Cosby sentencing is new milestone for #MeToo movement

Bill Cosby

Victoria Valentino, 75, who has accused Cosby of drugging and raping her in Los Angeles in 1969, said that the group hope he is sentenced to at least two years and one day in jail.

Cosby, 81, was accused by Constand, 45, of drugging and assaulting her when she visited his home in Pennsylvania for career advice in 2004. A two day-sentencing hearing begins Monday in Montgomery County.

Disgraced US television icon Bill Cosby will return to a Pennsylvania court on Monday to face sentencing for sexual assault, five months after his conviction at the first celebrity trial of the #MeToo era.

Reportedly, Cosby is facing a punishment as severe as anything between thirty years of prison, or merely probation.

If so, Cosby will have to undergo monthly counseling and register as a sex offender with police for the rest of his life, rather than for just 10 years.

If the sentencing exceeds two years then Cosby will have to go to state prison, Valentino said the women would feel validated and vindicated to see him walk out of the courtroom in handcuffs.

People say you are a world class player BUT... you still have to defend like in the first game of your career. It wasn't like he finished last season, but he needed time last year and he will take time this year.

"He doesn't have a plane, you asshole!" yelled Cosby in his first public outburst and loss of control after chief prosecutor Kevin Steele claimed he could flee anywhere in the world by private jet.

The former "Cosby Show" star was convicted in April following a retrial.

"I really think it's important that he spend some time behind bars", said Lublin, who said Cosby assaulted her when she was 23 in 1989.

Prosecutors want some of Cosby's 60 other accusers to testify Monday to show that a pattern of sexual misconduct makes him a predator and a danger.

Lasha said she was a teenage aspiring actress in 1986 when she lay immobilized and unable to speak as Cosby touched her breast and rubbed himself against her leg. "At some point, he should acknowledge what he's done, and do the time for the crime". Given his advanced age and health issues, it's likely that Cosby's legal team will argue for a lesser sentence.

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.
