After over a year in prison, Cosby is frankly unrepentant and continues to claim he is innocent of sexually abusing Andrea Constand and the other dozens of women who have since come forward.
According to Cosby, his conviction was a miscarriage of justice which can be laid at the door of the jury in his case whom he describes bitterly as "Impostors."

The comedian, who was found guilty of three counts of aggravated indecent assault for drugging and molesting Andrea Constand in 2004, was sentenced to three to ten years in prison. His lack of contrition may well see the 82-year-old spend the rest of his life in prison.

BILL COSBY HAS PRIVILEGED TREATMENT IN PRISON
Cosby is receiving what can only be described as special treatment inside the prison walls, with his own private cell which he calls his "Penthouse," and the constant attendance of a trusted inmate due to his blindness.
Cosby has reportedly charmed both the staff and his fellow inmates and revealed that he "imparts his wisdom" to a group of 400 other prisoners, still playing America's Dad even behind bars.

From behind prison walls, Bill Cosby released a statement saying he has "no remorse" because he is innocent, adding he feels he is a "political prisoner." Cosby’s publicist, Andrew Wyatt, visits the convicted 81-year-old entertainer regularly. His most recent trip to SCI Phoenix in Skippack to see him was just a couple weeks ago — his 15th visit in total. Wyatt described Cosby as "strong." "He said, 'I am making the best of it, and I am fine.' And he said, 'I am treated very well here,' " added Wyatt. Cosby explained in a statement that he has no remorse because "I was given a deal; I settled out of court for $3.8 million dollars; I waived my 5th amendment rights; I was declared Not Guilty in 2005 by the Commonwealth - never charged. However, a low-life District Attorney and a corrupt Judge needed me Guilty now. Not for justice, but for their political aspirations." Cosby wakes up before dawn, according to Wyatt, and works out in his cell to stay physically fit, though he has griped that the food is too salty. "To get the sodium off the food, he puts his food in a cup and he rinses it off three times at the sink with water to get the sodium off, and he eats the food," said Wyatt. "He said that it reminds him of some of the great political prisoners, like MLK and Randall Robinson, Dr. Benjamin Chavis and Nelson Mandela." Wyatt said Cosby feels he is behind bars because of his political beliefs. "Because people did not like how he was trying to engage the black community on becoming entrepreneurs — not just the black community, but all communities, all races, to have a voice," he noted. Cosby may be eligible for parole after three years, but he may have to serve the 10-year maximum if the parole board feels he is not taking responsibility or if he doesn’t fulfill the requirements of his sentence. But Cosby maintains his innocence, and he has refused to attend required classes as part of a sexually violent predator designation. "He said, 'Andrew, they want me to go to these classes,' but he said, 'I’m not attending,' " explained Wyatt. In his statement, Cosby called the mandatory classes "entrapment." #freebillcosby #FarFromFinished
“I was there. I don’t care what group of people come along and talk about this when they weren’t there. They don’t know.”
Of course, there was someone else present for each and every alleged and proved offense: the victim. And they know...and apparently so did the jury.
It is interesting to note that neither Mr. Cosby's wife of 54 years nor any of his children have been to visit him since his imprisonment.
