Sandusky’s Sentencing

Did you hear the remarks from some of Jerry Sandusky’s sexual abuse victims?  As a psychologist, I’ve assessed criminals who were pleading not guilty by reason of insanity. I have also treated numerous sexual abuse survivors. Their words powerfully reflect their pain.

One of Sandusky’s victims, known as Victim No. 5, addressed the court during his sentencing.

“The sentence will never erase what he did to me. It will never make me whole,” the victim said. “He must pay for his crimes, take into account the tears, the pain, the private anguish.”

“I will not forgive you, Jerry Sandusky,” Victim No. 4 said, according to Jean Casarez of “In Session.” “I will not forgive you, but I ask that all the other victims forgive me for not coming forward sooner.”

“If you seek forgiveness, Jesus will forgive you. There’s not any other way. Please repent, or there is a bigger judgment to come,” Victim No. 6 said.
