Bill Cosby Finally Getting What He Deserves
The popular comedian Bill Cosby who was once dubbed as ‘America’s Dad’ was charged with numerous sexual assault cases. But now, many of his victims can finally breathe freely since justice has prevailed. A Pennsylvania judge has ruled Bill Cosby as a violent sexual predator. And very soon, the sentence for the former actor will be announced. Moreover, Bill Cosby will have to undergo counseling for the rest of his life. And also, his name will appear on the sex offenders’ registry. It seems like the time for sexual assault victims is going really well.
Bill Cosby was accused of molesting a woman at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. And the case had been forwarded into a justice court under Montgomery County Judge Steven T. O’Neill. The judge not just declared the entertainer as a sexually violent predator. But also announced that he had prepared extensively to give out the sentence and that the court will meet again on Tuesday to impose the punishment. The designation of predator allotted to Bill Cosby by the court implies that he is now subject to lifetime reporting requirements. And he will also have to inform law enforcement agencies as to where he is residing.
Bill Cosby refused the opportunity to address the judge. However, District Attorney Kevin Steele advised the judge to impose at least 5 to 10 years in state prison. He also asked him to overrule defense arguments stating that Bill Cosby should be allowed house arrest. But the defense attorney has rejected these contentions saying that Cosby is not dangerous. Moreover, his lawyer attempted to play the 81 year old blind man card saying he recalled no instance of such a man being sent to state prison.
Dozens of women who accused Cosby of assaulting them attended the court hearings. In fact, Bill Cosby becomes the first celebrity from the #MeToo movement to be actually punished for his actions. The world is finally favoring women!
