Judge John Cleland will sentence Sandusky at a later date. While the precise number of years he will be sentenced remains uncertain, legal experts feel confident that he will be locked up for life. After the verdict was read, Sandusky, the Pennsylvania Pedophile, was escorted out of the Centre County Courthouse in handcuffs.
The jury, consisting of Sandusky’s Centre County, PA, neighbors, believe that he used his celebrity coaching status and position with the Second Mile charity to take advantage of at-risk kids from the area. The Pennsylvania pedophile targeted the most vulnerable children in the area over a 15-year period.
The Pennsylvania Pedophile repeatedly used his access to Penn State facilities and the football program to lure pre-adolescents into situations where they were alone and vulnerable.
Sandusky was indicted this past November, which triggered a tidal wave of public outrage. Penn State’s program is now in shambles. School president Graham Spanier and Joe Paterno, who was regarded as one of the greatest college football coaches in the history of the game, were fired. Paterno’s legacy lies in ruins. Athletic director Tim Curley and vice president Gary Schultz face criminal charges for failure to report a crime and perjury.
The State presented an air-tight case against Sandusky. Eight victims gave chilling testimony, leaving no doubt in the jury’s mind as to what kind of monster was sitting in their midst. The victims, through sobs and gasps, told the courtroom how their lives were shattered by Sandusky’s betrayal. They revealed the contents of a living nightmare. How the Pennsylvania Pedophile had molested them in Penn State locker rooms, Sandusky's basement and hotel rooms.
In stark contrast to the emotionally gut wrenching testimony given by the victims in the case, was the testimony from former Penn State assistant coach Mike McQueary. He said he walked in on Sandusky molesting a boy in the Penn State locker room showers in 2001. Additional testimony came from two Penn State janitors who said a third janitor – now suffering from dementia – saw The Pennsylvania Pedophile sodomizing a young boy in 2000.
After closing arguments were given, defense attorney Joe Amendola told reporters, "We were facing such an uphill battle. It was like climbing Mt. Everest from the base. We just tried to get to an even playing field."
Fortunately for the victims justice was served..
