Bellefonte, PA (Sports Network) - Former Penn State assistant football coach
Jerry Sandusky will be sentenced Oct. 9 on his conviction of child sexual
Sandusky was found guilty in June on 45 counts charging him with sexual abuse
of 10 boys over a 15-year period.
The scandal, which broke last November with Sandusky's arrest, brought down
the Penn State football program, tarnished the legacy of the late Joe Paterno
and scarred the entire university.
Judge John M. Cleland scheduled the sentencing hearing on Monday. A hearing to
determine if Sandusky is a sexually violent predator (SVP) will be held
directly before sentencing.
Cleland also ordered written statements from the defense and prosecution
related to sentencing must be submitted by Oct. 5. Attorneys for both sides
will meet with the judge on Oct. 8.
