Convicted of abuse.

Jerry Sandusky was convicted Friday of sexually assaulting 10 boys over 15 years, accusations that had sent shock waves through the college campus known as Happy Valley and led to the firing of Penn State’s beloved Hall of Fame coach, Joe Paterno.

Sandusky, a 68-year-old retired defensive coach who was once Paterno’s heir apparent, was found guilty of Friday of 48 counts. He faces life in prison at sentencing, which is weeks away.

He’ll never see the light of day as a free man again.  He has not even faced the charges in other states.  Some of these incidents occurred during out of town trips.
