Sandusky: everyone but me to blame for sex crimes conviction

Jerry Sandusky, Dottie Sandusky AP

Convicted in June on more than 40 counts related to the sexual abuse of young boys, convicted serial pedophile Jerry Sandusky has long maintained his innocence on all charges, sometimes in bizarre and rambling interviews that further drove home his damning guilt and often including his attorneys.

On the eve of the sentencing phase of the process that will likely result in the former Penn State assistant football coach (rightly) spending the rest of his life behind bars, the convicted serial pedophile has decided to continue on the bizarre and rambling path.

In a statement obtained exclusively by ComRadio, Penn State’s student-radio station, the convicted serial pedophile continues to maintain his innocence and, in essence, blames his current situation on a well-orchestrated witch hunt involving, well, everyone.

You can read the entire public statement below.  You can also access the exclusive audio by clicking HERE, although I’ll warn you in advance to make sure that a garbage can or toilet or airsickness are within reach:

“I’m responding to the worst loss of my life. First, I looked at myself. Over and over, I asked why? Why didn’t we have a fair opportunity to prepare for trial? Why have so many people suffered as a result of false allegations? What’s the purpose? Maybe it will help others; some vulnerable children who could be abused, might not be because of all the publicity. That would be nice, but I’m not sure about it. I would cherish the opportunity to become a candle for others, as they have been a light for me. They could take away my life, they could make me out as a monster, they could treat me as a monster, but they can’t take away my heart. In my heart, I know I did not do these alleged disgusting acts. My wife has been my only sex partner that was after marriage. Our love continues. A young man who was dramatic a veteran accuser, and always sought attention, started everything. He was joined by a well-orchestrated effort of the media, investigators, the system, Penn State, psychologists, civil attorneys and other accusers. They won. I’ve wondered what they really won: Attention, financial gain, prestige… will all be temporary. Before you blame me, as others have, look at everything and everybody. Look at the preparation for the trial and the trial. Compare it to others. Think about what happened. Why, and who made it happen? Evaluate the accusers and their families. Realize they didn’t come out of isolation. The accusers were products of many more people and experiences than me. Look at their confidants and their honesty. Think about how easy it was for them to turn on me given the information, attention and potential perks. I never labeled or put down them or their families. I tried and I cared, then asked for the same. Please realize all came to the Second Mile because of issues. Some of those may remain. We will continue to fight. We didn’t lose the proven facts, evidence, accurate locations and times. Anything can be said. We lost to speculation and stories that were influenced by people who wanted to convict me. We must fight unfairness and consistency and dishonesty. People need to be portrayed for who they really are. We’ve not been complainers. When we couldn’t have kids, we adopted. When we didn’t have time to prepare for a trial, we still gave it our best. We will fight for another chance. We have given many second chances, and now we’ll ask for one. It will take more than our effort. Justice will have to be more than just a word; fairness more than just a dream. It will take others: somebody apolitical with the courage to listen, to think about the unfairness, to have the guts to stand up and take the road less traveled. I ask for the strength to handle everything and willingness to surrender only to God, regardless of the outcome.”

    No one should reprint anything this disgusting human being says ever again. He should just rot in the hole they are going to put him in for the rest of his disgusting life.

    WHAT THE…HUH? You’re denying it NOW? Hmm, perhaps he really wasn’t same enough to stand trial.

  4. joshm5683 says: Oct 8, 2012 8:06 PM

    For all the hoopla for tonight being the 666th NFL MNF game and Tim Tebow being involved……..I think Sandusky has a lot more to fear about 666 than Tebow does……….too bad they don’t throw Sandusky in the general population

  5. blastfurnaceknows says: Oct 8, 2012 8:18 PM

    Referring to this twisted piece of garbage as a human being is far too generous. Here’s hoping your few remaining days are without peace and filled by constant fear and uncertainty. That may at least approach the justice you so rightly deserve.

  6. thefiesty1 says: Oct 8, 2012 8:28 PM

    Death penalty. Not another word from this jerk. Prison time is too good for this guy.

  7. gatorfan1 says: Oct 8, 2012 8:40 PM

    It does not matter what he says. He was convicted by a jury of his peers and will die in prison.

    Let him live to a 100 so he can sit there for 30 years and suffer everyday behind bars.

  8. brewcrewfan54 says: Oct 8, 2012 8:45 PM

    Because Mike McQuery is an untrustworthy person Jerry? It takes a special sort of scumbag to blame everyone else. The abuse continues when he blames the victims.

    Give me a gun. I’ll be glad to finish this P.O.S off.

    Typical for a pedophile – blame the victims and remind everyone they came from broken homes so they shouldn’t be believed.

  12. reddolfan66 says: Oct 8, 2012 9:53 PM

    I hope he gets abused in prison!!!

