Bill Cosby Is a ‘Sexually Violent Predator’, Judge Rules
A Pennsylvania judge has ruled Bill Cosby, the comic once dubbed America’s Dad, is a sexually violent predator.
The label means Cosby, 81, must undergo counselling for life and appear on the sex offenders’ registry.
A judge made the ruling ahead of sentencing the comedian for drugging and molesting a woman at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004.
At a retrial in April, Cosby was found guilty of three counts of sexual assault against Andrea Constand.
The actor’s defence lawyers had called the state’s sex offender law too severe.
