Cosby was immediately taken into custody Tuesday after a Montgomery County judge handed down a three-to-10-year prison sentence in state prison for the 2004 sexual assault of Andrea Constand. More than two dozen inmates told The Inquirer and Daily News some of their personal effects were vandalized and ruined when they were transferred over to the $400 million facility.

"No one is above the law".

"They took my cane, tie and shoelaces because they think I will harm myself", he reportedly said.

Second Kavanaugh accuser says she would testify at Senate hearing
There were also lingering questions about whether Deborah Ramirez , Kavanaugh's second accuser, would testify. He also accused Judge Kavanaugh of misleading senators in previous hearings.

"Bill Cosby seeing the inside of a prison cell sends a strong message that predators - no matter who they are, from Hollywood to Wall Street to the Supreme Court - can no longer be protected at the expense of victims", said Sonia Ossorio, president of the National Organization for Women of NY.

Wyatt also characterized the trial as "the most racist and sexist trial in the history of the United States" and said the media had not allowed Cosby to be portrayed as "one of the greatest civil rights leaders in the United States for over the past 50 years". Cosby is receiving this sentence as he drugged and sexually assaulted a woman a decade back.

Cosby's first mugshot was released hours after the trial hearing concluded and showed the comedian still wearing the suit he wore to court. A 50-year-old inmate often has a "physiological age" 10 to 15 years older, the Osborn Association says.

Bill Cosby spent his first night behind bars at a new, state-of-the-art, maximum security prison in suburban Philadelphia.

Women's advocates hailed Cosby's sentence as a landmark #MeToo moment. He also feels that the highly publicized nature of Cosby's crimes and allegations will make him an easy target for other prisoners. The real sex war is the one that women are struggling to wage against the powerful men who abuse them, and the systems and culture in place that place more importance on a man's reputation and future than on that of their victims.

In her testimony, Constand revealed how Cosby gave her pills that left her feeling "frozen" and unable to stop the sexual assault.
