Bill Cosby may earn $0.50 an hour doing odd jobs in prison

American TV icon, Bill Cosby was yesterday found guilty and sentenced to 3 to 10 years in prison for sexual misconduct on over 100 women and according to multiple reports, he could do a bunch of odd prison jobs while serving his sentence.

A Pennsylvania Dept. of Corrections source told TMZ, if Cosby wants to, he can go right to work if there are positions available. While working isn’t mandatory, Cosby certainly has a lot of ways to make up to nearly half a buck an hour.

Just a few examples of what he could do – Maintenance (inside or outside), kitchen work, assisting infirm inmates or working in garment factories. We’re told that if Cosby was placed in any of these departments … he’d work a job that’d accommodate his legal blindness. In other words … he probably won’t slop gruel on trays.

Salaries for these gigs range from $0.19 to $0.45 per hour — just a slight dip from when he was crowned the world’s highest-paid actor, reportedly earning a total of $84 million in 1986 and 1987 … and millions more he raked in when it eventually went into syndication.

As we reported … Cosby was sentenced Tuesday to three to ten years in a state prison after being convicted of sexual assault. He was taken into custody immediately, and eventually posed for a very sad mug shot.

It’s unclear where exactly he’ll ultimately serve his sentence … but his first meal behind bars featured a snack he was very familiar with.

A couple other notes about his prison stint — Bill will likely be housed with other inmates, unless there’s some sort of gang affiliation we’re not aware of. He also won’t be separated from the general population … unless he comes down with some serious illness that sends him to the infirmary.

As for guards that might be fans of his … we’re told prison staff are trained to be professional, and wouldn’t ask for autographs. Inmates’ safety is their top priority.
