As convicted pedophile, Jerry Sandusky runs risk of being sexually assaulted in prison
Washington Post ^ | 10,9,2012 | AP

Posted on 10/09/2012 11:21:19 AM PDT by Morgana

Because of who he is and what he’s done, Jerry Sandusky could be in particular danger of sexual assault when he is sent off to prison this week.

With thousands of inmates raped behind bars in the U.S. each year, statistics compiled by the federal government show that sex offenders are roughly two to four times more likely than other inmates to fall victim.

Sandusky, the 68-year-old former Penn State assistant football coach, will be sentenced Tuesday for sexually abusing 10 boys in a scandal that rocked the university and brought down coach Joe Paterno. Sandusky is likely to spend the rest of his life in prison.

It’s entirely possible that he will serve his time without incident. His lawyer, Joe Amendola, said he expects Sandusky will be housed with nonviolent offenders at a minimum-security prison, and the Pennsylvania Corrections Department said it is committed to the safety of all inmates, though it would not comment on what it plans to do to protect Sandusky.

But it’s also true that child molesters are reviled inside prison walls just as they are on the outside, and are often subjected to physical and verbal abuse, including sexual assault. Given the horrific nature of Sandusky’s crimes, will the public care what happens to him in prison?

I would be okay with cutting his prison sentence to just one day as long as he bunked with Christopher Scarver.

Considering he likes sex with men you would think that he would be looking forward to prison.

No tear shed for Sandusky but does anyone else see the problem with having to rely upon the prison population in order for justice to be delivered?

Yeah, see I'm gonna put "that" on my list of things I will eventually getting round to care about.

I'll slip that into the list just below: "pondering whether Hitler felt any pain when he offed himself."

Correction, he likes sex with boys...he won’t enjoy what he’s getting in prison (at least I hope not).

This old canard that child molesters are dead meat when they get to prison. Baloney. Prisons are filled with child molesters, and mostly all of them were molested themselves. Go search your sex offender websites and see how many paroled ex-cons are out there in your own neighborhoods with offenses like 'lewd acts upon a child under 14 years of age', etc. They're all over the place.

Plus, Sandusky is a queer. He'll get along just fine in prison. Give it a few years and he'll be coaching the prison football team.

I just wish everyone would stop with this notion that Sandusky's prison stay is going to be like gang rape every day. He'll probably thrive in there once he's acclimated to prison life.

JS can rot in hell, but I'd rather see it done by judicial action than his fellow criminals.

IIRC, SCI Rockview (near Bellefonte, where the trial took place) is where Pennsylvania's execution chamber is located. If justice really was served, he'd be headed there rather than protective custody, where he most likely will end up.

I don’t have much sympathy for Sandusky, but it’s a sad indictment of our prison system that this sort of thing happens.

If prisoners have unsupervised time to engage in this type of behavior, then they have time to find and exploit weaknesses in the system or otherwise generate mayhem.

I'm trying to muster up enough energy to care. Wait, I think it's time to rearrange the sock drawer while Jerry Sandusky plays “drop the soap” in the shower with Bubba. Tell us, Jerry, how does it feel to be the “wide receiver” as a guest of the PA Dept. of Corrections?

No no... he's a pedophile - - you can't mention that he's a homosexual pedophile. That's not the type of thing you can say out loud.
For example, you never see the word "homosexual" in any Sandusky stories from the Democrat "mainstream" newsrooms, do you?

Given this I don't think he'll have many problems if he keeps a low profile and doesn't piss the wrong people off. I think many of the retributive assaults tend to take place in max security joints and are committed by inmates with not much to lose.

Anyone in a minimum security prison has, by definition, quite a lot to lose as they would probably lose their comparatively plush surroundings if they staged an assault (and got caught).
