Bill Cosby, seen in this file photo during his sex assault case mistrial in June 2017, was found guilty on April 26 in the retrial of the case in Montgomery County Court in Norristown.

Bill Cosby has a sentencing date.

The comedian, who was convicted of assault last month, will be sentenced over the course of two days, Sept. 24-25, according to an order signed Tuesday by Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas Judge Steven T. O'Neill. The hearings will begin at 9:30 a.m.

Cosby, who turns 81 on July 12, could spend the rest of his life in prison. His attorneys had sought a delay in sentencing until the end of the year.

Convicted by a jury on three counts of aggravated indecent assault, Cosby will likely face one combined charge carrying a standard sentence of five to 10 years in prison.
