Sandusky innocent?

Forty-five counts of child abuse. Fifteen years of sexual abuse. Rape. Molestation. Sodomy.

All of these describe one of the most disturbing and disgusting cases in recent history: the Jerry Sandusky child sex scandal.

Despite being convicted of molesting children through his Second Mile charity, the former Penn State football coach continues to deny his guilt and blames a hasty legal process for his current predicament. In Sandusky’s estimation, this never would have happened if his defense were allowed adequate time to prepare for trial.

Sandusky even claims that his only sexual partner was his wife, Dottie, and that was only after marriage.

How is this level of denial even possible in a case like this?

Sandusky was found guilty of 45 counts of child sexual abuse and started a chain of events that included the firing of legendary Penn State coach Joe Paterno, effectively negating his many athletic achievements. Granted, Paterno and a number of school administrators were terminated for failing to take action after learning of Sandusky’s crimes, but none of it would have been necessary if Sandusky weren’t guilty of committing them in the first place.

Of course, Sandusky faces sentencing tomorrow and will likely do anything he can, however desperate, to try to save either his ass or his reputation. And as much as I hate to say it, I’m afraid it’s much too late to save either of them.

Enjoy prison, Mr. Sandusky. And may every passing day remind you of the hurt you inflicted on these poor, unsuspecting children.

  1. Let’s hope the guys in prison get him.Poetic justice.Of course for a lowlife piece of scum like him a firing squad is the only real justice but I guess we take what the bleeding heart idiots will give us.

    If you are going to lie, lie big. I guess. I hope he has a lovely cell mate who he can play Dottie for.
