A judge gave Jerry Sandusky no leniency Friday when she re-sentenced the disgraced Penn State football coach to 30 to 60 years in prison for molesting multiple boys.
That is the same sentence Sandusky, now 75, received when he was first sentenced seven years ago.
So, given Judge Maureen Skerda’s decision, Sandusky has another 23 years to serve behind bars before he will even be considered for parole.
Sandusky’s resentencing was sparked by a change in the law. His original sentence was based on mandatory sentencing guidelines that have since been reversed.
In October, Penn State officials verified they are investigating a brand-new abuse claim against Sandusky.
Sandusky isn’t finished appealing. He filed his latest legal challenge to his reinstated convictions in federal court in October.
