Joshua Harper watched Jerry Sandusky listen to one guilty verdict after another — 45 in all — and was more certain than ever that Sandusky, the former Penn State football assistant, had sexually abused those young boys. Sandusky never flinched. No sign of regret creased his face.

“He knew it was true,” Harper, a high school chemistry teacher here, said as his 2-year-old son and his 4- and 5-year-old daughters played on the floor of their home Saturday morning. “It made me feel confident that we made the right decision.”

For two weeks, Harper, a graduate of Penn State and a juror in Sandusky’s trial, heard in disturbing detail how one of his alma mater’s most famous graduates had preyed on and molested 10 boys as he was simultaneously building a charity and a reputation as a pillar of a tight-knit community where football and family were highly valued.

On Friday, Sandusky, 68, spent the first night of what is expected to be the rest of his life behind bars. He will be sentenced within 90 days, his fate rigidly mapped out and only at the mercy of the state’s justice system.

In the meantime, Sandusky will be examined by the state Sexual Offenders Assessment Board, which will determine whether he is a violent sexual predator. He will very likely be isolated from other prisoners for his protection until Judge John Cleland reviews the reports and settles on a sentence.

Then Sandusky will be transferred to the State Correctional Institution at Camp Hill, in south-central Pennsylvania, which holds up to 4,000 inmates, a quarter of them classified as temporary.

Harper said there was little debate and even less doubt in the jury room about Sandusky’s guilt. As emotional and wrenching as the accounts were from the eight victims who testified, Harper said the grimmest and most significant testimony came from Mike McQueary, then a graduate assistant, who said he interrupted a sexual assault by his former coach against a young boy in the showers at the university’s football center.

“It was just eye-opening on all the things that happened because we got a whole lot of detail on what Sandusky was doing,” Harper said.

While Sandusky’s future appears predestined, the fates of Penn State, its vaunted football program and some of its current and past officials will be determined after a number of investigations.

There are federal investigations into a possible cover-up by Penn State and the charity Sandusky founded, the Second Mile. The university’s board of trustees has hired the former F.B.I. director Louis J. Freeh to look into the mistakes made in the wake of Sandusky’s crimes and to propose remedies.

The N.C.A.A. and the Big Ten Conference are investigating whether the athletic department had lost institutional control and whether there were more violations of ethical conduct and compliance. Two fired administrators — Tim Curley and Gary Schultz — have been accused of lying to a grand jury about the sexual assault witnessed by McQueary.

Then there are the numerous civil suits from Sandusky’s victims that Penn State has acknowledged are coming.

“The university plans to invite victims of Mr. Sandusky’s abuse to participate in a program to facilitate the resolution of claims against the university arising out of Mr. Sandusky’s conduct,” Penn State said in a statement late Friday. “The purpose of the program is simple — the university wants to provide a forum where the university can privately, expeditiously and fairly address the victims’ concerns and compensate them for claims relating to the university.”

One of the plaintiffs could be Matt Sandusky, an adopted son of the coach, who came forward in the final days of the trial and offered to testify that Jerry Sandusky had abused him. Matt Sandusky was never called to testify, but Jerry Sandusky’s lead lawyer, Joseph Amendola, conceded that the disclosure had kept his client off the witness stand.

Although the jury did not hear that Matt Sandusky had joined the list of accusers until after the verdict, Harper said it was a unifying moment for the jury’s seven women and five men, who had decided early not to exchange last names or contact information.

“That was total confirmation that we made the right decision,” Harper said. “That was very important for me because I don’t have to question my decision.”

On the day after a conviction was announced against one of the most high-profile pedophiles in recent times, there seemed to be little doubt in this corner of the world known as Happy Valley that the right verdict had been rendered.

Still, it did not mean anyone was happy about it.

It was a somber afternoon on campus, especially at Paterno Library, named for Penn State’s iconic coach, Joe Paterno. He had known of at least one of the instances of abuse and was found to have failed to act properly and was fired. Two months later, he died from lung cancer.

Six people politely declined to talk about the months since scandal gripped their community.

“There’s been too much sadness,” said a female graduate student who did not want to give her name.

