NYT NEWS ALERT: Sandusky Is Found Guilty on 45 of 48 Counts in Child Sexual Abuse Case
Via ABC News:
Former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky was found guilty today of nearly all of the allegations of child sex abuse leveled against him.
He will likely be sentenced to life in prison.
After 20 hours of sequestered deliberations, the jury of seven women and five men read dozens of “guilty” verdicts as Sandusky stood and looked at the jury with a hand in a pocket of his brown jacket.
Sandusky was found guilty on 45 of the 48 counts against him of sex abuse involving 10 boys he allegedly groomed through a charity he operated. He was led out of court by officers.
Sandusky and his lawyers, along with prosecutors, were summoned to court to hear the verdict. Assembled spectators shouted jeers such as “pervert” as Sandusky and his wife, Dottie, walked into the courthouse lit up by flash bursts.
