Cosby's new home: Inside state-of-the-art Pennsylvania prison where disgraced comic will spend three to 10 years - and where staff have been accused of 'hate crimes' against inmates

Bill Cosby, 81, is handcuffed and led straight to prison after judge branded him a 'sexually violent predator'
Inside SCI Phoenix: The brand new prison where Cosby is expected to serve out his sentence

  • Bill Cosby, 81, has been sentenced to three to 10 years in state prison for drugging and sexually assaulting a woman in 2004
  • The comedian is expected to serve out his sentence at SCI Phoenix, which opened in July and cost $400M
  • It can house 3,830 inmates, is staffed by 1,200 full-time employees and features 164 acreage 
  • Cosby could end up in a long-term medical care unit in the prison but could face solitary because of his fame
  • While the prison is new, staff have already faced a litany of complaints about access to water and bathrooms
  • Some inmates say their property was defaced with etchings of genitals and swastikas by guards during their move in 

The comedian, 81, was sentenced Tuesday after his April conviction for having drugged and sexually assaulted Andrea Constand, a former Temple University women's basketball administrator, in 2004.

Cosby is expected to serve out his sentence at SCI Phoenix in Collegeville, Pennsylvania, although he will spend the first few days of his prison sentence at the Montgomery County Jail outside Philadelphia, according to a spokeswoman for the Montgomery County district attorney's office.

Cosby will then be taken to SCI Phoenix, where staff will assess his physical, medical and security needs. It's thought that he could end up in a long-term medical care unit at the prison.

The prison is brand new, and said to be state of the art. But Cosby might find himself in for a shock, as inmates have told The Inquirer the facility, which opened on July 9, had 'limited access to water' and the state's most restricted telephone policy. 

Many complained their belongings were defaced or stolen when inmates transferred into the new facility from the now-closed Graterford prison by members of the Department of Corrections' Emergency Response Team.

Inmates have claimed their personal photographs were graffitied, with one man reporting a swastika was drawn on his brother's forehead and a penis on his son's mouth, and many have described the defacing of their property as a 'hate crime'.

Others said there was a lack of public seating for them, and yard policy often saw them locked back inside early if they left the outdoor areas to use the bathroom.

SCI Phoenix is a maximum security, 3,830-bed, handicap-accessible, state-of-the-art prison which began operating earlier this year.

The $400million prison is staffed by 1,200 full-time employees and features 164 acreage inside its double ring of razor wire fences and a 1.5mile perimeter.  

Among the prison's program offerings are sex offender treatment, victim awareness and impact of crime classes.

If he’s deemed at risk because of his celebrity or as a risk to others, he’d be held in solitary confinement, spending most of the day alone in his cell.

Otherwise, he’d likely share a two-person cell, leaving for meals, exercise, counseling and other activities. He’d be free to bring a personal tablet for music or games but wouldn’t have internet access, corrections spokeswoman Amy Worden said.

The cells have bunk beds and storage lockers, as well as a stainless steel toilet and sink combo and a small desk and stool. 

Unlike older prisons, SCI Phoenix's manual key locks have been replaced with electronic cell doors monitored from a central location.   

While it's unclear what SCI Phoenix's long-term medical care facilities are like, other prisons LTC services, such as California Correctional Health Care Facility in Stockton, California, feature technology including cells with connectivity for medical equipment, emergency treatment and procedure rooms and a dialysis treatment center, according to KPCC.  

Immediately after his sentencing, Cosby was escorted from the courthouse and into a dark SUV before being taken to the Montgomery County Correctional Facility.

Bill Cosby, 81, was booked into the Montgomery County Correctional Facility outside Philadelphia on Tuesday afternoon after being sentenced to three to 10 years

Bill Cosby emerged from a Pennsylvania courtroom in handcuffs and was led straight to state prison on Tuesday after being sentenced to three to 10 years for drugging and molesting a woman more than a decade ago.

Judge Steven O'Neill handed down Cosby's sentence on Tuesday afternoon as the 81-year-old comedian sat back in his chair with his head on the headrest.

The comic, who was once known as America's Dad, removed his watch, tie and jacket in the courtroom before being escorted out in handcuffs while carrying his walking stick. 

'This was a serious crime. It is time for justice. Mr Cosby, this has all circled back to you. The time has come,' O'Neill said in sentencing him. 'No one is above the law, and no one should be treated differently.' 

