Jerry Sandusky releases audio statement from prison

Eric P. Mull-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Jerry Sandusky maintained his innocence in a audio statement released from prison on Monday.

Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, who was convicted of child molestation in June, continued to maintain his innocence in an audio statement released Monday. Sandusky is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 9.

Sandusky, who is currently being held in the Centre County Correctional Facility, continued to claim to be innocent while blaming others for his conviction. Sandusky called the conviction a "well orchestrated effort" by the media, investigators, Penn State and others.

"In my heart, I know I did not do these alleged disgusting acts," Sandusky said in the statement.

Sandusky continued to question the trial and other proceedings which led to a jury finding him guilty of 45 counts of child sexual abuse.

"Over and over, I asked why? Why didn't we have a fair opportunity to prepare for trial? Why have so many people suffered as a result of false allegations? What's the purpose?" Sandusky said.

Sandusky said he will continue to fight. He said he didn't lose to facts, but instead was convicted based on speculation.

"We will continue to fight. We didn't lose the proven facts, evidence, accurate locations and times. Anything can be said. We lost to speculation and stories that were influenced by people who wanted to convict me," Sandusky said.

The complete audio statement can be heard via Penn State ComRadio, with transcription available from Matthew Keys.
