And his first night as a no-name inmate, who is only identified by the numbers stenciled on the back of his prison fatigues, reportedly did not go well.

"The problem is the nature of the crime", he told TMZ. "You know rapists are frowned upon in prison".

Last April, Cosby was convicted on three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault.

Update: Bill Cosby was led in handcuffs after a judge sentenced him to 3-10 years in state prison for sexual assault. "I think they they should have let him do his time under house arrest".

Cosby spent a few hours at the county jail Tuesday before heading to SCI Phoenix, a 3,830-bed lockup that opened two months ago.

Prisoners can exercise at the gym, attend classes in more than 30 rooms, visit the barbershop, and attend chapel services.

"We are taking all of the necessary precautions to ensure Mr. Cosby's safety and general welfare in our institution", said Corrections Secretary John Wetzel. He will soon be integrated into the general population area of the prison where he will receive "the programming required during his incarceration", after a series of evaluations.

Dirk Koetter isn’t really serious about playing Jameis Winston
Despite Koetter's best efforts to give the Bears two quarterbacks to prepare for, no one actually believes he'll make a switch. Taking him out of the lineup while the team is in first place would be an astoundingly bad decision by Koetter and his staff.

The judge deemed Cosby a "sexually violent predator". which apparently was the trigger for the choice of prisons.

Cosby must serve the minimum of three years before becoming eligible for parole.

"No one is above the law".

He appeared downcast, his eyes failing to meet the camera, in a mug shot released by authorities.

In recent years, dozens of women said that Cosby sexually abused them over several decades.

The athlete, who also co-starred in the Naked Gun movie trilogy, was famously acquitted of the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman in the mid-1990s. Cosby's sentencing closes the chapter on one of Hollywood's most prolific and horrifying serial sex offenders.

Wyatt dismissed this assessment Tuesday, saying that three of the psychologists who testified against Cosby were "white women who make money off accusing black men of being sexual predators". "Dr. Cosby has been one of the greatest civil rights leaders in the United States for over the last 50 years".
