Bill Cosby has been denied parole and will not be granted a release from his post at SCI – Phoenix in Pennsylvania.
Cosby, 83, has served more than two years of his three-to-10-year prison sentence for drugging and molesting Andrea Constand, whom he met through the basketball program at his alma mater, Temple University.
The disgraced actor and comedian had a parole hearing on May 11 and the Pennsylvania parole board decided that Cosby had not yet met the requirements that warranted a release from prison.
He also received a “negative recommendation made by the department of corrections” and that at his next parole hearing, the board will review and consider whether he has “successfully participated in/successfully completed a treatment program for sex offenders and violence prevention.”
Cosby must also receive a “favorable recommendation for parole from the department of corrections and the board will determine if he has “maintained a clear conduct record” for the duration of his incarceration.
