PA--Group to Sandusky: “Stop torturing your victims”
For immediate release: Thursday, May 7
We’re saddened that Jerry Sandusky insists on torturing his victims by continued and callous ‘Hail Mary’ legal filings. He’s partially right: his trial moved quickly. We submit that’s common sense: When a dangerous predator walks free, the justice system should move quickly to get him behind bars where he can’t hurt others.
Sandusky whines that a TV interview he gave may have hurt his case. Well, he chose to do that. No one forced him to sit for an interview.
His claim that his victims had a financial incentive is simply cruel.
It’s been almost three years since Sandusky was convicted of heinous child sex crimes. It’s time for him to give it a rest and quietly serve his time so his victims can heal.
We hope Sandusky’s effort fails, he shuts up, and closure can happen.
