Bill Cosby spends first night in state prison

Bill Cosby is taken into custody in handcuffs at Montgomery County Courthouse

The Department of Corrections provided details of Cosby's incarceration Wednesday, one day after the 81-year-old comedian was sentenced to three to 10 years for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his home almost 15 years ago.

"This has been the most racist and sexist trial in the history of the United States", Cosby's spokesman Andrew Wyatt told the press after the sentencing. It's not clear what Cosby and his lawyers were joking about, but the report says that he was laughing as sheriff's deputies approached him to take him into custody.

"The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so", Kavanaugh said.

Yesterday's newscasts were reporting all about Bill Cosby, going into detail about his sentencing, the victim statements, and what his first meal would be in prison, which ironically included pudding.

Yet Cosby's publicist, Andrew Wyatt, maintained his client's innocence in a weird Tuesday afternoon press conference in Norristown, Pennsylvania.

Trump criticises Iran as 'corrupt dictatorship' in United Nations speech
Trump told the world leaders, who were evidently in high spirits, that the American economy is "booming like never before". Trump says the deal was a "horrible" agreement that didn't do enough to contain Iranian "aggression".

Cosby was found guilty in April of drugging and sexually assaulting a woman at his gated estate in 2004 after being barraged with similar accusations from more than 60 women over the past five decades. Cosby's attorney Tom Mesereau promised to appeal, saying at the time "The fight is not over".

Wyatt also accused prosecutors, without evidence, of falsifying evidence.

Cosby - who is legally blind and uses a cane - removed his watch, tie and jacket and walked out in a white dress shirt and red suspenders, his hands cuffed in front of him.

Cosby was declared a "sexually violent predator' just before his sentencing, requiring him to receive monthly counseling the rest of his life".
