Jerry Sandusky Sentenced To At Least 30 Years In Prison, Maintains Innocence

For the 68-year-old accused child rapist, it’s essentially a life sentence. For some, that’s not enough.

On Tuesday, Jerry Sandusky was sentenced 30-60 years in prison for the molestation of 10 boys over a 15 year-period.

Monday night, the disgraced assistant football coach coach released three minutes of audio to Penn State’s ComRadio, in which he maintained his innocence:

Sandusky’s wife attended the sentencing. So did six of his victims.

Sandusky and his lawyers plan to appeal the ruling. Under the current sentence, the 68-year-old will likely spend his life in prison. But to some, that’s not enough:

Sandusky gets "at least 30 yrs." That's not nearly enough, but plenty for some much-deserved "prison justice," I guess. http://t.co/tcswer5R

I know Sandusky is old, but 30 years is still not nearly enough.
