A newly released prison mug shot shows Bill Cosby smiling with a dispensable mask hanging off his face. The Pennsylvania DEpartmnet of Corrections recently updated Cosby’s mug shot, something routinely done to document changes to inmates’ appearance as they age. Cosby’s new photo was taken 4th September.
Later in the evening, a blurry picture was tweeted from Cosby’s verified account showing him using what appeared to be a prison telephone, pulling a mask away from his chin as he smiled.
It was accompanied by text that said, “This photo was taken by his publicist, Andrew Wyatt, during his first virtual video conference call with Mr. Cosby last week. We are posting this to reassure his family and supporters that he is doing ok during this pandemic.”Cosby, 83, was convicted of felony sex assault and is serving a three to 10-year prison term.
An appeals court had upheld his conviction, but the Pennsylvania Supreme Court agreed this year to review two keys issues in the case. The appeal is scheduled to be heard 1st December.
