Cosby (83) is best known for starring in the 1980s TV series The Cosby Show and was once known as “America’s Dad”.

He had served more than two years of a three to 10-year sentence at a state prison near Philadelphia after he was found guilty of drugging and molesting ex-basketball player Andrea Constand.
