Jerry Sandusky

Letters from Prison

'I'm Trying to Get Better'

Convicted child rapist Jerry Sandusky says he's having a "very challenging" time behind bars but insists he's "trying to get better" ... this according to prison letters obtained by TMZ.

Just like Aaron Hernandez, Sandusky has been communicating with multiple pen pals he's made from inside his Pennsylvania prison cell over the past 9 months ... and it's clear, the 69-year-old is struggling.

"I've been quite confined, always searching for purpose," Sandusky writes ... "It is very challenging."

In the letters, -- one sent in May, another in June -- Sandusky is still playing the victim ... calling his conviction a grave injustice. He vows to continue battling the case "until the last whistle."

Sandusky also touched on his "personal battles" -- and while there's no specific reference to pedophilia -- Jerry ensures his pen pal, "I'm trying to get better."

Sandusky is currently serving a 30-60 year prison sentence for raping between 10 to 15 young boys ... and will most likely die behind bars.

Sandusky is still around? Why haven't the other inmates at his prison done their job and shut him up permanently?

He should refrain from using the word Blow.

Did you piece of garbages pay $18,000 for those letters as well, like you did for the Hernandez letter?

It is probably quite challenging for him because there are no little boys there.

He's trying to get better? funny. How will he ever know if he's better--there's no little boys for him to molest in prison.

Put the freak in the general population and let him see how it feels to be raped. Hopefully this sick f*ck will get killed in the most horrible way possible in prison.

"I pulled it to my mouth and coughed on it." Not exactly sure what he was really referring to there!

" and hopefully the other inmates can read and will believe this so they won't beat the crap out of me when I'm released to the general population."

This guy obviously has some serious issues ! I think the chances of him getting better are basically impossible ! He's a disgusting excuse of a human being !
