Jerry Sandusky Sentenced

for Raping Children

Convicted child rapist Jerry Sandusky has just been sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison ... which means he'll most likely die behind bars.

The 68-year-old former Penn State assistant football coach was facing up to 400 years behind bars ... after he was convicted on 45 counts of sexual assault involving 10 to 15 boys.

Sandusky will serve NO LESS than 30 years, because under Pennsylvania law, he can't be released on parole before the minimum term is up. He will get credit for 112 days served.

Sporting a fresh pair of shackles, Sandusky wore a red prison jumpsuit to court and appeared thinner than usual. He was also wearing a bulletproof vest.

Jerry's wife Dottie was in attendance when the judge issued the sentence. Six of Sandusky's victims were also present.

Jerry also addressed the court -- and once again proclaimed his innocence during what is being described as a rambling, babbling batsh*t crazy statement.

The mother of one of the victims read a statement in court ... and said her son contemplated suicide after Sandusky's attack.

Sandusky smiled on his way into court.

Sandusky swears he's innocent -- the REAL victim in a vast conspiracy -- and vows to appeal the sentence.

His victims have been sentenced to a life sentence of having to live with the horror of what he did to them. Child rape comes cheap. He should have gotten life in general population.

The comments here prove how stupid the American public has become. Everybody is hating on Jerry Sandusky, but Woody Allen and R.Kelly have been abusing chldren for years and Woody even married his own adopted daughter, yet you all still go to his movies and dance when an R.Kelly song comes on. A bunch of ****ing hypocrites.

MICHAEL JACKSON AND JERRY SANDUSKY: TWO PEAS IN THE SAME POD


۩۞۩ஜ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ஜ۩۞۩ஜ


Michael Jackson admitted that he slept in the same bed with young boys. Although he admitted touching them, he denied having any sexual relations with his young bed partners. Jackson said he liked young boys but denied being a pedophile.


Monday night, on NBC’s new TV program, ‘Rock Center’, sportscaster Bob Costas interviewed Jerry Sandusky by telephone. Sandusky admitted that he showered together with young boys. Although he admitted touching them, he denied having any sexual relations with his young shower mates. Sandusky said he liked young boys but denied being a pedophile.


The only difference between Michael Jackson and Jerry Sandusky is that Jackson took his victims to bed while Sandusky took them to a shower. That makes Jackson and Sandusky two peas in the same pod.


Fortunately for Jackson, no one witnessed him raping young boys in the privacy of his bedroom. Unfortunately for Sandusky, at least two witnesses, a janitor and Mike McQueary observed him raping young boys in the Penn State football facility’s showers.


In Jackson’s case, only his victims were able to testify against him. That boiled down to he said, he said. In Sandusky’s case, there will be at least two outside witnesses, in addition to his victims, that will be able to testify against him.
