It seems that Bill Cosby still views himself as a teacher and role model, based on a recent report that’s surfaced.
According to TMZ, the fallen comedian is giving his fellow inmates lectures on being good fathers, staying out of prison in the future and keeping off drugs.
Cosby was convicted on three counts of aggravated indecent assault in April of last year after being accused of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, a former Temple University worker. He was sentenced to 3 to 10 years behind bars.
His representative Andrew Wyatt revealed that he’s been giving up to four lectures a week in the Pennsylvania prison for the past three months, and as many as 100 inmates show up at a time.
Some of the other topics Cosby covers include inmates being better role models for their children and re-establishing relationships with them upon release. He also encourages them to keep out of prison once they’re out.
Most of the attendees are made up of an inmate group called “Man Up,” who are due for parole, which is why Cosby talks about recidivism.
There’s an employment component to his lectures as well, so he gives prisoners advice on how to properly interview and how to stay clean after they’re freed.
To get his message across, Cosby injects humor into his talks, which the inmates have reportedly taken to in a major way.
