The fallen actor and comedian, 81, was sentenced to three to 10 years in state prison for sexually assaulting a woman in 2004, the courts determined last month. Cosby, who will be in his mid-to-late 80s (if not early 90s) by the time he’s released, is now one of the more than 164,400 adults 55 and older in prison (a 280% jump from 1999, when there were only about 43,300 in the same age bracket, and 2016).
