Actor and comedian Bill Cosby will not be walking out of prison anytime soon despite the recent uptick of offenders being granted early release due to the coronavirus.
Cosby is currently serving up to 10 years for sexual assault in a facility in Pennsylvania, and a state official tells Fox News that any speculation that Cosby will be able to serve time at home is false.
“Sex offenders are not eligible under the reprieve criteria,” a Pennsylvania Department of Corrections spokesperson said in a statement.
Cosby’s rep, Andrew Wyatt, however, appeared to exude confidence when discussing his client’s potential.
“We strongly feel that Mr. Cosby will be released and remanded to house arrest in the upcoming weeks. Mr. Cosby is 82 years old; Mr. Cosby has an underlying medical condition — blindness,” Wyatt said.
Cosby is currently housed at the SCI Phoenix facility in Montgomery County, where at least one corrections officer reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 in March.
The confusion about Cosby’s fate comes amid Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf ordering the Department of Corrections to relocate some current prisoners to their homes or “community corrections facilities.”
A rep for Cosby did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
Do you care or do you just want the damn check? The Washington Post’s Lisa Rein reports: The Treasury Department has ordered President Trump’s name be printed on stimulus checks the Internal Revenue Service is rushing to send to tens of millions of Americans, a process that is expected to slow their delivery by several days, senior agency officials said.
The unprecedented decision, finalized late Monday, means that when recipients open the $1,200 paper checks the IRS is scheduled to begin sending to 70 million Americans in coming days, “President Donald J. Trump” will appear on the left side of the payment.
It will be the first time a president’s signature appears on an IRS disbursement, whether a routine refund or one of the handful of checks the government has issued to taxpayers in recent decades either to stimulate a down economy or share the dividends of a strong one.
While some people receiving the checks — the centerpiece of the U.S. government’s economic relief package to stave of the effects of the coronavirus pandemic — may not care, or observe, whose name appears on them, the decision is another sign of Trump’s effort to cast his response to the pandemic in political terms.
Trump had privately suggested to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who oversees the IRS, to allow the president to formally sign the checks, according to three administration officials who asked not to be named because they were not authorized to speak publicly.
