Bill Cosby's sentencing for aggravated indecent assault begins today

Actor and comedian Bill Cosby arrives at the Montgomery County Courthouse for sentencing in his sexual assault trial in Norristown

The questions have been looming since Bill Cosby was convicted in April of three counts of assault: Will he go to prison, and, if so, for how long?

Cosby was the first celebrity to go to trial in the #MeToo era and could be the first to go to prison - perhaps for the rest of his days - after being convicted in April of drugging and sexually assaulting former Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004.

State sentencing guidelines, which are not mandatory, recommend a sentence between two and four years, Chanenson said.

Lasha said she prays he gets a 30-year-sentence. Judge O'Neill has had authority over the case for three years, after police arrested Cosby in December 2015 as well as during his trial in 2017 which ended in gridlock.

Over several decades, he has been accused of assaulting over 60 women.

Some legal experts have said they don't think Cosby will spend any time behind bars.

Trump's latest tariffs on China begin to bite
Beijing and Washington are locked in a festering trade war with both sides hitting each other's goods with tariffs worth billions. Some analysts say there is also a risk that China could allow its currency to weaken again to cushion the blow to its exporters.

According to NBC News, "Cosby's lawyers opposed the request for additional accusers to testify at the sentencing hearing".

Prosecutors said they would "present numerous witnesses who will testify that defendant sexually abused them" and argued those "uncharged crimes" were relevant to establishing Cosby's character and as a danger to the community.

It's unclear if the judge, in weighing the predator label, will consider the dozens of other Cosby accusers who have gone public or his deposition in the trial victim's 2006 lawsuit, when Cosby acknowledged getting quaaludes to give women before sex and said he often gave young women alcohol but didn't drink or take drugs himself because he liked to stay in control.

Many see his arrest and subsequent conviction earlier this year as a high-profile legacy of the #MeToo movement - which has seen people across the world come forward to share their stories of sexual harassment and sexual assault.

Cosby is due in court for a two-day sentencing hearing beginning on Monday, where Judge Steven O'Neill will decide his fate at the Montgomery county courthouse in Norristown, Pennsylvania.

Bill Cosby is about to face sentencing.
