Bill Cosby To Be Sentenced For Sexual Assault In September
Lawyers for the comedian had asked Judge Steven O’Neill to delay sentencing until the end of the year
Embattled comedian Bill Cosby could spend the rest of his life in prison as his fate would be determined in September. His sentencing has been slated for 24th and 25th of the month.
Cosby who clocked 81 July was found guilty on three counts of aggravated indecent assault in a Pennsylvania court last month for his January 2004 attack on Andrea Constand, a former employee at the actor’s alma mater, Temple University. She claimed the funnyman had drugged and assaulted her at his home in the state.
His convictions are expected to be combined into one charge that carries a standard sentencing range of five to 10 years behind bars. Cosby is currently under house arrest as his lawyers plan to appeal the conviction, which was delivered at the end of his second trial.
