It's been a little while since the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal broke, but the trial is finally over and the verdict is in. Sandusky was found guilty on 45 of the 48 counts filed against him involving 10 different victims over a span of about 13 years. Guilty charges include involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, indecent assault, unlawful contact with a minor, corruption of minors, and endangering a child's welfare. The victims were between the ages of 9 and 17 at the time of the abuse.

Sandusky's defense team is already planning an appeal strategy. Defense attorney Joe Amendola told The Associated Press, "We told the trial court... and the Supreme Court we were not prepared to proceed to trial in June due to numerous issues, and we asked to withdraw from the case for those reasons." Jerry Sandusky continues to claim innocence.

    Your body dies. You are no better than he is. Condemn, and be condemned. Forgive, and be forgiven. To forgive is Godly to condemn is demonic.

    That is why we should not judge lest we be judged. It is all sex that's why. The condemner is the devil. Jesus saves condemning no one. The human refusing to be like Jesus is condemns themselves.

    .....but don't worry, a lot of Educational institutions in Western countries are now full of those kind of people.

    Kevin Jennings was head of Dept. of Education under the LGBT banner (and supporter of NAMBLA) that helped catapult these people and their ideas in the USA.

    In Europe a lot of these people have also been found guilty of running human trafficking rings.

    I assume people thought once more LGBT educators were brought in under the Safe schools programs that somehow it wouldn't adversely affect students. Within the last few years, the state of the Educational system in Western countries are now only beginning to witness these effects.

    You should be more honest with yourselves.

    Oh STFU, these people are everywhere, the likes of you don't mind when its the church doing it, all of sudden its LGBT's faulty that this hetero molester molested kids, idiot. I guess its best when its only heteros in charge and they figure out how to keep things hush so no one finds out.
  • bhab Ev Rom 2012/06/27 00:31:10
    They are not traditional hetero. They are pedophiles with a confused sexual identity.
  • Ev Rom bhab 2012/06/27 00:36:20

    Sure, thats why a lot of them are married and have kids.

    I'm not religious and I don't approve of homos/paedos infesting religious indoctrination sites either.
  • Ev Rom Mother ... 2012/06/28 21:47:31

    Homos normally avoid religion and hetero pedo's live in churches.

    Did you conduct a survey yourself? If not, can you please site where you got this statistic from?

    Are homos welcome with the religious? Where did pedo priest find protection and sanctuary?
  • kobidob... Mother ... 2012/07/05 18:39:15
    Religious indoctrination sites are melting pots that create condemners. How can that be good?

    And while youre busy tearing down the Western World don't forget that Western Europe gave the world Hitler, Moussolini & Franco. You're an idiot.

    Typical homo response. I guess Sandusky was just guilty of loving too much, that's all.

    ....and that mental health issues are so closely linked to homosexuality that admitting in being homo is more or less admitting having one or more other mental health problems.

    Facts just hurt sometimes.
  • bhab Mother ... 2012/06/27 00:27:35
    Yeah! Now they want to start introducing kids in the 2nd and 3rd grade to deviant and
    alternanate life style in NY schools, is`nt this how the fall of the Roman Empire began?
    Oh yeah! And if your a parent and resist, your labeled a close minded bigot. Huh!

    Humans need to be like jesus is, and Judge yoursaelf. You have no idea what you are thgrowing away by not judging yourself.

    Now let's hope there's no special treatment. General population?

  • ☆ElenaDiamond☆ 2012/06/26 18:04:32
    Yes he is so guilty that the demons in hell are chortling with glee for when they get their chance at Sandusky.
  • politicalsoldier 2012/06/26 18:00:38
    Yep and I hope he spends the rest of his pathetic life tortured and rapped repeatedly.
  • FatherL... politic... 2012/06/26 23:48:50 (edited)
    IF this man is put in the general population he will without doubt be raped and murdered in prison. No doubt about it. We can still only hope though.
  • taitaFalcon23 2012/06/26 17:59:40
    Sandusky was shown an amazing tolerance. If I had my way, his wife would now be a widow and I for the life of me cannot believe she was 'blindsided' by his proclivities
  • Ang74 taitaFa... 2012/06/26 21:14:47
    I don't believe that he could be raping boys in his basement without her knowledge. She turned a blind eye....she's just as guilty.
  • taitaFa... Ang74 2012/06/26 22:45:52
    that's what I come up with.... there are no clean hands here

    How does he try to claim innocence? I'm glad the courts got things right.
