Jerry Sandusky sentenced to at least 30 years in prison
CNN ^ | October 9, 2012 | Susan Candiotti and Jason Carroll

Posted on 10/09/2012 7:51:31 AM PDT by BulletBobCo

Bellefonte, Pennsylvania (CNN) -- Former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky will likely spend the rest of his life in prison, after a judge handed down a prison sentence Tuesday for his convictions on child sexual abuse charges.

Judge John Cleland said Sandusky will face no less than 30 years and no more than 60 years, with credit for time served.

He was convicted in June of sexually abusing 10 boys over a 15-year period.

The 68-year-old had faced a maximum of 400 years in prison.

They should have dragged him out of the courthouse and executed him by flamethrower. Then they need to raze Penn State to the ground.

30 years in solitary is more like it...

Judge John Cleland said Sandusky will face no less than 3000 years in Hell and no more than an eternity, with no credit for time served.

Can’t wait for the rest of his enablers in the Pedd State admin to get a similar fate. Too bad Pedd State football wasn’t banished for a decade or so, like what happened to SMU. What a joke of a university.

I agree with you completely about Sandusky — but not about Penn State. Please keep in mind that the president of PSU — I think his name was Spanier, or some such thing — was obsessed with promoting homosexuality on campus. If a professor dared utter a word the Spanier considered “homophobic,” the professor could be summarily fired. And if a student uttered such a word, he could be sentenced to sensitivity training or dismissed from school.

So, in other words, the judge gave him 11% of the maximum sentence possible.

Interesting.

Our local newspaper said he was going to be sent to a minimal security prison, and housed in the general population.
The prison officials have said there is a concern of Sandusky being assaulted but he will not be isolated from the other inmates.
It is just a local paper, so that info may or may not be correct.
(Personally if he is, I don’t care)

I don’t know about the rest of you all, but I’m thinking the sentence handed down is a little light. 30-60 years means he’ll almost definitely get parole at some point.

Since he likes sodomy I suspect he’ll be getting his fair share for being a child molester.

As big as he is, he's more likely to give some of the other prisoners what they deserve. But I think he'll be spending his time in solitary confinement.

Spanier ran out PSU’s highly successful women’s basketball coach for being “homophobic.”

Not exactly.

Spanier had no problem with her 'no lesbians' policy as long as PSU was winning. The policy was well-known and in place for years and years - it had been the topic of a national newspaper story and an award-winning documentary.

Then, PSU lost in the first round of the NCAA to a much lower-ranked team and the coach dismissed a couple of lesbians from the team, one of who was a star player.

Questioned by the media, the PSU Athletic Department first denied that anybody had been dismissed, then said the dismissals were for lack of performance. There was a major brouhaha in the press that brought back up the old issues of 'no lesbians' that hadn't bothered Spanier. Spanier did nothing.

The faculty senate then stepped in and levied a fine on the coach. She refused to pay it and eventually resigned.

I can dig and find links to the stories if you desire - but as much as Spanier pushed the boundaries sexually, he wasn't about to rock the boat as long as the women's basketball coach was winning.

Judge John Cleland sentenced him to 30 year minimum to 60 years maximum in prison. Under Pennsylvania law, Sandusky cannot be released on parole before the minimum term is up.

Judge John Cleland said Sandusky, 68, will face no less than 30 years and no more than 60 years in prison -- meaning he is not eligible for parole for 30 years.

I've never heard of such a arbitrary sentence 30-60 Years?

So is it 31 years, 40 years, 52 years, 60 years?

No it doesn't. 30 years is the minimum of time to be served. The creep will be 98 years old before he is even eligible for parole. You think he'll last that long?

“..Pathetically, he will more than likely, enjoy the assault...”

At first glance, I don’t think so...this pervert freak seemed to like having the upper hand on helpless/weaker boys that he could easily control. He might not find being on the reverse end of the situation all that enjoyable - Especially when it’s three or more inmates beating the hell out of him while he’s being treated to a little of his own medicine.

The paper used the word ‘minimal’, maybe that’s differs from ‘minimum’.

I do not know what the differences between prisons and I do not know the answer to your question.

I thought it was amusing that the officials at the prison are concerned about his safety, yet are not going to isolate him.

Does it really matter? How many 98 year old men are held in our federal prisons?

Perhaps it doesn't matter much in this particular case, but is this the way sentences are normally handed out?

RE :”Sandusky prospects for survival are bleak.”

Isnt pedophilia a protected ‘orientation’ under the US constitution?
LGBT or ‘P’ in LGBTP ?? Maybe he can demand to be held in a juvenile detention center (JDC),

How about relationship equality?

Let's ask the WISE Latino on the bench, she knows everything.

Bring back the stockade in the public square. Put him in it for a couple days. Then, execution by public stoning.

I truly believe those sorts of punishment would eradicate his kind of behavior from our "civilized, polite" society.
