The 80-year-old actor’s sentencing hearing is scheduled for Sept. 24. Cosby turns 81 in July and is likely to face a sentence of up to 10 years in prison.

Cosby’s lawyers had asked to delay sentencing until December.

A jury found Cosby guilty last month on three counts of aggravated indecent assault. The jury deliberated 14 hours over two days to determine Cosby’s fate.

Following the trial, Judge Steven O’Neill confined Cosby to the same suburban Philadelphia mansion where jurors concluded he drugged and molested Temple University women’s basketball administrator Andrea Constand, ordering him to be outfitted with a GPS ankle bracelet to monitor compliance. Until sentencing, Cosby may leave his house only to meet with his lawyers or go to the doctor, and he must get permission first.

  1. Why is this the case? Surely there are sentencing guidelines that apply to these cases. Why make an exception for a multi-millionaire comic and entertainment legend?

  2. Think if I was 80 years old facing hard time for the rest of my life I’d take a handful of those ludes and just drift off.

    Bill Cosby the rapist going down.
    Bill Clinton the rapist still on the loose.

  4. Tom Hamilton says:

    pretty sure if i was convicted of the same crime id be in the joint by now

    1. William: youre one trashy deluded fuqer.
      Tom: You, I and everyone who not connected/rich.

  5. A world famous man invites you to a room after the show, offers you a drink and Quaalude-which were popular back then-and you come to the realization 45 years later that it would end in sex?
    Bull.
    Free da Cos!
    Free da Pudding!
