Comedian Bill Cosby inmate NN7687 has a new home – a spartan jail cell.
It is a single 7-by-13-foot cell with a 10-foot ceiling.
This is in sharp contrast to the comedian’s luxury lifestyle.
The 81-year-old comedian was sentenced from three to 10 years in prison for the sexual assault of Andrea Constand, a former Temple University employee.
Previously Cosby enjoyed the lifestyle of the Rich and Famous.
He owned a private jet, artwork and dozen of classic cars.
He had homes in New York, Massachusetts and Nevada.
His fortune was an estimated $400 million.
