Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was convicted Friday of sexually assaulting 10 boys over 15 years, a scandal that shook the storied football program to its core and caused the university to fire legendary football coach Joe Paterno.
65-year-old Sandusky was led from the courtroom is handcuffs after being found guilty of 45 of 48 counts. He faces the possibility of life in prison.
Sandusky showed little emotion as the verdict was read. The judge ordered him to be taken to the county jail to await sentencing in about three months, and he was led from the courthouse in handcuffs as bystanders hurled insults at him. One yelled at him to "rot in hell," to which Sandusky shook his head.
