Blog Photo - Jerry Sandusky sentenced to 30 years in prison for child sex abuse chargesJerry Sandusky has been sentenced to at least 30 years in prison for child sex abuse crimes that he committed while running the Second Mile Foundation at Penn State.

Yesterday, Sandusky issued a statement proclaiming his innocence, saying that the entire scandal was simply a vast conspiracy.

"They can take away my life; they can make me out as a monster; they can treat me as a monster, but they can't take away my heart. ... A young man who is dramatic and 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've won. I've wondered what they've really won. Attention, financial gain, prestige will all be temporary."

I'd love to know exactly how he thinks Penn State won. Their football program, which was their cash cow for decades, is in shambles. Their greatest icon has been reduced to a pariah in the eyes of many. Their once spotless reputation is forever tainted. But somehow they won, because they managed to lock up a former coach? I fail to see the logic there. If Sandusky was truly innocent, what reason would Penn State have to want him to be incarcerated?

Sandusky was seen smirking during his sentencing, and the judge stressed that his defiance and insistence that he had done nothing wrong was proof that he was still a threat.

Hopefully this is the last we'll hear about this monster until he dies.

I cheered when I heard this news today at work.  Many co-workers didn't know who he was (I'm Canadian, remember?) but those who did cheered right along with me.  Sick bastard is just where he needs to be.

That audio statement/interview he released from prison was repugnant.
