Bill Cosby will be sentenced for his sexual assault conviction in a two-day proceeding starting on Monday, September 24, 2018.

Cosby who is 81 years old was in April, 2018 found guilty of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004.

The star of ‘The Cosby Show’ is facing up to 30 years in prison for three counts of aggravated indecent assault.

The court in Norristown, Pennsylvania, has scheduled two days for the sentencing, to give witnesses the opportunity to speak before the judge.

Cosby, who has been under house arrest since his conviction, will also be offered the chance to make a statement before judge Steven O’Neill hands him his sentence.

His lawyers have said he will appeal the conviction, which observers say could push the case up to Pennsylvania’s highest court and take several years.

More than 50 women have come forward to publicly accuse Cosby of sexual assault spanning several decades.

But Cosby’s conviction refers solely to accusations from Constand, a former employee at Temple University in Philadelphia, Cosby’s alma mater.

The comedian will be the first celebrity sentenced to prison in the #MeToo era and could be the first to go to prison.
