Meet the prosecutor who pressed for charges against Bill Cosby before #MeToo

Bill Cosby And Brett Kavanaugh Are Both Victims of 'Sex War,' Publicist Says

After the sentencing, Mr Andrew Wyatt, Cosby's spokesman, read a lengthy statement in which he decried what he called "the most racist and sexist trial in the history of the United States". "Police officers, lay people, they're not allowed to tell you their opinion", the judge said.

"No one is above the law".

Cosby's lawyers are vowing to appeal his conviction, and they've already outlined some potential issues - from Judge Steven O'Neill's weighty decision to let five additional accusers testify at Cosby's retrial to new allegations that prosecutors used a doctored tape as evidence.

Women's advocates hailed Cosby's sentence as a landmark #MeToo moment.

The verdict is surely felt by the more than 50 women who have accused the once-beloved comedian of sexual abuse.

"It is time for justice". "Mrs. and Mr. Cosby are not getting divorced and she's with him in the Philadelphia home as we speak".

Cosby's publicist, Andrew Wyatt, said the trial was "the most racist and sexist" in US history.

Yet Cosby's publicist, Andrew Wyatt, maintained his client's innocence in a weird Tuesday afternoon press conference in Norristown, Pennsylvania. He appeared downcast, his eyes failing to meet the camera, in a mug shot released by authorities. However, Cosby's defense attorney, Joseph Green, argued that he is too old and frail to serve time behind bars, and instead recommended he be placed in a detention or rehabilitation facility.

"For decades, the defendant has been able to hide his true self and hide his crimes using his fame and fortune".

Montgomery County district attorney Kevin R. Steele had sought the maximum 10-year term.

"I'm sure the Jello Pudding tastes a little different in prison for Bill Cosby", one person said, while someone else asked, "Do you think Bill Cosby gets extra Jello in jail?" S***, I would actually be scared to say something because his entire life he has been put in such a positive light.

"There is solace, absolutely". "That's why he got away with it for so long!"

Once celebrated for his portrayal of the charming father figure Dr. Cliff Huxtable, Cosby was also declared a sexually violent predator - a designation that requires him to register as a sex offender and attend mandatory counseling for the rest of his life.

Cosby will be assessed by prison medical staff, psychologists, and other staff. Nine other women who accused Cosby were present in the courtroom on Tuesday and witnessed the sentencing. She told jurors in April he gave her a pill he claimed would ease her menstrual cramps but instead left her immobilized and unable to stop an assault she called "gross".

Cosby faced anywhere from probation to 10 years in prison.

TMZ was the first to report that Montgomery County Correctional Facility officials stated that the dinner menu for Cosby's first day in the prison included a chicken patty with gravy, mashed potatoes, mixed veggies, an iced tea mix to drink, and vanilla pudding for dessert.

There are about a dozen inmates with visual impairments in Pennsylvania, said Department of Corrections spokeswoman Susan McNaughton, and some of them have inmate guides to help lead them around.
