How Bill Cosby Has Spent First Week in Prison

It has been one week since Bill Cosby was sentenced to prison for sexual assault, and we now know how he has been passing the time.

TMZ reports that the former TV star is being housed at Pennsylvania State Correctional Institution Phoenix in Schwenksville, PA, but has not yet been moved into the general population.

He has been spending his days being escorted around by a personal guide, as the aging comedian is legally blind, and getting friendly with the prison staff.

Cosby also reportedly speaks to his wife — Camilla Cosby — on the phone every day, with his rep Andrew Wyatt saying that the two mostly speak about plans to try and have his conviction overturned.

Additionally, Cosby is said to have access to the prison's library, but spends his meals either in his cell alone or in an open room.

On Sept. 25, Cosby was sentenced to three to 10 years in prison after being convicted of sexually assaulting former Temple University employee Andrea Constand.

Even with an entire week having passed since the sentencing, many are still talking about it on social media.

"If you think men like Bill Cosby and R. Kelly, who largely escaped accountability for decades, represent either Black manhood or the experiences of Black men in America...then I question YOUR ideas of who Black men are," tweeted writer Jamilah Lemieux.


"People be saying some dumb sh*t and acting like it make sense. It's simple. Bill Cosby created a TV show that has wonderful life lessons which I will continue to love and watch. It does not excuse that fact that he was a serial rapist that wasn't prosecuted until his 70s," another person commented.

Cosby is not currently allowed to have visitors but he likely be allowed to in about a week.
