated her with his fingers as she lay immobilized on a couch. And his first night as a no-name inmate, who is only identified by the numbers stenciled on the back of his prison fatigues, reportedly did not go well.

Cosby is also free to bring a personal tablet for music or games but wouldn't have internet access, corrections spokeswoman Amy Worden said.

Montgomery County Assistant District Attorney Kristen Feden said Wednesday on NBC's "Today" that Constand gave her strength as she went through the hard process of prosecuting Cosby.
