81-year-old Cosby was convicted last year of aggravated indecent assault for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004.

In a statement to WCAU about his sentencing, Cosby said he will "never have remorse".

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

Last year, Cosby was convicted of drugging and sexually assaulting a woman in his home in 2004, and was sentenced to 10 years in state prison on September 25. "So, I now have a temporary residence that resembles the quarters of some of the Greatest Political Prisoners - Martin Luther King, Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Randal Robinson, and Dr Benjamin Chavis".

He added: "I will stand upright as a Political Prisoner and I Smile. The truth is strong". "When I visit him, it's nothing sad about it", he said.

Wyatt said that "despite the circumstances", the disgraced comic, 81, told him that being locked up "is an wonderful experience".

Bill Cosby is once again speaking out from behind bars, and comparing himself to three of the most respected non-violent political protesters in history. He said the star has lost weight, waking up at 3 a.m.to do calisthenics and he gave up coffee.

"People want to limit him to being a comedian and actor, but Mr. Cosby is a civil-rights icon", Wyatt told INSIDER.

Cosby is also appealing both his sentence and conviction.

While Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein have also been investigated over sexual-assault allegations, Wyatt said Cosby's conviction was exclusively because he is a black man.

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

Rolling out has previously reported that Cosby does not receive visitors from family nor friends, not even his wife, who lives only 45 minutes away from the prison in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. As spokesperson Amy Worden more recently told the Associate Press (via Page Six), the prison has taken the former stand-up comedian's age and ability into account during his stay by assigning Cosby, who claims to be legally blind, inmates to sometimes help him get around.

During the day, they're permitted to spend several hours in an exercise yard or gym; they can also spend time in a library, classroom, day room or a visiting area.
