Bill Cosby's Prison Experience in a Word? 'Amazing'

Bill Cosby arrives at the Montgomery County Courthouse on the first day of sentencing in his sexual assault trial

"I, [Mr. Cosby] have "no" remorse and will never have remorse", the letter reads, going on to blame Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele and Judge Steven O'Neill for his prosecution. "She has not visited him".

A jury found Cosby guilty of giving former Temple University staffer Andrea Constand a mystery medication and sexually assaulting at his suburban Pennsylvania mansion in 2004. I stand upright as a political prisoner and I smile.

'So, I now have a temporary residence that resembles the quarters of some of the Greatest Political Prisoners - Martin Luther King, Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Randal Robinson, and Dr. Benjamin Chavis'. Not for justice, but for their political aspirations.

In his statement, Cosby compares his time in prison to the sentences of Nelson Mandela and Gandhi while at the same time saying he has no remorse for any of his actions. "The Truth is Strong!"

Much of that interview was devoted to what Wyatt and Cosby's publicist Ebonee Benson see as an unjust arrest and conviction that would have never occurred were Cosby not black.

Since Cosby was admitted to the prison, he has undergone a transformation.

As far as his mental and physical state, Wyatt said Cosby has lost weight while behind bars; as the wakes up early to exercise in his cell.

Camille Cosby has not yet visited her husband in prison, sparking rumors that a divorce is imminent.

As reported, his wife of more than 50 years, Camille, hasn't visited him and doesn't plan to. He added that Cosby is "mentally strong" and had long prepared himself for being in prison because he felt the district attorney was out to get him. "He doesn't want the situation to be turned into a circus", Wyatt said.

Instead, Mr. and Mrs. Cosby prefer to speak to by phone - three times a day for three minutes each, the report states. Last week, the spokesman noted that Cosby has little interaction with the facility's other inmates. Like all other general population inmates, Cosby must be accounted for in his cell seven times a day.
