Jerry Sandusky wants people to know that hes not guilty, a lawyer for the retired Penn State assistant football coach said Monday.
Sanduskyonce considered Hall of Fame coach Joe Paternos heir apparentwas convicted Friday of 45 counts for sexually abusing 10 boys over 15 years.
Karl Rominger, who helped defend the 68-year-old retired defensive coach, visited him at the Centre County jail, where he is being kept under observation and away from other inmates pending a psychological review that will help determine the next step toward his sentencing, which is in about three months.
Hes defiant and wants the truth to be told. He wants people to know that hes not guilty, Rominger said. That would be his hope.
Also Monday, Judge John Cleland ordered county probation officers to evaluate whether Sandusky is a sexual predator, a finding that could be a factor in his prison placement. Such orders are pro forma in sex abuse cases. Sex offenders are required to undergo treatment while in prison, so Sandusky, if deemed a predator, would likely be sent to a facility with such a program.
Rominger told The Associated Press that Sandusky said hes not suicidal and that he wants to get the separate psychological examination done so that he can receive visits from his friends and family.

We never doubted it a minute, Jerry...
Uh, that’s sorta why we have trials, isn’t it?
Jerry Sandusky wants people to know hes not guilty
Jerry, Jerry . . . BOHICA (bend over, here it comes again). Enjoy. I hope it was good for you, sweetie. Kiss, kiss.
A jury of 12 said otherwise 45 times, Jerry.
I am sure there are several young anus’s that would call that a lie. Hopefully Jerry will be in a very small cell with a very large Bubba or two.
Too late for that now, Jerry....
If your defense lawyer couldn’t make the case for you at the trial, then there is probably little recourse.
Seeya in about three centuries. But who knows, you may still win pardon, or at least a commutation of the sentence, long before then.
Or there may be an error in the findings of the court, and you get turned loose on a technicality.
You STILL ain’t gonna get to coach again at Penn State.
You just keep tellin’ yourself that, Jerry.
Not guilty because what he did wasn’t wrong?
What about the Penn State guys that failed to report him? Next.
Jerry must be a Democrat. He lost on 45 of 48 counts, and thinks folks will change their minds if only ‘the truth’ gets out. In fact he’s claiming innocence. Now there’s a Democrat for ya...
Disbelieving ten different people requires a tremendous amount of doubt. And then there's his adopted son.
Getting a jury to be unanimous on 45 out of 48 counts isn't easy either.
I wonder how long it will take this guy to go the pity route and tell of the guy who molested HIM all those years ago (whether or not it happened)?
Wife came home with a small Sandusky joke last night.
Sandusky was found guilty and has gone from Penn State to the State Pen.

I would think other heads would roll.
Penn State to State Pen.
Gee,that would be new....a prisoner who was unjustly convicted.
It’s over for Jerry, now it begins to be about Penn State. Goodbye Jerry, you slithering scum. May the rest of the slithering scum that enabled you find themselves in jail staring at you everyday.
I believe that is at least as old a vaudeville.
