Cosby Poses For Sad Mugshot After Sentenced To Years In Prison…Publicist Outraged
The fate that many predicted Bill Cosby (81) would receive, has finally come to pass and now the the reality has fully sunken in for the comedy icon – especially after he took his official mugshot.
What The Judge Told Cosby During Sentencing
If you haven’t yet caught the news, Cosby was sentenced to three to 10 years in the pen’ in the case against Andrea Constand, in which he was found guilty on three counts of aggravated indecent assault.
The judge originally postponed the sentencing hearing against his wishes, after conflicting requests were made by the defense and the prosecutors in the case. Apparently, 24 hours later, the Pennsylvania judge determined that Cosby deserved to be behind bars, as the prosecution suggested, and not on house arrest as the defense was gunnin’ for.
During his sentencing announcement, the judge stated, “I’m not permitted to treat him any differently based on who he is or who he was. … As she [Constand] said, ‘Mr. Cosby, you took her beautiful, healthy young spirit and crushed it.'” He then stated to Constand, “I heard the very clear impact on your life.”
Cosby was not only sentenced to three to 10 years in a Pennsylvania state prison, the judge also denied him bail and ordered he be hauled off directly to jail. As Cosby prepared to be taken by the guards, he removed his tie and everything from his pockets, handing it to his team. The guards then led him away in handcuffs and shackles in front of the media circus awaiting him outside of the court room. But there’s more…
Cosby’s Publicist Speaks Out
Following Cosby’s sentencing, Andrew Wyatt- Cosby’s publicist- angrily blasted the judge and all others involved in the sentencing and accusations included within the case of Andrea Constand and Cosby.
Wyatt said this was one of the most “racist and “sexist” trials in U.S. history. He went on to say, “They persecuted Jesus and look what happened. Not saying Mr. Cosby is Jesus, but we know what this country has done to Black men for centuries.”
Prior to now, past jurors from Cosby’s and Constand’s first trial in 2017, spoke out following their hung jury verdict. In a televised interview, they revealed that Constand’s story changed several times and her details didn’t add up with the accusations she’d made against Cosby- that he’d sexually assaulted her during a visit to his home in 2004.
Following Constand’s prior testimony, others within the media and public also became doubtful that a conviction would happen on Cosby’s end, for the same reasons as the jurors stated. However, further details began to emerge about some type of tension and/or bias by the presiding judge in the case and today, Andrew Wyatt clearly feels the same way.
Listen, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, if Cosby is guilty of sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, then he definitely deserves to do his time for his crime – just like any other civilian. On the flip side, if Constand gave some alternative facts about their sexual encounter, that too, should be a crime punishable by law.
Bottom line is, the only people who know where the truth lies, are Constand and Cosby. ILOSM fam’ chop it up with us and let us know your thoughts on this one.
