State Senator Doesn't Want To See 'Death Penalty' For Penn State

Monday morning will be a big day in college football as Penn State learns its fate with the NCAA and the punishment the governing body will impose as a result of the Jerry Sandusky sex-abuse scandal.

Last month, Sandusky was convicted on 45 counts of child sex abuse and on Sunday morning, the school removed the statue honoring legendary football coach, Joe Paterno, who was held culpable for the years of abuse that Sandusky imposed on children,

But Senator Jake Corman who is based in the same county as the university, according to a report, doesn't want to see have the dreaded death penalty imposed on it:

"I certainly hope it's not the 'death penalty,' but the NCAA's the jury, judge and executioner, so we'll just have to wait and see what they say."
