  • Checkout Bill Cosby's mugshot after sex assault sentencing lailasnews 2

Dickinson was one of six accusers, along with Constand, to take the stand at the retrial which saw Cosby convicted of sexual assault, and sentenced Tuesday to a minimum of three years in prison.

Bill Cosby was sentenced to no less than three years and up to a maximum of 10 years in prison today following an April conviction on three counts of aggravated indecent assault of Andrea Constand.

Page Six reports that Cosby was seen joking and laughing with his legal team after Judge Steven O'Neill sentenced him to 3 to 10 years and ordered him remanded in custody without bail. In addition to this, Cosby has also been termed as a sexually violent predator.

Immediately after his sentencing, Cosby was escorted from the courthouse and into a dark SUV before being taken to the Montgomery County Correctional Facility.

The 81-year-old's lawyers had asked for house arrest, saying the legally blind entertainer was too old to do time behind bars.

President Donald Trump will rally in Texas for Cruz next month, which was once unthinkable in the nation's largest red state. The state "needs a senator who will work with the president where we can and stand up to him where we must", O'Rourke said.

Cosby will serve his time at SCI Phoenix, about 20 miles from his gated estate.

The decision to put the actor away came after dozens of women accused him of drugging and assaulting them. Dr. Cosby has been one of the greatest civil rights leaders in the United States for over the last 50 years. His publicist Andrew Wyatt spoke to Tictoc (via The Washington Post) where he compared the comedian to Jesus and said that race played a role in the conviction.

Cosby's first mugshot was released hours after the trial hearing concluded and showed the comedian still wearing the suit he wore to court. His wife of 54 years, Camille, was not in court.

He went on to accuse the prosecution and even the judge of conspiring to produce "falsified evidence" against Cosby. A psychologist for the state testified that Cosby appears to have a mental disorder characterized by an uncontrollable urge to have sex with women without their consent.

"For decades, the defendant has been able to hide his true self and hide his crimes using his fame and fortune", said Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele.
