Bill Cosby Transferred To Maximum Security Prison

Bill Cosby has been transferred to a maximum security prison at the Pennsylvania State Correctional Institution Phoenix in Schwenksville, PA. On Tuesday, Cosby was sentenced to three to 10-years behind bars  for drugging and sexually assaulting a woman over a decade ago.

TMZ reports,

It’s significant … prison is a maximum security facility, meaning it houses some of the most violent offenders in the state. The prison is fairly new and has 3,830 beds.

The judge deemed Cosby a “sexually violent predator” … which apparently was the trigger for the choice of prison. 

Cosby will be housed in a single cell next to the infirmary … possibly because of his medical problems. He’s allowed phone calls and visitation consistent with prison policies.  

A prison official says, “We are taking all of the necessary precautions to ensure Mr. Cosby’s safety and general welfare in our institution.” The official says the long-term goal is for Cosby to go into the general population.
