Bill Cosby to be locked up immediately after Monday Sentence

Bill Cosby arrives for a pre-trial hearing at Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown PA

Cosby faces up to 10 years in prison for each of the three counts against him - but the judge could impose a longer or shorter sentence.

They filed a motion this month demanding that O'Neill recuse himself from the case before sentencing, accusing him of bias because of an alleged grudge against a former prosecutor, Bruce Castor, who previously declined to prosecute Cosby and testified at a pre-trial hearing in the current case.

"I really think it's important that he spend some time behind bars", said Lise-Lotte Lublin, who said Cosby assaulted her when she was 23 in 1989. The then-model said Cosby prodded her to take two drinks to relax.

At the end of the potentially two-day hearing, Montgomery County Judge Steven T. O'Neill could sentence Cosby to as much as 30 years in prison or send him home on probation. "He deserves every year".

He also took the opportunity to remind Middle East allies that they would " not be safe for very long " without USA protection. That equates to an increase of about 1 million bpd, but the latest figures show they are some way from achieving that target.

"He ruined my life at 17 years old", Lasha said. Five were allowed to testify, while others came to watch the court proceedings.

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

In the years since Constand first went to police in 2005, more than 60 women have accused Cosby of sexual misconduct, though none of those claims have led to criminal charges.

Cosby is legally blind and uses a cane, something his lawyers are certain to point out along with his achievements and philanthropy. At sentencing, the judge will also have to decide whether he can remain free on bail while he pursues an appeal. Constand and at least five other accusers will be at the sentencing but they will not be able to testify.
