Bill Cosby

File- Bill Cosby leaves the Allegheny County Courthouse after jury selection was completed May 24th, 2017.

According to USA Today, the judge in Bill Cosby's sexual-assault case must now decide whether the comedian should be classified as a "sexually violent predator" on the recommendation of a Pennsylvania state board. The designation would require him to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life and undergo treatment.

USA Today says  findings were revealed Tuesday when Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin R. Steele filed a motion asking Judge Steven O'Neill to set a hearing where he will decide whether or not to accept the board's recommendation.

Such a recommendation signals that Cosby demonstrated a number of the traits of a sexually violent predator, which state law defines as "a person convicted of one or more of a sexually violent offenses specified in the law and who has a mental abnormality or personality disorder that makes the person likely to engage in predatory sexually violent offenses."

Cosby's sentencing date is set for September.
