On Tuesday, Judge Steven O'Neill handed down the sentence and denied a request for bail by Cosby's lawyers.
According to Wyatt, the "sexist and racist" mass media did not allow Cosby's record as "one of the greatest civil rights leaders in the United States for over the last 50 years" to be brought up in court. However, it also houses a general prison population and has programs for sex offenders which Cosby would have to enter as he has been labeled a "sexually violent predator".
Simpson says Cosby has another thing coming his way in prison unless he is placed in protective custody.
His fate at a new facility remains to be seen but at SCI Phoenix Cosby spent his first night in his own cell without a cellmate. The time has come, ' O'Neill said in sentencing him.
SCI Phoenix will not be the 81-year-old's permanent home. His wife, Camille Cosby, was not present.
