William Henry Cosby Jr. is an American stand-up comedian, actor, musician, author, and now a convicted sex offender. That is a hard title to add to your belt if you were in his shoes.
His successes span five decades and virtually all media, remarkable accomplishments for a kid who emerged from humble beginnings in a Philly project.
The maximum sentence for each of the three counts is 10 years, or 30 years in total, meaning the 80-year-old Cosby, who is legally blind and in poor health, could spend the end of his life in prison. Do you really think this is fair judgement?
