Bill Cosby: A Look at His Life Behind Bars

by at .

Bill Cosby is a convicted rapist and a ward of Pennsylvania.

The disgraced comedian was found guilty in April 2018 of drugging and assaulting a woman named Andrea Constand and then sentenced to three to 10 years behind bars in September of 2018.

"Nobody is above the law because of where they live, who they are, wealth, fame, celebrity or even philanthropy," said the judge said during Cosby's hearing while delivering Cosby's sentence.

"Any lesser sentence would take away from the seriousness of the crime," he added.

Overall, Cosby has been accused of rape by over 60 women.

He deserves to be behind bars -- and we have a look below for you at exactly what life is like for him there.
