Bill Cosby Says He Has No Regrets As Prisoner

Bill Cosby Says He Has No Regrets As Prisoner

In his first public statement from prison, Bill Cosby said he will never have remorse for his crimes and called himself a political prisoner.

"My political beliefs, my actions of trying to humanize all races, genders and religions landed me in this place surrounded by barb wire fencing, a room made of steel and iron," the comedian said in a statement released through his press spokesman, Andrew Wyatt, according to CNN.

Cosby, 81, also noted that his cell at SCI Phoenix, the prison outside Philadelphia where he is serving his sentence, "resembles the quarters of some of the Greatest Political Prisoners – Martin Luther King Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Randal Robinson, and Dr. Benjamin Chavis."

Cosby's statement was made public Wednesday after Wyatt spoke with WCAU in Philadelphia for a TV interview and revealed new details about the comedian's time behind bars.

Cosby, once known as "America's Dad," was sentenced in September to three to 10 years in prison for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his home in 2004.

He's being held at SCI Phoenix, a maximum security prison outside Philadelphia, and was recently moved to the prison's general population. He spent a few months in a single cell in a unit adjacent to the infirmary, said Amy Worden, press secretary for the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections.
