Sandusky Sentenced Today

We have written many posts about former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky.  Having been found guilty of 45 counts relating to the sexual abuse of young boys, Sandusky was sentenced today to 30 to 60 years in prison.

Although he did not testify at his trial, Sandusky made a statement on Monday declaring his innocence.  Several of the victims made statements at the sentencing, and Judge John Cleland said that he expected Sandusky to spend the rest of his life in prison.
