Bellefonte, Pennsylvania - Former Penn State Coach Jerry Sandusky Found Guilty.

Jerry Sandusky was found guilty on 45 out of 48 counts, relating to sexual abuse

of 10 boys over a 15-year period.

The jury reached a verdict, after deliberating for 21 hours.

Jurors listened to seven days of testimony, including detailed accounts from
 
eight young men who said they were victims of his abuse.
 

Sandusky, 68, pleaded not guilty to the 48 charges of child sex abuse.

On Tuesday, Sandusky's wife told jurors that she could remember at least six of her

husband's accusers staying overnight at their house, but she never witnessed

any sexual abuse.

 Sandusky showed no emotion as the verdict was read. Judge John Cleland ordered his arrest.
 
Sandusky was removed from the court house in handcuffs and taken to Centre County jail.
 
The defense suggested the accusers had financial motive to make up stories and that
 
investigators coached witnesses.
