Bill Cosby’s Reported Prison Living Conditions Sound Unbelievable

Here’s how the disgraced icon will spend his days.

Published September 28, 2018

With a few days passing since Bill Cosby's sentencing of three to 10 years in state prison following his guilty verdict of sexual assault, officials are now revealing the arrangements surrounding his stay at maximum security prison SCI Phoenix in Collegeville, Pennsylvania, and they're likely not what one may expect.

According to Fox News, Amy Worden, press secretary for the state's Department of Corrections, revealed that the disgraced comedian will stay in a single-occupant cell, 7-feet by 13-feet in size, with a 10-feet tall ceiling. 

While there, Cosby will reportedly have a slew of amenities at his disposal including a game room, an exercise room and he will even be able to purchase a television, radio and tablet of his own to ensure he can receive emails.

Worden added that "these are possessions that inmates are allowed to have."

She also mentioned that while he is currently staying in a cell near the infirmary, Cosby will "likely be moved to general population at some point."

"He is a bit of an unusual circumstance because he is a high-profile inmate and he's being kept in a certain part of the facility," Worden continued, stressing that the length of time inmates are allowed out of their cells depends on the area of the prison facility they are housed.