The punishment came at the end of a two-day hearing at which the judge also declared Cosby a 'sexually violent predator'. 

The classification means that Cosby must undergo lifetime counseling and report quarterly to authorities. His name will also appear on a sex-offender registry sent to neighbors, schools and victims.  

Cosby was denied bail, fined $25,000 and ordered to pay prosecution costs, which are expected to be more than $44,000.

He declined the opportunity to address the court during his sentencing and sat smiling, laughing and chatting with his defense team while waiting for the judge's decision.

His wife of 54 years, Camille, was not in court during the sentencing.

He will then be taken to SCI Phoenix, a new state prison outside Philadelphia, where staff will assess his physical, medical and security needs.

Cosby could end up in a long-term medical care unit. He must serve the minimum of three years before becoming eligible for parole.

Prosecutors were seeking a sentence of five to 10 years in prison for the comic. His lawyers had asked for house arrest saying Cosby, who is legally blind, is too old and helpless to do time in prison.

The judge ruled that Cosby will not be entitled to bail when he appeals the conviction, which his attorneys have already vowed to do. O'Neill said Cosby 'could quite possibly be a danger to the community'.

This was a serious crime. It is time for justice. Mr Cosby, this has all circled back to you. The time has come.
 Judge Steven O'Neill

He was sentenced five months after being convicted in the first celebrity trial of the #MeToo era and all but completed the dizzying, late-in-life fall from grace for the comedian, TV star and breaker of racial barriers.

Cosby's lawyers had fought the 'sexually violent predator' designation, arguing that Pennsylvania's sex-offender law remains unconstitutional and that he is no threat to the public at his age. But the judge said prosecutors had met their burden of proof by 'clear and convincing' evidence. 

The once-beloved entertainer was convicted of violating Temple University women's basketball administrator Andrea Constand at his estate near Philadelphia in 2004. 

Constand smiled broadly upon hearing the punishment and was hugged by others in the courtroom. 

Cosby's spokesman Andrew Wyatt said immediately after the sentencing, calling it the most racist and sexist trial in the history of the United States.

'Mr Cosby knows that God is watching over him. He knows that these are lies. They persecuted Jesus and look what happened,' he said.

'I'm not saying Mr Cosby is Jesus, but we know what this country has done to black men for centuries. So Mr Cosby is doing fine. He's holding up well and everybody who wants to say anything negative, you're a joke as well.'

Bill Cosby has been sentenced to three to 10 years in state prison for drugging and molesting a woman at his suburban Philadelphia home more than a decade ago.

Judge Steven O'Neill handed down Cosby's sentence on Tuesday afternoon as the 81-year-old comedian sat back in his chair with his head on the headrest.

'This was a serious crime. It is time for justice. Mr Cosby, this has all circled back to you. The time has come,' O'Neill said.

Bill Cosby returns to Pennsylvania court to learn sentencing fate

Cosby's lawyers had fought the 'sexually violent predator' designation, arguing that Pennsylvania's sex-offender law remains unconstitutional and that he is no threat to the public at his age.

But the judge said prosecutors had met their burden of proof by 'clear and convincing' evidence.

When the ruling came down, a woman in courtroom shot her fist into the air and whispered, 'Yessss!'

The once-beloved entertainer was convicted of violating Temple University women's basketball administrator Andrea Constand at his estate near Philadelphia in 2004. 

Constand said in a statement submitted to the court and released Tuesday that she has had to cope with years of anxiety and self-doubt that have left her 'stuck in a holding pattern'. 

She said her training as a professional basketball player had led her to think she could handle anything, but 'life as I knew it' ended on the night that Cosby knocked her out with pills and violated her. Constand said she now lives alone with her two dogs and has trouble trusting people.

'When the sexual assault happened, I was a young woman brimming with confidence and looking forward to a future bright with possibilities,' she wrote in her five-page statement.

'Now, almost 15 years later, I'm a middle-aged woman who's been stuck in a holding pattern for most of her adult life, unable to heal fully or to move forward.'

The former TV star, who smiled as he got out of his car on Tuesday, planned to remain silent when given the opportunity to address the Pennsylvania court at his sentencing

In the years since Constand first went to police in 2005, more than 60 women have accused Cosby of sexual misconduct, though none of those claims have led to criminal charges.

