Sandusky could be sentenced on October 9

Former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky may be sentenced on October 9 after a hearing to determine if he's a sexually violent predator, according to court documents.

After a three-week trial featuring emotional and often graphic testimony from eight of the former Penn State assistant football coach's victims, a 12-person jury convicted him on 45 of 48 counts. There were convictions related to all 10 victims alleged by prosecutors, with the three not-guilty verdicts applying to three individuals.

The verdict prompted people in central Pennsylvania to breathe a sigh of relief, believing a man many called a "monster" would pay the price for his crimes and their impact on his victims, as well as the Penn State community.

Jurors did hear from eight young men who testified that as boys, Sandusky forced them to engage in sexual acts in showers in Penn State's athletics facilities, hotel rooms, the basement of his home and other places. The abuse spanned at least 15 years.

    A little touchup. 🙂
    AND Sandusky was nothing close to Joshua Carrier. The name *Carrier* will go down in infamy just like Ted Bundy, Dr. Hannibal Lector, Jason Vorhees, Chuckie, Jason Vorhees, Jerry Sandusky, various and sundry catholic leaders throughout the world, OJ Simpson, Cassie Anthony, Frankenstein, Jack the Ripper, Usama bin Laden, Timothy O'Leary, Denver's sgt. Sullivan the boy humper, and rat wang chritian fundy meth gay ted haggerty, now an insurance salesman in Colorado springs. (yawn).
    Joshua Carrier rayped no less than 88 boys, no girls, in one calener school year. A new world record.

    Let US examine exactly why boy raype and woman raype is NOT punishable by death.
    Firstly, let US table the idea that a death penalty would hinder raype. This is what's called "a given".
    Bottom line reason why I myself do not support the death penalty any longer: Crooked Judges.
    Perhaps crooked judges are not as commonplace as dr. Moneydrug MD., better safe than sorry.
    But yeah. Any decent society would make raype punishable by death. There is no doubt about this.

      Why the emphasis on BOY ra pe? Boy and WOMAN ra pe? What about all the little girls who are ra ped? They are not worth as much? They don't hurt the same? Girls have more places to be defiled, and often are. Boys are not the only ones wounded. Although you are right on one thing. DEATH is the only way to prevent recidivism.

    How often has CNN reported stories of Women raypeing just girls, never boys? See? Boy rayoe is unique in it's own right. And I myself as a severlely abused BOY young male with tight buttocks certain gay men droool for among young men nationwide have the RIGHT to speak-out against men who hump ONLY boys, never girls. Sandusky? He was a se x addict of the bi-se xual variety.

    Slayer, a person exprssing an opinion is not trashing your thread, especially when you brought up women ra pe in the first place.
    Have some consideration for other voices, too, okay?

    Every male survivor who comes forward deserve respect because they earned it the hard way.
    This does not negate your experience and this blog IS about a man whom rayped only males.
    Please to trying to stifle males when a story comes specifically about their experience.

      All I was doing was pointing out that GIRLs get ra ped, too. I am not trying to stifle anyone, but diminishing little girls that get severly abused is severly WRONG. Children are to be cherished, not tortured.

      Sorry if I interrupted the monologue.

      I had no idea that people were not supposed to comment on other people's posts!

      Have a peaceful evening.

    Mary, I am not upset. Boy ra pe and girl ra pe are equal. Even steven. Making one seemingly more devastating than the other is typical of the inequality little girls face when dealing with the systematic abuse they have had to live with. I should know. Both my brother and I were severly abused, me starting at three months old. I cannot have children, and. Have had to endure multiple surgeries to repair the damage done to me. YET, I see this all the time: boys are treated differently than girls, I had my rectum nearly torn out of me, I have permanent scarring, I endure problems every day, yet boy ra pe is more important? WHY? Because they're BOYS?
    There! Happy now? Going to still devalue me because I'm female? Go to hell.

    I believe it is Dottie Sandusky is a monster! As much as we all want to blame Jerry Sandusky, does anyone out there agree with me that child molesters cannot help themselves? They are sick individuals that need help! Is there currently an ongoing study where they can actually sample these people and figure out what is making these people think that this is acceptable behavior!? Throwing them in the slammer without extensive evaluation is not doing our future children any favors! Come on people, wake up!

    Gay statutory ra peists should go to prison just like the straight ones. Prison, not therapy. (duh)

    But yes, @marcyshops. Mrs. Sandusky was obviously aware of her husbands decades of boy ra pe and should be prosecuted as a simple Bishop who had been covering for a boy ra peing priest for decades.
