 On Tuesday, beloved television dad Bill Cosby was sentenced to prison for three to ten years for the drugging and sexual assault of Andrea Constand in 2004. Constand, who formerly respected Cosby and his work, is one of numerous women who have accused him of sexual abuse. During his April retrial at the Montgomery County Courthouse in front of Judge Steven T. O’Neill, the same location and judge of his previous trial, Cosby was convicted on the second day of deliberations. He was also fined $25,000; Bill Cosby chose not to comment on the final outcome of the trial. His original prison sentence had a thirty year maximum, ten years for each of the three counts of assault of which he was convicted. However, Judge O’Neill denied him bail, but merged the three ten-year counts into one, making the sentence a maximum of three to ten years. Mr. Green, Cosby’s lawyer, argued that house arrest would be a more appropriate punishment, but this request was declined. Cosby was also deemed a sexually violent predator.  Bill Cosby’s lawyers intend to pursue a challenging appeal against O’Neill’s decisions.
