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.

I may be wrong, but is it a bad idea to let those sentence to life to choose death by their timing?

I am just wondering, is it a bad idea if a person is going to be sentenced to life in prison wants to take their own life? I would think right to life also means right to choose when life would end too, right.

And his LECHERY caused KIDS to contemplate suicide. Which is worse?

I don't wish him any physical harm, but I really care less what he does with himself just so long as he can't harm another child.

They need to melt down the Paterno statue and sell it as scrap. Then donate the money to some organization that helps kids. BUT NOT THAT PHONY BALONEY ONE Sandusky started.
