Bill Cosby sentenced to prison for sexually assaulting a woman

Embattled US television icon Bill Cosby was sentenced to three to 10 years in prison by a judge and branded a “sexually violent predator” for assaulting a woman at his Philadelphia mansion 14 years ago.

The 81-year-old, once known as “America’s Dad,” is the first celebrity convicted and sentenced for a sex crime since the downfall of Harvey Weinstein ushered in the #MeToo movement and America’s reckoning with sexual harassment.
