OJ Simpsons believes Bill Cosby ‘will be a target’ in prison

OJ Simpsons believes Bill Cosby ‘will be a target’ in prison

Prisoners arriving at SCI Phoenix get a uniform, basic toiletries, linens, towels and state-issued boots, Pennsylvania Department of Corrections spokeswoman Amy Worden told CNN.

Cosby is serving his time at SCI Phoenix, a prison approximately 20 miles from the building where a jury confirmed that he assaulted Andrea Constand in 2004 after giving her narcotics without consent.

A decade later, dozens of women came forward to say Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted them over his decades as a powerful actor and comedian.

O.J. Simpson, the former National Football League player, said he is concerned that Bill Cosby will be attacked in prison, saying that the elderly Cosby should serve time under house arrest.

"I always look for my strength in the victims, and Andrea Constand was fantastic", Feden said on NBC's "Today" show Wednesday.

Christine Blasey Ford, a 51-year-old psychology professor at Palo Alto University in Northern California, is alleging that Kavanaugh attempted to rape her at a party in 1982.

Following the sentencing hearing, Constand's complete victim impact statement was made public, and in it she recounted the crime she was victim to.

Cosby, who was also deemed by the court to be a "sexually violent predator" and fined $25,000 (as well as various court costs), plans to appeal.

Several of Cosby's accusers attended the proceedings this week in a Pennsylvania courthouse but did not testify during the retrial.

Though his three charges each carry a maximum possible sentence of 10 years, O'Neill said they were merged into one because they're from the same incident. Prosecutors in the Cosby case originally wanted 19 women to testify, but an appeals court could have seen that as too many.

'I'm sure there will be guys protecting him but they're gonna have to put him in protective custody ... because it takes one nut, ya know?' The $400 million prison opened two months ago.

Constand went to police a year after waking up in a fog at Cosby's estate, her clothes askew, only to have the district attorney pass on the case. But in April, Cosby was convicted of three counts of aggravated indecent assault for drugging and assaulting Constand in the first high-profile celebrity criminal trial of the #MeToo era.

Five other accusers took the stand at the trial as part of an effort by prosecutors to portray Cosby - once known as America's Dad for his role on the top-rated "Cosby Show" in the 1980s - as a serial predator.

Sixty women have accused Cosby of sexual abuse.
