Photos have emerged of inside prison where Bill Cosby is expected to spend the next 3 to 10 years of his life.
The 81-year-old Cosby will serve his sentence in a new $400million Pennsylvania state prison. The prison is brand new, and said to be state of the art.
The comedian was sentenced on Tuesday for drugging and molesting Andrea Constand, a former Temple University women’s basketball administrator, in 2004.
SCI Phoenix is a maximum security, 3,830-bed, handicap-accessible, state-of-the-art prison which began operating earlier this year. The $400million prison is staffed by 1,200 full-time employees and features 164 acreage inside its double ring of razor wire fences and a 1.5mile perimeter.
The cells have bunk beds and storage lockers, as well as a stainless steel toilet and sink combo and a small desk and stool. Unlike older prisons, SCI Phoenix’s manual key locks have been replaced with electronic cell doors monitored from a central location.
Immediately after his sentencing, Cosby was escorted from the courthouse and into a dark SUV before being taken to the Montgomery County Correctional Facility.
