Bill Cosby sentenced to prison for sexual assault
Bill Cosby was sentenced Tuesday to three to 10 years behind bars for drugging and molesting a woman in 2004.
Judge Steven O’Neill dished out his punishment and slammed the shamed actor saying, “It was planned predation — the pills, the planning, the penetration without her consent, your own words in your deposition,” O’Neill said. “You claimed her silence was her consent, that is not the law. Your version of consent was rejected by the jury. That underscores how serious this crime is.”
Cosby, 81, who says he’s legally blind and uses a cane to walk, faced anywhere from zero to 10 years. He was convicted at his retrial in April after jurors in his first trial deadlocked, causing a mistrial.
