Bill Cosby will be back in a Norristown, Pennsylvania, court Monday (Sept. 24) for sentencing on his conviction of sexual assault.
Cosby is legally blind and uses a cane, something his lawyers are certain to point out along with his achievements and philanthropy.
His lawyers have said he will appeal the conviction, which observers say could push the case up to Pennsylvania's highest court and take several years.
More than 60 other women accuse Cosby of sexual misconduct during his 50-year show business career. He was convicted in April.
On Thursday, Montgomery County Judge Stephen O'Neill denied a prosecution request to allow other accusers to testify as evidence of Cosby's alleged "uncharged criminal acts". That means Cosby could be sentenced to probation, or to continued house arrest.
Another Cosby accuser, Chelan Lasha, said he "deserves every year" of his potential 30-year sentence.
The former entertainer - once known for his starring role on The Cosby Show - has never admitted guilt.
Tom Arnold Claims ‘Apes**t’ Mark Burnett Attacked Him At Pre-Emmys Party
Arnold has been going after Burnett over his association with Trump and his hand in producing " The Apprentice " for some time. You lie your insane husband attacked me you psycho", he wrote . "I'm filing a police report & suing you for defamation".
The decision is ultimately up to Judge Steven T. O'Neill, who oversaw Cosby's 2018 retrial, as well as his mistrial a year earlier that ended in a hung jury.
As of yesterday, Cosby was not listed on the state's sex offender registry.
Whatever the sentence, Cosby is likely to be deemed a sexually violent predator and will have to undergo monthly counseling the rest of his life, in prison or out.
The order leaves open the possibility that prosecutors could call some of the five women the judge had previously allowed to testify at the April trial about their accusations.
"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 sentencing is only a few hours away.
The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they come forward publicly, which Lublin, Lasha and Constand have done.
