At 81, Bill Cosby joins the growing ranks of older prisoners

Cosby said that they had taken his cane, tie, and shoelaces because "they think I will harm myself".

In the future, balancing the rights of the victim with the rights of the accused will be a challenge, considering the difficulty of gathering evidence from decades-old crimes.

"More than 60 other women have self-identified as sexual-assault victims of Bill Cosby", she had said in a statement given to Judge O'Neill.

"This has been the most racist and sexist trial in the history of the United States".

Cosby's lawyers are also likely to renew their argument that former Montgomery County District Attorney Bruce Castor promised Cosby in 2005 he would not be prosecuted if he agreed to sit for a deposition in Constand's civil case against him.

"Bill Cosby took my lovely, healthy young spirit and crushed it", Constand wrote in the impact statement.

"No one is above the law".

"I always look for my strength in the victims, and Andrea Constand was fantastic", Feden said on NBC's "Today" show Wednesday.

Andrea Constand has remained intensely private throughout a high-profile trial that culminated this week with "America's Dad" being imprisoned for drugging and violating her in 2004.

Judge O'Neill, who Wyatt tried to drag through the mud, also had made strong statements about Cosby.

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.

Cosby will occupy one of the facility's 3,830 beds.

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.

At 81, Bill Cosby is 42 years older than the average Pennsylvania prison inmate and is part of a growing population of inmates over 55. More than two dozen inmates told The Inquirer and Daily News some of their personal effects were vandalized and ruined when they were transferred over to the $400 million facility.

Cosby is also defending defamation lawsuits filed by at least 10 accusers in MA and California, which were mostly put on hold during the criminal case but should now pick up.

"People are really nice there and treating him well", Wyatt said. Is Cosby going to rise in three days and walk out of a cave?

"When the sexual assault happened, I was a young woman brimming with confidence and looking forward to a future bright with possibilities".

In 2017, Cosby's first trial ended in a mistrial after a jury from Allegheny County declared itself hopelessly deadlocked.
