Breaking: Sandusky guilty on 45 of 48 counts

posted at 10:16 pm on June 22, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

Is anyone surprised?  Even the attorney for former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky said he’d probably have a heart attack if Sandusky beat the rap:

A jury deliberated into the night Friday the fate of Jerry Sandusky, even as the former Penn State assistant football coach’s lawyer said he might “die of a heart attack” in shock if his client is acquitted on all 48 counts related to child sexual abuse.

Joe Amendola made the comments while surrounded by a pack of reporters early Friday evening in the Centre County courtroom. One asked the lawyer — who also talked about the “daunting” challenge of defending Sandusky — if he would be “shocked” if his client was cleared on all charges.

“Shocked? I’ll probably die of a heart attack,” Amendola said.

Word is already out via Twitter, but no media reports yet.

Updates to follow ….

Update: CNN has its story up now:

Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was found guilty on Friday night on 45 of 48 counts related to sexual abuse of boys over a 15-year period.

Jurors delivered the verdict around 10 p.m. after deliberating for about 21 hours.

That’s just under a half-hour on each guilty count.  Doesn’t sound like the jury had any doubts, only a horribly large workload.  Sandusky’s bail was immediately revoked and he went straight into custody, and it’s doubtful that he will ever breathe free air again.

Update II: Sentencing will take place at some undetermined point in the future:

Sandusky will be sentenced at a later date by Judge John Cleland. The precise number of years he faces in prison is unclear, but legal experts say it should be enough to lock the 68-year-old away for life. …

The state presented an overwhelming case against Sandusky. It was highlighted by powerful personal testimony from eight victims who detailed, often through sobs and gasps of breath, how Sandusky molested them in Penn State locker rooms, Sandusky’s basement and hotel rooms.

Sandusky often used his access to Penn State facilities and the football program to lure pre-adolescents into situations where they were alone and the kids were vulnerable.

If he gets less than 40 years, I’d be shocked.

Update III: I changed the front page picture to the one of Sandusky being taken to prison.

No, not at all surprised.

Obviously, Sandusky is stuck in some psychosis that I doubt anything is going to get him out of and he represents an ongoing danger to society because of it.

Him in jail, however, is not going to alter his course but likely just make him more insane than he is already, unless he’s put under solitary lock and key.

But it’s too much t.v. coverage of “Sandusky.” No one expected he’d be acquitted — evidence is too extensive, certainly overwhelmingly damning — and all this talk about the whos and whats of the trials are really a bog.

Most people know he’s guilty and has been for his entire lifetime. Put the guy away, keep him away from children for the rest of his natural life.

Lourdes on June 22, 2012 at 10:53 PM

Yes. Each victim who came forth and testified about their abuses at Sandusky’s cause and action should feel very proud of themselves tonight, if not already for testifying.

To those who didn’t, that’s OK, too, but it’s wrong to keep it to yourself and to suffer the memories instead.

I’ve heard that “they’ll never believe you” before from sexual and sadistic predators and all victims of theirs have to rely on the truth of the truth, that, the truth will eventually come out. It always does, it always will. Never blame yourself but learn to understand what steps led you to be available to victimizers and avoid them in the future.

Lourdes on June 22, 2012 at 10:59 PM

Because of my status as a Penn State football fan, this whole thing hit me like a ton of bricks last November when it was first announced.

If you would have asked me one year ago what I think of Jerry Sandusky, I would have said he was a great assistant coach to Joe Paterno, and I wish he hadn’t left the coaching job. And I would have added that he is a wonderful humanitarian with his “Second Mile” charity organization.

So complete was his camouflage that I (and others) suspected nothing perverse about the man we all saw as Joe Paterno’s “heir apparent” for the job of Head Coach at Penn State when the time would come for Joe to step down.

I was “disillusioned” last fall when the allegations were announced, and evidence began to mount. I still wanted to believe that there was some kind of “conspiracy” out to get money from Jerry.
It was the Mike McQueary testimony of catching Jerry in the shower raping a young boy that completed my disillusionment, and proved beyond any doubt that this was for real.

As a “blinded” Penn State fan, am I guilty of complicity by allowing Jerry Sandusky to hide beneath the “cover” of humanitarian? Some of us will spend the rest of our lives wondering just that. How could we have let something like this continue under our very noses without suspecting a thing?
Was Jerry just “that good” at being clandestine? Or were we too blinded by Penn State loyalty to see the obvious?

I’m sure there will be more sordid details divulged for public consumption over the next several months now that Jerry’s trial is over. Maybe I’ll find something within these details as they come out to assure myself that Penn State fans didn’t aid & abet Jerry Sandusky in perpetrating these (expletive) acts upon the young and innocent.

listens2glenn on June 22, 2012 at 11:00 PM

Prison rape was invented for people like him. If there were any justice int he world his victims would be entitled to watch his prison reception on closed circuit television any time they needed a pick-me-up. Maybe they could even take turns choosing his cellmates.

Penn State: Legal process has spoken, we have tremendous respect for men who came forward – statement

=========================================

Jun 22, 2012

Penn State releases statement on Sandusky trial:
************************************************

Today Penn State learned that a verdict was reached in the case of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania v. Gerald Sandusky. Mr. Sandusky was found guilty of 45 of the 48 charges filed against him.

The legal process has spoken and we have tremendous respect for the men who came forward to tell their stories publicly. No verdict can undo the pain and suffering caused by Mr. Sandusky, but we do hope this judgment helps the victims and their families along their path to healing.

