Jerry Sandusky

Attorney Says He Is Under Suicide Watch

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.

This fool must have really believed he would be acquitted if not why didn't he do the deed before trial...Time for a coffee break Mr. Watchman.

TMZ, and all you people on here that support homosexuality as somehow being normal or socially acceptable...this is what happens when society devolves to a point that tolerates such perverted behavior. Creeps like Sandusky inevitably take it to the next level and innocent people get hurt. You're all just as guilty as this sicko!

The perfect punishment for these monsters is general population. They should make it an automatic part of the sexual predator laws-no protective custody, no segregation. Let them live out their miserable lives as someone's bitch.

inmates already said they will tattoo "devil faces" on his hands and penis. his ******* will be tattooed with an angel face.

If I had Sandusky's lawyer, I would be contemplating suicide as well. Did you hear his speech after the verdict? The guy is out of his mind! If there's another trial, his speech could convict him alone. JESUS!

A life lived as a coward, ending in cowardice. So much easier for him to kill himself than admit what he did.

Joe Paterno should also be implicated in this. Sandusky is sick, and would never have stopped his actions until caught. And although it is great that he has now been stopped, Paterno could have ended this years ago, but chose not to, for the sake of college football trophies.
