Jerry Sandusky Verdict Appears Imminent, According To Report

Jurors spent Friday evening deliberating in the child sex abuse case against former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, and it looks like they’ve reached a verdict, according to a report.

A picture of Sandusky leaving his house wearing a suit circulated around Twitter at a little after 9:00 p.m. Friday, so this report would be consistent with that.

Given the scores of charges against Sandusky, it’s not clear yet what to expect from the verdict, and it will probably take a while for reporters at the courthouse to sort it all out.

It does appear very likely, however, that Sandusky is headed to jail, as Sandusky’s own attorney, Joe Amendola, made abundantly clear earlier Friday. Amendola said that if Sandusky was acquitted, he would “die of a heart attack.” He also said that, given the number of charges against Sandusky, “the likelihood is strong he will be convicted of something.”
