Accusers Lise-Lotte Lublin and Chelan Lasha, who, with Gloria Allred, spoke to the Associated Press said that they hope they will be able to read victim impact statements before Cosby is sentenced on three felony counts of aggravated indecent assault.
Cosby's conviction for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004 represented the first high-profile test of the #MeToo movement in a courtroom.
Cosby is legally blind and uses a cane, something his lawyers are certain to point out along with his achievements and philanthropy.
On Saturday, TMZ reported that authorities close to the case have expressed that such an arrangement won't cut it for those invested in seeing Cosby brought to justice and that Constand's team "will push for the disgraced comedian/felon to be immediately hauled off to prison once the judge sentences him Monday AM".
Cosby plans to appeal against the conviction, and his lawyers will probably argue for leniency considering his age and frail health. Prosecutors hope to call other accusers to paint Cosby as a sexual predator deserving of prison. At sentencing, the judge will also have to decide whether he can remain free on bail while he pursues an appeal.

If the new devices are made and sold by Amazon, they would be in direct competition with similar devices made by Sonos and Garmin. Amazon has already made a point of making it as easy as possible for developers to build their own Alexa devices .
Pennsylvania's sex-offender board has examined Cosby and recommended he be deemed a predator, concluding that he has a mental defect or personality disorder that makes him prone to criminal behavior. Defense attorneys would be allowed to cross-examine witnesses, said Kate Delano, spokeswoman for the county prosecutor's officer.
Lublin said she thinks "it's important that he spend some time behind bars". "I feel like my faith in humanity is restored". Judge O'Neill agreed, writing in his order that in an "exhaustive review" of state case law he found nothing allowing him to consider "uncharged conduct" at the sentencing. O'Neil last week denied the motion, calling it untimely and "wholly without merit", court records show.
Cosby and his wife, Camille, have spent much of the past four decades living on their secluded, wooded estate along the Deerfield River in Shelburne Falls in western MA.
Since the April verdicts, Cosby has not been permitted to leave his Pennsylvania home.
