Bill Cosby: What’s next for him — in prison, in court and beyond – CNN
(CNN) Bill Cosby, the former beloved TV dad and one of the most recognizable entertainers in America, woke up Wednesday in his new home: an 7-by-13 foot cell with a narrow cot and a metal toilet.
It was his first day of what will be a lengthy stay in a Pennsylvania state prison. But the 81-year-old’s legal challenges are far from over. How long will he remain behind bars? What will that stay be like? And what about his potential appeals, or the civil defamation lawsuits against him? Here are six things we know about Cosby’s immediate future — in prison, in the courtroom and in American pop culture. He’s getting new boots, and chocolate pudding Read More Cosby arrived Tuesday night to Pennsylvania’s State Correctional Institute at Phoenix. The prison in Collegeville is about 30 miles northwest of Philadelphia and not far from the Montgomery County courthouse where he was convicted. Cosby got one of the SCI Phoenix facility’s 3,830 beds to start serving his sentence. The Department of Corrections said he was also given a few basics, including a uniform, toiletries, linens, towels and state-issued boots. A cell at SCI Phoenix state prison. He is being housed in a single cell — 7 by 13 feet — in a unit adjacent to the infirmary, the prison said. He will be allowed phone calls and visitation in accordance with policy, as well as the opportunity to exercise as he goes through an evaluation process. “We are taking all of the necessary precautions to ensure Mr. Cosby’s safety and general welfare in our institution,” said Corrections Secretary John Wetzel. “The long-term goal is for him to be placed in the general population to receive the programming required during his incarceration.” What Bill Cosby will be eating behind bars Cosby’s first prison meal at SCI Phoenix was baked meatballs and rice, green beans, mashed potatoes and gravy, said Lisa Durand, spokeswoman for SCI Phoenix. Lunch on Thursday included a half-cup of gelatin, like the Jell-O dessert Cosby once hawked in TV ads. Saturday’s menu has chocolate pudding. The prison will accommodate his age and health issues Cosby’s attorneys had asked the judge to sentence him to house arrest because they said prison would be tough for Cosby, who is elderly, legally blind and famous. Worden said that new inmates go through an evaluation process to determine which prison in the state system is best suited for them. They evaluate the inmate’s needs, programs and health issues in deciding where to house them, she said. That could mean Cosby remains at SCI Phoenix or is moved to another of the state’s prisons. Bill Cosby’s mugshot, taken at Montgomery County Correctional Facility on Tuesday, September 25. Amy Worden, press secretary for the state Department of Corrections, said the Pennsylvania prison system has geriatric inmates, and most of their prisons, including SCI Phoenix, are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. There are also varying degrees of medical facilities across the system. “The Department of Corrections has had high-profile inmates before, and I’m sure we’ll have them again, so it’s not that much out of the ordinary. He’ll be treated like other inmates,” Worden said. As part of Cosby’s sentence, he was determined to be a “sexually violent predator,” a designation that requires him to take sex offender counseling at least once a month. In SCI Phoenix, he will find programs on that topic. Cosby spokesperson Andrew Wyatt said Cosby’s family is hoping that SCI Phoenix will be his final prison location, as the facility is new and he can be comfortable there, away from the general population. The prison is also only a 30- to 45-minute drive from Montgomery County, where Cosby has a home. He could be released in three years Cosby entered the prison Tuesday to begin a sentence that will last at least three years and no more than 10 years. He was found guilty of three counts of aggravated indecent assault, each of which carries a maximum of 10 years in prison. But Montgomery County court Judge Steven O’Neill announced Monday that the charges had been merged into one because they all stem from the same event. O’Neill sentenced Cosby to three to 10 years because, he said, “No one is above the law, and no one should be treated differently or disproportionally.” “This was a serious crime,” O’Neill added. “Mr. Cosby, this has all circled back to you. The day has come, the time has come.” What is a sexually violent predator? After three years, Cosby will be eligible to appear before a parole board and make his case to be paroled. At that point, he could be released from prison and allowed to serve out the rest of his 10-year sentence under supervision in the community, said the Pennsylvania Board of Probation and Parole . “Parole is a privilege, not a right; it is not automatic or guaranteed. It may be revoked for violations of the conditions of parole or for new criminal convictions,” the board writes. Cosby was also ordered to pay a fine of $25,000 plus the costs of prosecution — a total of $43,611 — as part of the sentence. He intends to appeal Cosby’s attorneys have repeatedly said they plan to file an appeal in the criminal case. “A second opinion isn’t unreasonable, and as you know he intends to seek one,” attorney Joseph P. Green said. They have 10 days