Jerry Sandusky is speaking out and declaring his innocence. In an audio recording aired Monday by Penn State Radio, Jerry Sandusky says “They could take away my life, they could make me out as a monster, they could treat me as a monster, but they can't take away my heart. In my heart, I know I did not do these alleged disgusting acts.”
Sandusky went on to say, “A young man who was dramatic a veteran accuser, and always sought attention, started everything. He was joined by a well-orchestrated effort of the media, investigators, the system, Penn State, psychologists, civil attorneys and other accusers. They won. I've wondered what they really won: Attention, financial gain, prestige will all be temporary.”
Jerry Sandusky is expected to speak at his sentencing on Tuesday. Sandusky could face up to life in prison after being convicted on 45 counts of child sex abuse. Attorney Joe Amendola said Sandusky has been working on a statement that he plans to read in court.
At least three victims also plan on being in court and two of them are expected to read statements of their own.
