SCHWENKSVILLE, Montgomery County - Bill Cosby arrived at SCI Phoenix Tuesday night, where he will serve his 3- to 10-year prison sentence for aggravated indecent assault, the state Department of Corrections announced. The first came from Christine Blasey Ford, who claimed that in the 1980s, Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in a bedroom during a party.

William Henry "Bill" Cosby needs no introduction.

"This has been the most racist and sexist trial in the history of the United States", Wyatt said, reading a prepared statement from his cellphone while standing under an umbrella in the pouring rain.

"We prosecute where the evidence takes us and that was done in this case", District Attorney Kevin Steele said Tuesday. He removed his watch, tie and jacket in the courtroom before being escorted out in handcuffs while carrying his walking stick.

Inmate number NN7687, otherwise known as Bill Cosby, was moved to a prison in Pennsylvania after his sentencing and new images were taken for their records. Again, he is not looking at the camera as he appears to be on the verge of tears.

The judge deemed Cosby a "sexually violent predator". which apparently was the trigger for the choice of prisons.

"Using his power and prestige within the community, he is able to meet people, befriend them, and it is during that friendship that the sexual assault occurs", she said. Another DA reopened the file a decade later and charged the TV star after stand-up comic Hannibal Buress' riff about Cosby being a rapist prompted other women to come forward and after a federal judge, acting on a request from The Associated Press, unsealed some of Cosby's startling, decade-old testimony in Constand's related civil suit.
