Papa Jer was sentenced to not less than 30 years and not more than 60 years in prison, with credit for time served. That's significantly less than the maximum he was facing, but it probably won't matter. Judge Cleland described his decision thusly:
Sandusky, 68, would be eligible to get out of jail when he’s 98. So, his sentence is, in effect, a life sentence.
In the courtroom, Sandusky reportedly repeated “I did not do these disgusting acts.” Several victims spoke, quite colorfully, about the damage Sandusky inflicted upon them.
Sandusky's terrible lawyers will appeal– they think they weren't given enough time to prepare for the trial.
