Bill Cosby is scheduled to be sentenced in September after being convicted of drugging and molesting former Temple University women’s basketball administrator Andrea Constand.

Cosby was found guilty of three counts of aggravated indecent assault last month. Since the verdict was handed out, Cosby has been confined to the same suburban Philadelphia mansion where he drugged and attacked Constand in 2004, with Judge Steven O’Neill ordering that he be outfitted with a GPS ankle bracelet to monitor his compliance.


As CBS notes, Cosby, who turns 81 in July, faces up to 10 years in prison for each count.

Until he is sentenced, Cosby is confined to his home unless he is meeting with his lawyers or going to the doctor. Both exceptions require that he obtain permission first.
