Is Bill Cosby in Danger?

The disgraced comic has been moved from the confines of his own cell to the general population unit, RadarOnline.com has learned.

Cosby, 81, who is staying at the maximum security prison in Pennsylvania's SCI Phoenix, will now be forced to sleep next to a host of other highly dangerous criminals.

A maximum security prison is held for inmates serving time for violent offenses such as murder, rape and kidnapping.

According to the corrections department spokeswoman, Amy Worden, Cosby was moved to the general population wing on January 28, 2019.

He spent his first four months at the prison in a special unit, in a 7-by-13 foot cell, isolated from other inmates out of concern for his safety.

As Radar previously reported, fears for Cosby’s safety behind bars is a real concern.

“Bill Cosby, because of the nature of his crime, is gonna have a very rough ride,” ex jailbird Larry Lawton revealed in the All Rise podcast.

“He’s gonna be extorted. It started already. He’s gonna have people who don’t like him. He’s gonna have people who are mad that he’s a celebrity and he has money and they think he thinks he’s gonna get away with stuff and he’s not.”

"Sometimes celebrity inmates get treated worse,” he said. “If he thinks he’s gonna talk like a privileged person and treat people like they’re below him, he’s got another thing coming.”

On April 26, 2018, Cosby was found guilty on three counts of aggravated indecent assault. Four months later, on September 25, he was sentenced between three to ten years in state prison.
