Bill Cosby To Be Sentenced This Week

In April, Bill Cosby was convicted of three counts of assault. Now, the question remains:  Will he go to prison, and, if so, for how long?

The answers will begin to emerge Monday, when the 81-year-old comedian appears in court in Pennsylvania for his sentencing. 

Cosby could get up to 10 years in prison for each conviction, but prosecutors have indicated they are likely to ask for a lesser sentence. If he must serve time, he could be taken into custody immediately.

Monday's sentencing comes as Cosby's defense team has accused Judge Steven T. O'Neill of bias and asked him to remove himself from the case -- and to reverse an order that allowed the trial to happen in the first place.

At issue was a "nasty" personal conflict involving a prior district attorney, Bruce Castor, Cosby's team argued. 

O'Neil last week denied the motion, calling it untimely and "wholly without merit," court records show.
