From the Hollywood Reporter:
Bill Cosby has been sentenced to three to 10 years in state prison for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his estate near Philadelphia in 2004. He has been sentenced to “total confinement,” a judge ruled on Tuesday.
Ahead of the Tuesday sentencing, Judge Steven O’Neill ruled that Cosby is a “sexually violent predator.” The classification means that Cosby must undergo monthly counseling for the rest of his life and report quarterly to authorities. His name will appear on a sex-offender registry sent to neighbors, schools and victims.
When the ruling came down, a woman in courtroom shot her fist into the air and whispered, “Yessss!” Cosby’s lawyers had asked for house arrest, saying 81-year-old Cosby — who is legally blind — is too old and helpless to do time in prison.
