HARRISBURG – Gov. Tom Corbett released the following statement on the conviction of Jerry Sandusky in Centre County court tonight on his official Facebook page.
“First, I want to thank the jury for their willingness to serve on such a difficult case.”
“I also want to commend the multiple victims in this case who had the courage to come forward and testify in court, confronting Sandusky, and proving beyond a reasonable doubt that he is guilty of these reprehensible crimes.”
“The agents and prosecutors of the Attorney General’s Office, as well as the Pennsylvania State Police, also deserve a great deal of credit for today’s verdict. They pursued every lead, gathering evidence from multiple victims, in order to bring this man to justice.”
