During his time in jail, in which he said he was a “privileged man” and his cell was a “penthouse”, Cosby participated in a reform programme called Mann Up. In the interview he clarified that we wasn’t part of the association, but he was a regular speaker.
“I never wanted them to lord me up [be put on a pedestal]. This is a great privilege.”
Other inmates in the prison spoke about the impact Cosby’s presence had on them.
“This powerful man, one of the best comics, a legend and here he is with us,” said Tyree Wallace, an inmate who has served more than two decades in prison, according to NNPA Newswire.
Legal experts said sex offenders typically must show remorse to be considered for parole.
