Jerry Sandusky gets 30-60 years in prison

BELLEFONTE, Pennsylvania - Former Pennsylvania State University football coach Jerry Sandusky was ordered to spend at least 30 years in prison on Tuesday for sexually abusing at-risk boys for more than a decade, a sentence likely to keep him behind bars until he dies.

The one-time coach, who has been in solitary confinement, will be at least 98 years old before he is eligible for parole. He will be transferred to the Camp Hill State Correctional Institution for evaluation to determine which of the 25 state prisons will house him.

Because his conviction as a child molester makes him a target, he will likely be placed in isolation or protective custody.
