Jerry Sandusky

0623_jerry_sandusky_getty_2An attorney for Jerry Sandusky said Saturday his client has been placed under suicide watch for his own safety. 

Karl Rominger told CNN that Sandusky is being held in protective custody -- separate from other inmates -- as he awaits sentencing.

He explained, "The judge in this case and the warden in this case decided to take a measure not meant to suggest in any way that he is suicidal, but simply to put the precautions in place first and then evaluate later."

Sandusky was found guilty yesterday on 45 of the 48 counts against him. He will be sentenced in about 90 days.

Before you all go off half-cawked, know this.....most pedophiles were victims themselves when they were children. That is not to justify the actions of an adult who knows that what he is doing is wrong, it is just to comment that pedophilia in males is learned behaviour from being former victims.

Suicide watch will be harder on him than general population.. trust me.. inmates aren't like they use to be.. many of them are trying to get out and don't need another charge.. suicide watch: he is in a cell by himself, and only 1 hour a day out in the court yard..again by himself.. almost like torture.. in 2 weeks he will be begging to be put in gen-pop..

Good morning. Please take this day to remember victims of child abuse and neglect of all kinds.


Take a few moments to educate yourself and others on the common characteristics of child predators so that hopefully there will be fewer victims in the future. There are far more victims then those that have been exposed in public trials. They often remain silent in fear of their abusers and public opinion.


Educate yourself and educate others on the way these monsters operate because they often walk among us for years and hardly ever see the inside of a jail cell, let alone justice.

I recall it being said that he would be moved in to the sex offender unit at corrections, so I am guessing life will not be amusing there. Most sex offenders are equally manipulative and won't be terribly impressed by him.

Suicide watch is probably more of a protocol than any actual professions of wanting to end it all.

You guys are sick, I understand he had committed very bad crimes, but wishing horrible things like suicide or murder to happen to any human being is horrible. I hope he just spends the rest of his years reflecting on his actions and occasionally being taunted and