Fifty yards from the Centre County Courthouse a life-size cutout of Paterno filled a storefront. Across the street from where Harper and his fellow jurors found Sandusky guilty, a banner advertised memorabilia signed by Paterno.

Shana Stamm, a 27-year-old home care aide, remembered how classes at her elementary school were once suspended for an afternoon so Sandusky could give a motivational speech. She remembered how many of her classmates raised money for the Second Mile.

“It’s devastating for this whole community,” she said. “He turned out to be such an evil man.”

A jury on Friday convicted Jerry Sandusky of 45 counts of sexual abuse, believing the graphic testimony of young men over a defense team that tried to portray the former Penn State football coach as a caring man devoted to mentoring disadvantaged children.
As the jury foreman read the verdict Sandusky stood calmly between his defense attorneys. His wife Dottie, sitting in the front row of the courtroom with five friends and family members, pursed her lips and shook her head, casting her eyes at the floor as the guilty verdicts were read off.

The Centre County jury of seven women and five men, most of whom have ties to Penn State, acquitted Sandusky of one count of raping a person under the age of 16 related to Victim 2, an unidentified boy former Penn State assistant football coach Mike McQueary testified about seeing Sandusky with in a locker room shower.

They also accquited on counts of indecent assault related to Victims 5 and 6. Victim 6 was a boy whose mother sparked an investigation in 1998 when she discovered Sandusky showered with the boy.

Prosecutor Joseph E. McGettigan III asked Judge John M. Cleland to revoke Sandusky’s bail. The judge granted the request over defense attorney Joe Amendola’s objection.

Sandusky was sent to the Centre County jail and walked out accompanied by sheriff’s deupties. Outside the courthouse he was escorted in handcuffs to a vehicle and driven away.

“From the beginning, we knew what we were facing, so the surprise would have been the opposite,” Amedola said to reporters in the courtroom moments after the verdict..

“Sandusky said nothing after the verdict was delivered,” Amendola told reporters.

“I think Jerry was prepared for this,” he said.

Sandusky, 68, had been confined to his home under $250,000 bail since December.

Sandusky retired in 1999 from his position as defensive coordinator for Penn State, where he coached for more than three decades, helping earn the school a national reputation as “Linebacker U.”

The charges had a devastating impact on the university, with two former executives facing perjury charges for allegedly lying to the state grand jury that heard evidence against Sandusky.Paterno was fired and university President Graham Spanier forced out for their handling of a 2001 sexual abuse allegation against Sandusky, and the university has acknowledged that it and employees have received subpoenas from federal prosecutors.

Known nationally for his coaching and winning record under Paterno, Sandusky was also a local celebrity described in trial testimony as a saint for his work with at-risk children through The Second Mile, a charity he founded in 1977 and based in Centre County.

Sandusky and his wife Dottie adopted six children and were foster parents to several more, so allegations that Sandusky had taken advantage of the troubled boys about whom he professed to care deeply devastated the idyllic Centre County community where Penn State has its main campus.

During his seven-day trial in Centre County Court, prosecutors presented testimony from eight young men and other witnesses who described Sandusky touching, groping, bear hugging and forcing oral and anal sex on the boys.

The abuse, witnesses said, happened in a basement bedroom at Sandusky’s home near State College, Pa., in locker room showers on the Penn State campus, in hotels and on road trips with the Penn State football team.

The men, ranging in age from 18 to 28, testified they suffered in silence, some for more than a decade, because they were ashamed, scared and initially feared losing the father figure they found through their friendship with Sandusky.

One 25-year-old man, identified in court papers as Victim 3, said he felt abandoned by Sandusky when he was sent to live in a group home.

“I prayed that he would call me, find a way to get me out of there, adopt me or something,” the man said.

Each of the eight accusers who testified in court gave his name, but The Morning Call does not identify victims of sexual abuse.

In his closing argument, lead prosecutor Joseph E. McGettigan III told jurors he felt he had pieces of the 10 boys’ souls in his pocket, and asked jurors to acknowledge their loss.

“Give him the justice he really deserves. Find him guilty of everything,” McGettigan said.

