An attorney for Jerry Sandusky said Saturday his client has been placed under suicide watch for his own safety.
Karl Rominger told CNN that Sandusky is being held in protective custody -- separate from other inmates -- as he awaits sentencing.
He explained, "The judge in this case and the warden in this case decided to take a measure not meant to suggest in any way that he is suicidal, but simply to put the precautions in place first and then evaluate later."
Sandusky was found guilty yesterday on 45 of the 48 counts against him. He will be sentenced in about 90 days.
