Jerry Sandusky was found guilty last night on 45 of the 48 counts charging him with sexual abuse against 10 boys over a 15-year period. The verdict was reached at the end of the second day of jury deliberations and came more than seven months after Sandusky was first arrested in the case that rocked Penn State, where he was a former assistant football coach, and cast a pall over the area linked so firmly to the university.
Sandusky, who is expected to be sentenced in September, plans to appeal. The judge revoked his bail and he was taken off to jail in handcuffs. If the guilty verdicts stick, Sandusky will most certainly spend the rest of his life behind bars.
