Jerry Sandusky

Letters from Prison

'I'm Trying to Get Better'

8/6/2013 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Every time I think we've heard the last of him, some new communication from him comes out, complete with a sports metaphor. He is a child molester, and no other child molester in this country gets as much attention. He should really get no attention at all.

This perv is beyond contempt, do we have to keep seeing his photo? Just seeing him makes my skin crawl. To quote Bette Davis in the "Little Foxes"
"I hope you die! I hope you die soon!"

His victims will be trying to get better all their lives. He needs to relax & stop kidding himself. He's lucky he has the privilege of the tqx payer feeding him and giving him a home for the rest of his life.

Sandusky was convicted beyond a reasonable doubt; HOWEVER he was not convicted beyond a shadow of doubt. The only alleged act where there was a witness, Sandusky was judged not guilty. There was no physical evidence like soiled underwear. There was similar stories that might have been rehearsed. Sandusky is sick and he likes to play with kids, but did he have sex with any? Only Sandusky and the alleged victims know for sure.

Awww my heart bleeds for you Jerry. But when I said I hope you rot in prison, I really did mean it. I sincerely hope your prison life gets more "challenging" as each day goes by and I want you to reflect on that as karma for what you did to those poor kids.

If Jerry was right by me, I'd punch his teeth out, and spit in his old saggy face. Baby raper!
