Bill Cosby sentenced to 3-10 year for sexual assault

He will now have to have counseling every month for the rest of his life, and report to authorities every quarter.

As the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania pointed out in their sentencing memorandum asking for the maximum prison time, "These assaults spanned decades and demonstrate an ingrained pattern of criminality".

She also accused Cosby of showing no remorse, as did Judge Steven O'Neill during the sentencing hearing.

The AP does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they come forward publicly, which Constand and other accusers have done.

He added: 'As she [Constand] said, Mr. Cosby, you took her handsome, healthy young spirit and crushed it'.

Cosby, who is 81, chose not to speak in court before the sentencing.

More than 50 other women have also accused him of sexual abuse going back decades, but because numerous complaints were too old to prosecute, the Constand case was the only allegation that led to criminal charges.

Bill Cosby's spokesman Andrew Wyatt said outside a Pennsylvania courtroom Tuesday: "Mr Cosby knows that God is watching over him. he knows that these are lies". O'Neill allowed five of them to testify at trial, while others came to watch the court proceedings.

More than 50 women have accused Cosby of sexual abuse going back decades, with most complaints too old to prosecute.

In a sentencing memorandum, prosecutors said that "extraordinary display of disrespect" was evidence of "who this convicted criminal defendant actually is". "The jury thinks otherwise".

Bill Cosby had been on house arrest since the verdict.

The comic once known as America's Dad faced anywhere from probation to 10 years in prison after being convicted in April in the first celebrity trial after the #MeToo movement was popularised following a number of allegations against well-known individuals in October 2017.

According to Variety, Cosby remained seated and showed no emotion as his sentence was handed down. While the defence asked their client to remain under house arrest pending an appeal, the judge ordered him to be remanded into custody.

He is required to pay $25,000 in fines and an estimated $44,000 in prosecution fees.

"The behaviors are beyond their controls, so they are urged to act on it". Psychologist and board member Kristen Dudely on Monday testified that after a review of trial testimony and police documents, she does believe Cosby meets the criteria for the sexual offender label.

A judge has ruled that Bill Cosby is a "sexually violent predator".

On Monday, the judge heard from a state-appointed psychologist who said the designation was necessary because there was a risk of Cosby committing another offense. He said Cosby "could quite possibly be a danger to the community".

Judge O'Neill also made a decision to designate Cosby a "sexually violent predator" under Pennsylvania law. "I put a high degree of weight on the impact of the crime on the victim and her family", said O'Neill.

"The victims can not be un-raped".

Andrea Constand had just a brief statement.

Cosby was convicted in April of knocking Constand out with pills and molesting her at his suburban Philadelphia home.

Montgomery Count District Attorney Kevin Steele rejected the idea that Cosby's age and failing health entitled him to mercy. O'Neill last week denied the motion, calling it untimely and "wholly without merit", court records show.
