Disgraced comedian Bill Cosby—who was sentenced in September to 3 to 10 years in prison after being convicted last year of aggravated indecent assault for the drugging and sexual assault of Andrea Constand in 2004—was moved into general population at the prison where he is serving his sentence. 

Amy Worden, press secretary for the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections, told CNN that the 81-year-old was moved into a single cell with no cellmate on Jan. 28, and is being “treated just the same as any other inmate.”

Single cells with no cellmate are typical at State Correctional Institute at Phoenix, where Cosby is listed as Inmate No. NN7687 and housed in a unit that includes inmates of varying ages—not in a geriatric unit. 

The unit has cells on two stories that surround a central “day room” where inmates can watch television, play cards and socialize. 

Worden said Cosby, who is visually impaired, has assistants as needed.
