Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky still insists he's innocent of sexually abusing boys during and after his career and will tell a judge as much Tuesday when he's sentenced on 45 guilty verdicts.
Sandusky, 68, will get his day in court although it's far too late to do anything about going to prison for possibly the rest of his life, barring he's let out on appeal in the future.
Meanwhile, Sandusky released a recorded statement Monday night declaring his innocence. In the three-minute statement, he urged people to "evaluate the accusers and their families, realize they didn’t come out of isolation," suggesting that their claims were motivated by fame or monetary reasons.
Judge John Clelands, after he hears from Sandusky and at least one victim, will decide on a sentence that could run anywhere from ten to 400 years.
Sandusky's attorney says that his client wishes he had taken the stand in his own defense during the sensational two-week trial that ended with guilty verdicts on all but three counts.
Judge Clelands will also determine Tuesday if Sandusky will be classified a sexually violent predator. If he is found to be sexually violent, he will be mandated to register as a sex offender if ever released from prison.
None of the 25 prisons for men in Pennsylvania have a special facility that houses sex offenders.
