Jerry Sandusky to be sentenced on Tuesday

Monday, October 8, 2012 - 6:10pm

Tuesday Jerry Sandusky will return to the same Centre County, Pennsylvania Courthouse where he was escorted out in cuffs just over three months ago. He will emerge from isolation thinner and wearing an orange prison jump suit instead of a sports coat.

The former Penn State assistant football coach faces anywhere from 60 to more than 400 years in prison for abusing 10 boys over 15 years.
Sandusky never testified. The only time we heard from him was during a poorly handled interview with NBC's Bob Costas last november.

Sandusky's attorney Joe Amendola admits he regrets allowing that interview to take place.  Now Amendola says Sandusky is preparing to break his silence once again.
This despite graphic often heartbreaking testimony from victims during the trial detailing abuse at the Penn State campus and Sandusky's home.

Some of them will likely speak again during the sentencing and their statements are sure to have weight in what ever sentence Sandusky receives.
Sandusky's attorney is already preparing to appeal the conviction.
In retrospect, he says he also wishes he had requested an out of county jury and allowed Sandusky to testify.
