Jerry Sandusky Likely to Plead Not Guilty, Releases Audio Statement [VIDEO]
Jerry Sandusky is expected to declare his innocence at a sentencing hearing later today. Sandusky released an audio recording to a Penn State student-run radio station, in which he accused alleged victims of joining a conspiracy theory.
“A young man who was dramatic, a veteran accuser, and always sought attention, started everything,” Sandusky said. “He was joined by a well-orchestrated effort of the media, investigators, the system, Penn State, psychologists, civil attorneys and other accusers. They won. I’ve wondered what they really won: Attention, financial gain, prestige … will all be temporary. Before you blame me, as others have, look at everything and everybody.”
Sandusky could face as few as ten, or up to 400 years in prison, if convicted.
