The first African-American actor to grace primetime U.S. television and the man who personified upper-middle-class black family bliss on television is now a frail sex offender headed to a state prison.Only five years ago, his cultural influence was once so great that television chat show queen Oprah Winfrey credited the now 81-year-old Cosby with helping to pave the way for America's first black president, Barack Obama.He won an athletic scholarship to Temple University and started doing stand-up.As a young man in his early 20s, Cosby appeared on variety programs, but got his first big break in 1965 when he co-starred in the espionage thriller "I Spy". The sitcom was a fabulous success, turning Cosby into a major figure of U.S. pop culture in the second half of the 20th century.Not once has Cosby publicly expressed any remorse.Cosby did not testify at trial.
