Former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky has been sentenced to at least 30 years in prison. He was found guilty in June of 45 counts of child sex abuse.
FOX News Radio’s Jeff Monosso reports from outside the courthouse in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania:
Jerry Sandusky, the former assistant Penn State football coach has been sentenced to no less than 30 years in prison, with a maximum of 60 years — essentially a life sentence for the 68-year-old for molesting 10 boys over 15 years in a child sex abuse scandal that shamed Penn State University, led to the firing of late coach Joe Paterno, charges for other university officials and left people here, especially victims, scarred forever. Three of those victims held back tears as they spoke in court. Jerry Sandusky also addressed the court, once again denying all charges against him and setting up his plans for an appeal.
