Bill Cosby has gone from “America’s Dad” to inmate No. NN7687. On Tuesday night, the 81-year-old arrived to Pennsylvania’s State Correctional Institute at Phoenix. It is located in Collegeville, 30 miles northwest of Philadelphia. He will be housed there until he is transferred to state prison.
Cosby is facing three to 10 years in prison after being convicted of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004. A spokesperson for the maximum security prison told CNN that he was “in good spirits” when he arrived.
“The ultimate goal would be to integrate him into general population,” spokeswoman Amy Wordon told The New York Post. “He’ll be there on an entry basis as we determine what programs he’s eligible for.”
The facility has 3,830 beds. Every inmate is given a uniform, toiletries, linens, towels and boots, CNN reports. He is being confined in a single 9 X 12 foot cell close to the infirmary.
Every day at 6 a.m., Cosby is expected to stand and be counted, along with the rest of the population. Breakfast begins at 7 a.m., lunch is served at 11 a.m. and dinner is dished at 5 p.m. He will be allowed phone calls and visitation and an opportunity to exercise. If desired, he can earn money doing laundry, or work in the shoe factory.
The puddin’ pop spokesman can also take classes in custodial maintenance, carpentry, restaurant services and warehouse operations. He will be required to attend sex-offender treatment.
