Bill Cosby is being moved to a general population prison, according to a new report.

Cosby, 81, is currently serving three to 10 years in prison for three counts of aggravated sexual assault in April. He’s been doing time at the State Correctional Institute Phoenix since this fall, but he’s now been moved to a general population area of the prison.

Cosby spent approximately four months in a special housing section of the Pennsylvania prison so he could associate himself with his guards and familiarize himself with the living conditions. But the prison now thinks he’s ready to assimilate into a general population situation.

Amy Worden, a spokeswoman for the correctional facility, says Cosby will have access to gym equipment, an outdoor yard area, and library time. Since he’s legally blind, he’ll also be given general assistance for carrying out day-to-day duties during his time there.
