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

According to Radar Online, while Judge Steven T. O'Neill has denied the prosecutor's request to allow "new, unheard witnesses to testify" at the sentencing, next week, he may allow the five women who testified at the trial to return. A two day-sentencing hearing begins Monday in Montgomery County.

"I really think it's important that he spend some time behind bars", Lublin told the AP. "At some point, he should acknowledge what he's done, and do the time for the crime".

Another Cosby accuser, Chelan Lasha, said he "deservs every year" of his potential 30-year sentence. She said he gave her a pill he described as an antihistamine.

Cosby and his legal team have shown that they want to mitigate the amount of damage being done to his reputation, starting with the classification of him as a "sexually violent predator".

As the disgraced TV star faces sentencing September 24 after being convicted of sexual assault against a former Temple University employee, he won't have to stand before a sea of accusers after all.

Allred said she believed the sentencing would be "sending a message" in the #MeToo era.

"Mr Cosby should not be treated differently because he is a celebrity", she said.

Lawyers for the 81-year-old, legally blind Cosby are expected to stress his age, health problems, legacy and philanthropy. Therefore, prosecutors will reportedly ask that Cosby be taken straight from court to prison.
