Ex-Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky receives 30-60 year sentence for child sex abuse

Ex-Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky receives 30-60 year sentence for child sex abuse | Child abuse | Scoop.it

Via CBS News:

 

BELLEFONTE, PA. -- Jerry Sandusky was sentenced Tuesday to at least 30 years in prison — effectively a life sentence — in the child sexual abuse scandal that brought shame to Penn State and led to coach Joe Paterno's downfall.

 

Judge John Cleland sentenced him to 30 year minimum to 60 years maximum in prison. Under Pennsylvania law, Sandusky cannot be released on parole before the minimum term is up.

 

A defiant Sandusky gave a long, rambling statement in which he denied the allegations and talked about his life in prison and the pain of being away from his family.

 

The 68-year-old former Penn State assistant coach was found guilty in June of 45 counts of child sexual abuse, convicted of molesting 10 boys over a 15-year period. Witnesses said Sandusky used the charitable organization he founded for troubled children as his personal hunting ground to find and groom boys to become his victims.

 

His arrest 11 months ago, and the details that came out during his trial over the summer, transformed Sandusky's public image from a college coach who had been widely admired for his work with The Second Mile charity into that of a reviled pervert who preyed on the very youngsters who sought his help.

 

Eight of the boys he was found guilty of molesting testified at his trial, describing a range of abuse that included fondling, oral sex and anal intercourse. One of the prosecution's star witnesses, former graduate assistant Mike McQueary, testified that he saw Sandusky raping a boy in a locker room shower.

 

At today's sentencing hearing a victim impact statement from Victim #1 was read: "I have tried to think of the words that would describe how Jerry Sandusky has impacted my life. It all began with Jerry Sandusky building my trust over a long period of time. Then came the ultimate betrayal. My psychologist describes it as PTSD - I describe it as emotional agony. To the end Jerry Sandusky wanted to manipulate and abuse each of the victims. No remorse, only evil..."

In the previous article i scooped i said that 'it can happen to anybody any age" this article proves it this coach was abusing 15 year old teens and this shows that no matter what the age you can get abused.

Why didn't anyone stop him?

This has to be one of the most worst cases in history. You were looked upon as a role model but you took innocence from children.

Child abuse must stop! They deserve NO mercy for crimes of the helpless.  Every assault should be punished with the same assault to them.  Burn for burn-An eye for an eye. NO xgild should ever be beaten or abused.
