Former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky was sentenced today in the child sex abuse case that rocked the nation.

Judge John Cleland handed down a sentence of no less than 30 and no more than 60 years in prison for Sandusky, convicted of 45 counts of child sex abuse.

At 68, Sandusky will likely spend the rest of his life in prison, barring any appeals.

Sandusky gave a statement to Penn State student-run ComRadio, claiming he was the victim of a massive conspiracy, and maintaining his innocence, saying, ‘In my heart, I know I did not do these alleged disgusting acts.’

(Sidenote: As a one-time ComRadio member, I’m so proud of them for getting that interview!)

I’ve made my thoughts on this scandal pretty clear before.

I don’t believe there was any conspiracy here. I think Jerry Sandusky is a sick and evil man, and I hope he lives a long, miserable life in jail.

He ruined the lives of several innocent kids, tarnished the reputation of a great university, and in one fell swoop, destroyed the legacy of a once great and well-respected man.

I can only hope his victims find peace in this sentencing, and that the entire Penn State family can move on from this, and not let it ruin everything we stand for: Integrity. Honor. Respect. Tradition. Family.

Do you think Sandusky’s sentence was appropriate for his crime? Share your thoughts below.
