Justice has finally been served for disgraced felon Bill Cosby!

Fourteen years after he mercilessly drugged and sexually assaulted Temple University employee Andrea Constand, the shamed comic has been sentenced to "total confinement" for no less than three years and no more than ten in a Pennsylvania state prison, RadarOnline.com can report.

After a tense two-day sentencing, Judge Steven T. O’Neill delivered the shocking ruling in court on Tuesday, September 25.

The 81-year-old fallen star was also fined $25,000, persecution and court costs, and forbidden from contacting Constand or her family.

"It is time for justice," O'Neill told the court. "It is time for justice in a court of law. Mr. Cosby, this has all circled back to you. The day has come. Your time has come."

The judge is currently deciding if Cosby should be remanded immediately, which prosecutor Kevin Steele demanded.

"No amount of bail," Steele told the judge after his ruling. "This man is worth $400 million."

Earlier today, O'Neill ruled Cosby is a "sexually violent predator" who must register with the Pennsylvania State Police fro the rest of his lifetime.

While Cosby's long-suffering wife Camille remained home, Janice Dickinson and nearly 20 other women who have accused Cosby of assault packed the court to witness the end of the criminal's nearly four-year legal saga.

On Monday, Cosby’s team unsuccessfully tried to argue their legally blind client wasn’t fit for incarceration.

“What does an 81-year-old man do in prison?” defense attorney Joseph Green asked the judge. “How does he fight off the people who are trying to extort him, or walk to the mess hall?”

Montgomery County District Attorney Steele, however, remained firm on his demand Cosby serve between 5 to 10 years in prison.

“Despite bullying tactics, despite PR teams and other folks trying to change the optics, as one lawyer for the defense put it, the bottom line is that nobody’s above the law. Nobody,” Steele insisted.

As Radar reported, Cosby faced up to 30 years behind bars for attacking Andrea Constand in 2004.

In a tell-all interview with NBC for Dateline, Constand, 45, detailed the events that finally led Cosby to incarceration.

“Three blue pills. And he put his hand out and I said, ‘What are those?’ And he said, ‘They’ll help you relax,'” Constand recalled. “And I said, ‘Are they natural? Are they, like, a herbal remedy?’ And he said, ‘No, they’re your friends. Just put them down.’”

“I trusted that they would maybe just help me feel a little more relaxed,” she continued.

But after a few minutes, she began to slur her words, and lost control of her body. It was then that Cosby assaulted her.

“I was crying out inside, in my throat, in my mind, for this to stop. And I couldn’t do anything,” Constand said.

A jury previously found Cosby guilty on three felony counts of aggravated indecent assault in the shocking case that finally took down the once-beloved actor.
