Bill Cosby Sentencing for Sexual Assault Case Set for September

Bill Cosby Sentencing for Sexual Assault Case Set for September

Convicted sexual assailant Bill Cosby will be sentenced for his crimes this fall, a Pennsylvania judge announced on Tuesday.

The date was set earlier today by Judge Steven O'Neill, though Cosby's lawyers had asked to delay sentencing until December.

Neither prosecutors nor Cosby's defense team has publicly indicated what sentences they will seek or what additional evidence they may offer to support their recommendations.

Bill Cosby will find out in September whether he'll spend time behind bars - and, if so, for how much time. The initial trial ended in a mistrial in July 2017 after the jury was unable to reach a verdict following five days of deliberations.

Forecast: Tornado watch issued as severe storms take aim
Almost 100 customers without power in Germantown are expected to have the issue fixed by 5:30 p.m., according to National Grid. But a cold front will push through the region later in the day and it could come with a round of severe thunderstorms.

Cosby was found guilty last moth of of three counts of indecent assault by a jury in a retrial that had been roughly a year and a half in the making. That's the home where jurors concluded he drugged and molested a former Temple University athletics administrator in January 2004.

The 80-year-old could get up to 10 years in prison on each of the counts.

For now, he remains confined to his Cheltenham home with a Global Positioning System ankle monitor on O'Neill's orders.
