After getting the relatively light sentence of 30-60 years (out of a possible 400) after being convicted on 45 counts of child molestation, instead of showing the slightest remorse, Jerry Sandusky remains defiantly in denial that he ever did anything wrong.
In a mind-boggling audio statement right before his sentencing, Sandusky basically called the kids, their families, everyone at Penn State, and every person in the legal system remotely involved with the case liars, all conspiring to bring him down.
Despite many young men’s testimony to the contrary, Sandusky doesn’t — and never has — viewed his behavior toward them as sexual or unwanted.
Makes you wonder what exactly Sandusky does think sex is.
If the kids were as duplicitous and rotten as he now accuses them of being, why did he spend years devoting every free moment to lavishing gifts and attention on them?
Sandusky vows he will appeal and continue the fight because he wasn’t given enough time to prepare.
It hasn’t been enough for him to wreck a still-undetermined number of childhoods. Now that he can’t touch boys, he’ll seek gratification by continuing to inflict psychological and emotional pain from a distance, for as long as he lives.
His future prison home hasn’t been finalized yet, but in any prison, the inmates tend to think child predators give criminals a bad name. If given a chance, they’ll probably be glad to teach Jerry what it feels like to be the prey.
