Jerry Sandusky to be resentenced Friday on child sex crimes

Former Penn State assistant football coach was convicted in 2012 on 45 counts of child sexual abuse

While Penn State is reportedly investigating new allegations of sex crimes committed by Jerry Sandusky, the former assistant football coach will be sentenced again Friday for past crimes.

Sandusky, now 75, was convicted in 2012 on 45 counts of child sexual abuse. He was sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison, but Pennsylvania’s state Superior Court ruled last February the mandatory minimum sentences had not been properly applied.

Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky is scheduled to be resentenced again Friday.

Meanwhile, Penn State is reportedly investigating new allegations of abuse from Sandusky, according to CNN.
