Judge bars parade of Bill Cosby accusers at sentencing hearing

And it could become evidence in the defamation lawsuits filed against Cosby by accusers who say he branded them liars when he denied molesting them.
The 81-year-old star of The Cosby Show was found guilty in April of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004. Cosby has arrived at a Montgomery County courthouse alongside his spokespeople, Andrew Wyatt and Ebonee Benson, ahead of a 9 a.m. hearing.
Following the popularity of the video, women came out of the woodwork to accuse Mr. Cosby of many crimes, ranging from sexual harassment, assault, all the way to drugging and raping.

Rain projections also increased, with some locations along the North Carolina coast now expected to get up to 40 inches. A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area.
But Cosby's conviction on three counts of aggravated indecent assault refers exclusively to accusations from Constand, a former employee at Temple University in Philadelphia, Cosby's alma mater. As it stands, Cosby faces up to 30 years in prison.
The final decision rests with Judge Steven O'Neill, who will impose the sentence after a hearing that could stretch across two days in Norristown, a down-at-heel town just outside Philadelphia. That means Cosby could be sentenced to probation, or to continued house arrest. The Herald has reported that Cosby's conviction for these sex crimes is sufficient for MA authorities to require him to register here if he spends four days in one month or 14 days in a year in the Bay State. Therefore, prosecutors will reportedly ask that Cosby be taken straight from court to prison.
"I do think you can draw a line between the Cosby case and where we are now", she said.
According to TMZ, Cosby will be sentenced on Monday and prosecutors want him to put behind bars immediately after his sentencing.
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.
Cosby plans to appeal against the conviction, and his lawyers will probably argue for leniency considering his age and frail health. He remained a Hollywood A-lister for much of the next half-century, hitting his peak in the 1980s with the top-rated "Cosby Show" as the warm, wisecracking dad, Dr. Cliff Huxtable.
