Amber Rose has become the latest celebrity to comment on Bill Cosby's prison sentence. "So, Mr. Cosby's doing fine, he's holding up well and everybody who wants to say anything negative, you're a joke as well".
Corrections officials announced Wednesday that Cosby - now known as Inmate No. NN7687 - will serve his sentence at SCI Phoenix, a new state prison about 20 miles from the gated estate where a jury concluded he drugged and molested a woman in 2004.
OJ Simpson has shared his thoughts on the Bill Cosby case, after the actor was sentenced to three to 10 years in prison this week.
"They took my cane, tie and shoelaces because they think I will harm myself", said Cosby speaking to Camille. He will be transferred to SCI Phoenix, a maximum-security prison in Collegeville, Pennsylvania, according to USA Today.
Even so, legal experts said the lack of a written deal with Castor, as well as the fact that Cosby had his own lawyers at the time, would make it hard for Cosby to argue that he had an ironclad agreement.
At a press conference Tuesday, Montgomery County DA Kevin Steele said Cosby could likely expect a bill from the Sheriff's Office as well.
Bill Cosby took my lovely, healthy young spirit and crushed it.
Montgomery County Det. James Reape caused a stir when he opined from the witness stand that he had "strong beliefs" that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted Constand.
Cosby will meet with staff from the prison's medical, psychology, and records departments, as part of standard practice to assess new inmates, Worden said.
"I don't remember anyone ever sentencing a blind octogenarian who is a first-time offender to state prison", his lawyer Joseph Green told Judge Steven T. O'Neill.
Inmate dining facilities are seen in the West section of the State Correctional Institution.
Ms Constand, 45, said in a written statement submitted to the court on Monday that the attack had turned her into a woman who was "stuck in a holding pattern for most of her adult life, unable to heal fully or to move forward".
Cosby's publicist said afterward that a forensic expert found that a tape Constand's mother made of a 2005 telephone call with Cosby had been manipulated in two places and was "not an authentic recording".
On how Cosby is doing: "Mr. Cosby knows that God is watching over him".
Montgomery County Assistant District Attorney Kristen Feden said Wednesday on NBC's "Today" that Constand gave her strength as she went through the hard process of prosecuting Cosby.