Sandusky’s defense attorneys, Amendola and Karl Rominger, worked to create the impression that his accusers are motivated by the potential to tap Penn State’s coffers through lawsuits and asked in cross-examinations why the men had hired civil lawyers, noting some made more serious allegations after they did.

“If he did this he should rot in jail,” Amendola said. “But what if he didn’t do these things? His life is destroyed.”

The defense team also cast doubt on the integrity of the state police investigation that led to charges against Sandusky.

In a move that appeared to catch prosecutors off guard, defense attorneys confronted a pair of state troopers who led the investigation with a recording in which one was heard to share details of other accusers’ statements with the 28-year-old man known as Victim 4.

Sandusky’s lawyers put a family friend of former Penn State assistant coach Mike McQueary on the witness stand to cast doubt on McQueary’s report about the night in 2001 he saw Sandusky in a locker room shower with a 10- to 12-year-old boy.

In two hours of testimony early in the trial, McQueary said he saw Sandusky with his genitals pressed against the boy’s rear end and had no doubt what he witnessed was sexual.

But Dr. Jonathan Dranov, summoned for advice after McQueary reported the scene to his father, said McQueary never mentioned a specific sexual act.

Sandusky’s wife Dottie also testified in his defense, telling jurors she never saw anything inappropriate between her husband and the boys who became like family in the years after Sandusky founded a charity for at-risk youth called The Second Mile.

Dottie Sandusky said she remembered fondly most of the boys who testified against her husband and rebutted points of their testimony. Notably, she told the jury that her home’s basement, where some of the abuse was alleged to have taken place, is not soundproof.

Sandusky was widely expected to testify in his own defense until Wednesday when his attorneys abruptly rested their case. Attorneys for Sandusky’s 33-year-old adopted son Matthew said he revealed to prosecutors in the midst of the trial that Sandusky had abused him and that he was prepared to testify for the prosecution.

Citing sources, NBC News reported Thursday Matthew Sandusky’s willingness to testify was pivotal in Jerry Sandusky’s decision not to take the stand.

16:52 EST               21 June 2012

Jerry Sandusky’s own adopted son has dramatically accused him of abuse as a jury deliberates over scores of sex abuse charges against the former Penn State coach.

A lawyer for Matt Sandusky said the man told authorities that the former Penn State assistant football coach abused him.

Matt Sandusky is one of Jerry Sandusky’s six adopted children.

His lawyers, Andrew Shubin and Justine Andronici, issued a statement on Thursday naming Matt Sandusky and saying that the 33-year-old had been prepared to testify on behalf of prosecutors at his father’s sex abuse trial.

The statement says Matt Sandusky is ‘a victim of Jerry Sandusky’s abuse,’ but doesn’t go into specifics.

NBC News reported that Matt Sandusky was to take the stand as a ‘rebuttal witness’ if Jerry Sandusky testified.

Jerry Sandusky’s defence team ultimately decided the 68-year-old former coach wouldn’t speak in his own defence

Matt Sandusky’s attorney’s told the network: ‘This has been an extremely painful experience for Matt and he has asked us to convey his request that the media respect his privacy,’ they said.

The statement came after jurors began deliberating 48 charges against the ex-coach.

Prosecutors say Sandusky met the 10 sex-abuse victims through his charity, The Second Mile, which he established in 1977.

Lawyers for Matt and Jerry Sandusky and prosecutors did not immediately respond to requests for comment.Matt Sandusky’s lawyer says his client met with investigators very recently.

New allegation: One of Jerry Sandusky's six adopted sons, Matt, has come forward through an attorney, saying that the ex-coach abused him too
New allegation: One of Jerry Sandusky’s six adopted sons, Matt, has come forward through an attorney, saying that the ex-coach abused him too
Spouse: Jerry Sandusky and his wife Dottie, pictured Thursday outside the courthouse, were married in 1966, and have no biological children, but they adopted six times
Spouse: Jerry Sandusky and his wife Dottie, pictured Thursday outside the courthouse, were married in 1966, and have no biological children, but they adopted six times

Matt Sandusky went to live with Sandusky and his wife, Dottie, as a foster child and was adopted by them as an adult.

