Bill Cosby, once known as “America’s Dad” is headed to prison. Convicted in April of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004, a judge in Pennsylvania’s Montgomery County sentenced the disgraced comedian to three to 10 years in state prison, Tuesday.
Several women who accused Cosby of sexual assualt spoke out in the wake of the sentencing.
“I’m grateful to Andrea for standing strong,” said Kathrine McKee, who sued Cosby for defamation, on CNN. “I suffered for 40-plus years. He’s got three to 10 years. He shows no remorse whatsoever. He’s not sorry at all. … I’m glad he was convicted. I’m grateful that the judge has given him this time. I say a prayer for all of us women who have been affected by this through Bill Cosby’s hands.”
Meanwhile, Attorney Lisa Bloom shared a written statement from her client, Janice Dickinson.
“The harrowing memory of rape continues to this day,” Dickinson’s statement says. “At one point, I moved to Milan, Italy, to get away (but) the rape is etched into my soul. … I will never be the same.”
WIBC hosts Hammer and Nigel discussed the sentencing Tuesday afternoon:
“Good, he was clearly a creep and this had been going on for decades.”
“And I’m not one for big speeches, but the judge really laid into him at the sentencing.”