Cosby became the first celebrity of the #MeToo era to be convicted.

The judge ruled on Cosby's sex-offender status after a defense psychologist, Timothy Foley, testified that the chances of the comedian committing another sex offense are 'extraordinarily low' because he is old, legally blind and needs help getting around.

A psychologist for the state, Kristen Dudley, testified on Monday that Cosby appears to have a mental disorder that gives him an uncontrollable urge to have non-consensual sex with young women. 

Cosby was smiling and joking with his spokesman and sheriff's deputies as he settled into the courtroom Tuesday morning. 

On day one of the sentencing, the comic laughed at times as the psychologist on the stand for the state portrayed him as a sexual predator with signs of a mental disorder.

Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt said the former TV star planned to remain silent when given the opportunity to address the court. Cosby did not testify at either of his two trials. 

Defense lawyer Joseph Green Jr. had urged the judge to ignore the protests and activism surrounding the case and send Cosby home on house arrest.

'The suggestion that Mr Cosby is dangerous is not supported by anything other than the frenzy,' Green said as demonstrators gathered outside the courthouse.

Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele said Cosby would no doubt commit similar crimes if given the chance, warning that the former TV star seemingly gets a sexual thrill out of slipping women drugs and assaulting them. 

'To say that he's too old to do that - to say that he should get a pass, because it's taken this long to catch up to what he's done?' Steele said, his voice rising. 'What they're asking for is a 'get out of jail free' card.'

Cosby, he said, has shown repeatedly that he feels no remorse over his actions. He said the sentence should send a message.

'Despite bullying tactics, despite PR teams and other folks trying to change the optics, as one lawyer for the defense put it, the bottom line is that nobody's above the law. Nobody,' the district attorney said.

At his current age, almost any sentence will likely be tantamount to life in prison. He would be incarcerated in the county prison if he is given less than two years as a sentence, and state prison if given any more time. 

If Cosby is sent to state prison it will be the State Correctional Institution in Phoenix and there is a very slight chance that he could avoid prison for the time served. 

His lawyers are sure to appeal the ruling regardless of the Judge Steven O'Neill's decision. 

After testifying for several hours at two trials, the first of which ended in a hung jury, Constand spoke in court Monday for just two minutes.

'The jury heard me. Mr Cosby heard me. Now all I am asking for is justice as the court sees fit,' said Andrea Constand, who submitted a much longer victim-impact statement that wasn't read in court.

Cosby's side didn't call any character witnesses, and his wife of 54 years, Camille, was not in court.  

FIVE BILL COSBY RAPE ACCUSERS WHO TESTIFIED AT RETRIAL

Five women  who have accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault have testified at the comedian's retrial. 

It was a big increase from the first trial, where there were just two women who took the stand - plaintiff Andrea Constand and Kelly Johnson.

This time Constand was joined by Janice Baker-Kinney, Janice Dickinson, Chelan lasha, Lisa-Lotte Lublin and Heidi Thomas.

Prosecutors had been hoping to have 13 women testify alongside Constand to speak to a pattern of behavior exhibited by the defendant.

Cosby, 80, has been accused of drugging and raping over 40 women.

Janice Baker-Kinney

JANICE BAKER-KINNEY

Kinney said she was 24 in May 1982 when she and a friend met Cosby at the casino where she worked in Reno, Nevada.

She said the three of them went back to Cosby's apartment, where he gave her some pills.

Baker-Kinney willingly took two pills and said she began to get blurry vision while playing backgammon with Cosby. 

Hours later, she claims, she woke up naked in bed with the comedian - and he told her to keep their encounter to themselves.

'I was mortified at what had happened,' said Kinney back in 2015 when she went public with her allegations at a press conference. 

'All this time, and for many, many years, I felt that this was my fault.' 

The defense tried to deny Baker-Kinney's admission as a witness by arguing that her story is 'nothing like Ms. Constand's' because she only met Cosby once, 'voluntarily' took quaaludes and apologized for passing out.

Janice Dickinson (left in 1982) claims that Cosby sexually assaulted her in 1982 after giving her an unknown pill while they were in Lake Tahoe

JANICE DICKINSON 

The supermodel claims that Cosby sexually assaulted her in 1982 after giving her an unknown pill.   

