Bill Cosby to be sentenced for sexual assault


Testimony during the two-day hearing could be essential to the verdict of the case, however it is unclear whether the five woman who have testified will be permitted to speak.

Bill Cosby's wife announced Friday that she's retained a former prosecutor to investigate the judge who will preside over her husband's looming sentencing.

As we reported. Cosby faces a maximum of 30 years in prison for aggravated indecent assault on Andrea Constand.

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

Cosby plans to appeal against the conviction, and his lawyers will probably argue for leniency considering his age and frail health.

In June 2017, she described being given pills that left her "frozen" and unable to stop Cosby from assaulting her.

Due to Cosby's lack of apologies to his victims, his lack of public remorse and his criticism for the judge, Steven T. O'Neill there is a lot stacked against him. She said Cosby should be sentenced to "a substantial period of time", shouldn't receive probation or house arrest, and shouldn't remain free pending appeal.

One key issue for the sentencing hearing is whether Cosby will be designated a "sexually violent predator".

"I think for a lot of survivors, they can see themselves in this story", she said. The judge saw it differently and released him on $1 million bail, ordering him to remain at his home until sentencing.

Although five woman have testified during this case, more than 60 women have claimed that Cosby assaulted them, ranging from groping to rape, with many claiming that he also drugged them. Most recently, they saw their request to have additional accusers be allowed to testify at the sentencing hearing shot down. Prosecutors hope to call other accusers to paint Cosby as a sexual predator deserving of prison.

The trial - his second, after the jury in a first trial failed to reach a verdict - was the first of a celebrity accused of sexual assault since the beginning of the #MeToo movement.

When Bill Cosby is sentenced Monday for drugging and molesting a woman, it will be a final chapter in downfall that leaves some blacks pained and others proud.
