Cosby accusers say they hope he is sentenced to jail time

  • Bill Cosby exits the Montgomery County Courthouse after a mistrial was declared in Norristown Pa

Cosby is due in court for a two-day sentencing hearing beginning on Monday, where Judge Steven O'Neill will decide his fate at the Montgomery county courthouse in Norristown, Pennsylvania.

Several of Cosby's victims also arrived at court Monday for the sentencing, including supermodel Janice Dickinson, who testified at the trial.

Defense attorneys are likely to point to Cosby's age, declining health, history of philanthropic giving and the fact that this is his first criminal conviction as factors that show he should receive a short prison sentence - or none at all.

According to NBC News, "Cosby's lawyers opposed the request for additional accusers to testify at the sentencing hearing".

The judge set to sentence actor Bill Cosby on sex assault charges is limiting the number of other accusers who can testify next week.

The entire exchange led to an awkward moment in Queens as fans boo'd non-stop after Osaka's historic win. Yes, what she did is clearly against the rules, which call for a code violation to be assessed.

State sentencing guidelines, which are not mandatory, recommend a sentence between two and four years, Chanenson said. She awoke to find Cosby digitally penetrating her, touching her breasts, and placing her hand on his genitals. The hearings will also determine whether Cosby is designated a sexually violent predator.

Cosby, once the beloved star of the 1980s television comedy "The Cosby Show", eventually faced accusations from some 60 women stretching back decades, some of which had always been known but previously failed to gain traction. He maintains his encounters with Constand and other women were consensual. Judge O'Neill has had authority over the case for three years, after police arrested Cosby in December 2015 as well as during his trial in 2017 which ended in gridlock.

In a ruling last week, O'Neill refused to step down, calling the claim of bias "unsubstantiated" and "meritless". Prosecutors wanted Cosby behind bars immediately, though the judge granted him $1 million bail, allowing him to stay at home all summer.

But the Buress clip was the first rumble of an avalanche bearing down on Cosby, prompting dozens of women to come forward with their own stories of abuse by the entertainer, eventually leading to his arrest and subsequent conviction.
