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.

Why don't they just give him the means and 'watch' him kill himself? Save the state a ton of dough on keeping his worthless ass alive~

He thinks too much of himself to do it but I'm sure there's a lifer that wouldn't mind saving the taxpayers some money.

Yeah, he is suicidal at the thought he is locked away from boys now.

Jails and prisons house sex offenders with other sex offenders. Then they get off telling each other their deviant stories. Prisons are too worried about lawsuits from failing to protect inmates. It is not like the movies or TV shows anymore.

If he don't kill himself, someone in jail probably will try! Convicts don't take kindly to child molesters!!! I'm sure he won't be in general population, well I would think not. For his safety. He will be protected, unlike all the children he abused! Ironic.

Ah, the prisoners will kill him before he kills himself.
I wanna know why these schools aren't held responsible for this stuff too. They are the ones who hire these people and let them around children.
People need a psych evaluation and undergo tons of stuff before being hired at schools.
I say Penn State is just as responsible for this as Sandusky.

I mean how old is this guy? Would you really want to live? The things they are going to do to this man cannot even be explained when he gets settled into his new home. He deserves every bit that is coming to him.

Suicide... watching to protect him. This world has gone mad. They need to put him in a pair of Dr Denton's and throw him into the general population. And throw his nasty arse wife in there with him. When are the charges coming against that beast of a woman?

Child molestors cannot be rehabilitated. Why not let him off himself so that we, the taxpayers, don't have to foot the bill for keeping him alive? While he's at it, why not give him 5 minutes with his wife so that he can strangle her complicit arse before he off's himself?

In-between getting raped, he can halp the inmates handicap football as they bet online with prison computers...

Side note...I guess the "deputy-dewsh" with the wings in the photo is trying to tell America they don't test for steroids in Pennsylvania? You know this clown was doing curls 10 minutes before Planting himself in-front of the cameras.
