Bill Cosby will serve jail time for his sexual assault conviction, a judge ruled on Tuesday.
The Associated Press reports that on Tuesday, Montgomery County Judge Steven O’Neill said at Cosby’s sentencing hearing that the stand-up comic and former TV sitcom star will go to prison, saying that he refuses to sentence Cosby to “partial confinement” or probation.
As of mid-afternoon on Tuesday, the judge had not said explicitly how long a sentence Cosby would have to serve.
According to TMZ, Judge O’Neill said earlier in the sentencing hearing that Cosby would be classified as a “violent sexual predator.” His name will appear on sex offender registries and he will be required to undergo counseling for the rest of his life.
This is a developing story. CrimeOnline will provide further updates when more information is available.
