Bill Cosby jailed for 2004 sexual assault, his publicist Andrew Wyatt says it was a ‘racist and sexist’ trial

A Pennsylvania judge sentenced Bill Cosby to three-to-10 years in state prison for aggravated indecent assault in the only criminal case to emerge from dozens of allegations against the once-beloved comedian in recent years. (WSJ)

Cosby, who shook his head as the judge delivered the sentence, declined to speak during the two-day hearing. He was found guilty in April of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, a former women’s basketball coach at Temple University in Philadelphia, where Cosby was a trustee, major donor and famous alumnus. (HuffPost)

The punishment made him the first celebrity of the #MeToo era to be sent to prison and all but completed the dizzying, late-in-life fall from grace for the comedian, TV star and breaker of racial barriers. (THR / AP)

Ahead of Cosby’s sentencing, the judge ruled him to be a “sexually violent predator,” meaning he must constantly keep authorities aware of his whereabouts, should he ever see life outside of prison. (Mediaite)

Montgomery County Judge Steven T. O’Neill denied Cosby’s request for bail pending his appeal. Cosby’s publicist, Andrew Wyatt, denounced the outcome in a statement outside court. “This has been the most racist and sexist trial in the history of the United States,” he said, laying the blame at the feet of “white women who make money off of accusing black men of being sexual predators.” “They persecuted Jesus and look what happened,” Wyatt added. (Variety)
