Sandusky gets at least 30 years for child sex abuse Tue October 9, 2012
"I did not do these disgusting acts," he told the court several times, calling his situation "the worst loss of my life.“
"I will cherish the opportunity to be a candle for others," he said, adding that "somehow, some way, something good will come out of this.“
Sandusky addressed the court for about 13 minutes. His wife, Dottie, had tears in her eyes.
The judge acknowledged Sandusky's "positive work" -- an apparent reference to his charity for young people -- but said it served only to hide his true character. “All the qualities that make you successful concealed your vices," Cleland said. "This, in my view, makes you dangerous."

Boy Scouts to report pedophiles missed previously
PORTLAND, Ore. - The Boy Scouts of America plan to begin doing what critics argue they should have done decades ago , bring suspected abusers named in the organization's so-called perversion files to the attention of police departments and sheriff's offices across the country.
The Scouts have, until now, argued they did all they could to prevent sex abuse within their ranks by spending a century tracking pedophiles and using those records to keep known sex offenders out of their organization. But a court-ordered release of the perversion files from 1965 to 1985, expected sometime in October, has prompted Scouts spokesman Deron Smith to say the organization will go back into the files and report any offenders who may have fallen through the cracks.
Smith said Mike Johnson, the group's youth protection director and a former police detective, will lead the review.
