Bill Cosby: 'Prison is an unbelievable experience'

Bill Cosby: 'Prison is an unbelievable experience'

Despite languishing away in a 6×9 cell in state prison, disgraced icon Bill Cosby, claims that being locked up has nevertheless been an "amazing experience".

'Mr. Cosby said Malcolm X, Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson Mandela helped him prepare for this chapter of his life, ' added Wyatt.

Cosby's spokesperson Andrew Wyatt told NBC in Philadelphia his client actually used the word "amazing" when describing incarceration.

Cosby in a statement calls himself a political prisoner in keeping with Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi.

Cosby was sentenced in September for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his home in 2004.

He's being held at SCI Phoenix, a maximum security prison outside Philadelphia, and was recently moved to the prison's general population. The sexual predator was known as "America's Dad" after starring as the family head in hit US TV series The Cosby Show.

"And he hasn't drank any coffee since he's been in there", Wyatt told the news outlet.

Cosby is also appealing both his sentence and conviction.

He believes it was the political aspirations of a district attorney and a judge that landed him in prison, according to the statement.

Cosby was moved to general population at the state prison on January 28. after spending his first few months in "administrative segregation".

The case came after dozens of women came forward with accusations that Cosby had drugged and assaulted them in similar incidents over his lengthy career atop the comedy world.

His wife Camille has not visited him so far. "When I visit him, it's nothing sad about it", he said.

Cosby does not have a cellmate and speaks to his wife Camille on the phone three times each day for three minutes at a time.

Wyatt told CNN last week that Cosby is living largely separated from other inmates, except that he has helpers who guide him around because of his vision problems. As for all other general population prisoners, Cosby must be accounted for in his cell seven times each day.

Wyatt said he visits Cosby every other week - and the star's attorneys visit as well.
