(Newser) – What adjective do you think Bill Cosby uses to describe his prison experience? If you picked "amazing," you'd apparently be correct. In an interview with NBC10, Cosby rep Andrew Wyatt was explicit: "Yeah, he used the term amazing experience." And Wyatt had some updates on what that experience is like for the 81-year-old, who is four months into a 3- to 10-year sentence for sexual assault. The latest on Cosby and his time behind bars:

  • Per the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections, Cosby was in late January moved from a cell near the infirmary into the general population at the Philadelphia-area SCI Phoenix. The two-story unit features cells surrounding a central "day room."
  • In comments to CNN last week, Wyatt disputed the "gen pop" characterization: "He does not eat in the area with other residents, he does not have a cellmate, and he does not exercise with other residents." The DOC countered that he is in gen pop but hasn't yet been "integrated."
