Cosby is now in the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections' Phoenix location, in Collegeville, Pa.

"The long-term goal is for him to be placed in the general population to receive the programming required during his incarceration", Corrections Secretary John Wetzel told

The deposition, in which Cosby acknowledged giving sedatives to young women, was unsealed a decade later, and prosecutors cited it as a crucial piece of evidence when they brought criminal charges. The facility also has a gym, barber shop, mural arts program and non-denominational chapel.

Ms Constand, 45, said in a written statement submitted to the court on Monday that the attack had turned her into a woman who was "stuck in a holding pattern for most of her adult life, unable to heal fully or to move forward". Cosby is receiving this sentence as he drugged and sexually assaulted a woman a decade back. "If that's what they've got, it's beyond a Hail Mary".
