By most accounts, Jerry Sandusky faces a minimum sentence of 60 years in prison after being convicted on 45 counts of sexually abusing young boys--at his age, essentially a life sentence. But lost in that afterglow is that a federal probe of his rampage is still ongoing. While it is currently focusing on a cover-up on the part of higher-ups in State College, I'm hoping that the feds turn the hot lights on Sandusky as well.
For those who don't know, the feds have jurisdiction here because Sandusky took a boy with him to a Penn State bowl game at least twice. There would be no double jeopardy if the feds decide to bring charges against him. Moreover, under federal law, crossing a state line to have sex with a minor is punishable by a minimum of 30 years in federal prison--a sentence that would all but assure Sandusky dies behind a cell just in case there's the possibility of parole on the state charges.
There's a pretty good chance that former Penn State president Graham Spanier could wind up in an orange jumpsuit as a result of the federal probe, along with a bunch of other administrators. But considering that there's evidence Sandusky was abusing kids as early as the 1970s, I'm hoping Sandusky gets rung up on federal charges as well.
