Day One of Bill Cosby’s sentencing hearing is over, and if things go well for Bill, he's looking at no more than three years in jail. He originally faced 30 years after being convicted on three counts of aggravated indecent assault for allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand.
Apparently Montgomery County, Pennsylvania Judge Steven O’Neill and the Montgomery County District Attorney got together on a deal to combine the three counts into one. That means that he could get up to ten years, which is what prosecutors want. Cosby's attorneys are pressing for no jail time - and asking for house arrest. "Mr. Cosby is not dangerous," his attorney offered in court. "Eighty-one-year-old blind men who are not self-sufficient are not a danger, unless perhaps to themselves."
But between the state guidelines and their wiggle room, he’ll probably get somewhere between 22 to 36 months in jail - plus or minus 12 months. Either way, it's expected that the sentencing will be completed during today’s hearing.
