Sandusky transferred to state prison

Convicted sex offender and former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was transferred Tuesday to a prison in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, a spokeswoman for the state's Department of Corrections said.

Sandusky will be physically and mentally evaluated at State Correctional Institution at Camp Hill before he is moved again to one of the state's 25 other prisons to serve out the rest of his sentence, corrections spokeswoman Susan McNaughton told CNN.

Sandusky, 68, was convicted in June of sexually abusing 10 boys and was sentenced earlier this month to no less than 30 years and no more than 60 years in prison.

Jurors determined that Sandusky, who retired from Penn State in 1999, used his access to university facilities and his foundation for underprivileged youths to sexually abuse the boys. During the trial, the 23-year-old man identified as Victim No. 4 testified that he was 13 when Sandusky sexually abused him in a university shower.

Sandusky is appealing his conviction. He had been jailed at the Centre County Correctional facility.

      Agreed. Also PSU officials and Dottie Sandusky for covering up for pedophiles. and refusing to protect kids.

    Can a normal person do what this man did to the kids? No. This man is sick and many normal looking men are mentally sick. These people need help but our society is not open to let these people come into the open and get medical help. The society should put in place mechanisms to identify these sick people and rectify their behavior. In my opinion it is his wife who should be jailed. She is normal but never took any action to stop this crime or perhaps she was a collaborator.

    He should get along fine in jail. I mean they're all a little old for his preferences, but beggers can't be choosers.

In Most Asia or Russia this wouldnt make a Front Page . He is sick man, but I would just let him go and dont bother it . You focusing too much on people who commit Horseplay Crime rather then to catch Real Criminals . Can someone tell me why US have more then 10 Million Prisoners and US suppoused to be the Most Free Democratic Country on the Planet ? You focusing on making money rather then protecting kids , its all about money you greedy Americans

    Sandusky's wife blamed their downfall on a "Vast Conspiracy." Gee, she sounds just like HILLARY ROD-A-MAN CLINTON.
