Bill Cosby sentenced – ‘Judgment day has come’, says attorney

by Staff writer




American veteran comedian Bill Cosby has been sentenced to 3 to 10 years in state prison after being found guilty in April of three counts of aggravated indecent assault, including drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004.

Cosby was also categorized as a sexually violent predator, meaning he must undergo counselling for life and be listed on the sex offender registry.

Cosby, 81, was denied bail and led out of the courtroom in handcuffs.

Gloria Allred, an attorney who represented some of Cosby’s accusers, applauded the “just outcome” in a statement after the sentencing.

“This has been a long journey to justice for all of the accusers, particularly for Andrea Constand and for her family. And we respect the fact that they have undergone and endured this journey to justice,” Allred said, speaking to reporters.

“This is a very important day. Judgment day has come.”

“Mr. Cosby has shown no remorse, and there has been no justice for many of the accusers who were barred from a court by the arbitrary time limits imposed by the statute of limitations,” she added, praising the accusers who were “brave enough to speak to law enforcement.”
