Bill Cosby sentenced to 3 to 10 years in prison for sexual assault Bill Cosby sentenced to 3 to 10 years in prison for sexual assault[/caption] Comedian Bill Cosby has been sentenced to three to ten years in state prison for sexual assault. Cosby, 81, has also been categorised as a sexually violent predator, meaning he must undergo counselling for life and be listed on the sex offender registry. The actor declined to make a statement when a judge gave him the opportunity. At a retrial in April, Cosby was found guilty of three counts of sexual assault for drugging and molesting Andrea Constand in 2004. Judge Steven O’Neill has also denied Cosby’s request for bail pending appeal. After delivering the sentence, Judge O’Neill said: “Mr Cosby you took her beautiful healthy young spirit and crushed it.” He told Ms Constand he “heard the very clear impact” the assault had on her life.

Tuesday’s classification means he will need to register with state police and notify any community he lives in of his sex offender status, as well as undergo mandatory counselling for life. Neighbours, childcare centres and schools will have be notified of the whereabouts of the entertainer once known as “America’s Dad”.
