[UPDATED] [AUDIO] Sandusky Sentenced to 30-60 Years in Prison: Jerry Sandusky Claims His Innocence Prior to Sentencing
UPDATED: TUESDAY October 9th, 2012 at 9:30 AM – Jerry Sandusky has been sentenced to 20-60 years in prison. Seeing as he’s already 68-years-old, this pretty much means that it is very likely he will die in prison. Judge Cleland said prior to giving him the maximum of 60 years:
‘I’m not going to sentence you to centuries in prison, although the law would permit that. It’s too abstract, only a big number.
‘You are sentenced to spend not less than 30 and not more than 60 years in prison; that has the unmistakeable impact of saying the rest of your life.
‘I think it cannot be disputed that you have done much positive work, tragedy that all the
qualities that made you successful continue to conceal the vices that brought you down.
‘Continuing to conceal those vices from yourself and everybody else, in my view, makes you dangerous.
‘The crime is not only what you did to their bodies, but the assault to their psyches and souls and the assault to the well-being of the larger community in which we all live.’
I think one of the most eloquent statements that was made, was that of the lead prosecutor:
‘Sandusky’s statement yesterday was an insult to the true victims…and an insult to human decency…but that’s not a surprise.’
‘He displayed deviance, narcissism, a lack of acknowledgement for the pain he caused others.
‘It was a masterpiece of banal self-delusion. The self-referential and ludicrous statement should disappear as if it never existed.
‘It was, in short, ridiculous. He displayed the same cowardice that he displayed when he preyed on children.’

“I’m responding to the worst loss of my life. First, I looked at myself. Over and over, I asked why? Why didn’t we have a fair opportunity to prepare for trial? Why have so many people suffered as a result of false allegations? What’s the purpose? Maybe it will help others; some vulnerable children who could be abused, might not be because of all the publicity. That would be nice, but I’m not sure about it. I would cherish the opportunity to become a candle for others, as they have been a light for me. They could take away my life, they could make me out as a monster, they could treat me as a monster, but they can’t take away my heart. In my heart, I know I did not do these alleged disgusting acts. My wife has been my only sex partner that was after marriage. Our love continues. A young man who was dramatic a veteran accuser, and always sought attention, started everything. He was joined by a well-orchestrated effort of the media, investigators, the system, Penn State, psychologists, civil attorneys and other accusers. They won. I’ve wondered what they really won: Attention, financial gain, prestige… will all be temporary. Before you blame me, as others have, look at everything and everybody. Look at the preparation for the trial and the trial. Compare it to others. Think about what happened. Why, and who made it happen? Evaluate the accusers and their families. Realize they didn’t come out of isolation. The accusers were products of many more people and experiences than me. Look at their confidants and their honesty. Think about how easy it was for them to turn on me given the information, attention and potential perks. I never labeled or put down them or their families. I tried and I cared, then asked for the same. Please realize all came to the Second Mile because of issues. Some of those may remain. We will continue to fight. We didn’t lose the proven facts, evidence, accurate locations and times. Anything can be said. We lost to speculation and stories that were influenced by people who wanted to convict me. We must fight unfairness and consistency and dishonesty. People need to be portrayed for who they really are. We’ve not been complainers. When we couldn’t have kids, we adopted. When we didn’t have time to prepare for a trial, we still gave it our best. We will fight for another chance. We have given many second chances, and now we’ll ask for one. It will take more than our effort. Justice will have to be more than just a word; fairness more than just a dream. It will take others: somebody apolitical with the courage to listen, to think about the unfairness, to have the guts to stand up and take the road less traveled. I ask for the strength to handle everything and willingness to surrender only to God, regardless of the outcome.”
“Some of these kids don’t have basic hygiene skills,” attorney Karl Rominger said. “Teaching a person to shower at the age of 12 or 14 sounds strange to some people, but people who work with troubled youth will tell you there are a lot of juvenile delinquents and people who are dependent who have to be taught basic life skills like how to put soap on their body.”
Rominger also explained that his college cross-country coach often showered with him as well as the team. I would be inclined to call that an inappropriate gay relationship. By college, you better damn well know how to shower and would have no excuse to be rubbed down by your coach, unless in fact you were gay.

