Bill Cosby sentenced to three to 10 years in prison

Bill Cosby departs the Montgomery County Courthouse on the first day of sentencing in his sexual assault trial

Judge Steven O'Neill has declared that Cosby will serve anywhere between 3-10 years in prison.

She told the jurors she felt powerless as Cosby groped her breasts, penetrated her with his fingers and masturbated himself with her hand.

"Cosby's sentencing should serve as a reminder to abusers everywhere that no one operates with impunity", the organization posted on Twitter. As he shuffled by a sea of reporters, the comedian's thin wooden cane was between his handcuffed wrists. "We're glad the judgment day has finally come for Mr. Cosby", whom she said "has shown no remorse".

Prosecutors have argued that the nature of Cosby's crime as well as his alleged history of misconduct warrant a lengthy prison term.

The judge said he recognized the defendant's age and blindness, but said they could not be the determining factors. Mr Cosby knows that God is watching over him. he knows that these are lies. Cosby is 81 years old.

Being now ruled as a sexually violent predator, Bill Cosby name will now appear in sex-offender registry which will be further circulated to schools, victims and in textbooks.

Cosby has also been ordered to pay a $25,000 fine.

'I'm not going anywhere' after latest misconduct allegation
Ford at some time, but he said they were not friends and did not travel in the same social circles. "We're going to stick to it". The latest allegation is that the nominee once exposed his genitals to a Yale University classmate at a party.

The judge heard final prosecution and defense remarks during the morning session before he pronounced sentence. Cosby could also be allowed to remain out of prison until his legal appeals are resolved.

Cosby cemented his family-friendly reputation playing the affable Dr. Cliff Huxtable in the 1980s television comedy "The Cosby Show".

Bill Cosby victim Andrea Constand, who's led the charge against the disgraced comedian, submitted a victim-impact statement at Cosby's sentencing on Monday.

Montgomery Count District Attorney Kevin Steele rejected the idea that Cosby's age and failing health entitled him to mercy. The Constand case is the only allegation that has resulted in a conviction.

He was found guilty in April of three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault.

She testified that Cosby has a mental disorder that attracts him to non-consenting women, and that "he is likely to re-offend".

The first jury deadlocked in 2017.

FIFA Awards: Messi Among 29 Percent Voters Who Opted For Modric
But while Messi didn't make the final short-list of three, Ronaldo and Mohamed Salah were in the mix with Modric this time around. The trophy returned to Madrid given that the holder till then was Ronaldo, who left Madrid to join Turin side, Juventus .

She says the Cosby team's subsequent attacks on her character left her with "insurmountable stress and anxiety". The defense wants Cosby sent home on house arrest.

For one, the #MeToo movement had been unleashed, toppling bad-behaving men whose abuse had previously been kept secret. She said she had been a "young woman brimming with confidence" before Cosby took that from her. That was four more women than the judge permitted during the first trial.

Experts said the trial was a game-changer.

When the women took the witnesses stand, a pattern emerged.

Steele said Cosby would no doubt commit similar crimes if given the chance, warning that the former TV star seemingly gets a sexual thrill out of slipping women drugs and assaulting them.

They also challenged accuser Janice Baker-Kinney's delayed accusation.

The AP does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they come forward publicly, which Toronto-based Constand and other women have done.

The men in the video did not resemble images of two dead attackers published by Iranian media in the aftermath of the attack. Economic protests and other demonstrations have spiked across Iran, putting new pressure on Rouhani's government.

"This is about a person who put himself in a situation of being a mentor, but we know he had other intentions just from the beginning", he added.
