Comedian Bill Cosby was denied his petition for parole earlier this month after refusing to complete a treatment program for sex offenders.
“The Cosby Show” patriarch was accused by at least 33 women of sexual assault, child sex abuse, and rape that spanned from 1965 to 2008. When Hannibal Buress’s comedy set describing Cosby’s sexual misdeeds went viral in late 2014, eight civil suits were filed against him by alleged victims whose assaults were too old to prosecute criminally.
The former Jell-O spokesman was found guilty on three counts of aggravated indecent assault against a single female victim and was sentenced to three to ten years in prison on Sept. 25, 2018.
The 83-year-old has resided in SCI-Phoenix for more than two years, and had an opportunity to get an early release on May 11, but failed to meet the requirements that warranted whittling down his sentence.
The Pennsylvania parole board rejected his bid because Cosby neglected to “develop a parole release plan,” and was given a “negative recommendation made by the department of corrections.”
The recommendation was likely based on the fact that he refused to attend therapy for violent sexual predators. “It was brought to our attention by Mr. Cosby that over the past months, members of the PA State Parole Board had met with him and emphatically stated, ‘if he did not participate in SVP [Sexual Violate Predator] courses that his parole would be denied,’” a memo said.
Cosby’s spokesperson Andrew Wyatt was not surprised by the board’s decision. “We knew he was going to be rejected. He called me and told me that if he didn’t take the course, he would be denied,” he remarked.
In order to be considered for parole in the future, Cosby will have had to “successfully participated in/successfully completed a treatment program for sex offenders and violence prevention,” and get a “favorable recommendation for parole from the department of corrections.”
violent sexual crimes should be a death penalty case… period … there is no excuse …
I guess he will die in prison. He won’t admit to doing anything wrong by going to the treatment. That’s why he hasn’t done it to this point in time. He Is guilty as sin and Won’t admit it
This just tell me a Black man should not try to by NBC or they will end up in jail.
you do know thats stupid its time the blackman who thought he could own others needs to pay
It just goes to show if you do the crime you do the time whether you admit to what you did or not unless you have more money than Bill like as in OJ rich! Just because of your skin color doesn’t mean you get off free when you commit crimes!
Jello pudding pops were disgusting.
No one is against the law. He should be punished and kept in jail.
Do these courses work, it seems like quite a few paroles end up doing sexual assaults in the future even if it takes a few years. Let’s face it, our gov’t wastes a lot of taxpayer money on “courses” meant to reform sexual offenders. Even tracers don’t seem to work as children seem to come to pedophiles accidently. Put him on a sex list for neighbors so them can check on him and send him home. It was grown women he raped after drugging and any woman with enough sense should not have gone alone to his hotel room or whatever room any ways. Take a boyfriend or another girl with you. And for the number he raped he should have gotten life and the courts didn’t give him life so why keep paying for him in jail if the courts don’t worry or care about him.
So all the Jewish sexual predators except Weinstein are walking around free while the black guy does time.
“The Cosby Show” patriarch was accused by at least 33 women of sexual assault, child sex abuse, and rape that spanned from 1965 to 2008.”
Bill Clinton has been accused of sexual assaults by at least 28 women, pedophilia with close friend Jeffery Epstein on the Lolita Express and at Pleasure (Pedophile) Island that has spanned from 1969 to present. Cosby – Black – goes to prison. Clinton – White – enjoys taxpayer paid – Secret Service protection – the Lifestyle of the rich and famous – and is a hero to the left. But Democrats are NOT racist.
Maybe it’s Cosby – politically incorrect advocate for black family unity – goes to prison. Clinton – politically connected Democrat – enjoys taxpayer paid … and is a hero to the Left.
If it were just because Cosby is black, Mad Max would also be in prison – for inciting to riot, calling for violence against elected officials, etc.
I will probably offend many of you. I grew up with Fat Albert’s cartoons where he stopped bullying. Then, there was Bill Cosby as the Jell-O guy, Dr Huxable and his comedy events. I don’t believe that Bill Cosby is guilty of sexual charges. He is not going to be bullied into admitting to being guilty; because, he is innocent.
Theresa, I don’t know the case, so I couldn’t say. But I’m not sure I’d agree to take a sexual violence course if I were innocent. And he has a history of advocating for black families and black morality for years and upsetting the politically correct in the process. That, plus his comedy, which, unlike most comedy today, was actually funny, and which, as you say, was against bullying and for family, makes it hard for me to think of him as a sex offender.
I guess this proves he just isn’t that smart. He thinks he knows best, well enjoy your present surroundings Pal, you’ll be there until the next parole hearing.
