Jerry Sandusky Tells Judge ‘I Did Not Do These Disgusting Acts’


Jerry Sandusky Tells Judge 'I Did Not Do These Disgusting Acts'With all eyes on him, Jerry Sandusky spoke up. And, as expected, the 68-year-old convicted child sex abuser pleaded his innocence.

Sandusky told Judge John Cleland on Tuesday that he "did not do" the "disgusting acts" in which he was convicted of, according to CBS. Sandusky addressed the judge on Tuesday prior to his sentencing, which will be 30 to 60 years in prison.

"I feel a need to talk not from arrogance but from the heart. I did not do these disgusting acts," he said. "As I began to relive everything, it was a terrible feeling and my eyes filled with tears. Maybe some children who might have been abused will not be because of the publicity. The pain continues when I think about the people who've made the allegations. I've been confined to a small room. There are outbursts in the jail.

"I told Dottie, 'We're definitely in the fourth quarter.' Those who still believe in us are the only ones who matter," he added. "Not being able to hug my grandchildren, not being able to play with the dog. Yet, I get letters of support. I see family and friends, I see special inmates who smile at me."
