Bill Cosby has been officially sentenced to 3 to 10 years in jail. This decision comes after he was convicted of ‘three felony counts of aggravated assault’ earlier this year.
The Shade Room reports that according to TMZ, ‘after spending a few hours at the county jail, Cosby was transferred to a maximum-security facility. He is serving his time at the Pennsylvania State Correctional Institution Phoenix, in Schwenksville, PA.’
TSR continued and reposted that ‘The judge ruled Cosby a “sexually violent predator,” which was the reason behind the choice of prison. The 81-year-old is among some of the most violent offenders in the state.’

Fans and followers are arguing with one another after the decision was made. Some are defending Bill, and others claim he got what he deserved.
One follower of TSR posted ‘The black community is the group I know that will willingly cancel everyone else BUT rapists and pedophiles… “wElL I jUsT dOnT bELieVe iT” But if it we’re to happen to you then you’d want everyone to believe it. What a joke.’
Someone else said ‘For those who are saying “Poor Bill” just remember to not let your drinks out of sight next time you’re out socializing!’
Another person wrote the following message:
‘I don’t agree with what he did but damn why did they wait till this man is near his death to say something. I mean seriously. If it bothered them that much, they should have spoken on it way before. I know they have seen this man live his best life on tv all of these years. It doesn’t make any sense to me. Tell me exactly what justice is being really served here. God forbid this man could die tomorrow or next month then what yall gonna say then ??♀️ #justicewasserved #justicenotserved. Yall waited so long to open yall mouth and yall let this 81-year-old man live his best life all of these years. Now that he is old and suppose to be partially blind everyone wants to go in for the kill ??♀️. I hope this brings closure to those victims.’
Someone else said ‘This is kind of heartbreaking. Bittersweet. I’m conflicted about the whole matter.’
