NORRISTOWN, Pa. — Bill Cosby, who fell from grace as “America’s Dad” to a convicted sex offender, was sentenced Tuesday to three to 10 years in state prison.
Cosby, renowned for his role as Dr. Cliff Huxtable on "The Cosby Show," had been accused of sexual misconduct by dozens of women, but was only criminally charged in Constand’s case.
Cosby is the first star of his caliber to be convicted of sexual assault in the age of #MeToo.
Former model Janice Dickinson, who has accused Cosby of rape, began laughing uncontrollably until a sheriff told her to stop.
"Finally, Bill Cosby has been unmasked, and we’ve seen the real man as he’s headed off to prison.".
Cosby asked before he was sentenced if he would have to register if he travels to another city overnight.
Andrea Constand returns to the courtroom during a lunch break at the sentencing hearing for the sexual assault trial of entertainer Bill Cosby at the Montgomery County Courthouse on Sept. 24, 2018 in Norristown, Pennsylvania. »