Shortly after Sandusky’s arrest in November, Matt Sandusky’s ex-wife Jill Jones successfully obtained a restraining order forbidding the children from sleeping at their grandparents’ home.

At about the same time, details emerged that Matt Sandusky had attempted suicide just four months after first going to live with Jerry and Dottie Sandusky in 1995.

He had come into the home through The Second Mile charity, and was first a foster child before being legally adopted.

His name also came up last week during the testimony of one of Sandusky’s 10 accusers.

The man, dubbed Victim 4 by prosecutors, said Matt Sandusky was living at the Sandusky home on an occasion when he had stayed there overnight.

When asked by prosecutors whether Jerry Sandusky ever engaged him in a soap battle in the showers, he recounted a time when he and Matt Sandusky had been playing racket ball.

When they were done, he said, they went back to a locker room. Matt got undressed and got into the shower and then Victim 4 and Sandusky followed him in there, he testified.

‘Me and Jerry came in. He started pumping his hand full of soap,’ he said.

At that point, Matt shut off his shower and left and went to another locker room to shower, the witness said.

Asked by prosecutors about Matt’s facial expression when the soap battles started, he replied: ‘Nervous.’

Jerry and Dottie Sandusky married in 1966 and have no biological children together, but adopted six times and have served as foster parents.

The news comes just hours after a 30-year-old Ohio man became the first alleged Sandusky victim to reveal himself to the public, saying in an interview that he was sexually abused by Jerry Sandusky more than 100 times, starting when he was just ten.

Travis Weaver said Sandusky preyed on him after he and his brother went to a summer camp for the Second Mile, a charity the coach founded and through which he is accused of cultivating most of his victims.

The revelation comes on the same day as a jury begins to deliberate Mr Sandusky’s fate on 48 counts of sexual abuse charges.

In closing arguments, his attorney said the accusers were liars who were hoping to cash in on legal settlements from the university.

Mr Weaver is not one of the eight accusers who testified at trial, but he did tell his story to the grand jury that handed down the Sandusky’s indictment, NBC News reported.

An exclusive interview with Mr Weaver will air at 10pm Thursday on Rock Center.

When asked what he would do if he ever met Sandusky again, Mr Weaver doesn’t hesitate.

Travis Weaver      Jerry Sandusky

Silence: For 15 years, Mr Weaver says, he thought he was Sandusky’s only victim. That all changed last fall when the former coach was indicted on charges he abused other eight boys

‘I’d punch him in his mouth,’ he said. ‘There would be no reason to say anything. He knows what he did.’

During the sex abuse trial, Sandusky’s lawyer Joe Amendola said the former coach is being railroaded by overzealous investigators and prosecutors.

He strenuously denied that accusations and Sandusky has maintained his innocence since his arrest last fall.

SANDUSKY’S FATE IS IN JURY’S HANDS AS DELIBERATION BEGINS

Sandusky

Jurors in Jerry Sandusky’s child sexual abuse case began deliberations on Thursday after his lawyer and a state prosecutor made closing arguments that followed seven days of testimony.

The former Penn State University coach’s attorney claimed all eight of Jerry Sandusky’s accusers are lying about their sex abuse allegations in the hopes of winning big settlements from the college.

Joe Amendola quoted Mother Theresa as he said his client had been railroaded by overzealous investigators and greedy witnesses. He told the jury that prosecutors’ case ‘doesn’t make sense.

Sandusky is accused of molesting eight boys over the course of 15 years in a case that shocked the nation and led to the firing of Joe Paterno, one of the most respected head coaches in college football history.

When Amendola cited Sandusky’s decades of charity work, he referred to the Mother Theresa  ‘Anyway.’

It includes the line: ‘If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway.’

Amendola laid the blame for the allegations at the feet of state police investigators who he said coached the alleged victims into giving accusatory statements.

Amendola said the accusers were greedy an they lied about the abuse in the hopes of winning big payouts from Penn State University so they could drive new cars and buy big houses.

Mr Weaver has also filed a lawsuit and is being represented by a well-known attorney who has specialized in sex abuse cases against the Catholic church.

The abuse began in 1992, Mr Weaver told NBC’s Rock Center, when he met Sandusky at a swimming pool at a camp sponsored by the Second Miles, which Sandusky founded to help at-risk young boys.

