Thirty years. You’d think he’d be shocked and keep his mouth shut, but no, slime still slithers out of his mouth. Not words, but garbage.
“You abused the trust of those who trusted you,” said Judge Cleveland at Jerry Sandusky’s sentencing.
Still, Sandusky denied his guilt. “I did not do these alleged disgusting acts.”
He quoted from a letter written by a boy who called him a “savior for his life” and said that he “brought joy to children through activities like water balloon fights.”
When my former husband was sentenced August 30, 2007 he apologized to his family for being “so stupid,” but never said he was sorry for collecting pornographic photos of little girls on his computer. He believed, because he never touched a child, but merely collected pornography, he should have been considered innocent. “Only looking”, in his mind, was harmless.
The senior prosecutor said that Sandusky’s statement was a “masterpiece in banal self delusion”. How true. Is it impossible for men who are found guilty of illegal and morally abhorrent actions to admit their guilt for what they have done? It seems as if it is.
