While Bill Cosby spends three to 10 years in prison for the drugging and sexual assault of Andrea Constand, he has been giving some “fatherly” advice to his fellow inmates at the SCI-Phoenix prison, where he is being held.

Cosby has been spending his time in prison acting as a mentor to the other younger inmates and has even channeled his Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable character to give some fatherly advice to them by acting as a counselor in a prison group, Inside Edition reported.

"I guess he's like a mentor," Raheem Shackleford, a former inmate at the prison told the news outlet. "He helps the people and I guess gives fatherly and still gives Heathcliff, that Heathcliff Huxtable."

Cosby has climbed the ranks as the most popular inmate at the prison and is reportedly well-liked by the other inmates and guards. He is afforded special privileges such as extra commissary and a personal laptop to keep up on email as well as being allowed to smoke Punch Double Corona cigars from Cuba while enjoying extra yard time, Radar Online reported.

While Cosby works diligently to provide advice to the other inmates at the prison, he is refusing to attend a sexually violent predators course because he believes it would be an admission of guilt, Inside Edition reported. This could jeopardize his parole, but according to Andrew Wyatt, his spokesman, he would rather serve his full 10-year sentence than attend the course.
