"They persecuted Jesus and look what happened", Wyatt also said, according to CNN.

During jury selection, they accused prosecutors of illegally removing a black woman from the pool on the basis of her race and alleged that a prosecution team member said "something that was discriminatory and repulsive". Cosby spent the night in one of the 3,830 beds at the 164-acre maximum security prison.

"Mr. Cosby, any comments sir?" a reporter asked.

He did not say a word.

At his sentencing on Monday, Cosby's defense attorneys anxious that Cosby's age, vision impairment and declining health could make him a target. Neither were his children.

Cosby declined to address the courtroom during the sentencing hearing and sat rigidly as O'Neill explained why state prison is mandated.

"I always look for my strength in the victims, and Andrea Constand was unbelievable", Feden said on NBC's "Today" show Wednesday. "Mr. Cosby, this has all circled back to you". That was followed by an accusation by Deborah Ramirez, who said Kavanaugh exposed himself to her while she was drunk at a college party.

"I heard the very clear impact on your life", the judge told Constand during sentencing.

Cosby's accusers are expressing zero sympathy for him.

Fox Decides to Ditch Its Stake in Sky for $15 Billion
Disney had been expected to use its Sky holdings as leverage for some Comcast assets, such as Comcast's stake in Hulu. Fox had previously agreed to sell the stake in Sky to Walt Disney as part of a separate deal.

Rea says it often takes time for sexual assault victims to come forward because it takes courage and self-esteem.

After the sentence, the defense blurted out a request for bail during the appeal process, citing a problem with the audio recording of phone calls recorded by Constand.

In addition to his sentence his punishment include a $25 000 fine and the judge declared him a sexually violent predator - which subjects him to monthly counselling for the rest of his life.

In the future, balancing the rights of the victim with the rights of the accused will be a challenge, considering the difficulty of gathering evidence from decades-old crimes.

He slept at the State Correctional Institution Phoenix in Collegeville after a short time at Montgomery County Jail in Lower Providence Township, where he was brought immediately following the sentencing. Judge Steven O'Neill (who sentenced Cosby) helped to carry the "war" out, Wyatt said.

Cosby broke racial barriers in the entertainment world in the 1960s but later became the first celebrity of the #MeToo era to be convicted.

The person said Cosby wanted his wife, who didn't attend his sentencing, to exhaust their resources to get him out of prison.

In the meantime, his family and aides are pressing his case in the court of public opinion. The Constand case was the only allegation that led to criminal charges.

Cosby's lawyers tried to get O'Neill to step aside before the retrial, but never mentioned the feud.
