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.
if I've told you once, I've told you ten trillion times - don't exaggerate. ;)
What 3 of 48 horrible things was he NOT convicted on?
Whoopi doesn’t think it was ped-ped.
Found guilty of 45 out of 48 charges
Pretty quick trial and short deliberation. Guess Sandusky’s going away.
Check this out - the starter of this very thread started a new duplicate thread!
Bail revoked! He is looking at a 400+ year sentence in the state pen and an eternity in Hell.
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.
WAAAAAAH! Who’s going to train those athletes?
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.
Lol. Well a sigh and the proverbial “good grief”.
Renee Kaminsky said 500+ years MINIMUM sentence on all those counts.
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.
We’ve got scumbags ...
It will be instructive if this monster appeals ... evil wants it’s full measure don’tchaknow.
**and an eternity in Hell.**
What if he repents, is forgiven bu God?
Are you God that you can make such a statment?
OJ was guilty. Problem was, the jury only saw race when justice is supposed to be blind.
I’ve known a few homoes at home. None of them was a monster like this monster.
Thanks for the reminder, Salvation.