from the sentencing to file a notice of appeal. It’s not clear what specific issues Cosby would challenge, but there are several possible focal points based on their previous criticisms. One issue is the possible bias of Judge O’Neill. A defense motion earlier this month argued that O’Neill had a “nasty” personal conflict against the prior district attorney Bruce Castor. The issue is important because in 2016, Castor testified there was a binding agreement that Cosby could not be prosecuted, but O’Neill disagreed, ruling the case could go forward. Bill Cosby was sentenced to 3 to 10 years in state prison on Tuesday. O’Neill denied the defense’s motion to recuse himself, saying it was not filed in a timely fashion and had no merit. “This Court is confident that it has and can continue to assess this case in an impartial manner, free of personal bias or interest in the outcome,” O’Neill wrote in the order. Another possible line of appeal is O’Neill’s decision regarding ” prior bad acts ” witnesses to testify at trial. Although the assault charges only dealt with Constand, O’Neill allowed five other women to testify that Cosby had incapacitated and assaulted them in prior incidents. Prosecutors said these witnesses showed that Cosby had a common pattern or scheme in his assault of Constand. But Cosby’s representatives said that O’Neill’s decision to allow their testimony unfairly prejudiced the jury. Finally, Cosby spokeswoman Ebonee Benson read aloud a statement from Cosby’s wife Camille that challenged the legitimacy of a recorded phone call between Constand’s mother and Cosby. Benson alleged that an audio analysis showed the recording had been doctored. Cosby’s defense team will be filing a motion “seeking immediate relief for the prosecution’s use of this falsified evidence,” Benson said. “The DA’s use of this falsified audio clip at trial is deeply prejudicial, yet it represents just one of many issues that resulted in the denial of Mr. Cosby’s right to a fair trial.” He still faces several civil lawsuits Because of statute of limitations laws, the vast majority of assault accusations against Cosby could not be prosecuted in criminal court. Still, several women have sued him in civil court. Three are defamation cases in which accusers say Cosby defamed them as liars, and two are civil assault lawsuits. The most prominent was brought by Tamara Green in federal court in Massachusetts. Green, who says Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her in 1970, filed a suit in December 2014. She accuses Cosby and his team of lawyers and representatives of defaming her and calling her a liar for speaking out about the alleged assault.

But it ended in a mistrial after a jury was unable to come to a unanimous decision. Constand was the first of more than 50 women who have accused Cosby of sexual misconduct. Cosby has denied wrongdoing. Hide Caption 17 of 18 Photos: Bill Cosby: Evolution of an icon The jury in Cosby’s retrial found the TV icon guilty on all three counts in April.

Attorney Joseph Cammarata said the case was stayed, or put on hold, until the conclusion of Cosby’s criminal case. Now that Cosby has been sentenced, Cammarata told CNN that he’s now in a position to lift that stay and move forward with the case. One other defamation suit, filed by Katherine McKee, was dismissed by a federal judge in February. She has said she plans to appeal the decision. Finally, Cosby faces at least two open civil assault lawsuits. Judy Huth, who says Cosby sexually assaulted her at the Playboy Mansion when she was 15, sued in December 2014. Chloe Goins sued in May 2016. “Based on experience in civil suits filed against inmates in our custody, most of the proceedings are done through video conferencing,” said Worden, the Department of Corrections spokeswoman. And his legacy is forever tarnished Cosby’s groundbreaking entertainment career, including his roles on “I Spy” and “The Cosby Show,” has largely been erased from the public eye in the past few years. Re-runs of “The Cosby Show,” long a staple of cable TV, were taken off the airwaves as the accusations piled up, and now are only available on Amazon Prime TV. This is the cultural dilemma of Bill Cosby’s fall Universities that granted him honorary degrees have rescinded them, including Notre Dame and Yale . Temple University, where Cosby sat on the Board of Trustees for 32 years until his resignation in 2014, rescinded his honorary degree after his conviction. In a column for CNN, film critic Gene Seymour wrote that Cosby’s conviction in April was a final blow to the battered reputation of an American icon. “One of the most ecumenically beloved entertainers of the last century will be known for the rest of his life as a sexual predator,” he wrote. “And for many of us it may take the rest of our lives to unpack the ramifications.” So how does Cosby feel? The entertainer toured as recently as 2015 and said in a TV interview before his 2017 mistrial that he would like to eventually return to doing comedy. “I want to get back to the laughter and enjoyment of things that I’ve written and things that I perform on stage,” he said. “I know the side that I’m on and the side that I’m hoping for, and after that, there’s more work to be done,” he added. “But I still feel that I have an awful lot to offer in terms of my writing, in terms of my performance.”
