Bill Cosby's publicist reveals the comedian counsels inmates & officers on health while in prison
At 81-years-old, Bill Cosby is currently imprisoned in Pennsylvania and has reportedly been counseling inmates and officers about health while in jail.
Bill Cosby is currently housed at the $400 million-dollar and 3,830-bed high-security complex called the State Correctional Institution-Phoenix, which is Keystone state's newest, biggest, and most expensive prison in Montgomery County, outside of Philadelphia.
According to Amsterdam News, although the TV host has yet to be placed with the rest of the general population, he is not receiving any special treatment, nor does he request for any. This was after his longtime publicist, Andrew Wyatt, visited him over the Thanksgiving Day holiday.
"He's doing great. He knows he shouldn't be there, but he's focused. It’s quite prophetic and spiritual that Mr. Cosby is in an institution called, ‘Phoenix,’ which reminds me of the quote below because it’s a story of resilience, vindication and/or freedom that will be awarded to Mr. Cosby sooner than later."
Cosby was sentenced to 3 to 10 years imprisonment for aggravated indecent assault and has reportedly been using his sentence time to help other "residents" at the prison by giving them advice on food, health, and staying out of trouble.
"“Mr. Cosby has regular and in-depth discussions about getting better nutrition for the residents and getting them on natural supplements because the residents and officers have major health problems.”
Every day, inmates are given insulin shots, and those who line up are aged 20, 30, and 40 years old. Cosby revealed to Wyatt that he is concerned about the high obesity rate of both residents and officers, especially since they are all very young.
As for whether or not Cosby is sulking while waiting for his appeal, Wyatt shot it down and said that even officers and prison officials have said that Cosby shouldn't be there.
According to Andrew, at 81 years old, Cosby isn't likely to be a threat to society, which is one of the primary reasons as to why one is incarcerated.
