Jerry Sandusky, the ex-Pennsylvania State University assistant football coach convicted of sexually abusing children, was sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison, concluding a prosecution that tarnished the school’s image and led to the firing of head coach Joe Paterno.Just in case some may have forgotten, this is why he's getting what he deserves. Goodbye, and good riddance.
Sandusky, 68, appeared today before Common Pleas Court Judge John Cleland wearing an orange jumpsuit and white sneakers. The hearing in state court in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania, came almost four months after he was found guilty of abusing 10 boys over a 15 year-period. He was convicted on 45 counts.
Sandusky met the boys he abused through the Second Mile, a charity he founded for needy children. During a two-week trial in June, prosecutors portrayed him as a serial child molester who used the charity to recruit his victims, befriending them and “grooming” them with gifts, trips to Penn State football games and money.
“You abused the trust of those who trusted you,” Cleland said. “The crime is not only what you did to their bodies but the crime is your assault to their psyche and their souls.”
