Bill Cosby has been sentenced to three to 10 years for the sexual assault of Andrea Constand. The once beloved comedian, actor, and philanthropist went into a courtroom on Tuesday, Sep.25 in Pennsylvania to receive his sentencing.

 

Cosby was deemed a “sexually violent predator” by a judge before the hearing, according to TMZ.

 

“I’m not permitted to treat him any differently based on who he is or who he was,” the judge said. “As she [Constand] said, Mr. Cosby, you took her beautiful, healthy young spirit and crushed it.”

 

Constand accused Cosby of raping her back in 2004 when she was working with him at Temple University’s athletic department. Constand’s statement was read to the courtroom during the hearing.

 

“The psychological, emotional and financial bullying included a slander campaign in the media that left my entire family reeling in shock and disbelief,” the statement read. “The sound of his voice over the phone felt like a knife going through my guts. The sight of the man who drugged and sexually assaulted me coming into the basketball office filled me with dread.”

 

The trial lasted 13 days and included testimonies from Constand and five other women who claim Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted them.

 
Cosby was also given a $25,000 fine and must pay prosecution costs as part of his sentencing. The judge denied Cosby bail. If Cosby serves the full term, he will be 91-years-old when he’s released.

 

Of course, Twitter users and celebrities had reactions to Cosby’s sentence.
