Jerry Sandusky on Suicide Watch After Conviction

After his expected conviction for 45 counts related to the sexual assault of little boys, former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky is being closely watched by authorities worried that he might commit suicide, according to CNN.

The 68-yearold Sandusky has been separated from other inmates as he waits for a return to court for his sentencing. Sandusky is expected to spend the rest of his life in prison.

Sandusky’s attorneys have indicated they will appeal Sandusky conviction, though they didn’t reveal the grounds. However, additional victims—including Sandusky’s adopted son—have come forward since the trial started, saying they too were abused by the coach. So even if somehow his conviction were overturned, there are still many other charges that likely would be thrown at him.
