Bill Cosby seen looking disheveled in new mugshot
The prison says it is normal for them to update an inmate’s photo
Bill Cosby’s newest mugshot was released and despite all of the accusations thrown his way, he managed to crack a smile.
According to TMZ, the prison says it is normal for them to update an inmate’s photo if their appearance has changed. Cosby was sentenced in September 2018 and is set to serve three to 10 years in prison.
The disgraced 83-year-old entertainer is being held at the State Correctional Institution – Phoenix in Pennsylvania for aggravated indecent assault against former basketball player Andrea Constand in his home in 2004.
Constand says she saw Cosby as a mentor. She is the former Director of Operations of the women’s basketball team at Temple University, where Cosby received an Honorary Doctorate. But the night she entered his home in 2004 changed both of their lives.
Constand said she had no qualms about trusting the actor because of his status, but when she entered the room she says he offered her three blue bills to help her relax. After she took them she says she fell in and out of consciousness as he molested her.
“My thoughts were that he was a well-respected Temple advocate and trustee,” she said in court per the Miami Herald. “He was also a community leader … and that made him a very well-respected person at Temple, and I was grateful for (him) helping me in any way that he did.”
Back in November of 2019, Cosby did his first prison interview and at the time he had no remorse.
“I have eight years and nine months left,” said Cosby in an exclusive interview with Black Press USA . “When I come up for parole, they’re not going to hear me say that I have remorse. I was there. I don’t care what group of people come along and talk about this when they weren’t there. They don’t know.”
He also told the outlet, “I am a privileged man in prison.”
