#Cosby gets 3-10 years for sexual assault. #Trump admits on tape to sexual assault against women & he becomes president. #Kavanaugh has been accused & yet he’s up for #SupremeCourtJudge. If we’re gonna convict sexual predators to the pen, shouldn’t we convict them all? #TeamDl

More than 60 women have come forward in the past few years with accounts of Cosby drugging and assaulting them, but the Pennsylvania action was the only criminal case in the country due to its longer-than-usual statute of limitations for sex crimes.
If Bill Cosby outlives the jail sentence….

Bill Cosby is set to serve 3 to 10 years in prison, but when he’s released he’s expected to be nominated to the Supreme Court.

Here is a sampling of the reactions coming in about his sentencing:
Cosby must serve at least three years in state prison before he can petition for some form of supervised release. However, under Pennsylvania law, having the ability to seek supervised release is no assurance he will get it.
Having been scheduled opposite “The Cosby Show” I too could have made a victim impact statement.

Bill Cosby sentenced to 3-10 years for sexual assault that took place years ago, but Brett Kavanaugh can still go to the U.S. Supreme Court without even an FBI investigation into sexual assault allegations against him.

"This is a very important day; judgment day has come." "This has been a long journey to justice for all of the accusers — particularly for Andrea Contand and her family," attorney Gloria Allred told reporters outside the courtroom in Norristown, PA, referring to the woman Cosby sexually assaulted in 2004.
Damn. Multi-millionaire sex predator — but he’s black. For Trump, this is the Kobayashi Maru of presidential pardons. https://t.co/hEPBsJLPQQ

Reaction is coming in to the sentencing of Bill Cosby, who went from "America's Dad" to "sexually violent predator" after his conviciton in a 2004 sexual assault case. A suburban Philadelphia judge today gave the comic actor three to 10 years in state prison, and Cosby was led out of the courtroom in handcuffs — and on camera.