Zombie princess costume from Middletons causes outrage [Video]
Bloody zombie princess costume sold by Kate Middleton’s family sparks outrage Heather Gardner Video Producer, Yahoo Entertainment October 1, 2018 There seems to always be some sort of royal scandal going on across the pond, although the tabloid stories have calmed down quite a bit since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding.
Well, a new storm has hit the royals in the form of a Halloween controversy.
Kate Middleton’s family owns a lucrative event planning business called Party Pieces. As we head into the season of ghouls and goblins, Party Pieces’ website stocked up on hundreds of costumes for adults and children, including several zombie-inspired outfits.
However, people thought the addition of a zombie princess costume — complete with a blood-covered gown and a tiara — was highly insensitive, considering that Princess Diana died in a horrific car crash in 1997.
The zombie princess costume appeared on the Party Pieces website but was removed after the backlash. More Simone Simmons, a friend of Diana, told the Daily Star the costume was “sicker than sick. I hope people boycott the site. This is really scraping the barrel. It’s twisted and warped.”
While some agreed that the Middletons’ zombie princess costume was inconsiderate to the royal family, others think the controversy has been blown out of proportion.
The Middletons have not commented on the costume; however, the Party Pieces website has removed the child’s zombie princess outfit.
I see no controversy here, it is just a zombie princess costume and it never occurred to me to think of Princess Diana. It has nothing to do with her. What a stretch & so ridiculous. Slow news day mate?

Oh for Heaven’s sake.There are loads of kids outfits with various characters covered in blood.Offended for the sake of it!
— Steve Proud (@Proudie_Arsenal) October 1, 2018
Shame on you Mirror for adding Diana’s name to this costume…it doesn’t look like anyone I have ever seen!Mirror Online https://t.co/060vZmfcaN
— Elizabeth (@xamberangel) October 1, 2018
Give it a rest. It doesn’t resemble Diana in any way. She looks like a zombie in the picture
— MadelineLCarpentiere (@MLCarpentiere) October 1, 2018
At no time does say that it’s Diana, you who’s saying,on other sites sells zombie princess costumes,It’s on halloween,this is normal,the problem is that you from the media always implicate the kate family, from the beginning they never accepted it.this matter is ridiculous…
— kate e wills ❣ (@kateandwillian) October 1, 2018
Really?! I mean, come on, this is grasping at straws. A zombie princess has been a popular kids costume for years. The media will find any reason to attack the Middleton’s.

25 Things Wrong With Boruto Everyone Chooses To Ignore – Screen Rant
20 Crazy Details Behind The Making Of Captain America: The Winter Soldier 18 Team 10’s Leadership
The teaming up of Nara, Akimichi, and Yamanaka children is a classic shinobi combination. For generations, various heirs have paired up like this to create powerful teams. After all, together they build the powerful Ino-Shika-Cho Formation.
Another element to this team is that they are commonly lead by a member of the Sarutobi Clan to cement their bond. Consequently, the last trio was led by Asuma Sarutobi and was dubbed Team 10. However, Boruto ‘s Team 10 is led by Moegi, a ninja with no connections to the Sarutobi clan. Instead, their leader should have been Konohamaru or Mirai, both strong shinobi and members of the Sarutobi clan. 17 Lack of Post-Ninja Careers
Boruto is set long after the Fourth Shinobi War, in a time of prolonged peace. Because of this, ninja have fallen out of favor and less are needed. Therefore, some of the older shinobi now have interest in finding non-ninja careers. There are complaints of there being a scarcity, however.
While it’s an understandable plight for the older shinobi, this doesn’t make sense in the world of Naruto . During the previous series, there were cooking-nin in the Land of Lightning and other similar occupations on display. It may require some travel, but there are certaintly jobs out there for non-combat ninja. Ino is a florist now, after all. 16 Sasuke and Sakura’s Marriage advertising
Sakura pined after Sasuke for the entirety of Naruto . However, Sasuke showed little interest in her romantically. At best, she was a friend who annoyed him. Sometime between Naruto and Boruto , though, they marry and have a daughter.
Despite showing no previous interest, Sakura and Sasuke are an illogical match.
