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.

    look at how low one shoulder is to the other shoulder, and head tilt too. This guy has needed to go to www.upcspine.com to find a U,C,S, chiropractors for a long time. Ever since birth no doubt. When God comes back will he find Mercy on the earth? Jail is anti Christ. All need to take my advice all ages.

    or he's just a creep with bad posture. Even if he did have back problems so what? That doesn't give him any excuse to disgustingly scar children for life. I'm sorry for people who have health issues or who have had bad childhoods, but if you use that as an excuse to harm, then I lose sympathy.
    Jail is anti-christ? Are you serious? God commands people to pursue justice in his name. Yes the christian god is merciful but he is also just. The victims demand righteously for justice and this pervert can't be allowed to walk the streets.

    I bet you a nickle you have bad posture too that has not been addressed in a long time. Most need the care I talk about. I care, you don't care, Jesus cares about humans. The devil could care less. Guess who is in you? That's right. Jesus frees humans . Jesus does not enslave humans holding them in bondage. The word servant was made to mean slave by the humans who love jails, and slaves. Romans 12 >>18If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. 19Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. 20Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. 21Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
    King James Version. Legal system is the oxymoronic paradigm shift of this verse.
    Give place unto wrath means set it aside. Do not use it.
    Satan is the one who leads humans to jail not Jesus. Open your eyes NOW!

    lol I'm pretty sure i have fine posture, but that hardly is the point. And you're right; I don't care about your back pain if you molested a child. I'm pretty sure no God in his right mind would accept that sorry excuse. You don't think very clearly.

    A Christian who could think would say if you commit a crime, then you sinned and broke the law. God is just and demands fair punishment. The Christian God is merciful so if you asked for his forgiveness and you truly meant it, then he'd forgive. That still doesn't mean you escape justice on Earth.

    Look lets say a person did drugs right? like shared needles, did coke all that bad stuff...one day he finally stops after like 10 years of use, he becomes a christian, later on he gets aids because he shared needles with someone who had aids, im not saying he deserves it, no, im saying just because YOU change doesnt mean your past is gone! it is forgotten by God, but your actions do give out results, no matter what...lets say he doesnt have cancer! and he comes back from a chrisitan rehab, when he will be back, nothing will be all over for him, like a new life! no, he will have to face what he has destroyed, and now rebuild it with Gods help...Satan cant lead you to jail, you cant always blame it on satan or God, you cant say God was tempting me, or Satan did this, Satan tries, but at the end its the persons choice! he picks what he wants to do! A person gets a call from there friend saying lets go to a strip bar, it isnt temptation unless you let it to be...This man had a choice! he didnt have to molest the kids, but he choice his sexual feelings then what is wrong and what is right!

    The court got it right, but now that the facts are out it is despicable the job the university did on Paterno who clearly didn't deserve to lose his job and end his life the way he did.

    no offense but if I saw someone get raped, I just wouldnt only tell the board or the president ofthe college, wouldnt you call the police and stop the abuse at once?
  • JustThe... Xksana 2012/07/03 12:23:37

    The DA was hidden in the house of one of the victims with a microphone on when Sandusky "regretted what he did" to her son but since he didn't say he "enjoyed" what he did, he couldn't be arrested under PA law. The DA later disappeared and has since been pronounced dead.

    There was nothing else Joe could do than what he did.
  • Xksana JustThe... 2012/07/04 00:08:42
    Xksana
    yes he could, he caught them, he should've stopped it and call the police, not the fricken DA...I could go shoot a lot of people and say I regret it, and?
    he could say right now I regret raping all those kids, so what police will say, oh okay we will let you go....everyone regrets when they get caught

    That's just it . He doesn't see where he has done anything wrong, pedofile's don't. I'm sorry but they have NO REDEEMING QUALITIES! Pedofiles and Rapist should be put to death because they will never change and no amount of therapy or drugs will stop them nor would castrating them! It's a mental condititon and since I have a daughter I say death to everyone that's convicted! Civilized or not I really don't give a damn when a childs life is at risk!

    Satan thinks like that because that is what is going to happen to him. Satan is voicing his fears through your lips directed at another human.

    Jesus SAID, "Harm but 1 hair on a child such as these and it will be better for you that you were never born" -the innocent that cant defend themselves- you predators have a lotta fun in hell. kinda hot, hard to breath because of the atmosphere there. oh ya, and watch out for demons.

    Yes. Sandusky should be left alone to live his life exactly the way he wants to live his life. All of us have to answer to one being to have eternal life with Joy or eternal death with nothing. Religions again tells a lie. Heaven is life eternal. Hell is not life of any kind being eternal. Hell is Gods glory to evil.
