NORRISTOWN, Pa. (WTXF) - "I'm looking forward to hearing them say so I can raise my hands in victory. 30 years and I'm going to be the proudest woman in the world," said Chelan Lasha, one of Bill Cosby's accusers. She says she wants to give a victim impact statement in court before the comedy legend learns his fate, after being convicted in a 2004 sexual assault.
Lasha spoke at Cosby second criminal trial and wants him to get the maximum 30 years behind bars.
"I pray it's 30 years. He deserves every year. We all suffered a lot and we stood up for many women and he needs every single year," Lasha explained.
She joined high-powered attorney Gloria Allred and another Cosby accuser at a Center City Philadelphia press conference one day before Cosby's sentencing proceedings begin, several months after he was convicted of drugging and molesting Andrea Constand at his home 14 years ago.
"It's important to us. It's important to the movement to change the way people think and it's a part of his case. We should be able to testify," said Lise-Lotte Lublin.
"I'm glad that they will be here to see Mr. Cosby receive the justice that is so long overdue," said Gloria Allred.
The Montgomery County courthouse is once again set up for observers, national media and even protesters, who may urge Cosby's legal team to do something.
"I think his legal team is out of options. I don't know what they're going to do at this point," said attorney Ken Rothweiler.
Fox 29 legal analyst, attorney Ken Rothweiler, is not on the Cosby case, but says the judge could show some leniency and only give 81-year-old Cosby around 8 years behind bars.
"If I was his lawyer, I would absolutely tell him, 'Mr. Cosby, you've been on tv for 30 years, the audience loves you. The cameras are going to be pointed at you in that court room. My advice to you would be remorseful and see what the judge will do in terms of your sentence, if you're remorseful,'" Rothweiler said. He added, "In the court room, everybody's going to be there. All the witnesses are going to be there. The judge is going to have a lot of pressure."
