Today Jerry Sandusky was sentenced to 30-60 years in prison for the Penn State sexual abuse case. Sandusky was facing up to 400 years in prison after being found guilty for sexually abuse 10 young men. The judge has many comments for the sexual predator.
According to ABC News,
“I’m not going to sentence you to centuries,” Judge John Cleland said at the sentencing hearing. “It makes no sense for a 68-year-old man. This sentence will put you in prison for the rest of your life.”
Sandusky will be 98 years old when he would be eligible to be released from prison. The way people are living nowadays, we don’t expect him to live that long. Security for Sandusky will be a issue to prevent anyone inside to harm him. Right now authorities are working it out now.
In a statement released from Sandusky on his time lock up so far, he said,
“Somehow, some way, something good will come out of this. These are people I cared about, still do. I used to think of ways to praise them, to help them have fun.”
“To my loved ones I want to say, the most difficult part is the pain of separation. Some of the labeling hurts but they don’t compare to the pain of their absence,” he said.
