Sandusky Sentenced to 30 to 60 Years in Prison

Sandusky Sentenced to 30 to 60 Years in Prison

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.

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.

Good, now they need to

Good, now they need to connect all the dots to the corruption and child sex scandal that may go into some powerful circles.

Good riddance to bad garbage.

If only the corrupt, implicit football program got sentenced to 30 years off as well. But noooo, they're being allowed to play, the fans are packing the stadium and the games are on national TV, the team's winning, and the media's now hopping on the bandwagon to lecture us about "what football really means and how it's reviving Penn State." Nauseating. Wish the NCAA could have done the right thing.

I don't play, I commission the league.

It isn't the NCAA's fault as much as it is the fault of the fans.

Can you believe that to this day, there are some people that support Paterno and his negligence?

It is this culture that winning football games is more important than basic morality.

Plan for eliminating the national debt in 10-20 years:

It's the fans' fault for monetarily supporting the scumbags...

but it's the NCAA's fault for letting this charade play out. SMU football and Kentucky basketball have been given the death penalty in the past for MUCH less than what Penn State did. The argument against it is that it devastates programs for at least a decade after the punishment ends, but if there's ever a program that deserves total destruction and rebuilding, it's Penn State football. Utter corruption all the way to the top, with JoePa intimidating whistleblowers and ignoring Sandusky's crimes for the sake of a few hollow wins.
