Bill Cosby spends first night in state prison

Bill Cosby is pictured wearing prison uniform for the first time since being sentenced for sexual assault.

After dozens of women came forward with their stories, and a long and protracted court battle that left many discouraged, justice was finally served as serial predator Bill Cosby was sentenced to 3-10 years in prison for the aggravated indecent assault of Andrea Constand in 2004.

The judge also called the 81-year-old a "sexually violent predator", and it was determined that his name will be on a sex-offender registry sent to neighbors, schools, and victims.

Simpson says Cosby has another thing coming his way in prison unless he is placed in protective custody.

The disgraced actor, who is legally blind, looks forlorn and does not look directly at the camera.

A member of the prosecution team from Cosby's trials says Constand, the comedian's chief accuser, told her she was happy with his sentence.

Cosby will serve his time at SCI Phoenix, about 20 miles from his gated estate.

"34 months this has gone on", O'Neill said. Dr. Cosby has been one of the greatest civil rights leaders in the United States for over the last 50 years. "And no one should be treated disproportionately because of who they are, where they live, or even their wealth, celebrity or philanthropy", Montgomery County Judge Steven O'Neill said, according to The Associated Press.

In a statement issued after the sentence was handed down, Cosby's wife, Camille, claimed that a phone recording played at trial was doctored.

In addition, Cosby was fined $25,000 and denied bail while appealing the sexual assault conviction.

"For decades, the defendant has been able to hide his true self and hide his crimes using his fame and fortune", said Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele.

Sixty women have accused Cosby of sexual abuse.

Women's advocates hailed Cosby's sentence as a landmark #MeToo moment.

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.
