NO ESCAPE

Cosby Placed on House Arrest Until Sentencing

A judge ordered that Bill Cosby be placed on house arrest until he is sentenced on sexual-assault charges. The 80-year-old disgraced comedian was found guilty on three counts of aggravated assault and could face up to 30 years in prison for drugging and sexually assaulting former basketball player Andrea Constand. Cosby was also ordered to wear a GPS monitoring device, and can only leave his Philadelphia home for medical treatments or attorney meetings. The man’s publicists compared their client's conviction to a "public day lynching," and criticized the #MeToo movement during an appearance on Good Morning America Friday morning. Since his conviction, five colleges have rescinded the actor's honorary degrees. “Truth prevails,” Constand tweeted a day after the verdict came down.
