Jerry Sandusky

Letters from Prison

'I'm Trying to Get Better'

EXCLUSIVE

0805_sandusky_letter_launch2
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.

Why is it that most people don't have any trouble believing Jerry Sandusky is a pedophile since he seemed like a normal looking guy, and Michael Jackson, who publicly had all the signs and symptoms of pedophilia, is thought by so many to be a saint? MJ travelled with young boys for years, bought them and their parents expensive gifts, had young boys sleeping in his bed and showering with them, and was rarely seen dating women and his friends and fans stuck their heads in the sand. Jerry Sandusky was believed to be guilty as soon as the first accusations were made. I guess if Jerry could moonwalk, he'd still be free instead of behind bars where he belongs.

Don't care one bit about that piece of sh*t. He just needs to be joined by all the people that helped cover it all up for all those years. Let them all be butt buddies rotting away together in jail.

"Jerry ensures his pen pal..."

He "assured" him, you idiots. Can't TMZ afford any high school graduates to write their stories? Obviously not....

I wish I'd write Jerry a letter to tell him to give his ass up and other dirty stuff to him. Jerry will never win the appeal from Supreme Court. Sick Bastard!!
