Jerry Sandusky: 'I Am Going To Go Nutty' In Isolation

As of right now, convicted pedophile Jerry Sandusky remains in isolation and on suicide watch at the Centre County jail, according to Sarah Ganim of The Patriot-News, pending a psychological evaluation.

He had his first visitor at the jail, attorney Karl Rominger. There he talked to Rominger and said that if he was kept in isolation much longer, he could go a little crazy.

"He's anxious to be able to move around," Rominger said. "His exact quote to me, 'I don't think I'm suicidal. I'm dealing with this, but if I have to sit around in this cell for a few more days, I am going to go nutty.' "

Rominger also said that when he gets to be with the general prison population, his cell block would be only with a handful of other inmates.