Dickinson said in that 2014 interview that Cosby invited her to dinner to discuss a role on The Cosby Show and at one point offered her a glass of wine and a pill.

'The next morning I woke up, and I wasn't wearing my pajamas, and I remember before I passed out that I had been sexually assaulted by this man,' she told Entertainment Tonight.

'I remember waking up with my pajamas off and there was semen in between my legs.'

Dickinson said her last memory of the night was of Cosby taking off his robe and climbing on top of her, and that the next morning she remembers 'a lot of pain.' 

The supermodel claimed the incident occurred in Lake Tahoe, California in 1982.

In her memoir, Dickinson detailed some of her evening in Lake Tahoe with Cosby but told a very different story.

She said she was drinking with Cosby at dinner and after being invited back to his room told him she was tired, at which point he slammed his door in her face.

Legal claims made by Cosby and his team may be why she decided not to print her current version of the story.

She said back in 2014 that she came forward because she believes the other victims who have spoken publicly, and that it is the 'right thing to do.'

As for what she would say to Cosby if she saw him, Dickinson did not mince words.

'How dare you,' she said.

'Go f*c* yourself. How dare you take advantage of me. And I hope you rot.' 

She is also currently preparing to face off with Cosby in a defamation lawsuit filed because of his response to her allegations.

Soon after that 2014 interview aired, Cosby's attorney Marty Singer responded to requests for comment by disputing Dickinson's claim that she was drugged and raped by his client and calling the allegation 'an outrageous defamatory lie.'

A judge ruled in November that because he sent out that statement and a subsequent press release Singer will also face claims in the case.

'We fail to see how justice is served by granting Singer a windfall immunity based on Cosby’s pursuit of a meritless motion,' wrote California Second District Court of Appeals Associate Justice Laurence Rubin.

It was also ruled that Dickinson could recover all legal costs related to the appeal from Singer and Cosby. 

Chelan Lasha in 1986

Chelan Lasha (left in 1986) claims that Cosby attacked her when she was just 17 in 1986 when she was an aspiring model

CHELAN LASHA 

Lasha said in a 2014 press conference that Cosby attacked her when she was just 17 in 1986 when she was an aspiring model.

She said her stepmother had sent pictures of her to the star and he called her at home in Las Vegas, inviting her to the Hilton Las Vegas, where he was performing and she had a job.

She then went up to Elvis Presley suite to meet him and after telling him she had a cold, he gave her a blue pill, which he said was an antihistimine, with a double shot of Amaretto. 

She said: 'He was rubbing my neck and saying that he might have to have someone come in and give me stress therapy.'

She claimed he told her to change into a Hilton bathrobe and wet her hair to see the modelling scout.

Someone did briefly come up to the room, pertaining to be from the Ford Modelling Agency -telling her to she needed to lose 10 pounds - and taking some pictures.

Then, Chelan said, Cosby walked her to the bedroom and gave her another shot of Amaretto, which he claimed would help her cold.

'I laid down,' she said: 'He laid down next to me on the bed and began pinching my left nipple and humping my leg while he was grunting.

'I could not open my eyes. I couldn't move or say anything. I felt something warm on my legs. Then I blacked out.

'Thirteen to sixteen hours later I woke up by hearing Mr Cosby clapping his hands and saying 'Daddy says wake up'. He gave me $1500. He said the money was to buy something nice for me and my grandmother and he also invited me to go to the Temptations show with my grandmother.

'My grandmother went but I did not go because I was too sick. Then he invited us to his show. My grandmother really want to go. I did not, but I went with her and heckled him. As a result, I was fired my from job.'

LISA-LOTTE LUBLIN 

Lublin said she met Cosby in 1989 at a hotel in Las Vegas and that he asked her to perform an improvisation so that he could evaluate her acting.

According to the ex-model, she and Cosby were in the Elvis Suite at the Hilton Hotel when he offered her two drinks and proceeded to pet her hair.

A short time later she passed out, but she remembered the color of the walls in the room and a flood of bright light she said in a 2015 press conference. 

She said that she believes she was sexually assaulted by Cosby while passed out in the hotel.

Prior to this, she and her mother had gone for a run with the comedian.

The defense argued that Lublin assumes she is a victim based on other media accounts but can only remember Cosby stroking her hair. 