Sasuke is very private, prefers not to be touched, and stays away for long missions. Sakura prefers affection, is constantly saddened by his absence, and it fairly open with her emotions. Their personalities don’t match up well and it’s bizarre the pair would end up a “happy” couple. 15 Mitsuki’s Immeasurable Potential
Mitsuki is a very unique character, as he’s the artificially created son of Orochimaru. From Orochimaru’s genes alone, Mitsuki is understandably powerful. However, there’s an element that makes him even more complex: his conception.
Artificial humans haven’t existed before in this world. The shinobi have no clue if this will effect his powers. In theory, Mitsuki could be even more powerful because of the precision in his genetics. He could have more potential than any other shinobi has even had before. While that’s wild enough, it’s even wilder how no one seems as concerned or fascinated by his unknown, immeasurable potential. 14 Technological Development
During Naruto , technology is akin to the tech of the early 1900’s with some odd tapes and other advances mixed in. However, 15 years later, by Boruto , the technology has rapidly evolved to the point it is far more akin to the modern technology of the early 2000s’s, with sleek computers, phones, video games, etc.
Though peace can create rapid growth, it seems quite extreme that what took about 75 years for first world countries took only 15 years in Naruto . Either Naruto should have been a little further along in tech, or Boruto should be a bit further back. Maybe huge computers and block phones, not sleek, newer tech. 13 Kabuto Running the Orphanage
Kabuto was one of the most aggressive of Orochimaru’s minions during the time of Naruto . He faithfully protected, resurrected, and destroyed for his master. He single-handedly caused a lot of pain for Konoha.
Kabuto had a change of heart during the final battles of Naruto, wanting to help save the world, not destroy it, but that hardly makes him a good person.
By Boruto , though, he’s the leader of orphanage. Giving a twisted follower of a mad scientist agency over tons of young minds seems irresponsible and dangerous, particularly with all the Shin Uchiha clones there now. 12 Boruto Agreeing To Team 7 advertising
Team 7 was the iconic trio of Sakura, Sasuke, and Naruto in the original series. When Boruto graduates Ninja Academy, he, Sarada, and Mitsuki are grouped together into a team. They were initially called Team 3, but after Sarada became wildly impressed with Naruto, she asked they be renamed Team 7. Her request was granted.
However, there’s a serious snag in reviving the name: Boruto. While Boruto learned to work well with Sarada and respect her, he still has serious issues with his father and hates the idea of following in his footsteps. For him to agree to Team 7 is a complete breach of character. 11 Sasuke’s Absentee Relationship With Sarada
Sasuke’s relationship with Sarada is strained and distant, at best. However, it doesn’t make sense for it to be. For starters, Sasuke is the best person to teach her about her genetic powers. After all, he’s the only other Uchiha. He should be caring for his only heir much more closely for that reason alone.
Beyond that, though, he knows losing his parents, his troubled relationship with his brother, and the Uchiha Curse of Hatred led him down a dark path. To do better for Sarada, he should give her a doting father and lots of support to guide her away from hatred. 10 The Emergence of The Otsutsuki Clan
When Kaguya came to earth, it was already mentioned she wasn’t the only one of her kind. However, it seemed she was the first to get distracted by love and, later, ultimately fail in her mission. It’s understandable when Momoshiki, Kinshiki, and Urushiki come to the planet. The problem lies more in when they came.
Thematically, if Kaguya was the final enemy large enemy, it’s insane to make her clansmen early villains in Boruto’s lore.
Though it gave Sasuke and Naruto a challenge, it was a ridiculous feat for the genin main characters. The Otsutsuki clan should have appeared later to be villains for the younger cast. 9 So Many Ninja Housewives
Naruto showed us the strength of both male and female ninja in its many trials, battles, and wars. It gave fans the first female Hokage in Tsunade, the secretly powerful Hinata, intimidating villains like Konan, and more. However, by the time Boruto rolls around, most all of the remaining female cast are relegated to housewives.
While it makes sense for Ino to want to run her family flower shop, or Hinata to want to be close to her kids, some don’t fit the role well. For example, Sakura is far more likely to have wanted to do something else with her time, perhaps as a village medic-nin. Instead, even she’s a housewife. 8 Denki advertising
When Boruto began, fans were introduced to the title characters closest friends. This included Shikadai and soon after, Denki. Unlike Shikadai, though, Denki is a terrible ninja and Boruto has to save him from bullies.
This seems like it might be setting up Denki for a growth arc, but instead he just always seems several steps behind everyone.