‘It was like meeting my hero,’ Mr Weaver said of Sandusky, who was once the top pick to replace legendary Penn State football coach Joe Paterno.

The individual attention Sandusky gave Mr Weaver began innocently, but gradually grew more and more sinister, he said.

It began with a shower in the Penn State football team’s locker room.

‘After the shower was over… he’d dry me off with a towel. He’d say he was trying to wrestle with me… and then it progressed into oral sex,’ Mr Weaver told NBC.

He always assumed he was the only victim, he said.

He never imagined there have been other boys until Sandusky was arrested last fall.

Mr Weaver also blasted Sandusky’s wife, Dottie, who testified that she never saw or heard anything that would have made her think her husband was molesting boys.

He recalled on incident when Sandusky performed oral sex on him in a bedroom across the hall from Mrs Sandusky.

‘How could she not know?’ Mr Weaver said.

He man said the abuse continued for four years until he moved away to Ohio to flee Sandusky.

Jerry Sandusky‘s lawyers are leaning toward putting him on the stand in his own defense tomorrow, though the final decision has not yet been made, sources tell ABC News.

Sandusky would be called as the final witness for the defense, which is expected to rest its case on Wednesday. He is expected to deny that he ever had any sexual intent in his “horseplay” with the eight men who say they were sexually abused by him.

Prosecutor Joseph McGettigan, who has aggressively cross-examined defense witnesses this week, will have the opportunity to question Sandusky if they decide to put him on the stand.

Sandusky is charged with 51 counts of child sex abuse and could face life in prison if convicted.

His testimony could be a final chance for the defense, led by attorney Joseph Amendola, to place a reasonable doubt in the minds of the jurors. The case is expected to go to the jury of seven women and five men following closing arguments on Thursday.

Sandusky’s legal team had its strongest day yet today countering the claims of the eight accusers as Sandusky’s wife, Dottie, took the stand in his defense, and helped poke holes in the accounts of two lead investigators in the case against him.

A poised Dottie Sandusky testified that she never saw anything sexual occur between her husband and any of his accusers.

Mrs. Sandusky, who winked at her husband as she took the stand, said in a soft voice that they will have been married for 46 years in September.

In a patient grandmotherly style, she described most of her husband’s accusers as “very nice,” but remembered some as “conniving” and “very clingy.”

Sandusky, 68, is charged with 51 counts of sex abuse of 10 boys.

Dottie Sandusky bluntly denied the accusation of one accuser who told the court last week that during the Alamo Bowl she walked in on her husband trying to force the boy, now known as Victim 4, to perform oral sex on him. He claimed she interrupted her husband by asking, “What’s going on in there?”

Mrs. Sandusky’s version was quite different.

“I came in one day. It was like a bathroom and dressing area. They were standing there. I said ‘what’s going on’ because Jerry was very upset and we had asked (Victim 4) if he wanted to go to a luncheon which was $50, and he said he’d really like to go. And Jerry said OK, and it was the day of the luncheon and (Victim 4) wouldn’t go and Jerry knew I’d be very upset about spending the money.”

Dottie Sandusky told the court room that nothing seemed inappropriate about the exchange.

“They were just standing in little hallways, they were fully clothed,” she said.

Dottie Sandusky also rejected repeated testimony by the alleged victims that Jerry Sandusky would molest them at night in the family basement, an area they said his wife never went.

Mrs. Sandusky told the jury today that she and her husband had always shared a bed and that her husband would usually go to bed first. She also testified that she would often go down to the basement to get food out of a freezer there.

In response to the allegation from Victim 10 that he once yelled for help while being sexually abused in the basement while Dottie Sandusky was upstairs, Amendola asked whether someone on the ground floor would be able to hear someone yelling from the basement. “Yes,” she responded and added that her hearing was very good.

She also described Victim 4, who testified powerfully about the sex abuse he allegedly endured, as “demanding, and he was very conniving, and he wanted his way and didn’t listen a whole lot.”

Penn State assistant football coach Mike McQuearysaid he saw Jerry Sandusky was behind a boy he estimated to be 10 or 12-years-old, with his hands wrapped around the boy's waist.

