Jerry Sandusky Releases Jailhouse Recording Where He Claims His Innocence

Jerry Sandusky.

Two words have never gone across someone’s lips with such disgust.  The man whose gross indecencies rocked a university, a community, a nation, will be sentenced today on 45 counts of child sexual abuse for molesting 10 boys over a 15 year span.  Most people are expecting what will equate to a life sentence as Sandusky is 68 years old.

If it wasn’t enough that he crippled a university and ruined these young boys lives, Sandusky has released audio from his new home where he proclaims his innocence.  The mindless rambling that Sandusky gives is a peak into just how detached from reality this animal really is.  Have a listen to the audio below.  For those at work, it is transcribed as well.



“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 as a result 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 can take away my life, they can make me out as a monster, they can 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 and that was after marriage. Our love continues.


A young man who is dramatic and 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 to proven facts, evidence, accurate locations and times. Anything can be said. We lost to speculation and stories influenced by people who wanted to convict me. We must fight unfairness, inconsistency and dishonesty. People need to be portrayed for who they really are. We’ve not been complainers, and we couldn’t have kids we adopted, and we didn’t have time to prepare for trial. We still gave it our beset. We will fight for another chance. We have given many second chances and now will ask for one.


It will take more than our effort. Justice will have to be more than just a word, fairness be 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 the willingness to surrender only to God, regardless of the outcome.”

He begins his statement with questions on why or what motives the people who brought him down had.  Very quickly he proclaims that he did not do these “disgusting acts”.  It is in the third paragraph that I wanted to punch a hole in his chest.  He claims the young men, with help from “the media, investigators, the system, Penn State, psychologists, civil attorneys and other accusers”, had won and gained the attention they wanted.  He says the “attention, financial gain, prestige will all be temporary”.

Buckle up.

First of all, the attorneys for Jerry Sandusky should be slapped for letting this demented old man have a voice from behind bars.  What did they think he was going to write?  Something that made sense?  He is clearly senile and, might as well rhyme here, in denial.  To proclaim innocence is one thing, but to say that the VICTIMS were out to get attention is just plain insane.  Find one man on Earth who would make up a story about a man three times his age raping him.  What is worse is that he groups Penn State in with the people who helped the victims!

Sandusky goes on to imagine what they had “won” and uses the three worst examples of any kind of positive that would be able to come from this scandal. This kind of “attention” is something that no one, or any institution of high learning, would want.  Financial gain?  Did no one drop Jerry a note in the clink telling him he cost Penn State $60 million and crippled their football program for about the next 10 years?  Prestige?  I don’t think I even need to approach the thought of any of this bringing prestige to anyone.

The rest of his recording plays like a broken record.  Complaining of inadequate time for his defense to prepare for trial and that they did not lose to “proven facts, evidence, accurate locations and times”.  In Jerry’s World, eye witness accounts and testimony from victims does not count as evidence.

It is clear Sandusky and his crack legal team are just waiting for his sentencing so they can move forward with their appeal.  Even if they do go through the appeals process and get his sentencing reduced, most are predicting 30 years, Sandusky will more than likely spend the rest of his life behind bars.

Jerry Sandusky will be sentenced today in Pennsylvania and it is expected that at least half a dozen victims will address the judge at the hearing.
