Jerry Sandusky to be sentenced Oct. 9

Former Penn State assistant football coach Sandusky leaves the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte AP

Found guilty on 45 counts of child-sex abuse this summer, former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky will learn his ultimate fate on Oct. 9.

That’s the sentencing date set for Sandusky by Judge John Cleland, according to the AP. The sentencing will reportedly come after a hearing on whether Sandusky will be designated as a sexually violent predator, which would require lifetime registration with authorities.

Sandusky faces a maximum of 442 years in prison. Whether or not he gets all of them is irrelevant; Sandusky is practically guaranteed to spend the rest of his life behind bars.

NCAA president Mark Emmert levied severe sanctions against the Penn State football program in the wake of the Freeh report that followed Sandusky’s conviction. The report suggests that top PSU officials knew of Sandusky’s crimes, which date back to the 1990’s, and did not take proper measures to report them.

    A perverted child predator who raped and sodomized young children, leaving them with scars the rest of their lives. A child predator responsible for the biggest scandal in the history of higher education. A child predator, whose friends and associates ignored and/or rejected the pleas of those children for many years.

    May all his victims receive kind counsel and therapy and may this pervert receive the greatest judgment given by man and by God.

    That is not a human being. Put him down just like you would an animal that attacks children.

    “Sandusky is practically guaranteed to spend the rest of his life behind bars.”
    Then why is it taking so long to sentence him? Smh.

    I respect that Ben has to report this as a follow-up story, but does anyone really think this guy will ever see the light of day again? He’ll spend the rest of what’s left of his so-called life behind bars. Whether he gets “designated” as a sexually violent predator or not, truthfully, is moot. The guilty verdict already established that as fact.

    I hope the Penn State community continues to rally around the victims and provide them with the necessary counseling / therapy they need. Can’t even begin to relate to what those kids went through.

    Sandusky will tell the truth! He learn this by watching Bear Bryant do it!

    May Sandusky live the rest of his life here in hell and then graduate to the real thing.

    stairwayto7 + steeler1nation, you must be lovers. You both make me sick, and I am sure this is true to all sane minded CFT posters. You support a pervert and act like you are not sane.

    stairwayto7: I am an LSU fan but you aren’t enough of a person to wash Bear Bryant’s jockstrap. He did more in a week for people than you will do in your miserable lifetime. You are a pitiful excuse for a human being.

    Steelernation if that was a joke it wasn’t funny and Sandusky will never see general pop he will end up in solitary confinement on protective custody… 23 hr a day lockdown 45 minutes Rec 15 mins for a shower and even this sounds to good for him

    I still can’t believe this went on so long my heart goes out to the victims I can’t imagine being a victim for years and then having to relive this nightmare again when the trial was going on whatever he gets will never be enough but at least the victims as well as penn state community can finally get some closure

    steeler1nation, that’s just disgusting. You have no right to use the name of our beloved team if you are serious, and just as little if you are trying to be funny.

    Pedophilia is nothing about which to joke, and both Sandusky and you are sick f***s.

    stairwayt07, you’re just as worthless.

    At least this guy will never even lay eyes on a child again. His options are solitary until he dies, or surely get murdered by other inmates.
