Denying Cosby’s bail, the Montgomery County court Judge pronounced the judgment, saying, “I am not permitted to treat him any differently based on who he is or who he was. No one is above law, and no one should be treated differently or disproportionally.” Cosby was also categorised as a sexually violent predator, which means that he must undergo counseling for life and be listed on the sex offender registry.
