  • Checkout Bill Cosby's mugshot after sex assault sentencing lailasnews 1

Pennsylvania authorities on Tuesday afternoon released Bill Cosby's booking photo after he was sentenced to three to 10 years in state prison following his conviction for sexual assault.

According to RadarOnline, the source snitched out the fact that Cosby is not adjusting well to being a prison inmate. While Cosby's survivors shared emotional reactions to the sentencing, his spokesperson Andrew Wyatt delivered one of the most absurd and nonsensical statements to the press.

He also added, weirdly, that one "is a practitioner of mindfulness", which "is an eastern-inspired practice that is controversial in the field of psychology." Um.

Wyatt went on to claim that three of the psychologists who testified against Cosby during his trial, including Kristen Dudley, were "white women" who "make money off of accusing black men of being sexual predators".

Ahead of his sentencing, Judge Steven O'Neill ruled Cosby to be a "sexually violent predator", meaning his name will appear on a sex-offender registry and will have to meet with counselors and report to authorities for the rest of his life.

Cosby was immediately taken into custody in handcuffs. Cosby spent the night in one of the 3,830 beds at the 164-acre maximum security prison.

The once revered comedian was found guilty of sexual assault in April for drugging Andrea Constand, a former Temple University employee, in his Philadelphia home in 2004.

He was also fined $25,000 for his conviction plus the legal fees of the prosecution team.

"Bill Cosby seeing the inside of a prison cell sends a strong message that predators - no matter who they are, from Hollywood to Wall Street to the Supreme Court - can no longer be protected at the expense of victims", said Sonia Ossorio, president of the National Organization for Women of NY.

He received an inmate number upon entering prison: NN7687.

The 81-year-old will owe $43,611.83 in court costs, according to court documents, which he was ordered to pay as part of his sentence.
