Bill Cosby Sentenced to 3 to 10 Years in State Prison

Tuesday, September 25 will always be the day that Bill Cosby sees as the beginning of the end of his freedom.  The man once known as America’s Dad was sentenced to 3 to 10 years in  state prison.  The fame that paved the way to a multi-million dollar TV and movie career also paved the way to women who claim he used the power of fame to victimize them.  That fame may have worked in his favor, along with his age and failing towards a more lenient sentence.

Cosby initially faced up to ten years each on three counts of sexual assault after he was convicted in April of this year of drugging and assaulting Andrea Constand 14 years ago. The sentencing parameters were reduced  at the request of the prosecution. Under the new guidelines, Cosby will serve at least 3 to 5 years and will be up for parole after the first 3 years of his sentence.

Cosby was immediately taken into custody to begin serving his time. He looked almost in shock as he was led from the courtroom in handcuffs.  It was the exact opposite of the way he entered the Norristown PA court a day earlier.  On the first day of the hearing, the 81-year-old comedian walked into the  sentence hearing looking optimistic and waving to the crowd.  But it was his accuser Andrea Constand who was smiling once the sentencing was handed down.

The writing for the sentence was on the wall perhaps when the judge ruled that Cosby would be labeled “a sexually violent predator” for the rest of his life.  Some might argue that Cosby was his own worst enemy right up to the end by declining to take the stand on his own behalf on the second day of his two day sentencing.  Some legal analysts say a show of remorse, a plea for leniency based on the positive contributions he’s made to communities and colleges and his civil rights work may have helped present him in a different light during the proceeding.

While the sentence was lenient compared to the 30 years Cosby could have received, others may argue what’s the point of putting an 81-year-old year man who is legally blind and needs help to get around in state prison.  In his prime, Cosby was accused of being a sexual predator, but his defense argued that today, the person the frail, aged and ill man endangers is himself.

Andrew Wyatt Cosby’s publicist who could be seen escorting his client to and from the courtroom says Cosby was the victim of a racist system in which White high-powered female lawyers target Black rich men like Cosby. Another spokesperson made claims of falsified audio tapes used to convict Cosby.

What do you think…was the Cosby case handled fairly? Did justice prevail?

    Quote from Dr. Boyce Watkins: “Becky’s words can get you killed even without evidence.”

    Second quote from Dr. Boyce Watkins, “They’re believing everything that comes out of a white women’s mouth, even if it’s a horrible lie.”

    One hundred percent facts from Dr. Boyce Watkins. OJ, Tiger Woods and boule Bill have had their lives destroyed because of white women. Brothers, WE MUST LEAVE WHITE CHICKS ALONE! Our health, freedom and our lives depend on it.

    As a black man, I am scared. Boule Bill has been sent to prison based on white women’s accusations and hearsay. This means the justice system can send a black man to prison with no evidence; just the words of a white woman. We all know that white women are capable of lying. Remember Carolyn Bryant lied about Emmitt Till.

    Because Cosby is old, he should be on house arrest; he probably can’t last 30 years behind bars, that’s what I think

    The same feminazis that are cheering for boule Bill’s prison sentence are staying silent in regards to the sexual assault accusations against Brett Kavanaugh, Les Moonves and Donald Trump. This is proof that ugly old feminazis like Gloria Allred, Greta Van Susteren and Nancy Grace are the female version of the Ku Klux Klan, minus the white bed sheets. Their mission is to destroy us, specifically black men.
