Saturday - 6/23/2012, 2:26am EDT
(AP) - Reaction to the conviction of Jerry Sandusky on 45 of 48 counts of child sexual abuse:
"The sentence that Jerry will receive will be a life sentence." _ Defense lawyer Joe Amendola.
"One of the recurring themes in this case was: Who would believe a kid? The answer is: We here in Bellefonte, Pa., would believe a kid." _ Attorney General Linda Kelly.
"Nobody wins. We've all lost." _ The mother of Victim 6, who testified against Sandusky in court.
"Today a jury did what so many other people and institutions failed to do _ they held Jerry Sandusky accountable for sexually abusing children. This jury broke years of silence about Sandusky's systematic targeting, grooming and abuse of children and finally delivered justice." _ Justine Andronici and Andrew Shubin, lawyers for Victims 3 and 7 and Matt Sandusky.
"The University wants to provide a forum where the University can privately, expeditiously and fairly address the victims' concerns and compensate them for claims relating to the University." _ Statement from PSU President Rodney Erickson.
"Rot in hell!" _ Yelled to Sandusky as he was taken to a sheriff's cruiser to be driven to the Centre County Correctional Facility.
"Although we understand the task of healing is just beginning, today's verdict is an important milestone. The community owes a measure of gratitude to the jurors for their diligent service. Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the victims and their families." _ The Paterno family.
