BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) -- Former Penn State University assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky has been found guilty of 45 counts of child sex abuse.
The 68-year-old was reported to have stood motionless in court as the Centre County, Pa., jury returned its verdict after two days, roughly 21 hours, of deliberation.
He was led from the courthouse in handcuffs. Bail was revoked. He will be sentenced in 90 days and likely will spend the rest of his life in jail.
The allegations against Sandusky, a longtime assistant to legendary Penn State coach Joe Paterno and at one time the man many figured most likely to succeed him, rocked State College, Pa., and the nation.
Through a charity Sandusky founded, the Second Mile Foundation, which worked with trouble youths, Sandusky sought out and befriended young boys, whom he later was found to have sexually abused.
The jury heard from eight men who said they had been sexually molested by Sandusky, offering graphic and wrenching accounts of abuse on the Penn State campus or in Sandusky's home.
