Bill Cosby wears prison uniform in new mugshot

Bill Cosby was taken Tuesday evening to the Pennsylvania State Correctional Institution at Phoenix to begin serving his prison sentence of three to 10 years for sexual assault.

Under prison policy, Cosby will be allowed phone calls and visits and will get a chance to exercise.

John Wetzel, the Corrections Secretary, said they're taking all of the precautions to ensure his well-being. "The long-term goal is for him to be placed in the general population to receive the programming required during his incarceration". "And she said "yes.' And that meant the world to me", Feden said".

Reportedly, Cosby's family is intending to appeal his conviction on three counts of aggravated sexual assault.

Cosby was the subject of "the most racist and sexist trial in the history of the United States", his publicist, Andrew Wyatt, told reporters just minutes after he was led out of the courthouse in shackles on Tuesday.

Feden also said that as she watched Cosby during the proceedings, she didn't "even know that it was clear to him that this was judgment day".

Cosby's lawyers again demanded a mistrial when a prosecutor suggested they were wrong to help a star defense witness write a statement outlining how she said Andrea Constand, the woman Cosby was convicted of drugging and molesting, mused about framing a celebrity.

"Evidence is overwhelming that it was planned predation", O'Neill said during the sentencing before saying that Cosby would be classified as a "sexually violent predator" on sex offender registries, undergo lifetime counseling and regularly report to law enforcement.

Steele said Cosby could be sent to Laurel Highlands, a state prison for lower-risk inmates on the other side of the state, about 70 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.

"CBS News" Jericka Duncan spoke with one of the prosecutors, Kristen Feden.

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

Though his three charges each carry a maximum possible sentence of 10 years, O'Neill said they were merged into one because they're from the same incident.

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 has faced a barrage of similar accusations from more than 60 women over the past five decades, but Constand's case is the only one that went to trial.

Cosby did not speak during the two-day hearing and merely shook his head after O'Neill delivered his sentence.
