Former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky appeared at his sentencing hearing today to answer for his conviction on several counts of child molestation. The hearing today finally brings to a close a scandal that has rocked Penn State University and shamed many of its biggest names, including former coach and hero Joe Paterno, who turned a blind eye to the actions of his assistant coach. The abuse went on for over a decade and during the trial eight of Sandusky’s victims testified against the man who earned their trust and then took terrible advantage of it. Despite the fact that Sandusky continues to maintain his innocence the judge handed down a sentence of 30-60 years in prison and stated “That has the unmistakable impact of saying, clearly, for the rest of your life. You abused the trust of those who trusted you…The crime is not only what you did to their bodies, but your assault to their psyches and souls.” The sentencing will hopefully bring closure to those that have suffered at the hands of Sandusky over the years.