Heidi Thomas in 1984

Heidi Thomas (left in 1984) said she found herself in bed next to a naked Bill Cosby who was 'forcing himself' in her mouth back in 1984

HEIDI THOMAS 

In 1984, Heidi Thomas, nee Johnson, was a 24-year-old model from Denver, Colorado, who was dreaming of a career in acting.

Thomas was being represented by the city's top modelling agency, JF Images, but by 1984 she was questioning whether or not she wanted to stay in the business.

Then one day in the spring of 1984, she got a call from an agent who told her that a famous entertainer was searching for young talent to mentor.

Thomas said that Annie Maloney, of JF Images, instructed her to travel to Reno, Nevada, where she was supposed to meet with Bill Cosby, who allegedly had expressed interest in becoming her acting coach.Cosby greeted Thomas at the entrance and ushered her inside, according to the woman.

The aspiring actress began by performing a monologue for Cosby, who then asked her to do a cold read of a person who was intoxicated.

Thomas said Cosby was not impressed because to his mind, she was not convincing as a drunk. 

She recalled that Cosby wanted her to relax, so he poured her a glass of Chablis.

The married music teacher said that her memory of the next several hours is very hazy, but when she woke up later that night, she found herself in bed next to a naked Bill Cosby who was 'forcing himself' in her mouth.

According to the woman, the married comedian then got on top of her and said to her: 'I'm your friend... your friend is gonna [ejaculate] again,' according to the 54-year-old mother of three.

Thomas said she was confused as to what happened and eventually stormed out of the room and slammed the door behind her, but she later apologized to Cosby for being rude.

She spent three more days with Cosby and said they were all hazy and a blur. 

The defense argued she has given three versions of her story.

If my mother, daughter or siter were in that position I would know in first hand some of us dont have any regards on our family, all those claims they say they were afraid to,come forward afraid of what? Afraid to lose their career, then that's a choice, after midnight you in a man's hotel room handed you a pill you take it, than he gave you water you took it, now you did not tell any family members about what happened even after a week or a month, let me guess they were afraid of their can't members too, aren't their family suppose to help them And care for them? Only an idiot cannot see there are many things wrong with all those women coming forward?

But if many do their home work I they will understand what's going on, but when you have a bunch of dumb niggers waiting for the white men to feed them with dumb news they will watch the best of the best fall. The white mob from Hollywood who want Cosbys work teamed up with the kkk on law enforcement the best way to get you, they are torturing him, now the next thing that will happen, they will pay and inmate to kill him, or a guard and claim he commit suicide, like Michael Jackson doctor was paid by Sony and Prince doctor was paid by Warner brothers, b3cause of so many retarded niggers uninform running around they can't see, white people will do anything to own what you build that's why black artists and entertainers don't own anything they do, but when the last time you heard white entertainers fall victim like this. Retarded niggers wake up

This stuff goes far beyond Cosby. Bill O’Rielly had the studio honchos paying settlements and still wouldn’t fire the guy. Matt Lauer also. If any of them new they would lose their jobs with these type of allegations they wouldn’t have committed these acts.
In my opinion their big time network bosses were doing the same thing and didn’t care. Like it’s their privilege to have their way with women. I’m waiting to see what Weinstein Kevin Spacey and all the rest get for their crimes against women.

It’s terrible thin all these women have the same story. When you are rich and famous you can get sex for free, why drug women and take advantage. It’s just sad. Absolute Power corrupts absolutely!

Wonder if the comments would be the same if your mothers, sisters, or daughters were the ones making the allegations?

They railroaded that brother from the word go, this is strategic. To kill any beliefs you have in anyone of color in America, this man tried to purchase a major network station and also started touring with Tavis Smiley to address the state of Black America. That was the beginning to his end. They want you to stay Ignorant and needy, never ever standing on your own and anyways thanking master for the crumbs he give you. Stay Black and Stay Strong. This is the start of the annihilation of the black man.

This is what the media is not telling people, but since the community like to wait for white people to inform them, they will let any one fall:

Judge Steven O’Neill was an Assistant District Attorney for Montgomery County Deborah O’Neill, his wife is a psychotherapist who works with with sexual assault survivors with the DA who may be family members and good freinds, how could Bill Cosby get a fair Trial?
