Governor Corbett Releases Statement on Sandusky Sentencing


Location: Harrisburg, PA

Governor Tom Corbett today released the following statement regarding today's sentencing of Jerry Sandusky:

"I want to thank the career prosecutors, state troopers, and agents who conducted this thorough and intensive investigation.

"These cases are difficult in the best of circumstances. It is to the credit of these
investigators, along with the resilience of the victims, resulting in an airtight case, the conviction of 45 crimes -- and now, today's sentence.

"I want to especially commend the victims in the case, who had the courage to
come forward and testify in open court, in spite of tremendous pressure and
national publicity.

"Today's sentence will hopefully give comfort to those young men, whose trust in the justice system is rewarded by seeing this man go to prison for the rest of his life.''
