In April, after a jury heard allegations from Andrea Constand, Bill Cosby was found guilty of sexual assault. The comedian, now 81-years-old, will be sentenced this week for his crimes, and the outcome will be one of three possibilities: probation, house arrest or prison.
Constand, 45, had sued Bill Cosby for drugging and molesting her in his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. When the interest in the rape allegations spread, dozens of other women came forward and accused Bill Cosby of similar crimes.
From then on the battle was a downward spiral at best.
The sentencing which will commence on Monday will possibly last for two days. The final judgment lies with the judge who will take many factors into consideration.
The legal team of Bill Cosby is expected to argue for a lesser sentence than the maximum 30 years. They will be presenting his age and other health issues as pointers for that argument.
A case in point very important to the legal team is the classification as a sexual violent predator. They want to mitigate the amount of damage being done to his reputation. Monday’s Bill Cosby sentencing is expected to begin with a debate over this classification.
