Pennsylvania’s Sexual Offenders Assessment Board recommended on Tuesday that Bill Cosby be classified as a "sexually violent predator."

Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele, whose office prosecuted the case against Cosby, asked a judge in a court filing to schedule a hearing on whether to accept the board's recommendation, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported

Cosby was convicted in April of sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, a former Temple University employee, in 2004. The trial also featured testimony from five other women who accused Cosby of sexual misconduct.


He has since been placed under house arrest until his sentencing on Sept. 24.

If the court gives Cosby the "sexually violent predator" designation, it would require the entertainer to undergo more rigorous treatment in prison and increased notification of neighbors after he is released, according to The Associated Press

The designation will also require Cosy to undergo mandatory sex offender counseling at least once a month for the rest of his life.
