Bill Cosby to Be Sentenced This Week

Bill Cosby faces as many as 10 years in prison for each of three counts of aggravated indecent assault, when his sentencing hearing starts Monday in a Pennsylvania courtroom.

But Cosby's conviction on three counts of aggravated indecent assault refers exclusively to accusations from Constand, a former employee at Temple University in Philadelphia, Cosby's alma mater. Still, Cosby was smiling as he walked into the courthouse, and even gave a small wave while one person shouted encouragement to the disgraced comedian.

At the end of the potentially two-day hearing, Montgomery County Judge Steven T. O'Neill could sentence Cosby to as many as 30 years in prison or send him home on probation.

State sentencing guidelines, which are not mandatory, recommend a sentence between two and four years, Chanenson said.

According to The Guardian, it is rumoured that Cosby plans to appeal against the conviction, with his lawyers expected to argue for leniency, considering his age, his health, and the fact that he is legally blind. "At some point, he should acknowledge what he's done, and do the time for the crime".

The once beloved star of the 1980s television comedy The Cosby Show has seen his family-friendly reputation destroyed by allegations of sexual abuse from more than 50 women going back decades.

Cosby arrived at court Monday morning.

The judge allowed prosecutors to call five other accusers as witnesses in Cosby's second trial over the objections of his defence team, bolstering Constand's account.

It remained unclear whether Constand herself would testify.

Just a few hours before the sentencing hearing was to begin, Constand tweeted Ephesians 4:26, a Bible verse about letting go of anger: "Be wrathful, but do not sin; do not let the sun set while you are still angry; do not give the Devil an opportunity".
