On Friday, the judge in Jerry Sandusky’s child sex abuse case convened the court to have the verdict read. Jerry walked in looking stoic, but was heckled by at least one person on his way into the courtroom. Then, it was revealed that Jerry was convicted of 45 out of the 48 child sex abuse counts. He is currently incarcerated in the jail in Centre County, Pennsylvania as he awaits his sentencing. Judge John Cleland revealed that the former Penn State defensive coordinator would be sentenced in about 90 days.
According to Jerry’s lawyers, they plan to file a motion for appeal on the grounds that he had ineffective counsel. One of Jerry’s attorneys, Karl Rominger, said that lead defense attorney would appear as a witness in the case, if the judge allows his appeal. Karl revealed that the appellate claim would be because of how Joe Amendola spoke to the media about the case while it was still being tried.
Karl also said that he will ask the judge to give Jerry concurrent sentences with a twenty year maximum. I don’t understand why any of this matters, Jerry Sandusky is going to serve out the rest of his life, disgraced, behind bars. Don’t you agree?
