Bill Cosby was sentenced Tuesday to three to 10 years in state prison by a Pennsylvania judge who had designated the comedian a "sexually violent predator." Judge Steven O'Neill sentenced Cosby in a Norristown, Pennsylvania, courtroom, and then denied bail during pending appeals, capping a two-day hearing attended by about a dozen women who accused Cosby of sexual assault, including Andrea Constand, whom he was convicted of assaulting in his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. He ordered that Cosby be taken into custody immediately. Cosby, who had removed his pinstriped suit jacket, was escorted out of the courtroom by guards with his hands cuffed in front of him. He held his cane in his right hand. “It’s been a long journey to get here and today justice was served. It has been a long time coming, but it arrived when a convicted felon named William H. Cosby Jr. left the courtroom in handcuffs headed off to state prison for his crimes," Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele said with Constand standing at his side at a press conference following the sentencing. Judge O'Neill rejected a request from defense attorneys to allow Cosby to be released on bail pending appeals. Mark was in the court room and will has the details with Tony.
