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.

Let him kill himself, just proves he's guilty. He's nothing but an old pervert who doesn't deserve to hide behind his jail cell. If he isn't gonna kill himself than let general population make him their bitch.

Wow it's sad how many of you keep praying that he gets raped and abused...sure what he did was terrible, but wishing harm to him doesn't make you better than him. I'm sure most of you are religious, too..so why don't you practice what you preach and cut out all the violent BS...especially on a TMZ message board

Lol @ all the people wishing for him to be raped and harmed. Sure..what he did was terrible, but wishing that on anyone doesn't make you better than them. It only shows how violent you are inside coming up with **** like that. I'm sure most of you are religious so why don't you practice what you preach and cut the BS on a TMZ message board.

Now that this sorry excuse for a human being actually has to pay for what he did, now he's thinking about killing himself. Go ahead, he'll just get to HELL sooner rather than LATER.

She's baaaack    

I hope he's allowed conjugal visits so Bubba and the boys can meet up with his wife and welcome her the same way they'll be welcoming him. She's as evil as he is.
