Jerry Sandusky Sentenced

30 to 60 Years

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.

What I don't understand is how this pos is still able to use the Penn State Radio Station to make accusations on the victims and Penn State? I hope we continue to get the message accross to all these wicked.

While he's there still there breathing, I hope the prisoners and guards at the prison make Jerry Sandusky's life as hellish as possible. The guy totally deserves every minute of it.

When I first saw his face, Sandusky reminded me of the guy in the "Enter Sandman" video by Metallica. He looks like the guy that is creeping around in the little boy's bedroom. Sandusky is a real life Sandman monster who haunts the dreams of little kids. There are totally evil monsters in this world and Jerry is one of them. Enjoy your time in prison Jerry!

Is it a crime to write a text such as that? Or have a text such as that written for you? You can say anything you want in a situation like that? No rebuke?
