Bill Cosby Might Be In Prison On Monday

Lise-Lotte Lublin and Chelan Lasha, who appeared with attorney Gloria Allred, also said they hoped they would be allowed to read victim impact statements before Cosby is sentenced on three felony counts of aggravated indecent assault.

On Saturday, TMZ reported that authorities close to the case have expressed that such an arrangement won't cut it for those invested in seeing Cosby brought to justice and that Constand's team "will push for the disgraced comedian/felon to be immediately hauled off to prison once the judge sentences him Monday AM".

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

The sentencing, which is expected to span two days, remains scheduled for September 24.

Bill Cosby is facing prison time as he is sentenced this week for sexual assault, capping a stunning fall from grace for a man who was once one of America's most popular entertainers. She awoke to find Cosby digitally penetrating her, touching her breasts, and placing her hand on his genitals.

Cosby is legally blind and uses a cane, something his lawyers are certain to point out along with his achievements and philanthropy. Given his advanced age and health issues, it's likely that Cosby's legal team will argue for a lesser sentence than the max 30 years.

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.

"I do think you can draw a line between the Cosby case and where we are now", she said.

At Cosby's trial, five women besides Constand testified that he had assaulted them.

"Mr Cosby should not be treated differently because he is a celebrity", she said.

The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they come forward publicly, which Lublin, Lasha and Constand have done.

Montgomery County Judge Steven O'Neill in a ruling Wednesday asks prosecutors if they hope to call the five trial witnesses.

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.
