Juice spent 9 years behind bars in Nevada for kidnapping and armed robbery and warns that people like Cosby — convicted sex offenders — don’t do well behind bars.
“The problem is the nature of the crime,” O.J. said while golfing out in Nevada … “Rapists are frowned upon in prison.”
“I’m sure there will be guys protecting him but they’re gonna have to put him in protective custody … because it takes one nut, ya know?”
81-year-old Cosby was convicted of 3 counts of aggravated indecent assault — stemming from a 2004 incident in which officials say he drugged Andrea Constand at his Pennsylvania home and molested her.
He’s been sentenced to 3 to 10 years in state prison.
But, Simpson thinks the punishment is too severe — and he’s calling for mercy.
“With his health and his age and the nature of the crime, there’s not a warden in this country wants the responsibility of a Bill Cosby. I think they should let him do his time under house arrest.”
A mere day after Bill Cosby was thrown behind bars, the Montgomery County District Attorney’s office has slapped him with a bill — for $43,611.83.
At sentencing Tuesday, Pennsylvania judge Steven O’Neill ruled that, on top of a 3- to 10-year sentence, Cosby would be forced to cough up a $25,000 fine in addition to paying back the cost of his own prosecution.
The sum covers the cost of transporting and housing the witnesses in Cosby’s April retrial — including the six accusers who helped bring down the television legend.
An invoice shows air travel, baggage fees, meals, and hotel stays for Andrea Constand, supermodel Janice Dickinson, and the others who took the stand against the famous felon, who was convicted on sex assault charges following an April retrial.
The newly-dubbed “sexually violent predator” will not be required to shell out the salaries for those who worked the case, and the DA’s office is not seeking any reimbursement for his 2017 mistrial, officials said.
At a press conference Tuesday, Montgomery County DA Kevin Steele said Cosby could likely expect a bill from the Sheriff’s Office as well.
It was not immediately clear if the county court would also seek reimbursement. If so, that could put Cosby on the hook for the stipends of the jurors who sent him to prison. A court administrator did not immediately return a message.
The 81-year-old is cooling his heels at the State Correctional Institution Phoenix before the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections assigns him to a facility where he’ll serve out his sentence.
His lawyers have said they’ll appeal the verdict and the sentence.
Tuesday, Bill Cosby began a lengthy prison sentence that will last anywhere between three to 10 years, given to him after being found guilty of three counts of aggravated indecent assault. Upon entering the Montgomery County Correctional Facility, a fellow inmate greeted Cosby with a stale hotdog bun to the face.
In a phone call to his wife Camille, Cosby recounted the hotdog incident and the other events from his initial hours in prison, according to Radar Online. Cosby, who is legally blind, said he also fell down a flight of steps because he wasn’t being guided and was without his cane — which was apparently taken away by corrections officers over fears he might use it to harm himself.
Cosby reportedly told his wife to “Grab the checkbook and hire anyone and everyone” who could get him out “as soon as possible.”
Following Tuesday’s sentencing, Cosby’s lawyers announced their intention to appeal, likening his case to the persecution of Jesus.
