Verdict Reached in Sandusky Trial; Will be Released Momentarily
Pundit Press ^ | 6/22/12 | Aurelius

Posted on 06/22/2012 6:33:05 PM PDT by therightliveswithus

The jury in the Jerry Sandusky child molestation case has reached a verdict. The media has received a twenty-minute verdict notification, which means that the result will be announced in twenty minutes.

Jerry Sandusky is a former Assistant Coach for Penn State The high-profile began last year when almost a dozen people came out, revealing that Sandusky has molested them, which then resulted in the firing of Penn State Head Coach Joe Paterno.

Sandusky faces 48 counts against him and up to 400 years in prison. Most legal analysts have predicted that he will be found guilty on most, if not all, charges.

Several minutes before the verdict was reached, the jury asked for clarification on testimony that a janitor gave. The janitor stated that he heard that a fellow employee had witnessed Sandusky had raped a child. This, however, is hearsay because he did not witness it himself. The jury was certain how to apply this to their deliberation.

Yeah, with the exception of the OJ verdict. Three hour deliberation after a massively long trial. Not guilty. Stupid jurors!

Anyone know the composition of this jury?

the Rubio interview will be replayed.

This is important that other institutions see this that they don’t also protect scum like Sandusky and for young victims to come forward and believe they weill be believed.

He literally picked up the millstone and put it around his neck. If prisoners want to get to him, they will.

I don’t approve of rape either, but Karma is another thing.

Renee Kaminsky was in courtroom; revoked bond. Sandusky taken out in handcuffs. Kaminsky, from WPXI, said sandusky looked in shock; wife Dottie cried.

Local lawyer on news said it is a life sentence he is 68 years old;!he will never leave jail. Kaminsky reporting jurors did not even look at Sandusky. Judge kept courtroom quiet...no emotional outbursts. Silent.

Not to be histrionic, here, but I have tears in my eyes for these kids and the horror they must have endured at the hands of this monster. He will be taken care of in the afterlife, I’m sure.

It wont matter. The 45 are enough to send him away for several hundred years, as I'm sure his sentences will not be run concurrently. It is not harsh enough, but I take comfort in knowing there is a special corner of hell reserved for him - where he will be anally raped for eternity in the middle of a lake of fire.

Recall thinking the same thing (Guilty) when the OJ jury came in after a short amount of time.

OJ was guilty. Problem was, the jury only saw race when justice is supposed to be blind.
