Bill Cosby sentenced to 3 to 10 years in state prison
#1
Well, knock me over with a feather!  I thought these Hollywood so called 'elites' were above the law?  At least, they thought they were.

Happy to see some real justice being administered to the higher-ups.  
I bet this has the rest of the perverts shaking in their boots.   tinysure

Quote:Bill Cosby was sentenced on Tuesday to three to 10 years in state prison for the sexual assault of Andrea Constand.

Judge Steven T. O’Neill rendered the decision Tuesday, the second day of the sentencing hearing at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pa., saying, “I’m not permitted to treat him any differently based on who he is or who he was.” O’Neill also ruled that Cosby is a “sexually violent predator” and fined him $25,000.

The sentence means that Cosby, once known as “America’s Dad,” will spend at least three years behind bars and then will become eligible for supervised release, although that’s not guaranteed. According to journalist Bobby Allyn, who was in the courtroom, the judge will not grant bail, and the comedian is expected to be taken away to a cell shortly.

Cosby, 81, was convicted in April on three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault. While they had the potential to carry a 30-year sentence — 10 years per count — O’Neill said Monday, and the district attorney and defense attorney agreed, that the counts would be merged into just one. State guidelines recommend between one and four years for a single count. (The D.A. requested the maximum sentence while Cosby’s legal team argued for leniency, given his age and frailty, including his blindness.)
The disgraced Cosby Show star arrived at court on Tuesday morning with a smile on his face as he walked in alongside his legal team and handlers. His wife since 1964, Camille Cosby, opted not to attend again. He chose not to make a statement when the judge asked if he had anything to say.

According to Philadelphia Inquirer reporter Laura McCrystal, more than a half dozen Cosby accusers — of which there are approximately 60 — were in the courtroom along with Constand, a former Temple University employee, for the sentencing.
Day two also saw a psychologist, who was an expert witness for the defense, testify as to whether Cosby should be labeled a “sexually violent predator.” (Prosecutors had called their witness on Monday.) Timothy Foley told the court that the risk of sex offenders reoffending after age 70 is “virtually negligible.” Cosby’s lawyer suggested that he hasn’t “acted out” in more than five years. Judge O’Neill’s ruling of the classification means that Cosby must undergo counseling for the rest of his life and report quarterly to authorities. His name will appear on a sex-offender registry sent to neighbors, schools, and victims, according to the AP.

Constand’s victim impact letter was shared with the court. She said that the “psychological, emotional, and financial bullying included a slander campaign in the media that left my entire family reeling in shock and disbelief.”

Yeah, I would've thought a Liberal Judge would explained to the public that considering
Cosby's work being is seen as a a motivational and aspiring act, he'd get a slap on the
wrist!

Maybe things are changing.

You have to remember, Cosby is and always has been a Republican, Big supporter of Reagan.

He hated Blacks that played the System and Refused to get an Education.

What he did, was wrong, that is true, but how many of those women were actually telling the truth?

I understand, but like any person finding themselves in a position of power (and Hollywood has plenty
of it!)... he took the moral-decision to do what he did and has been held accountable for it.

At least some of his earlier work may have had a positive effect on those growing up in those years.

From what I've seen on social media, people are identifying him as being the character he played on t.v.  They see him as America's Dad. It's hard for them to accept that he might not be that person in REAL life.  

I think he's guilty. If he was innocent he could have won his case, especially with all that money.  I'm happy to see sexual predators get what they deserve, no matter who they are.

BUMP, BUMP..
After about three years they finally figured out the Judge and Prosecutor were Corrupt!  tinysure

Was Cosby guilty?
But because of a Hung Jury the Judge allowed the Prosecutor to bring in 5 more women he had waiting.

Quote:The trial judge had allowed just one other accuser to testify at Cosby's first trial when the jury deadlocked.

However, he then allowed five other accusers to testify at the retrial about their experiences with Cosby in the 1980s.
From the 1980's,,,,,,,,,,, Please that was 20 years ago as the trial started, Damn good memories.
Quote:BILL Cosby is set to be released from prison after his sexual assault conviction was overturned on Wednesday due to an "unfair trial," and despite the comedian still being considered a "risk."
Still a Risk,,,,, to whom, he is in his 80's now.
Quote:Bill Cosby to be released from prison after Pa. Supreme Court overturns sexual assault conviction

He was denied Parole because he Refused to Admit his Guilt.
What if he wasn't Guilty, had nothing to admit too.
More than likely his defense team told him Never to Admit to anything.

I think this news article will upset a lot of us.

Quote:Bill Cosby Reportedly Wants To Be Compensated For His Time Behind Bars
tinysurprised What did the women get, yes the women he did actually sexually assault.

Quote:Cosby’s representative, Andrew Wyatt, told NewsNation Now, ““Mr. Cosby was given an unwanted two-year and ten-month vacation that he never ask for. His constitutional rights were abolished, his due process was stripped away from him.”

Wyatt continued, “He’s due millions and millions of dollars. As Mr. Cosby said to me today, ‘I feel that this district attorney and Judge Steven O’Neill and Kevin Steele [Montgomery County district attorney] should resign effective immediately.”

What? He didn't put some of his millions away in a safe place, so now he wants to dip his hands into the tax payer's pockets?  
This should piss a lot of people off, especially those women he assaulted.
