Cosby to fight ‘sexually violent predator’ tag at sentencing

Bill Cosby 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 actor was found guilty of sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in his home near Philadelphia in 2004.

Sentencing begins Monday and is expected to last two days.

"I really think it's important that he spend some time behind bars", said Lise-Lotte Lublin, who said Cosby assaulted her when she was 23 in 1989. "At some point, he should acknowledge what he's done, and do the time for the crime".

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. "He deserves every year".

Constand, who had gotten to know Cosby when she was managing the women's basketball team at Temple University, testified that the TV star gave her three blue pills, which caused her to pass out.

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. Five were allowed to testify, while others came to watch the court proceedings.

The trial - his second, after the jury in a first trial failed to reach a verdict - was the first of a celebrity accused of sexual assault since the beginning of the #MeToo movement. Prosecutors hope to call other accusers to paint Cosby as a sexual predator deserving of prison.

In a prepared statement, Camille Cosby announced she'd brought on Brian W. Perry "to facilitate my efforts to uncover the truth". The judge will be asked to decide whether Cosby can wait out the appeals process under house arrest - presumably depending on his lawyers to draw the process out - or go straight to jail for his felony.
