Bill Cosby to Be Sentenced for Sexual Assault
The iconic, disgraced actor could spend the rest of his life in jail.
Bill Cosby will be sentenced September 24, almost five months to the day after he was convicted of sexual assault, a judge said Tuesday. Lawyers for the comedian, who turns 81 in July and faces the prospect of the rest of his life in prison, had asked Judge Steven O'Neill to delay sentencing until the end of the year. Cosby's convictions on three counts of aggravated indecent assault will likely be combined into one charge that carries a standard sentence of five to 10 years in prison. The man once revered as America's Dad has been a prisoner in his suburban Philadelphia mansion since his April 26 conviction and he hasn't been heard from since lashing out at a prosecutor in court that day.
