Comedian Bill Cosby is in a Pennsylvania courtroom this morning for the beginning of his sentencing hearing.

A judge is determining how to punish the 81-year old after he was convicted last April of drugging and sexually assaulting a Temple University employee.

The hearing is expected to last about two days and the judge could sentence Cosby to as many as 30-years behind bars. He could also send him home on probation.

State guidelines for someone convicted with no prior crimes is one to four years in jail.
