Cosby was convicted in April on three counts of aggravated indecent assault for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his home in the suburbs of Philadelphia in 2004. Judge O'Neill has had authority over the case for three years, after police arrested Cosby in December 2015 as well as during his trial in 2017 which ended in gridlock.

Once adored by millions for his defining role on "The Cosby Show", he has been confined to his Philadelphia area mansion on a $1 million bail for almost three years, fitted with a Global Positioning System monitor and subjected to a violent sexual predator assessment after his guilty conviction. The distinction would subject Cosby to lifetime registration with state police, lifetime sex offender counseling and community notification.

The 81-year-old entertainment icon is facing a maximum of 30 years in the bing. But when prosecutors in Montgomery County asked the judge to revoke his bail because, they claimed, he has a private plane, Cosby stood up and yelled, "He doesn't have a plane, you a**hole", referring to himself.

Victoria Valentino, 75, who has accused Cosby of drugging and raping her in Los Angeles in 1969, said that the group hope he is sentenced to at least two years and one day in jail.

Cosby's lawyers oppose the testimony. Defense attorneys would be allowed to cross-examine witnesses, said Kate Delano, spokeswoman for the county prosecutor's officer.

Cosby also could address the court in an "allocution", Delano said.

"I really think it's important that he spend some time behind bars", said Lublin, who said Cosby assaulted her when she was 23 in 1989. Judge O'Neill agreed, writing in his order that in an "exhaustive review" of state case law he found nothing allowing him to consider "uncharged conduct" at the sentencing. O'Neil last week denied the motion, calling it untimely and "wholly without merit", court records show.

In a prepared statement, Camille Cosby announced she'd brought on Brian W. Perry "to facilitate my efforts to uncover the truth".
