Jerry Sandusky Found Guilty on 45 of 48 Counts in Sexual Abuse Case

by

The verdict is in, and Jerry Sandusky was found guilty.

A jury found the former Penn State defensive coordinator guilty on 45 of 48 alleged counts of sexual abuse on Friday night. Sandusky was convicted of sexually abusing nine young boys both during and following his time at the University.

News of the accusations against Sandusky shocked the Penn State campus last fall, and legendary head coach Joe Paterno was forced to resign amidst the controversy.

Sandusky, 68, who was Paterno?s longtime defensive coordinator, founded a charity called the Second Mile during his time at Penn State. The charity intended to work with troubled youths, but prosecutors said Sandusky used the organization as his private hunting ground for scouting his potential victims.