Dec 16, 2011        8:25 AM ET

A Penn State assistant football coach testified Friday that he believes he saw former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky molesting a boy and that he fully conveyed what he had seen to two Penn State administrators.

Mike McQueary, speaking for the first time in public about the 2002 encounter in a Penn State locker room, said he believes that Sandusky was attacking the child with his hands around the boy’s waist but said he wasn’t 100 percent sure it was intercourse.

McQueary took the stand Friday morning in a Pennsylvania courtroom during a preliminary hearing for Tim Curley and Gary Schultz, two university officials who are accused of lying to a grand jury about what McQueary told them. The hearing was expected to last most of the day.

McQueary’s story is central to the case against Curley and Schultz. They testified to the grand jury that McQueary never relayed the seriousness of what he saw. The officials, and Penn State coach Joe Paterno, have been criticized for never telling police about the 2002 allegation. Prosecutors say Sandusky continued to abuse boys for six more years.

McQueary said he had stopped by a campus football locker room to drop off a pair of sneakers in the spring of 2002 when he happened upon Sandusky and the boy in a shower.

He said Sandusky was behind the boy he estimated to be 10 or 12-years-old, with his hands wrapped around the boy’s waist.

He said the boy was facing a wall, with his hands on it.

McQueary said he has never described what he saw as anal rape or anal intercourse and couldn’t see Sandusky’s genitals, but that “it was very clear that it looked like there was intercourse going on.”

McQueary under cross examination

Under cross examination by an attorney for Curley, McQueary reiterated that he had not seen Sandusky penetrating or fondling the boy but was nearly certain he knew an assault happened in part because the two were standing so close and Sandusky’s arms were wrapped around the youth.

He said he peeked into the shower several times and that the last time he looked in, Sandusky and the boy had separated. He said he didn’t say anything, but “I know they saw me. They looked directly in my eye, both of them.”

McQueary said he reported what he saw to Paterno but never went to police.

He said he did not give Paterno explicit details of what he believed he’d seen, saying he wouldn’t have used terms like sodomy or anal intercourse out of respect for the longtime coach.

He said Paterno told him he’d “done the right thing” by reporting what he saw. The head coach appeared shocked and saddened and slumped back in his chair, McQueary said.

Paterno told McQueary he would talk to others about what he’d reported.

Nine or 10 days later, McQueary said he met with Curley and Shultz and told them he’d seen Sandusky and a boy, both naked, in the shower after hearing skin on skin slapping sounds.

“I told them that I saw Jerry in the showers with a young boy and that what I had seen was extremely sexual and over the lines and it was wrong,” McQueary said. “I would have described that it was extremely sexual and I thought that some kind of intercourse was going on.”

McQueary said he was left with the impression both men took his report seriously. When asked why he didn’t go to police, he referenced Shultz’s position as a vice president at the university who had overseen the campus police

“I thought I was talking to the head of the police, to be frank with you,” he said. “In my mind it was like speaking to a [district attorney]. It was someone who police reported to and would know what to do with it.”

Didn’t call police

Under cross examination, McQueary said he considered what he saw a crime but didn’t call police because “it was delicate in nature.”

“I tried to use my best judgment,” he said. “I was sure the act was over.” He said he never tried to find the boy.

Curley and Schultz are charged with lying to a grand jury and failing to properly report what McQueary allegedly told them.

Their lawyers say the men are innocent and contest McQueary’s statements.

District Judge William C. Wenner was hearing testimony Friday to help him decide whether state prosecutors have enough evidence against the pair to send their cases to trial.

Sandusky says he is innocent of more than 50 charges stemming from what authorities say were sexual assaults over 12 years on 10 boys in his home, on Penn State property and elsewhere. The scandal has provoked strong criticism that Penn State officials didn’t do enough to stop Sandusky, and prompted the departures of Hall of Fame football coach Joe Paterno and the school’s longtime president, Graham Spanier.

Curley, 57, Penn State’s athletic director, was placed on leave by the university after his arrest. Schultz, 62, returned to retirement after spending about four decades at the school, most recently as senior vice president for business and finance, and treasurer.