  13. dumbpollack says: Oct 8, 2012 10:04 PM

    sounds like Michael Jackson only in a deeper voice

  14. thefiesty1 says: Oct 8, 2012 10:08 PM

    And, give his pension to his victims.

  15. tommy57 says: Oct 8, 2012 11:49 PM

    I think Jerry is having a psychotic episode and truly believes he is innocent. It’s a troubling situation that no only do the victims try to forget, so does the perpetrator.

    After tomorrow’s sentencing, Jerry will just fade away into criminal history.

    After the civil law suits are completed and the victims receive their compensation, they can then begin the healing process.

    Bill O’Brien and the football team still have several years to go.

    Mike McQueary is just as guilty as he WITNESSED IT AND DID NOTHING! Throw him in jail and blame him for not calling the Police, NOT JOE!

  17. amosalanzostagg says: Oct 9, 2012 12:04 AM

    To PSU supporters, you cannot let this piece of filth have access to an open mike. All he does is make the plaintiff attorneys more money by showing how sick this pile of jettison actually is.

  18. kozbee says: Oct 9, 2012 12:13 AM

    Since he has always like boys,when he goes to prison throw him into the gay ward then he can get what hes been putting out for years.

  19. strawhatcook says: Oct 9, 2012 12:40 AM

    Wtf? How is Joe not? He knew!!! He’s just as if not more guilty than most people that hid this!

  20. clemsonstillsucks says: Oct 9, 2012 12:48 AM

    The sooner this turd dissolves in the septic tank the better. Everytime someone smells his stench it reopens a healing wound.

    With any luck Sandusky’s future cell mate has a young son….

  21. tommy57 says: Oct 9, 2012 12:56 AM

    @ Coach Stagg

    Unfortunately, PSU supporters have no control over the media and their choice of which stories to cover. I think all PSU supporters were hoping that tomorrow’s sentencing would be the last we’d hear of Jerry, and not from Jerry. Still, after tomorrow, he’s history to all but the victims.

    The next painful chapter will be the Curley/Spanier trials and, as I suspect, their acquittal due to lack of evidence. Again, unfortunately, what is right ‘morally’ isn’t always the same as ‘legally.’

    Please end yourself Jerry

    Sandusky can rot in hell. Why didn’t Joe do anything about it? It’s more than a shame, it’s criminal. The others should be hung by their goobers.

  25. matto8929 says: Oct 9, 2012 6:37 AM

    God knows what he did. And if God is Holy and just as the Bible says he is then He’ll ultimately decide if Jerry Sandusky is innocent or guilty. It’s not too late for Jerry to ask God to show him mercy at the judgment seat. But he better ask now because he might not have much more time left.

  26. dcroz says: Oct 9, 2012 6:56 AM

    Typical behavior of a sociopath: blame everyone else for your behavior besides yourself, even going so far as to make yourself out as a martyr. Next he’ll be claiming it was the fault of someone on the grassy knoll.

    “A young man… started everything. He was joined by a well-orchestrated effort of the media, investigators, the system, Penn State, psychologists, civil attorneys and other accusers.”

    That’s right, Jerry. All these people got together, met in one room, and the topic of conversation was: how can we, as a collective group, screw over an assistant college football coach. Sounds like a fun thing to do, and since it’s the off-season, we have to find something to fill our day. What do you say guys? Everyone in? Now, if we could just pick the right assistant coach…

  28. latrobe21 says: Oct 9, 2012 8:55 AM


    STFU, asshole!!! All of us decent Penn Staters are sick of you! You caused a lot of people associated with this great university lots of anguish and embarrassment, at the least.

    You had ample opportunity to proclaim your innocence and defend yourself. I won’t say go to hell – that’s God’s decision, but we don’t ever want to hear from you ever again.

  29. mikefoxtrottango says: Oct 9, 2012 9:27 AM

    Here’s to hoping Sandusky’s cellmate has a really large penis.

  30. hatersweargreen says: Oct 9, 2012 9:29 AM

    “i hereby sentence you to life in prison, the first 30 minutes of which will be served in GenPop”

    that’ll do it. if you dont know what i mean, see what happened to Dahmer behind bars.

  31. kozbee says: Oct 9, 2012 10:22 AM

    All he is doing is acting out as a mental case so he doesnt get in with the hard times inmates lol.Jerry take along a tube of lube cause they will be line`n up for your butt.

    “I would cherish the opportunity to become a candle for others, as they have been a light for me.”

    That quote from the Beast pretty much says it all!

  35. steeler1nation says: Oct 9, 2012 1:16 PM

    Dusky blames everyone but himself. Sounds like Obama!

  36. dkhhuey says: Oct 9, 2012 5:43 PM

    General population – meet the Tickle Monster

  37. gn74 says: Oct 9, 2012 9:01 PM

    He should be burned at the stake.

  38. mook1987 says: Oct 10, 2012 12:20 PM
