On Wednesday afternoon, the 83-year-old walked out of the State Correctional Institution Phoenix in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, officials told ABC News.

Aerial footage from Philadelphia ABC station WPVI showed Cosby getting out of a car at his Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, mansion wearing a maroon T-shirt and baggy trousers. He flashed a peace sign as people helped him walk into his home.

Cosby was sentenced in September 2018 to three to 10 years in state prison for allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting former Temple University employee Andrea Constand in 2004. He served about three years of his sentence.
