Former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky has been placed on suicide watch in jail, his lawyer said on Saturday, day after being found guilty of the serial sexual abuse of vulnerable young people.
Speaking on CNN, Sandusky's co-counsel Karl Rominger said his client was in protective custody and being kept away from other inmates as a precautionary measure, adding that there was no "immediate concerns" about Sandusky's wellbeing.
Sandusky is currently in jail awaiting sentencing for 45 counts of sexually abusing underage boys over a 15-year period. Sandusky is expected to spend the rest of his life in prison, although his attorneys have indicated that they will appeal.
Late Friday, a jury of seven women and five men returned after more than 20 hours of deliberations in the trial in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania. It found Sandusky guilty of 45 out of 48 counts, and he was taken away from the court in handcuffs.
There were dramatic scenes outside the courtroom where a large crowd of hundreds of spectators had assembled. They cheered when the verdict was announced, and someone shouted "Rot in hell' as Sandusky was put into a police car and driven away.
A mother of one of his victims said: "Nobody wins. We've all lost."

I would donate the razor blade. It’d be a dull one, but with determined work he could eventually bleed out.
Hi, Jerry. I want to play a game.
The first thing on Graham Spanier’s (Pres of PSU) to-do list after taking the reins: Instituting a homosexual agenda on campus.
Of course Sandusky’s behavior was overlooked. In fact, it was probably smiled upon.
Don't worry...he won't last long in prison.
I’d pay to watch that
Go Jerry! Go Jerry! Get your noose on! Go Jerry!
The story was, is, and always will be how/why Penn State swept this under the rug for many years. What did they know, who knew it, and when they know it?
Beg your pardon, but the creep's next victim(s) wins.
No excuse but I’d bet my life savings the same thing happened to Jerry when he was a kid. The punishment for child molestation should be life in prison because they reek havoc on our society.
I heard a lawyer guest on one of the news broadcasts say that a suicide watch would be basic protocol for the first 24 hours at least. He said this before the verdict was even announced, so I would guess that it’s standard procedure for a conviction such as this.
The Suicide Watchmen need to take a very long lunch break.
Why not share?
Set up a TickleMonsterSuicideWatch.com webcam so we can all have fun with it...start office pools. Maybe even lucky enough to see him get shanked.
I’d rather he stay alive and live a long, miserable life in prison getting raped on a daily basis.
