Cosby back in court for sentencing

The sentences could be served concurrently by Mr. Cosby, who has said he is legally blind.

Cosby's day of reckoning is set for Monday, September 24, when he will be formally sentenced for the crimes he was convicted of committing against former Temple University employee Andrea Constand back in 2004. According to TMZ, prosecutors are hoping things will go differently at Monday's sentencing hearing. Over several decades, he has been accused of assaulting over 60 women.

Cosby, who became known as "America's dad" as the star of his "The Cosby Show" sitcom, faces a maximum sentence up to 10 years in prison for each of the three counts, though sentencing guidelines may lead the judge to a lesser sentence.

Lasha, who wept during her testimony at the trial last spring, said she prays Cosby is sentenced to 30 years.

Bill Cosby just walked into court on the arm of his publicist Andrew Wyatt. But when prosecutors asked the judge to revoke his bail because, they claimed, he has a private plane, Cosby stood up and yelled, "He doesn't have a plane, you a**hole", referring to himself.

Whatever the sentence, Cosby is likely to be deemed a sexually violent predator and will have to undergo monthly counseling the rest of his life, in prison or out.

"I really think it's important that he spend some time behind bars", said Lublin, who said Cosby assaulted her when she was 23 in 1989.

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.

On Thursday, Montgomery County Judge Stephen O'Neill denied a prosecution request to allow other accusers to testify as evidence of Cosby's alleged "uncharged criminal acts".

Two of those women, Lise-Lotte Lublin and Chelan Lasha, said Sunday at a Philadelphia news conference that they want prison for him and hope they get to make impact statements at the sentencing. Cosby's attorneys intend to argue that the state's sex-reporting law is unconstitutional for its negative categorization of defendants, and the subsequent effects.
