Jerry Sandusky’s child-sexual abuse sentencing set for Oct. 9
Former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky’s sentencing for his conviction on sexual abuse has been scheduled for Oct. 9.
This morning, Judge John M. Cleland released the sentencing date and also called for a hearing to determine if Sandusky should be classified as a violent sexual predator. The sentencing will follow that hearing, the judge said.
On June 22, Sandusky was convicted on 45 charges of sexual abuse involving 10 victims. He faces a maximum term of 442 years in prison. Prosecutors are expected to seek sentences that will keep the 69-year-old in prison for the remainder of his life.
