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.

Hopefully the guards turn a blind eye when the other prisoners have their way with him...just like his wife and the team coaches and administrators did when he scarred those innocent boys for life.

Why a suicide watch? Wouldn't that be the very best outcome? Grab a belt Sandusky. Grab a shoelace, hell, wad up a tissue and INHALE. I'd pay to see pictures of this prick, blue, and swinging. There are a great many young people that this man affected. Young people who will never become the people they were meant to be because their paths crossed with this waste of space.

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!
