BELLEFONTE, CENTRE COUNTY, PA -- Jerry Sandusky, former Penn State football defensive coordinator, has been convicted of 45 out of 48 counts of child molestation and related charges. Bail has been revoked, and his request for house arrest was denied.
Jurors deliberated for nearly 21 hours before returning the verdicts. Sandusky remained stoic during the reading of the verdict and was cooperative as police handcuffed him and took him away to the Centre County Jail. He will remain there until his sentencing.
Sandusky was accused of molesting several boys over the course of a decade, most of whom he met through the Second Mile charity he founded.
Sandusky's attorney, Joe Amendola, says the Sandusky family is very disappointed but respects the jury's decision. Amendola says they will appeal.
