    Wild that there's a high chance he's released before he dies.

    He's 81, so he's outlived the average male life expectancy in this country. I think there's a higher change he dies in prison than he outlives his sentence. Then again, I think it also comes down to whether or not he's offered parole.

    Yeah I think his health will deteriorate quickly in prison. He already looks in bad shape

    The crime was committed 14 years ago, and unless I'm mistaken, it's all anecdotal evidence. There's no hard evidence tying him to the crime. I'm honestly glad he wasn't acquitted based on lack of hard evidence in an age where people want to see DNA for everything.

    yeah I'm just assuming that he goes to a country club prison and does easy time. I actually didn't read the headline- yesterday they said he was doing a bit under 3 years, and I figured that he can get out in half and be free at ~82. If he (deservedly) does 10 years, no way in hell he comes out.

    Look at this guy Supporter

    He admitted to it. He said he drugged women until they were unconscious and they didn’t say no so he was in the clear. That was his defense, he has no claim to innocence, he’s lucky to get off this easy.

    FWIW this was a great sentence given the PA sentencing guidelines for this specific crime. Also, considering that Cosby has continuously maintained his innocence this whole time, it's highly unlikely he'll get paroled at his minimum date.

    The bigger risk here is if something happens on appeal. It was fairly unusual for the Judge to have allowed the testimony of five other victims. As far as this goes, the good news is it will be many months before any appeal is even before the Superior Court, much less that some decision is reached.

    They should've made it remaining life in prison. Truly terrible.

    Aren't there like 60 women accusing him of the same crime? He gets 3 years? Wow.
    People get convicted of selling drugs and get 10 years. Makes no sense.
