Bill Cosby is pictured behind bars in his suburban Philadelphia prison for the first time in two years.
Corby, 83, has been incarcerated at the State Correctional Institution in Phoenix, PA, since September 2018, when a jury found him guilty of drugging and sexually assaulting a woman at his home in 2004.
The latest picture of the humiliated comic was taken inside the state prison on 4 September and released on Tuesday.
The image shows a disheveled-looking Cosby leaning towards the ground, with her eyes away from the camera and a white face mask hanging around her neck.
The prison periodically takes new pictures of the inmates as their appearance may change over time and Cosby was due for an update.
He looks remarkably different to the man who entered the facility two years ago.
The infamous comic (left in 2018, right in 2018) was drawn inside the state prison on 4 September. The image shows a disgruntled-looking Cosby smiling towards the ground, with a white face mask around her neck.

In the original image on September 25, 2018, a fawn-looking Cosby was shown staring at the camera from far away, his top button unaffected, brace-suspenders still clasped over his shoulders.
More detailed indications of the expression he showed in his latest mugshot may be due to the fact that he is due for parole soon, serving two years of his three-to-10-year sentence.
This is not the only news about which Cosby may have reason to smile. In June, following a surprise ruling that could test the legal framework of the #MeToo cases, the comedian won the right to contest his 2018 sexual harassment sentence in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court has agreed to review two aspects of the case, calling on the judge’s decision to call five other prosecutors for a long-term deal with the once-powerful actor and comedian To testify about the encounter.
Cosby’s lawyers have long challenged that testimony as remote and unreliable. The court will also consider this, because it allows for the scope of testimony, whether the jury should provide evidence that Cosby had qualified women in the past.
Second, the court will examine Cosby’s argument that he had an agreement with a former prosecutor that he would never be charged in the case. Cosby has said that he relied on that agreement before the trial prosecutor agreed to testify in a civil trial.
Those issues have been at the center of the case since he was charged in December 2015, days before Cosby’s 12-year term expired.

Montgomery County prosecutors reopened the case that year when the Associated Press fought for unheard parts of Cosby’s decade-old deposition testimony in the accusing Andrea Constand’s sexual abuse and defamation lawsuit against Cosby, They settled in 2006.
Many other accused have since come forward to accuse Cosby, who had long been beloved as the ‘Dad of America’, because of a 1980s sitcom of similar misconduct.
Montgomery County Judge Stephen O’Neill allowed just one of them to testify at Cosby’s first trial in 2017, which ended with being acquitted.
But a year later, following the #MeToo movement in the wake of reporting on Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, the judge allowed five other accused to testify on the recidivism. The jury convicted Cosby on all three felony charges.
Lawyer Brian W. Perry argued in the appeal that the other accused ‘confirms constitutional jurisprudence on his head,’ and that the presumption of guilt constitutes the basis, rather than the presumption of innocence. ‘
Spokesperson Andrew Wyatt said Cosby was “extremely grateful” the court would hear the case.
He said the decision comes in the form of protesters across the country, protesting the deaths of black people at the hands of the police and exposing ‘the corruption inherent within the criminal justice system’.
Wyatt said in a statement, ‘As we’ve all said, Bill Cosby’s false belief is much bigger than that – it’s about the destruction of All Black people and people of color in America.’
Cosby’s lawyers also challenged his classification as a sexually violent predator for lifelong supervision. The actor, who insists that he had a normal encounter with the accused Constand, said he would not express remorse on the parole board.
His wife, Camille Cosby, said a few days after the decision that the #MeToo movement needed to ‘clean up her act’ and that she did not ‘care’ about the feelings of more than 50 women who had their The husband is accused of drugging and sexually assaulted her.

‘My first reaction is hope, the possibilities are there,’ Camil said in his first major media interview in six years.
‘The state’s highest court has said: “Wait a minute. There are some problems here. They can be considered for appeal.” I am very happy, very happy. ‘
Asked if he is worried about the ‘#MeToo Movement to Blowback’ and who think you’re on the wrong side of history, ‘Camille replied:’ First of all, I don’t care what they feel We do. ‘
Camille, who has been married to Bill since 1964 and shares five children with him, sexually abused her husband for decades, as he was publicly accused of sexual harassment in 2005.
At the time, Camille did not indicate whether she had spoken to her husband after the decision to hear his appeal in court, but said she was doing ‘very well’.
She said that she has not gone to meet her husband in SCI Phoenix because: ‘I don’t want to see her in that environment, she doesn’t want me to see her in that environment.’
Cosby was denied early release from prison despite the outbreak of COVID-19 inside the facility where she is staying.
In April, the Government of Pennsylvania. Tom Wolf revealed plans to ‘temporarily relieve’ at-risk prisoners in a bid to stop the spread of coronovirus.
The announcement sparked speculation that Cosby might be freed, but the state’s Department of Corrections crushed any hope for the aging star.
A spokesperson for the department told the media that sex offenders are not eligible under repressed norms.
