Posted October 23, 2012 on AP on Fox
Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky is serving his child molestation prison sentence at an institution in far southwestern Pennsylvania that includes most of the state's death row inmates. The Corrections Department announced Wednesday that Sandusky was transferred to Greene State Prison after being evaluated at a facility outside Harrisburg. Prison officials say he'll be placed in protective custody because of the nature of his crimes and his high profile. The 68-year-old Sandusky was convicted this summer of 45 criminal counts for the sexual abuse of 10 boys over 15 years. He maintains his innocence and is pursuing appeals. He's serving a 30- to 60-year sentence that means he's likely to die in prison.
