BELLEFONTE, Pa. - I’ve pretty much stayed away from the Jerry Sandusky updates because he’s everywhere already and there really wasn’t much more we could add. But some news outlets are reporting today that while he was being housed in Centre County Correctional Facility awaiting his trial, the inmates there would taunt him by singing songs to him.
As everyone knows by now, the 68-year-old tickle monster was once the assistant football coach for Penn State. He was charged with raping young boys over a 15 years period, seemingly unhindered, and possibly after once being caught with his dick in the proverbial cookie jar. His trial wrapped up the other day and the jury found him guilty of 45 of the 48 charges against him.
Sandusky is now back in Centre County Correctional Facility waiting to be sentenced and an inmate there says the last time Sandusky was visiting, the inmates taunted him by singing Pink Floyd’s Another Brick in the Wall.
“At night, we were singing ‘Hey, teacher, leave those kids alone,’ ” an inmate named “Josh” said.
Josh also said that while Sandusky was there he was held alone in a section of the jail that houses sex offenders and people with mental illnesses. Some inmates are not without television or newspaper access, however, so all the dirty details regarding Sandusky’s sexual activities was known by many of the man’s fellow inmates.
Sandusky is looking at a maximum of 442 years in prison, leading to many nights of Sandusky being lulled to sleep with soothing serenades, but he’ll likely be sentenced to 60 years. I’m not on expert on today’s human life expectancy, but I am pretty sure Sandusky will die in prison. Whether it’s from natural causes, at the hands of another inmate or, since he has been placed on suicide watch, his own hands, is anyone’s guess. Honestly? I’m ok with either one of them.Tags: Crime, Jerry Sandusky, Pedophile, Pennsylvania
