Attorney: Jerry Sandusky "Anxious" to Leave Isolation
The only person to visit convicted child sex offender Jerry Sandusky says the former Penn State assistant football coach is "anxious" to get out of isolation at the Centre County jail.
Attorney Karl Rominger said Tuesday that Sandusky hasn't had any other visitors since he was taken to the jail Friday evening after his conviction on scores of child molestation charges. That's reportedly because the former assistant coach is waiting for a psychological evaluation and is on suicide watch.
Rominger recalled that Sandusky told him he doesn't think he's suicidal, but that he'd "go nutty" if he has to sit around a cell for a few more days. It could be several months before Sandusky is sentenced.
Sandusky has made one request so far – that was for a phone call to his wife Dottie. Sandusky’s trial attorney Joe Amendola, has also left the case.
Tape: Sandusky's Adopted Son Talks of Sex Abuse
Jerry Sandusky's son describes being sexually abused as an 8-year-old boy by the former Penn State assistant coach on a police interview tape obtained by NBC News.
Matt Sandusky told investigators he was abused after meeting his foster father through The Second Mile charity and a decade before Jerry Sandusky adopted him.
His attorneys confirmed the tape's authenticity to The Associated Press on Tuesday. NBC aired the tape on the "Today" show. The attorneys say the tape "illustrates that he made the difficult decision to come forward and tell the painful truth."
On the tape, Matt Sandusky described showering with Jerry Sandusky and rolling over in his sleep to avoid being touched. Jerry Sandusky was convicted Friday of sexually abusing 10 boys. He hasn't been charged with abusing Matt Sandusky.
Sandusky Scrubbed: Mural Artist Replaces Image
The depiction of Jerry Sandusky on a well-known mural across the street from the Penn State campus has been replaced by an image of a poet and activist draped with a blue ribbon — a symbol for awareness of child sexual abuse.
It was artist Michael Pilato's latest step in erasing the image of the disgraced former assistant football coach following Sandusky's conviction last week on 45 counts at his child sex abuse trial. Sandusky was removed from the mural days after his arrest in November.
But Pilato returned to work on the mural this week, painting in Dora McQuaid, a Penn State graduate who is a poet and an advocate for domestic and sexual violence victims and issues. The blue ribbon was added on Monday.
Also replacing Sandusky were two red handprints — one belonging to Ann Van Kuren, one of the 12 jurors who convicted Sandusky, and the other belonging to a sexual abuse victim.
Second Mile Headquarters Building for Sale
A newspaper reports that attorneys for three alleged abuse victims are asking a Centre County special judge not to allow the charity founded by convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky to transfer millions of dollars to a Texas organization.
The Second Mile, once lauded for efforts to help at-risk youth, is now seeking court approval to formally transfer many programs to Arrow Child & Family Ministries Incorporated Sandusky was convicted last week of 45 counts in his child sex abuse trial.
Prosecutors said the retired Penn State assistant football coach met the eight accusers who testified through The Second Mile. The Centre Daily Times says the attorneys argue that the court's first priority should be to preserve the charity's assets so it can pay "current and future liabilities."
