Transcript for Jerry Sandusky Insists Innocence Before Sentencing
Let's get right to jerry sandusky. He's speaking out before his sentencing this morning, convicted on 45 counts of sexual abuse. Sandusky still insists he's innocent. Abc's jim avila has been covering this story from the start. He's outside the pennsylvania courtroom, where sandusky will appear later today. Good morning, jim. Reporter: Good morning, george. We expect from his attorneys and also from his public statement last night that jerry sandusky will be defiant and also unapologetic this morning. And now, abc news has obtained a portion of what one of his victims is expected to tell the judge. From victim 5 this morning, i hope and pray when your honor sentences mr. Sandusky, you consider the real harm he's done to me and others and take into account the tears, the pain and anguish that I and others have suffered. Clearly, this will not be an ordinary sentencing. I'm responding to the worst loss of my life. Reporter: Jerry sandusky, firing back for the first time since he was found guilty of 45 counts of sexual abuse against children. The former penn state coach, now says he didn't get a fair trial. Says he has been unjustly treated like a monster. In a statement released to the university radio station late monday, calls one of his victims a veteran accuser, seeking attention. In my heart, I know that i did not do these alleged disgusting acts. My wife has been my only sex partner. And that was after marriage. Reporter: Later today, sandusky is expected to deliver a similarly defiant statement before the judge who holds his life in his hands. Refusing to apologize or admit any guilt. We didn't lose to proven facts, evidence, accurate locations and times. Reporter: Abc news has learned that facing sandusky today will be at least one, and as many as six, of his ten victims. It is preposterous to suggest that ten separate victims, their families, their parents, their lawyers, the prosecutors, the press, and everyone else con conspired to somehow convict mr. Sandusky. Reporter: Even sandusky's own attorneys expect a harsh sentence. And they're concerned his words may do him more harm than good. The accusers were products of many more people and experiences than me. Look at their confidants and their honesty. Think about how easy it was for them to turn on me. It will be his natural life in jail. Reporter: And for a 68-year-old man, it will not be an easy life. No one's going to respect him. He's not going to have any friends. He's going to have a rough ride. And he's going to be isolated from the general population. Reporter: By showing no remorse, sandusky is, in fact, risking angering the judge, a judge who could sentence him to up to 400 years in prison.
