Two years after former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was arrested on child molestation charges, the scandal continues to play out.
BELLEFONTE, Pa. - Prosecutors say as many as half a dozen of Jerry Sandusky's molestation victims will be heard at his sentencing hearing.
On Tuesday, a judge will sentence the former Penn State assistant football coach on 45 counts of child sexual abuse. The 68-year-old Sandusky faces the likelihood of a sentence that would keep him in prison for the rest of his life.
Lead prosecutor Joe McGettigan said Monday that the victims would speak at the hearing.
Sandusky also is expected to speak and to assert his innocence.
Defense attorney Karl Rominger says the sentencing proceeding may be over in less than two hours.
Sandusky plans to appeal his conviction on charges he abused 10 boys over 15 years, including attacks inside Penn State athletics facilities.
