Even though he’s supposed to be doing hard time after being convicted of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004, disgraced comedian Bill Cosby is having an “amazing” time in prison, The New York Post’s Page Six reports.
Meanwhile, Cosby continues to maintain he did nothing wrong.
That’s the word from Andrew Wyatt, Cosby’s lawyer and longtime aide, who talked to Philadelphia’s WCAU-TV about Cosby’s situation in a maximum-security prison in Pennsylvania. Cosby, 81, is serving up to 10 years.
“Wyatt said that Cosby’s spirits remain high and the comedian enjoys talking to other inmates and encouraging them,” The Post reports.
Wyatt is quoted telling the station: “Despite the circumstances, [Cosby] said, ‘This is an amazing experience.’” Wyatt added: “Mr. Cosby had prepared himself. … He’s mentally strong. He’s just a strong man.”
Wyatt also reports that Cosby has lost weight and is not eating bread or drinking coffee. “What’s funny about that — Mrs. Cosby has been trying to stop him from drinking coffee for 55 years and he said it took this to stop him from drinking coffee,” Wyatt said.