Charles McCauley Jr. was rushing to his father’s home Saturday after learning of the older man’s death when the younger McCauley began suffering from chest pains. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports father and son died 1 hour and 7 minutes apart.
The elderly father, Charles McCauley Sr, 83, was enjoying a nice day at home which included the Pittsburgh Steelers preseason game and an unfortunate heart attack. Ironically, he 54-year-old son, Charles McCauley Jr, was AT the game when he started suffering from chest pains and had to be taken out by paramedics.
Father and son, same name, same game, and same way of death on the same day. This has got to be one of the most ironic stories yet.

There is a new showing that will be airing on Bravo, August 15th at 10pm: ‘Most Eligible Dallas’. It will feature these young, hot single girls and guys from Dallas and follow them on their day to day (or night to night). I know you may be thinking that this sounds familiar (Jersey Shore, Real World, etc.), but in fact these individuals already KNEW each other. So you see? It’s different.
Either way, they’re bound to start showing up in magazines, so you better get to know them. Here are the bios from Bravo:
Matt Nordgren: Matt is an all-American, blue-eyed Texan charmer. Formerly a quarterback at the University of Texas, Matt signed to play football professionally, until an injury shifted his path. Today, the ambitious 28-year old is partner in the family energy business. When it comes to the ladies, Matt definitely plays the field, but isn’t a player. Though often seen with a different girl on his arm, Matt is intrigued by the possibilities of an old fling, Neill Sklyer, who moves back to the city. His best friend, Courtney Kerr, calls herself Matt’s “gatekeeper” and definitely voices her disapproval of the women Matt surrounds himself with.
Courtney Kerr: An outspoken Southern Belle, Courtney’s keen fashion sense reflects her personality: fun, vibrant and unique. She enjoys working closely with Dallas-based jewelry designer and regularly attends fashion shows, claiming fashion is her drug. Courtney is determined to find true love, though her best friend, Matt Nordgren, is convinced that her standards are too high and unrealistic. She claims to have only platonic feelings for Matt, but is always quick to dismiss the women in his life.
Glenn Pakulak: A punter for the Oakland Raiders, Glenn has been enjoying the distractions in Dallas while waiting to see if the NFL lockout will be lifted. A guy’s guy with an unusually keen fashion sense, he energetically throws himself into everything he does. After ending a four-year relationship that couldn’t survive the long distance, Glenn has realized that he’s nowhere near ready to settle down. His effortless charm wins the ladies over; however his “two-date maximum” prevents anyone from getting too close. When the ex –girlfriend comes into town, Glenn is reminded of the good that came with being in a relationship and will have to decide if he should stick with the single life or rekindle a past romance.
Drew Ginsburg: Drew speaks his mind and wears his heart on his sleeve. A proud gay man, he prefers cars to couture. Drew works in the family business, which owns Boardwalk Auto Group and controls 10 car dealerships throughout the Dallas/Forth Worth area and in San Francisco. Over the past nine years, Drew has been on a remarkable weight loss journey, losing over 200 pounds. Tired of unfulfilling flings and short-lived relationships, Drew is determined to settle down and start a family. Drew also deals with unresolved feelings for an ex boyfriend and in order to move on, must resolve if there is anything left between the two.
Tara Harper: With her bright blonde hair and curvaceous figure, Tara is the quintessential Dallas girl. She has gained financial independence as the Executive Vice President of Sales for her family’s manufacturing company, however, her real passion is her charity. Tara has called off four engagements in the past, but hasn’t given up the hope that her soul mate is still out there. Tara has a long list of rules about dating, which may contribute to her difficulty in finding the right guy. With a pattern of jumping from one relationship to the next, Tara is planning to be single a while, but finds that she has to reconsider when a friend becomes something more.
Neill Skylar: After moving away at the young age of 18 to support herself as a musician and actress in Los Angeles and New York City, Neill has returned to her hometown. She is quickly re-acclimating to Dallas, while embracing her most important role as a new mom. The singer/songwriter is working hard to gain recognition for her new band. She lives with her 1-year old son and believes that one can still have fun and be a hot mama. Neill is trying to find her place in Dallas with the help of long-time friend, Matt Nordgren. Though Neill and Matt both say they aren’t looking for something serious, the two can’t deny their chemistry.
