PROSECUTORS PUSH FOR BILL COSBY TO BE LOCKED UP AFTER SENTENCING

After sentencing today (Monday), the prosecutors in Bill Cosby’s case want him sent to jail immediately, TMZ reports.

Sentencing happens this morning. Cosby was convicted on three counts of aggravated indecent assault in April, after being charged with molesting and drugging Temple University staffer Andrea Constand in 2004. She was one of dozens of women who claimed Cosby assaulted them, but the only one whose case could be tried due to statute of limitations laws.

The sentencing is expected to take place over two days. He faces up to 10 years on each count.

RETAINING FORMER PROSECUTOR

Meanwhile, the 81-year-old disgraced comedian’s wife Camille announced that she has retained a former prosecutor, Brian W. Perry, to investigate the judge in charge of his sentencing.

Her letter comes days after Montgomery County Court Judge Steven O’Neill refused to recuse himself. She has also filed a complaint with the Judicial Conduct Board of Pennsylvania.
