On Friday evening, former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky was convicted on 45 of 48 counts of child abuse. Sandusky will most likely spend the rest of his life in jail.
In 2001, Sandusky published an autobiography with the unfortunate title of Touched: The Jerry Sandusky Story. As of today, that book remains available on Amazon with no mention of Sandusky’s conviction, as Dan Abrams pointed out this morning. Abrams also noted the uncommonly high amounts the book is being sold for, ranging from $131-$1,111. I’ve reached out to Amazon to see if they plan on updating the listing to reflect Sandusky’s current status as a convicted child abuser.
In the meantime, enjoy this nugget: people who looked up Jerry Sandusky’s autobiography on Amazon also tend to be interested in “Daddy’s Cap Is On Backwards” and “What Does This Say?”, both collections of Bill Keane’s comic “Family Circus.”
