Sandusky headed to prison, but scandal persists

BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) ? Headed to prison for the rest of his life, Jerry Sandusky leaves behind human and legal wreckage that could take years to clear away.

The former Penn State assistant football coach was sentenced Tuesday to at least 30 years in prison for sexually abusing 10 boys, a scandal that brought disgrace to Penn State and triggered the downfall of his former boss, Hall of Fame coach Joe Paterno.

Victims now face a lifetime of healing. Penn State is laboring under severe NCAA penalties, and at least four civil lawsuits have been filed against the university, with more likely to come.

If Sandusky felt any remorse or pity for anyone but himself, he didn’t show it at his sentencing. Instead, he denied hurting any children and cast himself as the victim.
