"This has been the most racist and sexist trial in the history of the United States", Wyatt said, reading a prepared statement from his cellphone while standing under an umbrella in the pouring rain.

The sentencing comes after Constand's victim statement was released earlier today, where she wrote that "Bill Cosby took my handsome, healthy young spirit and crushed it".

Judge O'Neill also chose to designate Cosby a "sexually violent predator" under Pennsylvania law.

But that changed in May when Camille Cosby issued a lengthy Facebook post, in which she compared her husband to lynching victim Emmett Till and to other falsely accused African-American men.

Feden also said that as she watched Cosby during the proceedings, she didn't "even know that it was clear to him that this was judgment day". "He's hidden behind a character he created, Dr. Cliff Huxtable", Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele said at a news conference, referring to Cosby's best-known role.

As sentencing neared, Cosby's wife issued a blistering statement accusing O'Neill of "unethical behavior" and traveled to Harrisburg to file a complaint with a judicial ethics board.

Later, Cosby's publicist, Andrew Wyatt, criticized his client's prison sentence by using an interesting comparison.

"Shit, I would actually be scared to say something because his entire life he has been put in such a positive light", she continued.

Disgraced comedian Bill Cosby was sentenced to time behind bars on September 25, 2018, and his reaction to the news was shocking.

After the courtroom was emptied, Cosby was handcuffed with his hands in front of him, and, holding his cane (he is legally blind), he was led to a hallway. The $400 million lockup opened two months ago and can hold 3,830 inmates.

But Simpson, 71, said he believes Cosby, 81, should be serving his time in a more convenient location.

Ahead of the second trial, however, O'Neill gave prosecutors permission to call five women as witnesses. His lawyers asked for house arrest, saying he is too old and vulnerable to go to prison.

Cosby's official inmate number is NN7687. Chelan Lasha, who says Cosby assaulted her after giving her a pill in 1986.

Rea encourages victims of sexual assault to come forward.

Cosby's first trial previous year ended in a mistrial when jurors could not reach a unanimous verdict.