Also, Denki is prone to getting his friends into trouble because of his clumsiness, low confidence, and more. Even more, his skills in computers is barely used. Though it was a nice idea to have a kid who didn’t want to be a ninja at all, it’s disappointing his growth is so miniscule. 7 Karin Keeping Sarada’s Umbilical Cord
When Sarada was born, Karin assisted Sakura in labor. After that, though, Karin kept Sarada’s umbilical cord. It’s a very strange decision already, but her reason for doing it is even stranger. She didn’t keep it to remember helping Sakura birth life, but to have a momento of Sasuke’s. A momento that is the epitome of his relationship with someone else that isn’t her.
Karin can be misguided and creepy at times, but this perhaps takes the cake for craziest thing she’s done. She has no use for the cord and it’s disturbing to put romantic sentimentality into it. 6 Children Fighting Gang Members and Bandits
In Naruto , some of the teachers make questionable decisions by continuing fights with surprise enemies that may be too difficult for their ninja students. Boruto tries to bypass this by having rules for these situations. Students can only engage in combat with a teacher around.
However, that’s nearly worse. Now, students are actively seeking trouble with gangs and bandits. And with the permission to fight them with instructors, of course headstrong shinobi like Boruto go out fighting without that supervision. Though a nice sentiment with better planning to fight with the kids, the random encounters made more sense and encouraged genin to pursue dangerous battles less. 5 Boruto’s Low Levels of Character Development
As the main character of the series, Boruto has a surprisingly low amount of character development. In Naruto , the title character had a long way to go. He was rebellious but lonely, talented but erratic, courageous but headstrong. Boruto, on the other hand, has far less internal conflicts. He’s rebellious but has tons of friends.
He’s talented, focused, and strong. His courage is strong, but he also has a level head in a fight.
Many of Boruto’s conflicts are not internal, but external. They can often only be dealt with in time or rely on others to change, too. This makes his growth inherently less noticeable and progressing, making him less engaging as a character. 4 Underusing Himawari advertising
Early on, it’s pretty clearly shown that Himawari, with time, might actually be the strongest Uzumaki child. Boruto may have his Karma mark and talent, but Himawari knocked out her father, Seventh Hokage, at the age of three and awakened her Byakugan. There is a raw strength to her, but she is also inherently kind and empathetic. She is a fascinating young character the show puts little spotlight on.
Moreover, it would be hilarious to see a young, cute girl achieving feats of power older children struggle with. It wouldn’t be surprising if she could. Himawari could add more humor to the show and add another great power for fans to watch evolve. 3 Sasuke’s Crimes
Throughout Naruto , Sasuke committed countless terrible crimes. Sasuke is now seen as a hero by the village despite all he’s done. It was understandable for Naruto to forgive and forget, but not the whole village. Sasuke’s actions destroyed some lives, after all, and he did try to destroy Konoha entirely.
Even more, though it’s good Sarada doesn’t have to suffer for her father’s crimes, it’s strange no one treats her differently for it. If everyone hated Naruto just for housing a dangerous creature, why wouldn’t they treat Sasuke or Sarada poorly at times? Naruto’s generation may be kinder, but those older generations are still alive and kicking. They wouldn’t stay silent. 2 Boruto’s Lack of Likable Goals
Until he becomes closer to Sarada and makes a goal of becoming her protector, more like how Sasuke is for Naruto, Boruto has very unlikable goals. Though he’s the main character, he’s very belligerent and angst-ridden about life. His only goal is to become nothing like his father.
Though Naruto is a questionable parent, he is a good leader and warrior.
His support of Sarada is the first goal that achieves something greater. That goal isn’t realized until nearly 40 episodes into the series, though. Until then, he’s only filled with abhorrence for his father, so much so that it makes his character fairly illogically angry and flat. 1 Naruto’s Terrible Parenting
Naruto is now the Seventh Hokage, a fitting achievement for the powerful, willful young ninja. However, being Hokage makes parenting very hard. Naruto is also a highly neglectful parent, though, willing to send a shadow clone to his daughter’s birthday instead of himself.
With Naruto’s desire for family and loneliness as a child, it’s ludicrous that his bad parenting is as serious as it is. The Hokage excuse makes sense to a point, but missing major life milestones and practically ignoring the troubles of his children is blatantly irresponsible. One would think he’d be an ecstatic, almost annoyingly interactive father. Instead, Naruto is nearly non-existent and that doesn’t fit his zealous, loving personality at all. — Do you think we missed anything else wrong with Boruto ? Let us know in the comment section!
