Jerry Sandusky found guilty of child sex abuse and faces up to 442 years in prison
Sandusky had intended to testify on his own behalf, but late in the eight-day trial his adopted son Matt indicated to prosecutors that he had been abused. Prosecutors planned to use Matt as a rebuttal witness, and so to keep Matt from testifying, Sandusky refrained from testimony. According to his defense attorneys, he plans to appeal the court's decision.
Eight victims testified during the trial; one was present when the verdict was read.
In a statement, Penn State said, "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 full statement is available at ESPN.
