This morning I was back at the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte for the next chapter of the Jerry Sandusky case. The trial in June found Sandusky guilty of 45 charges stemming from child sexual abuse of multiple victims. Today was the sentencing for the former Penn State defensive coordinator.
As I pulled up to the courthouse the news trucks were humming as live broadcasts were scattered throughout the front lawn. In the back dozens of photographers and videographers crowded along the barriors.
As all the attorney’s and Sandusky himself arrived I did video. It was amazing to hear the amount of shutter clicks as he got out of the car and walked in. To watch and listen you can view the video on the Centre Daily Times website.
Once Sandusky was sentenced to 30-60 years behind bars we took our posts waiting for him to walk out. This time I had the video camera set up on a tripod so was able to capture a few photos too.
After Sandusky was taken back to the county jail the defense and prosecution talked to the media outside of the courthouse.
Till the next piece of the scandal hopefully no early mornings at the courthouse.
