Former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky was found guilty on 45 of 48 counts of sexual abuse of boys for more than 15-years.
The verdict came in around 10 p.m. after deliberating for about 21 hours.
As the guilty verdicts were read, Sandusky stood slightly hunched, looking down with his hand in his pocket. His wife, Dottie, blinked back tears.
Judge John Cleland revoked Sandusky’s bail and ordered his arrest. Video showed him leaving the courthouse in handcuffs and heading into a police car destined for the Centre County jail. He didn’t say anything as got into the back seat.
Defense lawyer Joe Amendola told reporters, “The Sandusky family is very disappointed by the verdict of the jury, but we respect their verdict.”
Amendola said, “It was the expected outcome because of the overwhelming evidence against Jerry Sandusky.”
