JERRY SANDUSKY GETS WHAT HE BELIEVES IS A VERY HARSH AND LONG SENTENCE
October 9 2012
Bellefonte, PA - For many people the trauma that Jerry Sandusky will still take a long, long time to get over. The victims of his predation the trauma will of course be lifelong, something they will simply never get past. For the school where he did his preying, and the students currently attending, it will alos take a long time to improve. Luckily, that healing process has begun.
Today, Sandusky was finally sentenced for the many, many convictions he received related to child sex abuse and will spend a minimum of 30 years in prison, though that could stretch up to 60 years. Given his age, 68, that sentence makes it extremely likely that Sandusky will die in prison which is something that will make most people very happy.
Sandusky himself, though, is not one of those people who is particularly happy about the sentence which of course makes sense. Sandusky, though, isn’t just unhappy he feels he has been wronged and may even be the victim of a child sex conspiracy designed to bring him down which really would be a weird thing to happen but he believes it nonetheless and so is about the only one unhappy about huis sentence.
“I did not do these alleged disgusting acts. The pain continues as I think of those who made the allegations. These are people I cared about, and still do. We will continue to fight,” said Sandusky before the sentencing. “I tried to bring joy, I tried to make people laugh.”
It’s believed much of that effort to make people laugh was done in hot showers and mostly naked which is a little odd.
The judge declined to sentence Sandusky to centuries in prison which could be troublesome if he finds a way to live forever, which is unlikely.
“I’m sure just about every victim of Jerry Sandusky is pretty happy today. While they might have preferred that he go away for longer what is important is that he off the streets and out of the showers and will never be able to harm another child again, that’s really the key to this whole thing,” said Scrape TV Sports analyst Mark Marvins. “I’m sure more than a few of them would have liked contrition and not further denials but unfortunately that isn’t something the judge can really mandate. Sandusky can think whatever he wants and the judge really can’t do anything to change that which sucks but that’s the way it goes.”
It’s not clear if Sandusky would like his accusers tried for lying to the court but probably.
“The sentence does seem a little light but he is not a young man and at the maximum, well, I doubt he could do much damage if he was indeed released at 128 years old. No one has even lived that long before and I doubt that even then we will have the technology to allow someone of that age to get excited enough to commit these kinds of crime again,” continued Marvins. “I think people are probably safe and that’s the most important part of this whole thing, that children are safe. Finally someone thought of the children. That’s all you really ask, really, that someone please think of the children, though not in the way Sandusky thinks of them. That’s creepy.”
It’s believed Sandusky will continue to think of the children that way for the rest of his life.
