Bill Cosby Will Enter General Population While in Prison

Bill Cosby won’t be getting the celebrity treatment in the slammer, because officials already have plans to make sure he is placed in gen pop.

According to officials at the Pennsylvania DOC, Cosby was transferred Tuesday night to SCI Phoenix, where he is currently being processed. We’re told that will include meetings with staff from medical, psychology and the records departments.

As of now, Cosby is being housed in a single cell near the infirmary, with the opportunity to place phone calls, receive visitors and even exercise a bit. However, officials tell us the “long-term goal” is for Cosby to be “placed in the general population to receive the programming required during his incarceration.”

We’re told all the necessary precautions are being taken to ensure the comedian’s “safety and general welfare in our institution,” but are making it clear that he will live the prison life as a regular inmate.

At least he got some vanilla pudding last night.
