Bill Cosby finally received his sentence on Tuesday in a Pennsylvania courtroom.
The judge deemed Cosby a “sexually violent predator” by a judge before sentencing the 81-year-old fallen star to three to ten years in prison.
“I’m not permitted to treat him any differently based on who he is or who he was,” the judge said. “As she [Constand] said, Mr. Cosby, you took her beautiful, healthy young spirit and crushed it.”
Constand accused Cosby of raping her in 2004 when she was working with Cosby at Temple University’s athletic department. She was among the more than 60 women have come forward with accusations, most of whom cited Cosby’s use of the sedative Quaaludes to overpower them.

Cosby did not take the stand during his 13-day trial. He will be able to appeal his sentence. But for now, there is some justice for many of his victims.
