BELLEFONTE, PA – Former Penn State University Defensive Coordinator Jerry Sandusky has been sentenced to 30 – 60 years, with no opportunity for parole, after being convicted of 45 counts of child abuse.

Sandusky expressed anger when he left the Centre County Courthouse in his red prison jumpsuit and placed in the right, rear passenger seat.

On numerous occasions, Sandusky cried when he spoke to the court. During two occasions, Sandusky said that “he did not do these disgusting things”  and asked “that the victims forgive him”.

Judge John Cleland sentenced the 68 year old former coach and founder of The Second Mile youth program. The sentencing hearing began around 9:22am, that following a Megan’s Law hearing in which Sandusky was termed a Sexually Violent Predator.

The only way that Sandusky could get out of the sentence is through the appeal process. Sandusky will spend the next ten days at the Centre County Correctional Facility in Benner Township. Then, he will be transferred to the State Correctional Facility at Camp Hill.

Sandusky has made numerous attempts to proclaim his innocence. The former coach was offered a plea deal; but, did not want any part of a deal. Basically, Sandusky was going “all or nothing” in the trial.

Sandusky will receive credit for the 112 days spent in the Centre County jail.

Defense Attorney Joseph Amendola stated in a post – sentence press conference on the steps of the courthouse, that there was simply not enough time to defend properly and will be a basis for part of the appeal process.

Amendola criticized the Penn State University Board of Trustees for the firing of the late Joe Paterno and President Graham Spanier, and asked why that the previous Attorney General; now, Governor Tom Corbett didn’t have Sandusky arrested and charged in the previous investigation back in 2002.

A conspiracy theory argument that is being played out before the appeal process begins.

Lead prosecutor Joseph McGettigan stated later after Amendola ended his press conference that if Amendola would have “spent more time with his preparation instead of dealing with the press” it would have helped.
