Bill Cosby has been sentenced to prison for sexual assault. The #MeToo movement will finally get a little piece of justice as the American comedy icon is set to serve three to ten years in a state prison.
81-year-old Bill Cosby was sentenced by a judge at the Montgomery Correctional Facility in Eagleville, Pennsylvania (USA) for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004. Cosby has also been categorized as a sexually violent predator. Thus, he must undergo counselling for life and be listed on the sex offender registry
He was also fined $25,000 plus the costs of prosecution.
Bill Cosby reportedly declined to make a statement when offered the opportunity. However his publicist is doing all the talking. In a statement via CNN, Andrew Wyatt (Cosby’s publicist) said:
“I believe and think it is important to point out that this has been the most racist and sexist trial in the history of the United States,”
He also claimed that some of those who testified against Cosby were “white women who make money off of accusing black men of being sexual predators.”
Wyatt further revealed that Cosby “knows that these are lies. They persecuted Jesus and look what happened. Not saying Mr. Cosby’s Jesus, but we know what this country has done to black men for centuries.”
