    BELLEFONTE, Pa. — Jerry Sandusky, a former Penn State assistant football coach, was sentenced Tuesday morning to 30 to 60 years in prison for sexually abusing boys, crimes that roiled the university community and shook one of major college football’s most prominent programs.

    Saw it this morning on abcnews.com

    Glad he got 30+ years. He will never make it out of prison. Cannot believe he is still in denial about what he did to those children.

    I am glad he will be away from children for the rest of his life. Hopefully his victims will find a little comfort in that fact, at least.

    He's finally exactly where he belongs. It's a real shame he wasn't busted a long time ago, at least he wouldn't have done quite as much damage to people. These crimes happen far to often, it's nauseating.
