Bill Cosby Arrives at Courthouse for Sentencing Hearing; Could Face Life in Prison


Bill Cosby arrived at the Montgomery County Courthouse on Monday for a two day sentencing hearing that will decide whether he goes home on probation or spends the rest of his life in prison.

The 81-year-old comedian appeared stoic as he entered the courthouse in Norristown surrounded by police officers.

Cosby was convicted of drugging and indecently assaulting Andrea Constand in his home in 2004. More than 60 women have accused Cosby of drugging assaulting them over 4 decades.

The first day of the sentencing hearing will focus on whether Cosby should be classified as a violent sex offender. He will be sentenced on the second day of the hearing.

Constand (the initial accuser) tweeted a Bible verse ahead of the hearing:

“Be wrathful, but do not sin; do not let the sun set while you are still angry; do not give the Devil an opportunity.”

Cosby’s wife Camille Cosby remains supportive of him. In an earlier statement she accused the judge of being biased against her husband.

“Bill Cosby was not afforded an impartial judge and he did not receive a fair trial,” she said. “Instead, my husband was forced to go to trial before a judge, Steven T. O’Neill, who had a bitter, longstanding feud with one of the key witnesses in the case, Bruce Castor.”

Bill Cosby Found Guilty on all three counts


The jury in Bill Cosby’s retrial found the TV icon guilty of all three counts of aggravated indecent assault on Thursday for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in a Philadelphia suburb in 2004.

The 80-year-old comedian faces up to 10 years in prison on each count, but would likely serve them concurrently.

After the trial concluded, Constand left through a side door in the courtroom, walking into a hallway with her arms around two women and a huge smile on her face. Cosby shouted at the prosecutor in court when his bail was discussed, observers said. 

The case against Cosby centered on testimony from Constand, a former employee with Temple University women’s basketball team. She testified that Cosby, a powerful trustee at Temple, drugged her and sexually assaulted her when she visited his home to ask for career advice.

Cosby’s defense team argued that their interaction was consensual. Constand is a con artist, they argued, who wanted a piece of Cosby’s fortune.

The case is the first celebrity sexual assault trial since the #MeToo movement began last fall, and as such, represents a test of how the cultural movement will translate into a courtroom arena.

BREAKING: Jury in Bill Cosby Trial Deadlocked


NORRISTOWN, PA – MAY 24: Bill Cosby departs the Montgomery County Courthouse after a preliminary hearing.

The jury in the Bill Cosby sexual assault case sent word to the judge that they are hopelessly deadlocked on day 4 of deliberations, meaning they can not unanimously reach a verdict on three counts. The judge ordered the jury to continue deliberations, saying it is too early to quit.

The panel of five women and seven men are sequestered at a Norristown, Pa. hotel, about 300 miles away from their homes in Allegheny County. The trial was moved from Allegheny County to Norristown because of concerns about pretrial publicity.

The 79-year-old comedian faces 10 years in prison if he is convicted of plying Andrea Constandt with drugs and sexually assaulting her in 2004. The former Temple University women’s basketball coach is among 10 women who accuse the television mogul of rape.

In riveting testimony Constand claimed Cosby gave her three blue pills that made her feel dizzy. She said she passed out and when she awakened her clothes were in disarray.

But Cosby denied giving Constand a date rape drug. He said he only wanted to make her “feel comfortable” so he gave her Benadryl.

“I wanted her to be comfortable and relaxed and be able to go to sleep after our necking session,” Cosby said in an earlier deposition.

Cosby’s defense rested on Monday after calling only one witness to testify on Cosby’s behalf. The defense later claimed they had a witness who was not permitted to testify.

In a sign of confidence, Cosby shouted his Fat Albert phrase “Hey, hey, hey!” when departing the courthouse on Tuesday.

Cosby’s wife Camille Cosby accompanied her husband to court on Monday. She has remained loyal to the Cosby Show star throughout his legal ordeal.

In minor related news, the White House confirmed Cosby will not be stripped of his Presidential Medal of Freedom.

America’s #1 Dad, Bill Cosby Charged With Sexual Assault.

The comedian was charged today for drugging and sexually assaulting a woman at his home 12 years ago — the first criminal charges brought against the comedian out of the torrent of allegations that destroyed his good-guy image as America’s #1 Dad.

This case sets the stage for perhaps the biggest Hollywood celebrity trial of this era and could send the 78-year-old “pudding pop” comedian to prison in the twilight of his life and barrier-breaking career.

Prosecutors accused him of rendering former Temple University employee Andrea Constand unable to resist, by plying her with pills and wine, then penetrating her with his fingers without her consent, when she was unconscious or unaware of what was happening.

She was “frozen, paralyzed, unable to move,” Montgomery County District Attorney-elect Kevin Steele said in announcing the charges. He said it is unclear what type of pills Constand was given, but he noted that Cosby has admitted giving Quaaludes to women he wanted to have sex with.

Cosby acknowledged under oath a decade ago that he had sexual contact with Constand but said it was consensual. Calls to his attorneys were not immediately returned.

He is to be arraigned this afternoon on a charge of aggravated indecent assault, punishable by five to 10 years behind bars and a $25,000 fine.

Former Penn State Coach Jerry Sandusky Arrested Again!


Jerry Sandusky was arrested and jailed Wednesday on new child sex abuse charges brought on by two new accusers, including one who said Sandusky molested him numerous times in his basement bedroom. This is an extremely SICK man!

The ninth accuser, currently 18, was 11 or 12 when he first met Sandusky in 2004. Sandusky took him to Penn State football games and gave him gifts and money, and later sexually assaulted him during overnight stays in a basement bedroom in Sandusky’s home, the grand jury said.

Sandusky forced the boy to perform oral sex and attempted on at least 16 occasions to anally penetrate him, sometimes successfully.

The victim also testified that on at least one occasion he screamed for help, knowing that Sandusky’s wife was upstairs, but no one ever came to help him.

Damn a trial people, I say authorities should just kill this sick ass pedophile now!!!! They should arrest his wife as well because she knew he was sick and stood idly by and remained married to him, knowing he was raping little boys.

I tried to avoid this story because the details are so vile, repulsive and disgusting. This man has tarnished and ruined the lives of 10 young boys. How many more will come forward?

In the meantime, Sandusky’s (The Second Mile charity for at-risk children) that he founded in 1977 for underprivileged children to cover up his reasoning for meeting and raping his victims, said in a statement that it has lost significant financial support and that some employees will be laid off over the next several months. Who cares? The organization should close down period, the community should in fact, burn that shit to the ground!!!

Sandusky is being held on a $1 million dollar bond and if he post bail, he will have to submit to electronic monitoring and house arrest, have no contact with victims and/or witnesses and have no unsupervised contact with minors.
