Bill Cosby's First Prison Meal Feeds Twitter Tons of Jell-O Jokes

Bill Cosby's First Prison Meal Feeds Twitter Tons of Jell-O Jokes

According to reports, Bill Cosby sat in a single cell alone last night, following his sentence of 3-10 years for sexual assault. Under prison policy, the 81-year-old comedian will be allowed phone calls and visits and will get a chance to exercise.

Prison officials intend to integrate Cosby into the general population after they assess his needs. 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.

When the prison opened in June, Secretary of Corrections John Wetzel described it as a "21st century institution with advanced security features, environmentally efficient infrastructure and modern work and housing spaces".

Calling Cosby "one of the greatest civil rights leaders in the United States for over the past 50 years", spokesman Andrew Wyatt on Tuesday decried the trial as the "most sexist and racist" in the country's history.

On how Cosby is doing: "Mr. Cosby knows that God is watching over him".

Cosby is the first and only celebrity during the #MeToo era to be jailed after dozens of top celebrities were named by accusers who said they were sexually assaulted.

Bill Cosby's wife Camille has accused prosecutors of using falsified evidence to convict her husband following his sentencing on Tuesday. Wyatt said all three of the psychologists who testified against Cosby were "white women who make money off of accusing black men of being sexual predators".

Constand stood at Steele's side but shook her head to say she had no comment.

After the sentencing, Cosby was led out of the courtroom in handcuffs before he was taken to prison.

Cosby's legal team; however, argued that he should be sent home on house arrest because he is old, frail and legally blind.

If Cosby serves the 10-year sentence, he will be 91 when he's released.

Cosby will occupy one of the facility's 3,830 beds. The former Cosby Show actor will also have access to a barber shop and a gym.

Cosby for decades was a pitchman for Jell-O for its commercials. 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.
