A sentencing hearing for disgraced comedian Bill Cosby was set to commence earlier today (Sept 24), but it was delayed.
While the comedian remained free for another day, new details about his sentencing have emerged.
According to CNN, Cosby, who originally faced up to 30 years in prison, now faces a maximum of 10 years after being found guilty of three counts of sexual assault.
The news network revealed that an agreement created between the prosecution and Cosby's defense team consolidated the 10 year sentence each of the three charges carried inton one 10 year sentence.
The prosecution reportedly insisted that Cosby received a five to 10 year sentence because he showed "no remorse" for sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004.
Despite refusing to undergo an evaluation, an expert brought on by the prosecution deemed the disgraced comedian a "sexually violent predator" due to a mental disorder that reportedly involves urges toward women unable to give consent.
In April 2018, Cosby was convicted of three counts of aggravated indecent assault for the 2004 drugging and sexual assault of Constand.

Y’all Bill Cosby going to Jail— InfamousSlimPapi (@SlimInfamous) September 25, 2018
Bill Cosby should be sent to jail just like everyone else. The fact that he abused and raped so many women is shocking. Cosby is a serial rapist. It would be an insult to all victims if he did anything less than ten years. @ABC— CJ Plourde Rangdrol (@Plourde_CJ) September 24, 2018
The fact that people really want to argue that Bill Cosby is “too frail to serve time” what the hell kind of argument is that? He’s guilty, he can go to jail.— nats (@natmangione) September 24, 2018
I hope the judge doesnt go easy on Bill Cosby. He raped women, jail is where he belongs not under house arrest.— Wile.E.Kris (@bajankris) September 24, 2018

So why is Bill Cosby the only person that been taken to trial for these alleged assaults what happen to all the white guys that were fired.— Flex Larson (@RealFlexLarson) September 25, 2018
I think it is interesting that this is the very same justice system that today is deliberating on the sentencing for Bill Cosby - an old man of color who was tried twice before he was found guilty. I can't help but see this grandstanding by Kavanaugh as white priveledge. TRY HIM!— Julie Buchy (@JulieBuchy) September 25, 2018

Bill Cosby is a legend! Fuck everyone that smears his name. Actors and Hollywood celebs have been fucking kids for years but they get to walk free? Don't pick and choose who gets the cell.— I apologize for nothing (@TheTruthSetsYo1) September 25, 2018
After all the noise, and all the dust has settled, Bill Cosby is going jail *before* Harvey Weinstein. You tell me what that means.— Benjamin E. (@simplyrenoe) September 25, 2018
