Sandusky Guilty On 45 Counts; Victim’s Mother: “We’ve All Lost”


After a jury found Jerry Sandusky to be a serial pedophile, the mother of the young man known as Victim 6 embraced her son. Despite the cheers outside the Centre County, Pa., Courthouse that accompanied the announcement that Sandusky was headed to prison, quite probably for the rest of his life, she couldn't celebrate, says the Harrisburg Patriot-News. “Nobody wins,” she said. “We've all lost.”

On Friday night, Sandusky lost, too. After two days of deliberations, the jury found Sandusky guilty of 45 of 48 counts of child sex abuse against 10 boys over 14 years. The 68-year-old former Penn State assistant coach left the courthouse in disgrace and handcuffs, headed to prison. His maximum sentence would exceed more than four centuries.