The Board of Trustees and current administration maintain a steadfast commitment to pursuing the truth regarding Mr. Sandusky’s actions. While we cannot change what happened, we can and do accept the responsibility to take action on the societal issue of child sexual abuse—both in our community and beyond. The University is committed to ensuring that our campuses are safe for children and to being a constructive participant in building greater awareness of child sexual abuse and the practical steps that can be undertaken to prevent, report and respond to such abuse.

The University has already established a confidential counseling process for victims of Mr. Sandusky’s conduct, and that process remains open. (For further information, please visit http://live.psu.edu/story/58590.) While counseling is critical, some victims have sought and continue to seek a direct dialogue with the University to discuss the University’s responsibility for Mr. Sandusky’s actions

Now that the jury has spoken, the University wants to continue that dialogue and do its part to help victims continue their path forward. To that end, the University plans to invite victims of Mr. Sandusky’s abuse to participate in a program to facilitate the resolution of claims against the University arising out of Mr. Sandusky’s conduct. The purpose of the program is simple – the University wants to provide a forum where the University can privately, expeditiously and fairly address the victims’ concerns and compensate them for claims relating to the University. Counsel to the University plan to reach out to counsel to the victims of Mr. Sandusky’s abuse in the near future with additional details.

PatriotGal2257 on June 22, 2012 at 10:58 PM

Yes, I’ve witnessed that degree of denial before. People only understand what they themselves firsthand experience, or at least, it seems that’s the most average response to abnormal acts by other human beings.

I’ve seen utterly deranged violence immediately compose itself momnents after harming someone and while the victim is then showing awful emotions (pain, horror, shock, disgust, etc.), the victimizer is calm, composed, able to show dismay to someone who soon appears and deny all statements being “screamed about them” and such.

People often can’t recognize that the “normal response” to some events IS to be upset and not to be calm and cool as a cucumber.

In a better world, a creep like this would get the death penalty. No one will ever convince me that isn’t the appropriate punishment. Shame on the U.S Supreme Court and Justice Kennedy for banning that option in all such cases.

And no, he is not going to spend his days thinking about the harm he has caused. That isn’t how the mind of a sicko like this works in reality. He won’t enjoy prison and may have regrets for that reason, but that isn’t the same thing and we shouldn’t pretend otherwise.

Yeah, I get that. I wasn’t repulsed by it; rather, it just seemed like the wrong response given the circumstances. And it looked like a lot of young people outside the courtroom so maybe that was the source of the cheering.

But still…

As a “blinded” Penn State fan, am I guilty of complicity by allowing Jerry Sandusky to hide beneath the “cover” of humanitarian? Some of us will spend the rest of our lives wondering just that. How could we have let something like this continue under our very noses without suspecting a thing?
Was Jerry just “that good” at being clandestine? Or were we too blinded by Penn State loyalty to see the obvious?

I’m sure there will be more sordid details divulged for public consumption over the next several months now that Jerry’s trial is over. Maybe I’ll find something within these details as they come out to assure myself that Penn State fans didn’t aid & abet Jerry Sandusky in perpetrating these (expletive) acts upon the young and innocent.

You are an outsider. How can you know what someone really thinks if you aren’t witnessing their daily activities or seeing them in their “natural habitat and state”?

He seems to have been a good actor and on a superficial level how is anyone to know what we really think or do if we really want to hide it?

All you are guilty of, if you wish to be guilty of anything, is to take him at face value until you learned differently. When you did you reassessed. Nothing wrong with that.

Now if you were a relative or a very close friend, perhaps…

Ruh-roh. I hope PA’s governor didn’t turn a blind eye when he was PA’s AG.

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/11/11/sports/ncaafootball/tom-corbett-pennsylvania-governor-couldnt-discuss-inquiry.html?_r=1&pagewanted=all

I don’t think he did. He began the investigation in 2009, and once he became governor, the next AG finished it.

Mr. Noonan, who remained involved because the governor had appointed him state police commissioner, was one of the few people in his administration in the know.

“He’d ask me, ‘How is it going?’ and I’d say, ‘Good, it’s going well,’ though I couldn’t share any details with him,” Mr. Noonan recalled. “I know that this case was always on his mind and that he’s been waiting for it.”

They’re definitely guilty of aiding and abetting.

Any new details that are divulged from their legal proceedings should be of great interest to us loyal Penn Staters.

What was their motive?

If it was the idea that “sweeping it under the rug” would save the college, thus their careers as well, then they failed BIG.

BKeyser on June 22, 2012 at 11:23 PM

Well, sometimes you just gotta’ cheer when something that awful is justified as awful by society.

Sandusky is obviously a mentally ill person. But it makes the most sense when people that sick are agreed upon to be kept away from possible victims for evermore. I think more than anything, that last part was what people were cheering.

Not the answer…

Prison rape was invented for people like him. If there were any justice int he world his victims would be entitled to watch his prison reception on closed circuit television any time they needed a pick-me-up. Maybe they could even take turns choosing his cellmates.

Seven Percent Solution on June 22, 2012 at 11:32 PM

Penn State may well be finished in its present form. At the least, they will flush all high officials out of there. Two perjury counts are pending against two officials as I type this, and Freeh has emails that suggest a conspiracy to cover up. If so, then the statute of limitations has not even begun to run so Penn State (and the Commonwealth) would be on the hook for as far back as when they hired Sandusky.

Obviously, the state cannot go bankrupt but Penn State sure can and its alumni trust fund can be emptied. Is it too big to fail? Probably but this is a situation in which the best thing might be to let a private college like Hillsdale take it over.

Everybody on the board of Second Mile Foundation is in jeopardy of criminal charges and several of them probably will be indicted. All of Sandusky’s personal wealth will be taken and his wife will be lucky if she isn’t stripped of her share as well (community property). Same holds true for anybody who knew of the allegations and failed to follow state law reporting requirements.

This is only the start.
