Former Penn State coach, Jerry Sandusky, was found guilty on 45 of 48 counts of sexual abuse yesterday in a Pennsylvania courtroom.
Sandusky, who had plead not guilty to the charges was given the decision after jurors deliberated for about 20 hours. They brought convictions related to all 10 sexual abuse victims, with the three not-guilty verdicts applying to three different individuals.
Following the verdict, the judge revoked Sandusky’s bail and ordered his arrest. “No verdict can undo the pain and suffering caused by Mr. Sandusky, but we do hope this judgment helps the victims and their families along their path to healing,” Penn State said in a statement. The University has invited all the victims to attend a program to discuss changes, solutions and preventative steps from tragic events like this happening again.
