Fourteen years ago, Bill Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted Andrea Constand. Fast forward to present day, Cosby now looks to spend three to ten years in prison.

  Pennsylvania Judge Steven O’Neil stated that Cosby is a “sexually violent predator.” Even though Cosby is just now getting his sentence after fourteen years, Constand actually came out in 2005 to the police with the incident. No charges were pressed and the whole situation was settled in civil court. However, with the rise of the #MeToo movement, many women came out to say how Cosby had done similar things to them.

  In April, Cosby was charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault on Constand.

  In response to this, Daylen Almaraz (11) put in his thoughts on the topic saying that “I think the reason that [they are] cracking down on him is because he is a celebrity.”

  Finally, in September 2018, Cosby was sentenced to three to ten years in prison. Cosby’s spokesperson, Andrew Wyatt, even took to Twitter saying, “They persecuted Jesus and look what happened. [I am] not saying Mr. Cosby’s Jesus, but we know what this country has done to black men for centuries.”

  Although Wyatt has been saying this, the victims of Cosby’s abuse, such as Kathy Mckee and Chelan Lasha, have rejoiced with Cosby’s sentencing.

  Matthew Blanco (11), glad about the sentencing, said “I think that this is a great step in our society.”

  Cosby must now pay $25,000 plus extra costs for the prosecution. On top of that, Cosby is to be registered as a sex offender. After being transferred from Montgomery County Correctional Facility, Cosby will be spending his nights for the next three to ten years in Phoenix State Correctional Institute.
