Bill Cosby is scheduled to be sentenced in September after being convicted of drugging and molesting former Temple University women’s basketball administrator Andrea Constand.

Cosby was found guilty of three counts of aggravated indecent assault last month. Since the verdict was handed out, Cosby has been confined to the same suburban Philadelphia mansion where he drugged and attacked Constand in 2004, with Judge Steven O’Neill ordering that he be outfitted with a GPS ankle bracelet to monitor his compliance.

As CBS notes, Cosby, who turns 81 in July, faces up to 10 years in prison for each count.

Until he is sentenced, Cosby is confined to his home unless he is meeting with his lawyers or going to the doctor. Both exceptions require that he obtain permission first.

A thick coating of morale exemplar; public moralist; and pusher of respectability politics on top of decades of sexual assault and legal/civil guerilla warfare to suppress the sheer hypocrisy.

I know he will never serve time in gen pop or in a regular facility, but I do relish in one aspect of Cosby’s demise: destruction of the notion that respectability politics somehow Trumps basic human rights and self preservation. Its the lube that right wingers use to minimize the deaths of Trayvon Martin and so many other police deaths.

F__k this guy; somewhere after Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids, Bill Cosby turned into a monster on many different levels.
