Verdict Reached in Sandusky Trial; Will be Released Momentarily
Pundit Press ^ | 6/22/12 | Aurelius

Posted on 06/22/2012 6:33:05 PM PDT by therightliveswithus

The jury in the Jerry Sandusky child molestation case has reached a verdict. The media has received a twenty-minute verdict notification, which means that the result will be announced in twenty minutes.

Jerry Sandusky is a former Assistant Coach for Penn State The high-profile began last year when almost a dozen people came out, revealing that Sandusky has molested them, which then resulted in the firing of Penn State Head Coach Joe Paterno.

Sandusky faces 48 counts against him and up to 400 years in prison. Most legal analysts have predicted that he will be found guilty on most, if not all, charges.

Several minutes before the verdict was reached, the jury asked for clarification on testimony that a janitor gave. The janitor stated that he heard that a fellow employee had witnessed Sandusky had raped a child. This, however, is hearsay because he did not witness it himself. The jury was certain how to apply this to their deliberation.

I understand your sentiment, as there's only one crime greater than an act of violence upon a child. I just don't think rape should be an approved of sanction in any case.
Let him rot with whatever consciences he has and let The Lord deal with him.

Worst outcome for a prisoner...the other prisoners all have children of their own...and many were abused also. He’ll be in seclusion or they will kill him.

Exactly. Knew someone who was in the Fed Pen and someone assumed (wrongly) that he was a pedo (because he wouldn’t answer them for what he was ‘in’ for). Got the crap beaten out of him with chairs and ended up in solitary for his remainder.

I, also, did work with the church and was in a music group who visited prisons in the UK and played for church services. We had to do a separate service for those who were....ummmmm, ‘separate’. I asked what this was about my first time and was told it was for the pedo’s, etc.

“I imagine they will have to read off all the 48 counts. Could take some time.”

Correct. It’s a long process.

Many prisoners have children and hate pedophiles. He just might get what that pedophile raping that little girl got, beaten to death.

NBC reports Sandusky stoic upon entering, heckled by one bystander outside.

Yeah, with the exception of the OJ verdict. Three hour deliberation after a massively long trial. Not guilty. Stupid jurors!

Anyone know the composition of this jury?

the Rubio interview will be replayed.

This is important that other institutions see this that they don’t also protect scum like Sandusky and for young victims to come forward and believe they weill be believed.

He literally picked up the millstone and put it around his neck. If prisoners want to get to him, they will.

I don’t approve of rape either, but Karma is another thing.

PING! Mr Webster is on the line for you. He wants your new definition of the word ‘momentarily’ for the next edition of his dictionary.
