Disgraced comedian Bill Cosby has been sentenced to jail

'America's dad' dubbed 'sexually violent predator' by the presiding Judge.

Former TV star, Bill Cosby was sentenced to three to ten years in state prison on Tuesday, 25th of September, for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his Philadelphia home 14 years ago.

Cosby was led directly to prison in handcuffs after Judge Steven O'Neill denied his request for bail.

O'Neill also designated the 81-year-old funnyman--dubbed "America's dad" by The New York Times--a "sexually violent predator," which means he'll have to undergo monthly counselling and register as a sex offender in Pennsylvania for the rest of his life.

More than 60 women have come forward and accused Cosby of sexual misconduct, going back decades.

It is reported that his lawyers are intending to appeal his convictions.
