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.

Oh, just throw him in with all the other prisoners and let the chips fall when they may. I wouldn't spend one extra cent of tax payer money giving him extra protection.

Why wait 90 days. Let him in general population til then. Save the taxpayers some $$$ besides, he LIKES it by other MEN. Child abusers are the most hated type of prisoners among other prisoners, besides rapists. He is both.
