Jerry Sandusky Gets 30 to 60 Years for Sex Abuse After Tearful Victim Statements


"You can chose to be in denial about everything you have done, (but) you are only fooling yourself," said the man identified as Victim 6. "It is time to stop coming up with excuses for your behavior. If you admit your guilt to God, he will forgive you. If you don't, you won't be able to receive forgiveness."

"You took something from him that can never be replaced," the statement from Victim 9's mother read. "Sorry will never be enough. There is no punishment sufficient for you. When you admit your wrongdoing, maybe, maybe you will be forgiven. "

The victims who testified at Sandusky's June trial said that he touched them and forced them to engage in sex acts at the Penn State locker room showers and in his home.

Penn State University president Graham Spanier, who lost his job, athletic director Tim Curley and vice president for finance Gary Schultz were charged with perjury and failure to report child abuse for their knowledge of the crimes.

Head coach Joe Paterno died in January, saying that he wished he had done more with his knowledge of the crimes, while Spanier, Curley, and Schultz, have maintained their innocence.
