Governor Tom Corbett today released the following statement on the
conviction of Jerry Sandusky in Centre County Court:
"First, I want to thank the jury for their willingness to serve on such a difficult
case,'' Corbett said.
"I also want to commend the multiple victims in this case who had the courage to come forward and testify in court, confronting Sandusky, and proving beyond a reasonable doubt that he is guilty of these reprehensible crimes,'' Corbett said.
"The agents and prosecutors of the Attorney General's Office, as well as the
Pennsylvania State Police, also deserve a great deal of credit for today's verdict.
They pursued every lead, gathering evidence from multiple victims, in order to
bring this man to justice,'' Corbett said.
